At Yummy Yogurt, hot, hungry families can cool off by helping themselves to a self-serve yogurt counter equipped with eight frosty flavors and more than 50 toppings. Start with a frozen foundation such as the shop's signature mixed-berry yogurt and then build upward, topping it with chocolate chunks and one of six sweet syrups ($0.44/oz.). Or, top a peanut-butter swirl with a healthy dose of golden honey to create a salty-sweet taste that can be used to fend off attacks from friendly bears. Sitting amongst candy-colored walls and silver, streamlined fixtures, patrons can relax while enjoying their chilly concoctions in the shop's climate-controlled confines or take a seat under an umbrella on the outdoor patio, enjoying the company of a palm tree while mocking its inability to use a spoon.
In the morning, the café whips up various savory selections for bleary-eyed breakfasters. The green eggs and ham ($7.50) features two any-styled eggs and ham served open faced on toast with pesto and are best eaten while in a box with a fox. Wake up your sweet tooth with the powdered-sugared cinnamon french toast on swirl bread ($7); add bananas or berries for an additional $1.50. Compliment a.m. eats with a hot tea ($2), organic coffee ($2, large), or coffee and espresso-powered hammerhead (large, $3.50), among other sips.
Jerry Swain created Jer’s Chocolates, an all-natural-candy company that mixes premium peanut butter and cocoa into its toffee, chocolate squares, and chocolate-covered peanut-butter balls. He and his fellow candy makers put valencia peanuts, many of which come from U.S. farms, into candies, which are devoid of preservatives and hydrogenated oils. All their white, milk, and dark chocolates are certified by the World Cocoa Foundation, which encourages responsible cocoa farming and fudge-sauce wrestling matches. Snackers can enjoy their peanut brittle bites, gourmet peanut-butter bars with pretzels, caramel, or toffee, signature chocolate balls, and other sumptuous sweets.
