100% fruit, frozen treat!

I just bought this thing. You put frozen fruit in the top, and what it spits out is supposed to be similar to the texture of soft serve ice cream. But it is 100% fruit- no yogurt, or anything like that. I'm so excited to try it tonight!! I have strawberries, a banana, kiwi, and pineapple in the freezer right now. Yum!! I'll let you know if it works as well as I'm hoping lol

Hmmm...I'm going to be in the Twin Cities (passing through), not that I want to stop in the Cities, but I could stop at the "Big Box" store mall that is between the Cities and St. Cloud. I'll have my mom and her dog with me, so I would have to "dash in, dash out." Do you know if there is a Coborns there? My parents have an ice cream maker, but this would be great for them--get my dad off ice cream!

I have no idea- I would probably look online before I made a special trip anywhere. I'll post my review later, but looking for online reviews couldn't hurt either. I had never even heard of coborns before I came to St. Cloud lol

Where in St. Cloud is it? I have to pass through on my way to Motley and then up North.

Huh, wish I had some nuts to throw in... I am planning to add honey.

The coborns I got it at was in Sauk rapids. It's just a little ways from the Walmart in Sartell. But there are coborns all over the place around here. I have no clue if they all have these. I got it in the produce dept. Just so you know it was $50
