Forget about Swirl Whirl, Yapple Yogurt and FroYo. WHS now has its own frozen yogurt machine located in Cafeteria B.
Food Service Director Ms. Kathryn Tropeano came up with the idea of having frozen yogurt as a menu option so that students can have “something a little more fun to eat once in awhile.”
Said sophomore Anna O'Brian, “I haven't been able to try the froyo in the cafeteria yet, but I really want to. If it's good tasting and good for you, froyo will be the best thing in the cafeteria.”
According to Tropeano, the machine is also a way for the cafeteria to compete with businesses downtown. “I liked the idea of offering the same thing you can get downtown, without the parking hassles and for less money,” said Tropeano. The frozen yogurt comes in a small bowl for $2.50 or a large bowl for $3.50, plus 25 cents for each topping.
Said junior Elisabeth Neylan, “Frozen yogurt is satisfying and refreshing at the same time, and it's a great healthy alternative to the sweets in the cafeteria.”
The frozen yogurt is fat free and comes in chocolate, vanilla or swirl. Students can choose from a variety of healthy topping choices such as toasted walnuts, organic granola and craisins, just to name a few. In addition, the yogurt is gluten-free, providing another menu option for students that cannot have gluten products.
Students are already excited for new flavors. Sophomore Alberto Ortis suggested that there be a variety of flavors like hazelnut and espresso in addition to chocolate and vanilla.
According to Tropeano, the food services department “is always trying to come up with new ideas that will keep our customers happy. I’m open to any and all suggestions and truly love getting feedback from students, so please do ... come down to the Cafeteria Office at any time to talk with me!”
