Colliders at Rod’s Diner

I’ve been putting a good amount of effort into eating well during my pregnancy (eating at least a few servings of veggies and fruits daily, making sure I get my whole grains and multiple sources of calcium daily, you know the drill.) We actually joke that baby is made of strawberries because I have eaten strawberries nearly daily for the last few months. I’ve become super obsessed with fruit lately and make and eat a giant bowl of mixed fruit about 6 out of 7 days per week. The last couple of weeks I’ve especially been digging sweet cherries, watermelon, and nectarines.

But, I am only human, and sometimes mama just wants some cheese fries!

That’s where Mr. Spots comes in. Those cheesesteaks are good, but my gawd those cheese fries. I wish I could say I feel bad about eating these fried carbs drowning in utterly unnatural neon cheese sauce but I totally don’t. Sorry I’m not sorry.

After our pregnancy craving-induced visit to Mr. Spots a few weeks ago, we wandered a couple doors down to a place I somehow never managed to visit during my years as an undergrad at U-M (or anytime in the years following!) – Rod’s Diner.

Rod’s diner mainly serves up two things: Korean food and frozen yogurt. Having already  had dinner, the Korean food was saved for another day, but frozen yogurt was ordered in the form of Rod’s special creation: Colliders.

What are Colliders you ask? Colliders are vanilla, chocolate, or twist fro-yo both blended and topped with your choice of five toppings. Unlike many of the other fro-yo shops that have become popular over the past few years with toppings served buffet-style and paid for by the ounce, at Rod’s you choose your toppings and let them do the work – and the end product will be something beautiful, like this.

Pro tip: Get the rainbow sprinkles.

Rod’s offers a crazy variety of toppings from which one may choose, including a slew of different breakfast cereals, candies, nuts, pretzels, green tea, fruits, sauces, and more.

My first Rod’s Collider was topped with rainbow sprinkles, Reese’s Pieces, fudge brownies, peanut butter crunch cereal, and peanut butter cups. Wowza! What a treat.

Any one ever tried anything besides the Colliders at Rod’s?
