Though fourth-generation dairy farmer Jim King and his wife, Angel, craft the artisanal cheeses at Blue Jacket Dairy, it’s fair to say that the creamery is a fifth-generation family business. The youngest members of the King clan are already hard at work sticking labels on finished wedges of cheddar, quark, and mozzarella. The King family uses small-scale equipment to produce both fresh and aged cheeses, including its signature Gretna Grilling—a semisoft, halloumi-style cheese made with pasteurized whole milk. In addition to chèvre, mozzarella, and feta cheeses, Blue Jacket’s team makes small batches of Fresh Cheddar Curds, which it prepares plain or flavored with dill, chipotle, garlic, or ranch.

Isaac Mizrahi's family ate a lot of frozen yogurt. During one of many trips to the fro-yo shop with his kids, Isaac decided to cut out the middle man and open his own store. He cut the ribbon on his first Groovy Spoon location in Tarzana, California, where swarms of yogurt enthusiasts crowded around self-serve stations built into modern avocado-green walls. The success of that shop, which has been featured on Khloé & Lamar, led to more locations in California and Ohio, each slinging a rotation of more than 20 yogurt flavors, including sugar-, gluten-, and dairy-free options. Cheesecake, Oreo cookie, and pomegranate varieties lay the groundwork for a bevy of healthy and decadent toppings, such as fruit and candy in the form of chunks, tidbits, and 20-sided dice.
