Bay Ridge goes sweet for ‘Sweetie’

The Brooklyn Paper

How sweetie it is.

Bay Ridge has a new frozen yogurt shop, now that Sweetie opened on Third Avenue last Wednesday and promptly served a thick crowd.

“This frozen yogurt is perfect,” said Denise Costa, who lives on 87th Street. “It’s healthy and delicious; it’s a must try.”

This is the second frozen yogurt shop in Bay Ridge, but it is a first for the southern tip.

“We had to open a place like this here,” said manager Gordon Goguo. “You’re surrounded by coffee shops and bakeries, but the neighborhood needed a healthy treat.”

Sweetie offers frozen yogurt in a variety of flavors, all of which can be topped with a choice of 16 toppings like cheesecake, blueberry and sprinkles ($4.25 with three toppings).

Our tasting panel went with a strawberry, mango and kiwi flavor, and relished its balance of sour and sweet — and the fact that it contained a mere 90 calories.

Sweetie [9104 Third Ave. between 91st and 92nd streets in Bay Ridge, (718) 759-0008]. Mon-Fri, 10:30 am-9:30 pm; Sat, 10:30 am-10 pm; and Sun, 11 am-9 pm.

I went there right after reading this article. It is really no different than other yogurt places, comes right out of the machine. Not too many flavors to choose from, I drove all the way to the Verrezano Brdige for nothing.

This articles information is completely false. This place does not have 16 toppings. The prices are wrong. I bought two small yogurts for my daughter and myself it cost almost 12 dollars!! I drove to bay ridge from Bensonhurst for nothing. Lastly what is called "variety" is not correct. I wouldn't call three flavor options variety.

My mouth aches in wonder trying to realize whether or not this is ice cream. The flavors are amazing, delicious yet unpredictably mouth watering. The price is well worth it. The small looks like a small bucket so don't complain. I mean imagine getting a large. You probably wouldn't be able to carry it out of the store. The sizes are BIG. Trust a sista.
