Even though the New Tampa area has seen no fewer than three frozen yogurt shops open in the last year or so, within the next couple of months, yet another is expected to open on BBD. And, even though one ice cream shop has closed, two more are popping up to more than replace it and the closed store already is in the dessert business again, too. What the heck is going on here?
For starters, La’ Berry Frozen Yogurt Café, which has five locations in Georgia, will open in the Trout Creek Commons plaza anchored by Burger 21. Billed as “A trendy place to meet and mingle with friends,” it remains to be seen if La’ Berry will offer anything to differentiate itself from its competition.

A little to the south on BBD, the vacant, giant soft-serve cone in front of the Pizza Hut in the Publix-anchored New Tampa Center, will soon be home to the fifth Twistee Treat Real Ice Cream shop in Florida. If you like chocolate dip-top cones as much as I do, you might need to visit the newest Twistee Treat.

A little north of the Pasco County line on BBD, next to the Bonefish Grill in the Shoppes at New Tampa plaza, a sign announcing that a new Happy Cow Frozen Yogurt, Sorbet & Gelato is “coming soon” has been posted at the location for several months, but we still had no information at our press time as to how soon the shop will open.
Although it made my 2012 list of favorite ice cream and dessert shops in New Tampa and Wesley Chapel, the iCream store, located next to and owned by the same people who own the adjacent Baja Fresh Mexican Grill on BBD just north of S.R. 56, quietly closed several weeks ago and recently was replaced by a Cupcakes & More Brewhouse, which features delicious roasted coffee, coffee drinks, Boba teas and yummy pastries.
