While the walls’ crimson mosaic tiles glitter in the sunlight that filters in through large windows, CherryBerry’s guests pump out rotating flavors of frozen yogurt and lounge on puffy, mod-style furniture. With each creamy bite, it becomes more evident that the yogurt was made from all-natural ingredients: the strawberry contains tiny chunks of fruit, and the chocolate’s rich flavor could never have come from a powdered mix.
With more than 50 fruit, nut, and candy options overflowing from its bins and canisters, the topping bar plays home to fresh berries and healthful granola as well as candy-coated chocolates and sprinkles. Like a tag-team dance-off at the U.N., the yogurt itself features four types of live and active cultures, all of which aid in digestion. Low-fat, fat-free, and gluten-free flavors abound, as do sorbet options with no dairy and Splenda-sweetened yogurts with no added sugar.
The dairy aficionados at Rusty's Frozen Custard create icy, slowly churned goodies crafted so thick that customers are even encouraged to turn their treats upside down to fully appreciate their density. Luscious custards coat tongues in classic flavors of vanilla or strawberry, and when dunked into fountain drinks, create bubbly floats. Sundaes and shakes, meanwhile, can be outfitted with more than 35 toppings, including Oreo pieces, Nerds, or M&M's. Rusty’s crew also excels at making specialty drinks, such as lattes and low-fat smoothies, which can be enjoyed while relaxing on outdoor seating.
Yogurt Bliss provides tart and sweet frozen treats that have been certified by the National Yogurt Association to contain live and active cultures. Choose from original tart or non-tart flavors ($0.38/ounce) such as new April varieties strawberry cheesecake and butterfinger, which join fruity brethren such as hawaiian pineapple tart tropical taro and decadent cousins tahitian vanilla and chocolate obsession. The extra health-conscious can opt for no-sugar-added flavors or ask that the shop’s floor temporarily become a treadmill. Tasty hailstorms rain down from the candy gods with a choice of more than 50 toppings. Get more swirls of dessert in Yogurt Bliss' milkshakes and smoothies, which are created by handing buckets of yogurt to 1950s-era sock-hop participants.
K.C. Lynn's is owned by Moore native Ken Spence, who fills cacao- and caffeine-fueled tummy tanks with handcrafted candies and fresh-roasted coffee drinks. Step up to the chocolate case to ogle hand-rolled truffles made with quality imported chocolate and available in flavors such as raspberry, turtle caramel, and peanut butter ($2). Or send a sweet tooth swooning by locking lips around white-chocolate pumpkin-pie bonbons ($1), hand-dipped chocolate strawberries ($1.50), or crunchy vanilla-macadamia-nut brittle ($1 per oz.). Those morally opposed to chewing can melt under the indulgent influence of a cup of hot cocoa ($2.75) or mellow over a smooth percolated potation such as a latte ($3.25) or white mocha ($3.50) prepared using small batches of freshly roasted coffee beans. Guests already overstimulated from debates about how the dinosaurs went extinct, or those who just don't like coffee, can opt to cool tempers with a refreshing iced tea ($1.50) or a fresh-fruit smoothie made with low-fat, probiotic-rich yogurt, strawberries, blueberries, and bananas ($3.75).
