Went to Dunkin Donuts this afternoon and went thru the drive-thru. Orange Leaf was open. They had a few tables and chairs set outside. Do they have good froven yougurt?

I just tried it. It's nothing special.
The kids that worked there were very nice though.
Alot of people may like it, but I don't like artificial sweetener. It leaves an after taste and gives me a headache.
I asked the girl if they had anything with real sugar and she said, no. I started to leave, but bought a small serving to be polite.

I think that a Marble Slab or Cold Stone would do better here in Somerset.

Yep they're open! Absolutely exceeded my expectations in every way.

That is one SWEET place to visit. I got out of my car and felt like I was being pulled in both directions. Dunkin or Orange Leaf? I'm just a little giddy right now. Must be a sugar buzz!

Overheard a man and a woman discussing something coming in the remaining space but didn't hear what it was.

I looked up the ingredients list online and everything was listed as having pure cane sugar as the second or third ingredient. That's not artificial.. Don't get it. Didn't see artificial sweeteners listed.

I checked as well, with the same results. It's kind of sad that someone would go to such lengths just so they could post a negative comment about a new business.

Glad to hear it. When I asked, she said everything had "sweetener" in it. She was real nice, but did sound a little unsure. Thanks

I went to Orange Leaf today and Twisted Pineapple last night. Twisted Pineapple does not close at 10 on weeknights. They close at 8. I was there around 8:30 last night and they let us in anyway. All in all, I prefer Twisted Pineapple not only because it's local but they have a better selection of toppings. They also have wonderful cupcakes and I have never had a bad experience there. They will both do well though, I am sure.

I love that twisted p is a local owned place, but orange leaf just tastes better and costs less. It is creamy and smooth, and twisted p seems to have more ice crystals than yogurt. I will definately be keeping them busy at OL, i love it.

I'm not much of frozen yogurt fan, but will give Orange Leaf a try as soon as the weather gets a bit warmer. Quite honestly, being "locally owned" is so low on my priority list, you'd be hard pressed to find it at all. I'm more interested in supporting businesses that provide a good product with cordial service at a fair price, regardless of ownership.

Loving OL. Not sure about the quality of TP as I don't ever think to go there because I seldom ever go to that shopping center. Can't imagine being much difference in the quality and hope they are both successful.

Husband and I tried Orange Leaf this evening with mixed results. The frozen yogurt was really, really good. Very thick and creamy for something that is low fat. Neither of us tried the toppings, but then again nothing screamed "you've got to try me." They only have two sizes of cups, big and gargantuan. Sure wish they had something a bit smaller for those of us who are limiting sweets. As someone else said, it isn't cheap. My "small" cup was perhaps 1/3 filled and husband's was about 1/2 full; neither had any toppings. Cost was $5. I suspect that a family of four who had 4 large or extra large cups could be looking at a pretty steep bill. The service people were pleasant, but, all were teenagers and they seemed to be having a difficult time ringing people up. The biggest turn off, however, was that the seats were filthy. It looked as if no one had cleaned up all day, so we ate out in the car. I suspect a lot of the negatives we experienced were symptomatic of a new opening. However, if they had some adult supervision, I'm convinced that things would be much better. We're going to give it a month or so to let things settle and try again.

We were sharing comparisons on OL and TP so I wanted to give mine.
We tried TP this afternoon. We all agreed that TP beats OL hands down.
Better, creamier and more natural tasting. It was cleaner inside and we didn't feel smothered by the employees. Easier parking also.
I have heard that their cupcakes are excellent but we didn't try them this time.
I will not be going back to Orange Leaf. We have found a home at Twisted Pineapple.
