When you are in the mood for frozen yogurt, head to Grossmont Center and go straight to Tutti Frutti. The incredible variety of delicious flavors and toppings allows you to create a cool and creamy treat that is sure to satisfy your craving!
“Customers love coming here because we have something for everyone,” says Manager Ali Sadri. “We offer a rotating selection from Tutti Frutti’s 100-plus flavors. That includes tart and sweet choices, as well as sorbet and gelato flavors. We even have some no-sugar-added and nondairy soy-based options. Once you factor in all the toppings, the combinations are practically endless. Customers can get their favorite or try something different every time they come in.”
The bright, cheery shop and the friendly employees make any visit to Tutti Frutti enjoyable. After you walk in, you will be offered sample cups so you can try out flavors and decide which ones you want. You will especially appreciate the samples when you see how many flavors there are to choose from. Butterscotch Pudding, Pink Grapefruit, Carrot Cake, Brownie Batter, Red Bean Green Tea, and Banana Split are just a few of the many Tutti Frutti flavors you can try.
If you are in the mood for a fruity dessert, go for one of the sorbet options, such as Orange, Passion Fruit, Lychee, and Strawberry Apple. Sensitive to dairy products? You can still savor a cup of froyo at Tutti Frutti, thanks to unique soy flavors that range from Coconut to Peanut Butter Banana Sandwich. For anyone watching their diet, healthy frozen yogurt is even healthier with chocolate, vanilla, and other flavors that skip the added sugars.
Once you have filled up your cup or waffle bowl with your favorite yogurt flavors, you have another important decision to make. The bins brimming with toppings are sure to tempt you—the fun is in coming up with yummy combinations! Sprinkle on a rainbow of gummy worms, add some cookie dough bites and chocolate-covered pretzels, and top your yogurt with a dollop of whipped cream—you can please your sweet tooth however you want! Tutti Frutti also has an outstanding selection of fresh fruit toppings, including strawberries, kiwis, cherries, bananas, apples, and blueberries. Don’t forget to drizzle on a bit of caramel or hot fudge sauce!
In addition to the amazing array of flavors and toppings, Tutti Frutti has much to offer above other yogurt shops. For instance, there is the unusually broad selection of beverages available. It includes illy® coffee (both hot and iced), slushies, smoothies, iced milk tea, Thai tea, and green tea. (Insiders love ordering an affogato, which is any flavor of yogurt doused in a single or double shot of espresso!) There are also scrumptious seasonal yogurt flavors such as Pumpkin Spice Latte, Gingerbread, and Candy Cane Cookies ‘n’ Cream. Like many of the Center’s other shops and restaurants, Tutti Frutti offers terrific promotions, including daily deals tempting patrons with senior and student discounts and even a free light-up spoon with your qualifying purchase.
Even though Tutti Frutti is a self-serve yogurt shop, the employees are eager and ready to help customers. They also work hard to keep the shop sparkling clean and inviting for customers. It creates a welcoming, comfortable atmosphere for the froyo lover of any age.
You may not realize it, but even your choice of where to buy frozen yogurt matters. When you go to Tutti Frutti at Grossmont Center, you are doing your part to shop local. With a simple cup of yogurt, you are supporting a locally owned business that strives to provide the community with a high-quality product and optimal customer service. As with our other Shop Local tenants, Tutti Frutti cares about the La Mesa community. That includes actively participating in the Center’s special events, creating jobs for locals, and offering special deals tailored to the community, including discounts for members of the military. Buying local also ensures that these businesses continue to offer something special to La Mesa. They give our city, and the Center, a wonderfully distinctive character that draws people in.
