With more than 20 frozen-yogurt flavors, upward of 50 toppings, and the freedom to combine them in any combination, the variety of treats that Bad Frog Frozen Yogurt's customers can devise is virtually infinite. Customers grab a cup and head to the treat dispensers for yogurt, all of which carry the live-culture seal. Though the flavors may change frequently, the shop always offers nonfat, low-fat, and no-sugar-added options to let health-minded customers indulge without guilt and to let frat boys save room on rowdy frozen-yogurt crawls. Once flavors are selected, visitors sidle up to the toppings bar to customize their treat with strawberries, Oreos, or morsels of mochi.

The Winans family has been making lives a little sweeter for more than a century. During the Great Depression, townspeople would flock to the family?s bakery in Piqua with their sugar rations. Owner Wayne Winans would take that sugar and turn it into freshly baked cookies?a small pick-me-up at a time when even small pick-me-ups were a luxury. Years later, Wayne?s sons, Max and Dick, carried the family torch into the 1960s, when the first Winans Fine Chocolates & Coffees was born.
Today, the Winans family continues to do what it does best at three Ohio locations. All of the business?s chocolates are handmade, with no preservatives or fillers, and never cryogenically frozen. The family?s emphasis on freshness carries over to their coffee, too, which has frequently been named the area's best by the readers of the Dayton Business Journal and the Dayton Daily News. The secret is in their roasting process?their small, 15-pound roaster requires them to roast the beans in small batches, which leads to a more consistent product. Once the beans are ready, coffee artisans carefully combine them with other roasts to create a vast assortment of flavors, which includes 11 house coffee blends, 12 flavored coffees, and even more seasonal selections.
