It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like...

.... Frozen yogurt, as in Red Mango. Wow! What happened to that OTB facade? It seems like it was there just last week.

Just a clarification: I don't know if this is what the Red Mango storefront is going to look like. This is what the adjacent space to it looks like, and we don't yet know what it will be.

My friend took the pic so I didn't realize this pic doesn't include the Red Mango space on the corner of this building.

  1. Wow, it looks better already. So glad they got rid of those glass blocks, which seemed to have been there since the 70s. I hope Red Mango does well there. It's nice that we're getting something in that space besides another bank. Glad Chipotle is also moving into the neighborhood.

  2. Forest hills does not need red mango. How much fro yo can one town consume? This is getting comical.

    Since the Mayor will be banning oversized sodas and therefore reducing calorie consumption, all New Yorkers will be required to eat one frozen yogurt each week to support the influx of yogurt shops.

  4. Technically sugar is not fattening, and neither is fat. The only thing that really counts is total caloric intake, so as long as you consume no more than you burn, you won't gain weight, no matter the type of calories. Sugary foods and fatty foods tend to be more caloricly dense, which is why eating a lot of it leads to weight gain. That being said, low fat or fat free yogurt is considered a health food as it is less caloricly dense and has vital nutients such as calcium and protien. Just stay away from the flavored kind which has more calories. Sugar amounts and regular fat (not saturated or trans) only really affect those who are diabetic or cholesterol sensitive. Sugar does not lead to diabetes, only total weight gain is a true indicator.
