Outside of swimming laps in chocolate syrup, smoothies at Smoothie King are the tastiest way to improve your health. Smoothie King smoothies combine fresh fruit, natural juices, and special nutritional enhancers into more than 90 flavors (you can customize, add, and subtract the extras), all of which focus on achieving one of seven nutritional goals. Try an antioxidant-rich Pomegranate Punch with pomegranate, bananas, blueberries, apple juice, soy protein, and Turbinado sweetener to stay healthy. Weight-conscious en-smuthiasts can trim down and float away with the Celestial Cherry High, packed with bananas, black cherry, papaya, Turbinado, and honey, and unpacked with fat. You can also customize any smoothie by adding enhancers or “make it skinny” by cutting out the honey and Turbinado.

She even crafts cupcakes—in flavors such as root beer float—that are designed to transport customers to their childhoods more effectively than a DeLorean outfitted with a rocket propeller.

Through this charity, she brings food to hungry people in the local community, including freshly baked muffins, juice, and whole foods such as fruit and vegetables.

Despite the shop’s short menu–just frozen yogurt and yogurt-based treats–no two trips to Yagööt are alike. Every few months, the shop shakes up its frozen-yogurt lineup, swapping in two new seasonal flavors to complement the Original and Strawberry yogurts available year-round. So, while one visit may have yielded a sweet cup of fresh raspberries and Strawberry fro-yo, the next could treat taste buds to an entirely different experience, perhaps caramel-drizzled Italian Cocoa or Oreos crumbled over Pomegranate yogurt.

If you peek into the kitchen of Jelli's Fudgery, you're likely to see a heaping tray of smashed Butterfinger bars or a vat filled with 8 pounds of peanut butter. These tasty ingredients are just a sampling of what goes into the fudge that the shop's owners make from scratch. In order to satisfy different customers' cravings, they make batches in a wide variety of flavors. While visiting the shop, patrons can also peruse locally made products such as candles and olive oils.
