Well, here's another Five Points froyo operation closing shop. Winter can't be kind to such places. This one was in a nice new brick building at the corner of Santee & Blossom on the former Kenny's lot.

Yoghut, 278 Harbison Boulevard Suite J: February 2014 (moving)   1 comment

Yoghut moved into the old Quiznos location next to Barnes & Nobel in 2011 and stayed there until B&N closed.

Now they are in the process of moving across the plaza to a suite next to the Outback Steakhouse. I guess I can understand that their foot traffic in the old location would be greatly reduced with the closure of B&N, but it seems to me that the last thing people coming out of Outback are interested in is more food..

Yumilicious, 5086 Sunset Boulevard: 22 Decmeber 2013   2 comments

After the Forest Acres location closed in the fall of 2012, this Sunset Boulevard location was the chain's only remaining Midlands (or indeed South Carolina) location. In fact, looking at the Yumilicious website, it appears that all the remaining locations are in Texas.

I'm afraid I never stopped at either location, having more or less given up on anything yogurt related years ago since it all seems to be non-fat, or low-fat today. If I'm going to have a frozen treat, it's going to be full-fat..

TCBY, 800 Lake Murray Boulevard Suite H: 31 December 2012   6 comments

I'm pretty sure that when I first became aware of TCBY, their advertising slogan was This Can't Be Yogurt!. That's because at the time(I'm thinking maybe mid 1970s), yogurt, to the extent that anybody knew what it was at all, was thought of as a sour-ish dairy ingredient, something along the lines of sour cream or cheese. Certainly not something you would eat by itself, or for desert.

That certainly changed over the years, and gradually it seemed that the TCBY slogan became The Country's Best Yogurt!. Personally, while I like non-frozen yogurt, I never really was a huge fro-yo fan, and in particular if I walk into a shop and every spigot is "low" or "no" fat, I walk out again. Give me some high fat ice cream or soft-serv instead..

At any rate, this TCBY location hung on in the shopping center at the corner of Lake Murray Boulevard and Columbiana Drive for a good few years after the anchor Piggly Wiggly closed. I'm not sure of the exact date, but given that it was reported early in January 2013, the end of 2012 makes sense.

Yumilicious, 4710 Forest Drive Suite C: September 2012   1 comment

I believe I went into this Yumilicious on Forest Drive once last year. While in theory I liked the idea, in the event every single variety of yogurt was either low-fat or no-fat, so I ended up going across the street to Baskin Robbins.

The closing sign mentions that the Lexington store is still open. Or, if you would rather stay in Forest Acres, 32 Degrees is still in Trenholm Plaza.

And no, I'm not going to try to figure out how to put the dots over the 'm' :-)

Fruiti Cup, 631-B Harden Street: January 2012   3 comments

Posted at 11:43 pm in restaurants

Well, it looks like commenter Mike D was unfortunately correct when he predicted back in January that Fruiti Cup on Harden Street would not be re-opening despite the hopeful Closed Until February 15th sign you can see in the first set of pix.

As of early March, there is a Vacate or Show Cause writ on the door, and it looks like the place has been somewhat cleaned out. That's a shame. I recall that my niece and her daycare class all walked down to Fruiti Cup one summer day, and it was a big deal for them. (Though I myself would prefer a chocolate dip at Zesto..).

This location outlasted the Sparkleberry Square location by about four or five months.

Fruiti Cup, 10136 Two Notch Road: August 2011   7 comments

Posted at 11:06 pm in restaurants

Noticed Monday night as I was coming out of Carrabba's that Fruiti Cup frozen yogurt in Sparkleberry Square was gone. Well, actually that's not quite accurate because I never knew it was there first, and I couldn't completely tell if it were going out or coming in. A little googling established it though, and puts the date sometime after 3 August.

This spot was originally, or at least previously Ritz Camera, and this closing adds one more to Sparkleberry Square's list.

UPDATE 12 September 2011 -- Some daylight pix:

UPDATE 17 April 2012 -- Looks like it's to be Dickey's Barbecue Pit restaurant:

UPDATE 29 June 2012 -- As commenter Andrew mentions below, Dickey's is now open:
