Tag Archives: Alpine Vanilla


Freeze Frozen Yogurt at 3806 Bridgeport Way West (Green Firs Shopping Center), University Place, WA has been around for about six months and the employees (owner?) was friendly. They have ten flavors (Mango Tango, Alpine Vanilla, Pomegranate Raspberry, Thin Mint,Cake Batter, Milk Chocolate, Hawaiian Pineapple, Sweet Coconut,Cheesecake and Lemon Bar) at any one time and a nice assortment of toppings.

On the way home this little girl was wandering around in the street, stopping traffic. How could I leave her there? So I scooped her up and brought her home. After an hour or so the owner called me back and we took her home. She was a very sweet dog, but growled at our two pups.

Update: June 2015. There is a sign up at Freeze that says they are closed because of mechanical issues, but the sign has been up for a while and I wonder if they are just closed.

Gibson’s Westgate

Gibson’s Frozen Yogurt at Westgate, 5916 North 26th Street, Tacoma, opened in May about a year after the original Gibson’s opened in the Stadium District. It has the same wonderful yogurt as the Stadium location and it also features Corina Bakery pastries, Valhalla Coffee and Mad Hat Tea — all local companies. This location has more extensive outside seating and the interior is more spacious.

Dear daughter and I sampled almost all of the flavors before going with the Pistachio and I also had some fresh blueberries and raspberries. Dear daughter went with the classic rainbow sprinkles.  Their other flavors this week included  Alpine Vanilla, Dark Chocolate, Euro-Tart, Peach Mango Tart, Very Strawberry, Mango Tango sorbet, Very Berry sorbet, NSA Raspberry, Red Velvet, Cake Batter and Cookies & Cream!
