Moolala Frozen Yogurt keeps palates on their toes by cycling through 14 different yogurt flavors every day. One day, you might find creamy coconut and chocolatey fudge brownie; the next, you could land mouth-first in tangy mango or salty-sweet caramel pretzel. The bright and cheerful shop serves its non-fat, kosher-certified, and gluten-free yogurt with an array of toppings, from fresh fruit to crunchy candy to sweet sauces. There's also a coffee bar, where baristas roast coffee and blend nutritious smoothies with yogurt and fruit. French crepes and Hale and Hearty soups are also available. The innovative yogurt shop and its extensive selection of wholesome, tasty treats has been lauded in the pages of a variety of local press publications, including The Schreiber Times and Long Island Press, and the Merrick location has been named Best Yogurt on Long Island for 2012 and 2013 by Best of LI.
From foodies to celebrities to trend watchers, the buzz around Pinkberry has been sweeping the world. Excitement was high from the very beginning, when in 2005 Pinkberry opened its first store in West Hollywood, California. The demand for the swirls of yogurt was so great that Pinkberry was dubbed "the taste that launched 1,000 parking tickets" by the Los Angeles Times. Undeterred by parking regulations, people were drawn in by their cravings for the yogurt, the abundance of toppings, the bright and energetic store design, and the kind smiles of the staff. With more than 220 locations in 18 countries, Pinkberry is now one of the most-talked-about premium frozen yogurts in the world.
Starting with a base of nonfat, hormone-free milk and nonfat yogurt, Pinkberry's artisans incorporate live, active cultures into the mix to create a healthy, refreshing treat. The original yogurt is always available, but staffers also swirl seasonal flavors throughout the year, such as strawberry, cookies 'n' cream, and cherry. The selection of fresh fruit also rotates with the seasons and is cut daily in each store. Other toppings, such as honey-almond granola, dark-chocolate crisps, swirl pearls, and italian caramel, allow customers to create an inspired flavor combination every visit.
Go Greenly is a proud supporter of eco-friendly practices, which is why its seven locations provide cornstarch spoons to scoop frozen yogurt from a rotating menu of more than 80 flavors, many of which are made fresh several times a day. From green apple and island coconut to caramel Oreos and the shop?s famous taro, the sweet treats can be enhanced with such toppings as chocolate-covered pomegranates and fresh fruit. To take the icy edge off frozen treats, Go Greenly pours out steaming cups of roasted coffee from Toby?s Estate, a Brooklyn-based company and purveyor of fine beans.
Go Greenly?s earth-conscious ways are also echoed in each shop?s interior decor, from bright green walls illuminated by crystal chandeliers to natural wood tables that hold recycled napkins and biodegradable packaging.
One of Chef Ayhan's collection of Mediterranean eateries, Ayhan's Mediterranean Marketplace & Cafe treats visitors to a smorgasbord of gourmet deli sandwiches, wraps, pizzas, and pastries.

Bagel Club's expansive menu ranges beyond its titular baked good, encompassing specialties such as pretzels and raisin-studded challah bread. Chefs also pile smoked fish—including sturgeon and lox—atop bagels, crack three eggs for each of their omelets, and fill sandwiches with deli meat or seafood salads. They can also add flavor to bagels or depleted scratch 'n' sniff stickers with more than a dozen specialty spreads, including chocolate-chip, spinach-and-garlic, and blueberry varieties of cream cheese.
Snacks can be as guilty as you want them at YOLO Roslyn's Yogurt Lounge & Desserteria. Guests can choose between options such as the frosting-topped cupcakes to the probiotic-filled, kosher yogurt available in 12 daily flavors. Yogurt isn't their only frozen treat however, with other options including dairy-free sorbettos and creamy gelato that can be made with milk, soy, or fewer calories. Once guests have chosen a flavor, they can make their own custom treat with the 45 fruit and candy options at the toppings bar. For those not looking for a dessert, the shop also offers juice, protein shakes, and cups of gourmet coffee.
