    This creamy tasting, wonderful, little, chilly cloud of frozen yogurt, is definitively something that refreshes one on spring and summer days. Since Germany seems to skip spring and summer like forever, one needs to be a real fan of this delicious yet cold snack. Though I prefer snacks to be sweet and hot, I did enjoy their nonfat, frozen yoghurt a lot. Particulary the sweet and crunchy topping. While this American, healthy snack is very popular across the US, one can find those frozen yogurt cafes or shops rather seldomly in Germany as of now. The Yo2go in Ludwigsburg is a pretty small place yet lovely located on the city's Market Place.
