street stores to expanded self-serve dairy bars. Customers have their choice of regular (non-sour) chocolate and vanilla or a selection of sour flavors. As at Swirlberry down the street, the yogurt is sold by the ounce (49 cents, undercutting Swirlberry's 65cents) with a cornucopia of fruit and candy topping options.
Amer's is the fourth entrant to the frozen dairy biz on State's campus strip (Ben & Jerry's and Stucchi's are practically next door). The arrival of yogurtrush completely killed any plans by South University's Yogo Bliss owners Mack Kim and Joe Ahn to open a second shop on State. Kim says they had looked at the empty Ritz Camera and Shaman Drum spaces.
