Frozen yogurt is good enough, but it’s even better when many of the options are fat free and pair with more than 45 delicious toppings. That’s the case at Daddy Yo's, where customers fill their own cups full of self-serve fro-yo in flavors such as red velvet cake, Hershey’s Kisses chocolate, and root-beer float. Then it’s on to the toppings bar, where delicious candies, fruits, and treats, such as strawberries, Reese’s crumbles, and graham crackers, customize each creation.

Cherry's Ice Cream combines the old-fashioned idea of an ice-cream parlor with the modern technology of high-definition television and wireless Internet. Visitors can recline on couches and chairs around a TV, enjoying scoops of housemade ice cream in the company of friends or in the cold glow of their computer screens. Ice-cream flavors range from traditional vanilla to clever in-house creations, such as Rolos caramel delight and Circus Fun: vanilla ice cream blended with animal crackers and circus peanuts. In addition to hard and soft-serve ice cream, Cherry's confectionists serve up two-scoop belgian-waffle sundaes, water ice, and milkshakes.

If you visit his shop on a Wildwood, New Jersey boardwalk, Tom B. Curyto, a proud torch bearer of Polish heritage, will generously give you a free sample of Polish Ice— but he will stubbornly shake his head if you ask him how he makes it. After all, it took him years to perfect the recipe¬. Holding degrees in aeronautical and astronautical engineering, Curyto approached his endeavor like a true scientist, spending hours and hours coming up with theories, hunching over vats of frozen concoctions in his kitchen, and tasting spoonful after spoonful until getting the signature custard-like texture just right.
Today, Tom's frozen treat has won over the palates of an abundance of media publications, and can be found in TLC Polish Water Ice shops throughout five states and two US-claimed moon craters. In cheerful storefronts and boardwalk stands, soft-serve machines freshly dole out the dairy-free, fat-free, and cholesterol-free concoction in fruity flavors such as mango, green apple, and lemon. Servers also blend Polish Water Ice with ice cream to create creamy freezes, while adding candy to the mix to whip up cups of chillers.
In 1966, The Yellow Door was a small jewelry shop in Brooklyn. Owners Sallee Bijou and Gladys Chabbot only had 600 square feet of space to work with, so they decided to focus on quality over quantity. Today, their business has expanded to include a store in New Jersey and an updated 6,000-square-foot store in Brooklyn, but the commitment to unique, quality jewelry hasn’t changed. Today, Bijou’s daughter, Luna Bijou Zemmol, oversees the selection of jewelry and watches from the likes of Judith Ripka, Philip Stein, Michael Kors, and Ralph Lauren, as well as gift items such as crystal salt-and-pepper shakers and stainless-steel kitchenware.
At Cinnabon, the aroma of scrumptious baked goods wafts through the air as chilled beverages help sate the snack appetites of weary mallwalkers. Munch on a variety of cinnamon-infused treats, such as the Cinnabon classic roll, temptingly filled with Cinnabon’s famous makara cinnamon ($3.49), or the caramel Pecanbon, topped with an edible medley of luscious caramel and tasty pecans ($3.79). An assortment of goodies can be toted home for hungry broods in one of the stores’ regular Cinnapacks ($11.99 for four, $16.99 for six), and a 15-pack Minibon box ($18.99) is perfect for a sparsely attended reunion of former Power Rangers. After snacking, revitalize taste buds with a cup of iced coffee ($2.49–$3.49) or the chocolate-augmented, frosty Mochalatta Chill ($3.49–$4.19), a more refreshing way to cool down than a game of patty-cake against a polar bear.
