At Peachy Yogurt Bar, dairy mavens procure milk from St Louis-area farms, which they then transform into 10 flavors of low-fat, nonfat, and indulgent yogurt. Many flavors spotlight local ingredients such as Goshen Bona Fide espresso, which can be tasted in the cappuccino blend. The yogurt aficionados’ emphasis on local roots extends to the shop itself: patrons tread or leapfrog across floors made of Missouri white oak, dine on tables manufactured nearby, and enjoy local artwork and photography on the walls.

Founded in 1954 by James McLamore and David Edgerton, Burger King rapidly expanded from humble beginnings as a lone burger joint to more than 12,400 locations across 79 countries today, making it the second-largest fast-food-hamburger chain in the world. Its signature burger?the Whopper sandwich?consists of flame-broiled, quarter-pound beef patties crowned with a miniature fedora and a fully customizable array of toppings such as tomatoes, onions, and dill pickles. Focused on continual improvement, the chain recently reinvented the fries that accompany each value meal, outfitting the spud slices with a thicker cut of potato for a fluffier texture on the inside and crispier golden-brown exterior. A spread of decadent desserts including dutch apple pie and Hershey pie keeps sweet teeth from elongating into fangs, and made-to-order breakfast sandwiches clasp eggs, american cheese, and bacon, sausage, or ham between two halves of a flaky croissant to round out the speedy menu.
