There are no flavor combinations that are off limits at Chill Yogurt Cafe, which fosters flavor experimentation with 79 varieties of frozen yogurt, custard, and sorbet. Customers can also innovate by choosing a subset of more than 80 toppings. One might start by selecting swirls of Florida orange sorbet, Italian espresso, and cupcake batter. Each flavor contains only 20–35 calories per ounce, with most options containing no fat or added sugar. At the toppings bar, visitors customize each creation with pieces of fresh fruit, flakes of cereal, bits of candy, and drizzlings of sauce. The flavors change with the season and the availability of Oreos after milk surpluses.
