Though more than 20 years separate childhood pals Richard Bowen and Branden Powers from the 1980s, they return to the beloved decade of their youth every day at I Love Yogurt. There, old-school sweets, such as Pop Rocks and jujubes compose a retro candy wall, while throwback soft drinks such as TaB and Squirt fill the soda fountain. The duo further writes its love letter to the 80s by piling 64 classic arcade games into the shop, from Frogger and Pac-Man to Asteroids and the infamous Duck Hunt sequel, Duck Stakeout.
The themed décor and treats, however, are bells and whistles surrounding the business' main focus: frozen yogurt. Staffers craft 12 rotating flavors of dairy-free, low-carb, and no-sugar added yogurt, including cake batter and watermelon sorbet. More than 50 ingredients—including organic fruit and real whipped cream—top off those treats, while classics from the cereal bar such as Franken Berry and KIX further satisfy munchies.
Cherry On Top spoons out healthy, delectable frozen yogurt from a Kosher-certified dairy, encouraging embittered sweet teeth with eclectic toppings and plenty of low-fat and nonfat flavor options ($0.39 per ounce). Festive tastes of eggnog, caramel cream, cheesecake, and pumpkin pie cloak tongues with layer after layer of desserty protection. The s'mores flavor inspires fro-yogurtvores to build in-store fires for roasting their own chilly treats, and fruit fans can test their cheek stretchiness by filling their mouths with lychee tart, watermelon sorbet, and blueberry pomegranate. A culinary tapestry of toppings flavorfully peppers each cold confection, satisfying customers with candied walnuts, chopped peanuts, fruity pebbles, cinnamon toast crunch, and more.
