Orange Leaf, Andover

Orange Leaf is an Andover-based frozen yogurt franchise, a fairly new contender in the fro-yo competition pitted against berry lineTasti-D-Lite and Pinkberry.

The attendant stated that this is the first Orange Leaf in New England, where the next closest one is located in Staten Island. The franchise is well represented in the South and will be growing in the North Shore of Massachusetts, in Newburyport and Salem.

The interior and exterior of the establishment has a orange, green and white color scheme and store fixtures.

To compare with other yogurt shops, Orange Leaf has more ice cream like flavors. I also appreciate how the company indicates when a yogurt is gluten-free.

Our waitress at Andolini’s suggested Orange Leaf to us specifically for the Wedding Cake yogurt flavor.

The price is by weight for $.49/ounce and there are two options for cup sizes, Large and XL. In terms of calories, the yogurt ranges from 28-45 calories an ounce.

Orange Leaf has a great variety of self-serve toppings including Kiwi, Pear, Honey, Mango, Honey Dew, Jelly Bellies, Fruity Pebbles, Dark Chocolate, Sunflower Seed, Marshmallows, Butterfinger and Reeses Cups.

You can sample the whole gamut of 10 or more flavors in store and rotate.  Some of the fun flavors they carry are: birthday cake, blueberry, caramel chocolate, eggnog, gingerbread, grapefruit, lychee, mango, passionfruit, pomegranate, pumpkin pie, raspberry lemonade, red velvet, snickerdoodle, taro and white chocolate.

We tried the coffee and health flavors. We only filled half the smaller cup. The total cost was $3.61 and came with cute orange spoons. The coffee had a nice intensity of flavor and really went well with the caramel crunch of the toffee bar.
