Tasti D-Lite, to me, has always seemed like some fanciful, fictitious hideaway which I generally placed in the same category as Neverland, Narnia, Toontown, and Fiji... Places I float off to in my mind during stressful times. Like last week when I took an earful after my puppy pooped in someone’s yard. Eeee!
Turns out Tasti D-Lite is as real as this Gulf Coast heat. You already know the name from character obsessions on NYC-centric shows like Seinfeld and Sex & the City, and now Space City has our very own! A bubbly, colorful little shop at the corner of Post Oak and San Felipe.
Tasti D-Lite serves up close to a jabillion flavors of low-calorie frozen yogurt each day. They feature vanilla, chocolate, and four others as daily standards, but can whip up from scratch any flavor from the list of 100+ as soon as you say the word. Today’s treats included Rocky Road, Tapioca Pudding, and Chocolate Raspberry Truffle, while other days might include things like Coffee Cake, Pistachio, Brownie Batter, and German Chocolate Cake.
On top of the standard cups-n-cones, Tasti D-Lite also makes gorgeous frozen yogurt cakes in house and will start its breakfast fare (parfaits, muffins, and the like) next week. Considering I nearly fainted into a power nap walking between my backdoor and car yesterday, it’s a safe bet that I’ll throw some bidness their way. Look for the Highland Village location to open on August 15.
