On a nice sunny day there’s nothing better than a refreshing tasty treat to cool you down. But next time go to vanilla Jills and make your snack healthy one.
Our product is made with all natural Kiefer which is full of probiotics.
And it tastes even better.
I grew up thinking frozen yogurt was healthy, and I never even looked at the ingredients. And then we looked at the ingredients we were very surprised. We realized we did not want to live our lives feeding people that kind of food.
Tim and Megan Stevens own Vanilla Jills frozen yogurt- a one-of-a-kind Eugene-based frozen yogurt shop.
There are only a hand full of companies in this area or even the whole world that make a softserve handmade frozen yogurt. Vanilla Jills started as an idea, after an offhand comment started after dinner.
Wewer finishing up and Megan said hey do you guys want to go next-door and check out Vanilla Jills and have some frozen yogurt? Everyone said sure sounds great!
That was in 2009.
We spent nearly 6 months literally making and testing frozen yogurt each night Using Nancys yogurt. I am chief taste tester.
In March 2010 Vanilla Jills open it’s doors on Coburg Road. As new recipes developed and the word spread of this local handmade organic frozen yogurt business started blooming. You can find pints of vanilla Jills at local grocery stores and the couple has since opened a frozen yogurt food truck. Everything is made at their local store and as the two seek expansion they are running out of room. They have decided to open a new location at the Winterburg of Eugene.
We are going to move all of our production over to the Winterburg district and also had a small retail space over there so were really excited about that. The new shop opening up here will be called scoops and soups, serving up local sustainable Soups along with their frozen yogurt.
We will be able to serve basically breakfast lunch and dinner as well as dessert For an amazingly low rate using locally sourced products and ingredients.
At Vanilla Jills their success is in their ingredients.
A lot of people looking forward to that, I would like to nominate myself as a taste tester.
