If you thought Tacoma had no more room for another frozen yogurt option, there's a new way to get your fix. Gibson's Frozen Yogurt, with two locations in Stadium District and Westgate, is opening a mobile version of its shops, the Gibson's Frozen Yogurt Truck.

It will be the first self-serve frozen yogurt truck in Washington," said Judy Jones, business manager for Gibson's.  "We wanted a way to bring the fun to everyone, not just in a single neighborhood."

There will be three machines dispensing six different flavors, with toppings similar to the ones that are in the shops, including fruits, nuts, cereals, candies and more. It'll be pay by the ounce, and since it's self-serve, you can have as little or as much as you want.

Though it's still in the permitting process, look for Gibson's Frozen Yogurt Truck at the Tacoma Freedom Fair on the 4th of July and the Old Town Rhythm and Blues Festival the following weekend. After that, it will be found around town at various locations year-round. To track it down at any given time, check its Facebook and Twitter. It'll also be available for catering weddings and parties.

If you loved ice cream trucks as a kid - or, let's face it, still do run outside when you hear the music, this takes the experience to a whole new level of personalization and convenience.
