Crack Batter

It's now our third month of business and things are steady but just barely.

I'm now at the point where I can guess the weight of most yogurts within 50 cents of the total price just by sight.

Our top five toppings are:

Diced strawberries, Crushed Reese's peanut butter cups, popping bobas, sour worms, and marshmallow sauce.

However, the one thing that will bring our store to a screeching halt should we run out ... is the Cake Batter yogurt.
I don't know what YoCream is secretly putting in it, but people will get NASTY when we're out.

On Sunday a mini storm rolled through and brought down a tree on the power lines in the back of the shopping complex. Everyone in the center was out of power for over 5 hours and we ended up throwing out some of our product due to spoilage concerns.

So in the 2 hours we were out of Cake Batter while waiting for the product to thaw after we removed it from the freezer... 

-we had a half dozen people walk out and say they were going to drive 20 miles to our competitor
-a dozen decided they just weren't going to get any yogurt
-one person threw their half-filled cup on the floor and just walked out
-one person swore at my employee and threatened to leave her friend at the store (since she was driving) if he still got a yogurt when she couldn't get any because we were out of her flavor.

And that is why I am officially renaming this flavor to "Crack Batter".


  1. That is nuts! Sorry about the cranky customers. Outside of running out of that flavor and the power outage, hope everything else is going well.

  2. Crack batter sounds accurate. That's pretty crazy. It's good you have a flavor everyone loves though. Hopefully that means return customers.

  3. Wow! I had no idea how difficult customers could be. (Hope you never run out again!)

  4. LOL to renaming it crack batter, but boo to the horrible customers. They can be so rude over the littlest things.

  5. Wow. I had no idea about the draw of cake batter. I'm not addictied to this. I'll take the Reece PB cup any day.

  6. I love going to yogurt shops and topping it up. I'm better at guessing my weight after eating it than the weight in the cup.

  7. Oh, my gosh. That sounds stressful! Though it also kind of makes me want to try some. It MUST be good if people are in such an uproar about it.
