You know what I love about summer? It's acceptable to eat ice cream or frozen yogurt at any hour of the day. Noon? Sure. 3pm? Have to. 6pm? Makes a great, post-beach dinner. 9pm? Best way to end the day.
So imagine my surprise and delight when I discovered that a new, swirl your own frozen yogurt place had opened in my hometown of Newton. There I was, driving to my usual dinner spot, when I noticed it - a hot pink and neon green utopia of frozen deliciousness.
Sweet Tart is located next door to Bill's Pizza on Beacon Street. This place is clearly a high school hang out, which is a bit jarring when you're used to adults-only neighborhoods.
I love the high fructose look of the Sweet Tart decor. You get a contact sugar high as soon as you have both feet in the door!
Naturally I zero-ed in on the fuchsia chandelier above the frozen yogurt machines. This is dream, girly decor!
In addition to the multitude of frozen yogurt flavors, Sweet Tart has two entire walls dedicated to candy toppings.
In addition to the candy, Sweet Tart has a separate buffet of fresh fruit. One of the Sweet Tart employees was hard at work furiously chopping the tops off of fresh strawberries while we were perusing the goodies.
In the end, I decided on raspberry frozen yogurt topped with chocolate chips, shredded coconut and gummi bears.
What can I say? I was in my hometown. I regressed.
If you're in the Newton Centre area and you need a sugar fix, I highly recommend Sweet Tart. Sure beats waiting in line with screaming kids at J.P. Licks.
