40 Carrots is the best in my book mainly because (I think) they use full-fat yogurt or cream. I find Red Mango acceptable while Pinkberry is too icy and tart, and all the rest fall somewhere between the two. And now Berry Fro-yo is now in the number two spot. The owner, Avshar Kirksall, makes his own frozen yogurt available in original tart and vanilla with the regular toppings you find everywhere (berries, nuts, cereal, etc.) I picked the vanilla with chocolate chips. The chocolate chips were average, but the yogurt was exceptional. Creamy and smooth with slight vanilla flavor, it wasn't too icy or pucker-face tart. The creaminess was just a tad below 40 Carrots, enough to make me think this is from actual yogurt. And the amount you receive is just about the same as any of the other places, but at least with this one you have access to the owner. This will totally be on my radar during the warmer months when I'm stopping by Union Square.
Usually at 4th Avenue & 14th Street
