Tasti D-Lite "frozen dessert" shop opening in DCUSA

The cornily-named New York frozen dessert chain Tasti D-Lite is opening in DCUSA in November, according to DCist. Their website says "Tasti D-Lite is a dairy-based soft serve frozen dessert. Not frozen yogurt, because it doesn’t contain fermented yogurt cultures. Not ice cream, because it contains less than 10% butter fat." Ok. They'll have about 100 flavors, which is crazy.

It's unclear where exactly Tasti D-Lite will be in DCUSA, but I'm guessing it will be one of the small spots under the stairs (where the shopping carts are now) or upstairs near Best Buy -- the old space plan below shows the locations, listed as Maggie Moo's and Quizno's. This was the original plan for tenants before the place was built, which is why there are differences.

Of course, the first thing that comes to mind is that Fro-Zen-Yo is across the street. I guess we can support both? I predict a rise in containers of frozen stuff in the trash cans around DCUSA and the Civic Plaza.
