So I just got back from 2 job interviews today and I had some time in Covent Garden between said sessions. Now I would usually go to Muffinski's for my froyo fix, but I thought I would give the place I had been shunning for ages a try and see whether it justified my reluctance. The place in question is SNOG.
For those unfamiliar, SNOG is the most successful brand on frozen yogurt chains in the UK with 5 permanent 'Snog Shops' set in the London area and an outlet in Dubai of all places! So the reason why I have been quite scathing of this place is due to its ingredient it lauds as healthy - agave nectar. Agave nectar is a plant-derived ingredient used as an alternative to sugar sorta like honey. However, it may have a low-glycemic index but its fructose content is astronomical meaning that your liver can't process most of the calories from it and converts it to fat plus failing to satiate your appetite. When I discovered this, I avoided these like the plague. However, I thought I couldn't keep ignoring this place and would add these to my froyo reviews.
