Last night, as the temperature dipped into the 90s and half of Cleveland Heights found themselves without electricity, there seemed only one way to cool off: ice cream. But normal ice cream has, like, tons of fat and stuff, which is not advisable when one plans to spend the rest of the weekend in a bikini.
But last night, a friend and I discovered the secret hang-out of calorie-obsessed teenagers everywhere: Chocolate Emporium
(14486 Cedar Road; (216) 382-0140), a small, tucked away, delicious-smelling store that specializes in sugar-free delicacies, including an eight calorie frozen yogurt, uncreatively known as “only 8 .” That’s right: frozen yogurt that contains only eight calories-per-ounce, which is fewer calories than a tomato. The totally healthy treat contains eight ingredients: water, fructose, kosher whey, whey protein concentrate, maltodextrin, natural flavorings, calcium, and active yogurt cultures. And their cocoa-flavored soft serve is simply amazing: light, airy, creamy, and sufficiently cocoa-y.
You totally can’t tell it’s so low in fattening stuff. Which is why we each got an extra-large serving. – Fat-free Correspondent Rebecca Meiser
