Finally went there the other day and it wasn't really as fantastic as everyone made it out to be. The yogurt was alright I guess but way over priced I would have been just as happy with one from Mickey Ds. It is nice to have new places to go to though.

I went there today. Of course it is overpriced, what isnt? Cant wait to go back and let the grandaughters dig into all those toppings. Their parents wont be all that happy, but if they are nice, I might let them go.

between radio shack and starbucks in Beckley Crossing. their peach was pretty good. Still think I like Berkshires better. But with all the toppings they have, I will probably be going to Frogs more; since i usually leave those decisions to the bosses.

I thought it was a good price. Me and my two kids all ate for under 9 dollars.

Does that mean they are closed on Sundays like Chick-fil-A and Hobby Lobby?

Oak Hill, I agree on price, I was just making a comment on all prices. since they weigh the yogurt you can control your size and price.

IDK if they are closed on Sunday, but I would assume they are.

You know, why would you want to discourage or disparage a new business? Just go somewhere else. I haven't been to Sweet Frog, but kids seem to like it. It's in a perfect place for before/after movies. I hope it does well!!

That's granpa's job my friend. Get 'em wired up on sugar and take them back home. It's a form of payback for the parent's younger years. lol

My family enjoyed our visit to SweetFrog in Beckley. It was expensive, so for my family, it won't be an all the time event. I appreciated the fresh fruit topping selection. The yogurt was very good. It's just nice to have something different in Beckley.

TCBY was my favorite. I do enjoy Sweet Frog tho, it's a nice change and I don't think the prices are unreasonable either.

Cute little place. Too small to accomodate the crowd. It will die down I guess. Would like to take my girls there. It was over-priced though. For three small cups, it was over $12.00!!! They base the price by weight.

I don't think it was better than Bellacinos. I LOVE their icecream!

I agree with you. People keep saying that it's reasonably priced, but I think it is quite expensive. It was still good, though. My family isn't swimming in loot, so we can't go all of the time. It was over $4 per cup at Sweet Frog. I can buy a half gallon at Kroger for $2.99 and it feeds the whole family.

I think part of the draw is for the experience rather than just for the yogurt - like half food, half entertainment. You can rent a Redbox for a buck and sit on your couch to watch it, but that isn't the same thing as the experience of going out to a movie theater.
