"What could be more Frisky than a froyo?”

“It's so hard to tell, as each of our flavours are awesome depending on the mood you're in. Natural is always great though as you can add lots of different toppings to suit your taste. We’ve also just launched our new seasonal flavour, white peach, which is proving popular so far.” When the Frisky team were asked what their most recommended flavour of froyo was!

Frisky is Scotland’s first original frozen yogurt brand, brought to us in 2012, in the city of Edinburgh. This creamy fat-free, flawless pro-biotic delight has made a huge entrance to the taste bud world of flavours and nutritious dessert eating and with less than 100 calories in their small cup.

From a choice of being a little naughty to being a healthy hype, this brand has made desserts and daily boosts leaving you feeling great and not guilty to those health and diet plans! You’re the froyo boss! From plain froyo, to chocolate, mango and more adding toppings such as oreos, M&Ms, fruit, shortbread and more…...

Recently Fristy’s has brought in the fantastic Bubble Tea. Bubble Tea can be a fruity or milky tea based drink with natural tapioca pearls or jelly in the bottom, you can have it hot or iced, offering an abundance of flavours for you to choose from.

This is the ultimate hang out for those busy workers and students who want to get a boost of positive energy including a unique atmosphere.

I have managed to grab the team of Frisky to ask a few tasty questions about this magical flavour and guilty free treat everyone’s talking about!

Thanks so much for taking the time. Its great being able to get the juice or shall is say “Froyo” of what’s behind this treat! Can you tell us a little more about where the name “Frisky” came from; has it any special meaning behind it?

“As with most names, it started with a big brainstorming session! Our founders Simon and Matt wanted to have a name related to Fresh or Fresca and, after much deliberating and playing around with different words, they came up with the name Frisky. What could be more Frisky than a froyo?” Ahhh very nice! It’s a playful title, which is always a great conversation starter when asking someone if they want one! Have you anything exciting happening in the books with Frisky this year?

“We’re constantly planning cool new things behind the scenes and making plans for the future. It’s exciting how much Frisky has evolved since we launched back in 2012, and we can’t wait to do even more this year. Expect lots of fun events, new flavours and other cool stuff to come this year!” Fantastic! Our eyes will be watching your social media for updates! Exciting!! Do you think you will look to branch out towards the rest of Scotland or London? “At the moment, you can find Frisky at Forrest Road and Lothian Road in Edinburgh. We would love to expand Frisky across the UK and maybe even further afield one day – watch this space! “

I can imagine Londoners would love this fantastic health boost in their busy life. Which brings us to this question; we love how you’re open till 11! Why so late? It works perfectly for us who work late! “We’re open late for just that reason - people work and study late and we think it’s important that they have somewhere like Frisky to hang out. There aren’t many places you can go in the evenings to grab dessert, smoothies or other tasty treats, so we stay open later to make sure no one misses out on the Frisky fun!” So very true! Mainly in Edinburgh its fast food or pints! Who designed the amazing artwork in your shops? “The wonderful Designers on the Run, who are also based in Edinburgh, designed our branding and artwork in our shops. We wanted something bright, fun and vibrant to reflect our Frisky values so we incorporated Japanese Kawaii style graphics along with our signature bright pink and white colour scheme. They did a fantastic job and everyone seems to love the décor in our shops!” I was going to mention the Japanese touch and colours fit perfectly, not too loud and very inviting! Exactly what Frisky is? What made you want to bring froyo to Scotland? “It’s very simple, really: we loved froyo and wanted to share it with the people of Edinburgh. We're so glad we did! “

Well Edinburgh definably thanks you! Have you got any fun loyalty cards or any student discounts or any special offers for the fans to look out for? “We always have loyalty cards available in both shops; just collect stamps each time you visit for a free treat once you fill up your card. Be sure to check out our Facebook and Twitter for our entire special offers and seasonal deals too!”

Excellent we do love our little deals and loyalty cards! You have supported events with Frisky; have you anything fun coming up that our fans would enjoy? “We have a few things coming up this year, which we are busy planning at the moment. One thing we're really looking forward to is our 4th birthday in May and we will definitely be organising something special for this!” 4 years that’s amazing, I can imagine big things will be in store! Last but not least, what do you suggest to get for your fans next visit? “Mango froyo, with white chocolate chips and raspberry sauce! “

Fro - tactic! This is a MUST try! There you have it Frisky Fro Fans! Be sure to pop in to either the one on Forrest Road or Lothian Road. You will be mind-blown and not only that, be prepared to get there and think… “I want…. EVERYTHING.” Check out the pages here for updates, events and even a little Hello to the hard working and sweet team! It’s a hard life living across from this tasty time out!
