What is better than a burst of sunshine on a summer's day? How about a burst of refreshing kiwi-strawberry yogurt, topped with juicy strawberries, colorful kiwi bits and morsels of "boba"?? Picture a party of flavors and textures and sweetness all dancing on your tongue, and you have the ultimate sweet indulgence, Smithfield's new "Kiwi Burst". There is no better place to celebrate bursts of sunshine than at this immaculate and enticing new self-serve yogurt shop, found in the Village Plaza off Rte. 44, right next to Dominoes Pizza. This cheery, colorful shop is THE destination for anyone who has a sweet tooth, and a desire for LOTS of flavor without LOTS of calories.
Kiwi Burst is the lifelong dream of ice-cream lover Emmee Chen and her husband Xueli. Emmee worked through all her teenage years at an ice cream parlor and when she opened her own "parlor" with her husband, a dream was fulfilled - except it is even better because it is a healthier alternative - frozen yogurt! Kiwi Burst is a place where the yogurt is tart, sweet, creamy, addictive and filled with live, active cultures and probiotics which are great for digestion. What is not to love?
Bring all your friends in for one of the always rotating, self-serve yogurt flavors at Kiwi Burst. Some of the options include the "California Tart" (original yogurt) as well as chocolate, kiwi-strawberry, cookies & cream, cake batter & pomegranate-raspberry, to name a few . As a shout-out to New England, there will always be a coffee flavored option as well. One 4-ounce swirl of yogurt is only 90-130 calories and a mere .49 cents/ounce. You simply pay by the ounce - so treat yourself to a little, or a LOT.
You can also add one of their 24 toppings which are also rotated for variety. There are tasty bites of strawberries, blueberries, black berries, pineapple, mango, and of course, kiwi - all cut fresh daily. There are endless candies and chunks of oreos, wafer cones, chocolate chips, coconut flakes and "boba bursts" for an extra pop of flavor.
Although Kiwi Burst is self-serve, there is a team of friendly and helpful workers who will give you free samples, answer your questions and guide you through the process. While their job is to serve you, their first duty is to keep all surfaces spotless - no worries about those self-serve spills, there is always someone there to take care of them. Emmee would have it no other way.
For your next celebration, come in and grab one of Kiwi Burst's homemade frozen yogurt cakes or call with 24-hours notice and Emmee will custom make one for you.
