Yo Mama! coming soon to Tosa

Back in April, we told you that Yo Mama! frozen yogurt shop was coming soon to the former Drew's Variety space, 7503 Harwood Ave., in Wauwatosa Village.

Much of the renovation work appears complete and a sign in the window says the new business will open in early June.

Becky and Scott Berger said their Yo Mama Frozen Yogurt will be based on a self-serve concept. Customers can fill up with 10 flavors at five soft-serve stations and then add about 30 toppings, including fruit, nuts, candies and syrups.

But be careful, folks, you pay by weight.

Yo Mama is located across the street from a Baskin-Robbins 31 Flavors ice cream shop. Here comes the dueling desserts!

alright, I take back everything I said. I've been there twice now and have nothing but good to report--the prices are reasonable (.45 cents an oz) and the toppings are tasty. The yogurt is as tart and creamy as anything I've ever had.

If I can cover it in froyo, I will cheerfully eat crow and appologize for ever doubting YoMama.

As excited as I am for a real frozen yogurt shop in the area, I don't think the pay-by-weight thing is going to work really well for them. I've tried both the pay-by-weight and pay-by-size places and I vastly prefer to just pay by the size (s/m/l with x# of toppings, more for extra toppings).

I can only imagine small children making extra-large treats and the angry parents who will have to pay $12-20 for their mistake. I know the pay-by-weight make it yourself combo means they have to have less staff on hand but I'm not sure it will work overly well here in the Midwest where large portions are king and frugality is a way of life.
