Fancy a snog (without guilt)?

Caught you attention, didn’t I? Before you jump into any conclusion that I am so desperate to extend an indecent proposal to anyone just to get lucky (after all, I am not that bad, am I?), I would probably encourage you to read on. While a snog might have been a much coveted activity of our teenage years – and for some still is – there is no reason why we can’t appreciate a snog every now and then. Only the one I am talking about is a bit different. It comes in the form of frozen yoghurt with a choice of delicious toppings.

My first snog: Green tea-flavored snog with cranberries and chocolate nibs (and a green tea-flavored snog with cranberries and blueberries at the back)

Instead of sugar and other artificial sweeteners, the yoghurt is sweetened with agave extracts – the Mexican plant that is used for mescal and tequila – and promises to be healthier than ice-cream.  This snog has low fat, low calories and a low glycaemic index. You can chose among the original flavor (with 72 calories per 100 g) or get adventurous with the green tea or chocolate flavor (with 79 calories). You can then add one or more toppings ranging from dried fruit – strawberries, cranberries, raspberries, blueberries, mangoes, bananas, kiwis and other fruit – or indulge in guilty pleasures like chocolate brownies, oreo cookies, chocolate nibs and hot espresso shots. However, note that agave syrup has a high percentage of fructose and a low percentage in glucose.  Thus, after you get over you sweet snog, you may crave some more.

To experience this type of snog, you will need to visit one of the immaculate-white and bright-pink little shops in South Kensington or Soho. The Soho shop we visited has a few tables where you can sit and enjoy your snog in the company of fellow snoggers (although we were not sure if sharing is encouraged). But the most striking feature was the arrangement of numerous, colour changing light bulbs at the ceiling.

It costs £4.20 for a classic flavor snog with two toppings, so we believe that there can be lots of opportunity for more snogging in the future. Fancy a snog, then?

P.S.: You can find Snog at 32 Thurloe Street, London SW7 2HQ (Google Map,Streetview) and 9 Brewer Street, London, W1F 0RG (Google Map)
