Park Slope's War on Dessert Continues With Fro-Yo Fury

New, 18 comments

The battle against ice cream vendors in Prospect Park has subsided, but that doesn't mean Park Slope parents are giving up the war on dessert. DNAinfo reports that half a dozen new frozen yogurt shops have flooded the kid-filled 'hood, and parents are not happy about it. A sign announcing the forthcoming "Yogurtland" was graffitied with "WTF? Another one?" and a commenter on Here's Park Slope, complained "How many frozen yogurt places can Park Slopers handle? What's this place becoming? Land of designer pizzas and fro-yos? I should seriously consider moving to Carroll Gardens or Clinton Hill."

Park Slope parents have been pissed off a lot lately, for some (semi) understandable reasons: new school zones rocked their world, their neighborhood smells like a urinal, and these noisy chickens are a nuisance. But if frozen treats made from local Hudson Valley milk topped with artisanal toppings like buckwheat honey can't please Park Slope, can anything?
