BLK 513

Black is the absence of color, so they say. But for others, black can also mean the absence of guilt and the absence of unhealthy fat. So for a cream-based treat, BLK 513's black and brooding yogurt is definitely a mystery waiting to be indulged.

Much to my surprise (and subtle delight), Frozen Yogurt has taken a leap off the white and antiseptic look to sport a perfectly contrasted aesthetic. Mixed reactions can be seen as consumers get a first glance at the black and shadowy figure of the frozen yogurt; but as the saying goes, first impressions never last.

BLK 513 boasts its specialization in making Frozen Yogurt that is “Charcoal-enhanced” hence the term, “Dark Skim”. The activated charcoal acts as a detoxifying agent that contains better and healthier nutrients than other sugar-clad “Froyos” out there. The frozen goodie also has US premium Greek yogurt, which boasts its signature thick and creamy texture. Expect a dessert that goes straight to the heart, in a perfectly good way.

BLK 513 only has a couple of choices, but the recommendation would be the Dark Skim Cup and Dark Skim Cone. It’s a good menu option since the recommended products are highly customizable. The Dark Skim Cup consists of 1 crunch, 2 fruits, and 1 sauce. The Dark Skim Cone, on the other hand, is layered with crunch, fruit, and sauce of your choice.

I guess, what I love about BLK 513 is that it’s a very black and white store. You line up. You order. You choose your toppings. You eat. You indulge. The functionality of the store’s behavior and the uniqueness of the product's concept, truly delivers a message that Froyos are definitely back in town. 

But let’s not end leave it at surface level. One can get all giddy when faced with the amazing choices of BLK 513. You can really get busy in choosing what to combine with your Froyo as you dawdle over the fun and quirky flavor labels in front of you. The excitement is amplified with the fact that what you’re eating won’t land you in the guilty corner of the food department.

For its price and experience, BLK 513’s Frozen Yogurt is truly an exciting delight for those who are willing to taste something a bit different than your typical local dessert. Yes, an acquired taste might be considered, but nevertheless, the black and brooding Yogurt will keep us coming back for more.

Talk about, guilt-free.
