Red Berry Frozen Yogurt and Smoothie Bar is open after dark and here to save you from all those late night cravings. Chocolate fro-yo and a Netflix original binge with my cat sounds good to me. With the choice of over 50 toppings,  it’s no wonder they are open late, we could be here all day! Keeping the calories low and the flavor high, this frozen Ewing Township jewel definitely is on the top of our  list. Maybe you’re feeling a little nostalgic and want to enjoy a creamy old school styled Root Beer Float from their smoothie bar or if the party is still going get one of their Tequila Sunrises (hold the tequila), this citrus boost will keep you going all night!
