Yogoluv chills the taste buds of yogurt aficionados with milk-extracted frozen treats in an assortment of palate-pleasing persuasions. Loaded with a herd of essential nutrients, including protein, calcium, potassium, vitamin B12, and riboflavin, the frozen yogurt ($0.40 per oz.) also contains live and active cultures. All 16 flavors, including mango, red velvet cake, pomegranate raspberry tart, and pecan praline, are kosher and have a third of the calories of their respective ice-cream counterparts, inspiring barely contained envy at beachside dessert conventions. Patrons can serve themselves cups of the probiotic concoction and let it help boost their immune systems, prevent digestive-tract infections, overcome lactose intolerance, and defeat antibiotic-fueled self-doubt.
Grandma's Cookies’ bakers craft succulent cookies and cupcakes using time-tested recipes originated more than 30 years ago by grandmotherly founder Charlotte Thompson. Dough disks abound in traditional flavors such as chocolate chip, snickerdoodle, or oatmeal raisin or, depending on the season, sugar sprinkle or ginger spice ($0.60 each). Order a cookie a la mode to pair a lucky sugar circle with a scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream, or stock up with a dozen cookies ($6) before attempting for barter with fur traders. Grandma's shrink-rayed cakes come in a triad of mouthwatering, seasonally rotating flavors such as chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry ($0.95/each, $9.50/dozen). Glasses of freshly brewed iced tea and lemonade wash down sweet treats or fill the moat around a freshly constructed cupcake castle.
It’s the classic conundrum: an intense craving for cookies, but not enough time, motivation, or bribe money for the Keebler Elf syndicate to satisfy the yearning. Dough to Door has discovered a way to satiate this craving without forcing busy civilians to slave over an oven for hours or spend precious gas driving to the store; they whip up batches of custom cookies themselves and deliver them right to customers' doorsteps. Patrons choose from bases of five types of dough—including oatmeal, peanut butter, and chocolate—before opting to add mix-ins of dried fruit, crumbled candy bars, eight types of chips, and nuts. Ready-made cookies are also available to take away the pressures of decision-making.
Included on Bon Appétit’s 2010 list of the top 10 best donut shops in the United States, The Donut Stop has been serving up glazed, cake, and custard-filled rounds since 1953. A large red stop sign urges passersby to pop in at the white, standalone shop for a raspberry jelly donut, maple-iced long john, or a cinnamon glob, a massive ball of cinnamon-swirled dough dipped in glaze. For birthdays, The Donut Stop offers cake-sized donuts that can reflect your actual age or the age when you discovered that Santa Claus only eats oatmeal raisin cookies.
