I scream, you scream, "It’s Not Ice Cream?!"
CCU has unveiled a new sweet, healthier treat option for the 2017 school year. Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit Co. Is not ice cream or frozen yogurt, nor is it sherbet.
Chloe’s Soft Serve is kosher, pareve, prepared without meat, milk, or their derivatives, dairy free and gluten free.
This soft serve is only 25 calories per ounce and has only three simple ingredients; fruit, water and cane sugar. It costs 49 cents per ounce.
The inspiration behind Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit Co. came from the developer’s pregnancy.
Chole Epstein, the creator, desired a crave-cutting sweet treat that was guiltless to consume and would be a healthier option for her and her child.
Epstein was able to recreate a product that is an “all-natural alternative to both the artificial ingredients of frozen yogurt and the fat and dairy of ice cream," according to the company's website.
Chloe’s Soft Serve is located on the first floor of the Academic II building in the P.O.D. Express store.
The self-serve kiosk will swap flavors according to demand. Current flavor choices include: banana, strawberry, mango, pineapple and chocolate.
Consumers can top their soft-serve with fresh-cut pineapple, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, rainbow sprinkles, salted caramel sauce, chocolate sauce, shredded coconut, sliced almonds and graham cracker crumbs.
“[Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit Co.] is a great new addition to the many different food options we have here on campus,” said Greg, an employee at Chloe's Soft Serve. “In the future, we will be looking to add more flavors to the rotation, such as blueberry and kiwi.”
Some students at CCU are excited about this new kiosk.
A group of friends had great feedback about their experience at Chole’s Soft Serve. They thought it has good treat and unique in taste.
One consumer, Phillip, said it is a nice change.
"It owes a lot of its uniqueness to the fact that it’s like frozen yogurt, but not yogurt," said Phillip.
The group said that they are looking forward to the other exchangeable flavor possibilities and topping options.
