A sweet swirly treat: Lacey’s very own fro-yo hotspot
Myki Dee Kim, Staff Writer
In a cup or cone, frozen yogurt is perfect for the warm weather that is just on the horizon. Limeberry sits on the outskirts of campus and has been a quintessential part of Saint Martin’s students sweet treat experience. Students may know Limeberry as a frozen yogurt establishment right next door to the Starbucks on College Street, while others may know it as a fundraising partner for Saint Martin’s clubs and organizations. Whatever the case, Limeberry brings a sweet presence to the entire Lacey community.
As soon as you walk in, you are greeted by friendly staff and an extremely clean and spacious store. They are open every day of the week from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. When you walk towards the back you must make the choice between a cup or a cone (a hard decision). Customers are able to choose from 10 flavors and are able to mix-and-match their own yogurt experiences; they can even swirl two flavors together to get double the yummy treat.
After choosing their favorite combination, customers can move onto the coveted topping section. There are over 25 different toppings that people can choose from. Toppings include, but are not limited to: fresh fruits, hot fudge, assorted cookies, nuts, candy options, and even whipped cream. I went for my usual mix of Dole Pineapple Whip, Strawberry, and Vanilla topped with fresh strawberry, cheesecake bites, and mini chocolate chips.
If you are not into frozen yogurt, do not worry; Limeberry has got you covered. Limeberry also offers options for smoothies and even bubble tea. Smoothie options include: Peach, Wild Berry, Strawberry, Green Apple, and Pineapple Dole Whip. Bubble Tea options include Strawberry, Vanilla, Coconut, Pineapple, Mango, Avocado, Japanese Green Tea, Honeydew, Passion Fruit, Taro, Lavender, Green Apple, Banana, Watermelon, Blueberry, Chocolate, Mocha, Lychee, and Guava. They have a little something for everybody.
But what do these all cost? Limeberry offers affordable goodies for all price ranges, especially for those who are balling on a college budget. Smoothies are $3.75 and Bubble Tea is slightly higher at $3.95 a cup. For Frozen Yogurt lovers, it is just $0.59 an ounce. Make sure to not go overboard on the toppings and filling your cup, as it may cost you a pretty penny. Limeberry will also give students a 10 percent discount with their valid Saint Martin’s ID, and $1 off your order if it is your birthday. Make sure to sign up for their rewards when you go in to visit.
Since coming to Saint Martin’s four years ago, Limeberry remains as the top sweet treat spot around campus. I can always rely on them to have the flavors and toppings I want while having a wonderful staff to greet and work with you.
