NuYo offers self-serve topping and yogurt stations, allowing patrons to remain at the dessert-designing wheel while keeping the planet in mind with eco-friendly practices. The sacchariferous storefront offers 10 to 16 rotating flavors of frozen yogurt, as well as flavors of the month and nonfat, non-dairy, and no-sugar options. A cup of frozen yogurt or shaved ice can be ambrosially adorned with more than 50 topping options. Opt for the pomegranate seeds, blackberries, and mandarins to lightly sweeten a cold cup, or the brownies, Andes mints, and Reese's Pieces to satisfy a chocolate craving. All frozen treats and toppings are $0.39 per ounce. The team at NuYo Frozen Yogurt also promotes environmentally conscious practices at the stores with recyclable containers, compostable spoons, and by donating shaved ice to replenish melting glaciers.

Frozen yogurt not only tastes good; it's also good for you. Each of Fiji Yogurt's 100 flavors can be consumed guilt free, even if they're not one of the sugar-free, fat-free, dairy-free varieties. Besides classics such as pistachio, vanilla, and chocolate, far-out flavors are inspired by dessert with varieties such as blueberry cheesecake and white chocolate mousse. Once patrons fill their cups at the red yogurt station, they move to the green countertop to choose toppings. Peaks of yogurt can be crowned with candy, cookies, nuts, and fruit, as well as chunks of cookie dough and cheesecake. Customers enjoy their cups while perched on chairs that match the counter or the candy-apple-red leather sofas that match the maraschino cherry bush growing out front.

A science lab calls to mind test tubes, bubbling flasks of chemicals, maniacally laughing men in white coats—but rarely ice cream. But that's exactly where Curt Jones, chairman and founder of Dippin' Dots, came upon the inspiration for the tiny flash-frozen beads of ice cream. A microbiologist, Jones spearheaded the flash-freezing process of cryogenic encapsulation, a method capable of trapping flavor and freshness.

Beginning as a retail shop in Lexington, Kentucky, the ice cream quickly began to quell the tantrums of Fortune 500 CEOs all over the country. Having won numerous awards since he created a new way to enjoy an old treat, Jones stays true to Dippin' Dots’ roots, making the ice cream at the company headquarters in Paducah, Kentucky. New additions to the Dippin' Dots family include Dots ‘n Cream, a treat similar to traditional ice cream.
