Nick has been attending a weekly workshop in Morristown in the evenings, which has given Madeline and I a standing date night and the opportunity to eat our way around the town and explore new restaurants. Last year, an old friend mentioned her favorite yogurt place was in Morristown, so Taro quickly made it on our list.
And man, am I ever sorry we waited as long as we did.
After having a kebab dinner a few doors down (review coming soon), Madeline and I walked over to Taro. It’s right on South Street, with convenient on-street parking and very easy to find. As soon as you walk in, you’re greeted with a bright, happy, neon vibe, which made up for the fact that we were about to have frozen yogurt on a cold 28-degree night.
Diehards, what can I say?
With only ten flavors and a much smaller toppings bar than their competitors, Taro really has to do something to stand apart from the others. And they have, starting with your wallet and their 0.45/ounce pricing, which is about a nickle an ounce cheaper than everyone else. While it doesn’t sound like much, it is.
When I go to froyo places, I tend to pick very specific flavors that taste well with mostly only-fruit toppings. Coconut yogurt is my go-to, but when Taro didn’t have it, I had to think a little outside the box.
Once I saw the Toasted Marshmallow flavor, all bets were off. To the point that I would urge anyone within reasonable driving distance to go just for that flavor alone.
It was seriously amazeballs.
I topped it off with coconut, chopped nuts, cinnamon crunch cereal, granola, boba, and sliced bananas. It took every ounce of willpower I had (and the fact that we had to go pick up Nick) not to turn around and go get more.
I swear I fell asleep dreaming of the Toasted Marshmallow frozen yogurt that night.
The retail establishment itself was spotless, including the toppings bar, and the staff was very friendly and outgoing. They offer a punch card to reward frequent visits (love that!) and also sell bubble tea, which we haven’t seen anywhere else yet. The picture above shows the sum total of the seating area, so expect it to busy or have a bit of a wait once the weather starts warming up.
We will definitely be back. Many times over.
If you happen to be at the Mayo Performing Arts Center for a show, Taro is located diagonally across the street from it, and well worth a stop in.

Hungry for more froyo reviews?
The kids love Let’s Yo! because they have iPads on the tables for them to use.
Strawberry Fields in Morristown is also in the same areas as Taro, but Taro is tops out of these two.
Red Mango is still our one-to-beat.
CUPS is good, if you can get past the loud club-like atmosphere.
We visit Yogurtland the most because it’s the closest to us.
