It's National Yogurt day today (and you thought it was hangover-from-Super-Bowl Day, didn't you)!
Every time we think yogurt has jumped the shark, it makes a comeback. There are still a million frozen yogurt shops, but now the trend is toward fro-yo that actually tastes like yogurt -- tangy and not too sweet. Less like ice cream and more like what that stuff in a cup is actually supposed to taste like. Well, that and the whole Greek/Icelandic/Swiss yogurt thing.
There are two frozen yogurt chains that are celebrating the day with free yogurt, and we are so there:
YoBlendz is giving
away free small cups of frozen yogurt from 6 - 7 p.m., as well as
discounting all purchases by 20% all day. YoBlendz is a Florida-based
company with seven locations in south Florida, including Boca Raton,
Fort Lauderdale, Plantation, Sunrise, and Weston. For exact locations,
is offering a free 5 ounce cup of soft-serve frozen yogurt to anyone
from 4 - 7 p.m. today, as part of their blue spoon frenzy promotion.
The company features yogurt in exotic flavors, using all natural
ingredients like fresh mangoes, guava, green apples, and green tea.
There are Yogurtland locations in Coral Springs, Plantation, Hollywood, and Pembroke
Pines. For a complete list of addresses, click here.
