Touting more than 100 flavors of low-calorie, flavor-packed frozen yogurt, Tutti Frutti earned a feature on CNBC and has continued to expand since opening its first shop in 2007. Inside each store, self-service yogurt machines unleash velvety-soft yogurt into accommodating cups or empty purses. The constantly rotating menu may include flavors such as royal red velvet, refreshing melon, chocolate peanut butter, and multiple hot chocolate offerings. Most flavors fall within the range of 30–40 calories per ounce, are low-fat or fat-free, with dairy-free, soy, kosher, and no-sugar-added concoctions also available.

A toppings bar allows eaters to further customize yogurt creations with a spoonful of fresh fruits or a sprinkling of nuts. The flavors contain ample amounts of protein, calcium, and probiotics, known for potential health benefits that may include strengthening immune systems and lowering cholesterol and blood pressure. Tutti Frutti also offers fresh smoothies, Belgian waffles with an array of toppings, hot tea, coffee, and lattes.

It’s the classic conundrum: an intense craving for cookies, but not enough time, motivation, or bribe money for the Keebler Elf syndicate to satisfy the yearning. Dough to Door has discovered a way to satiate this craving without forcing busy civilians to slave over an oven for hours or spend precious gas driving to the store; they whip up batches of custom cookies themselves and deliver them right to customers' doorsteps. Patrons choose from bases of five types of dough—including oatmeal, peanut butter, and chocolate—before opting to add mix-ins of dried fruit, crumbled candy bars, eight types of chips, and nuts. Ready-made cookies are also available to take away the pressures of decision-making.

The Fountain On Locust has earned accolades such as St. Louis Magazine's award for Best Restaurant On a Budget in 2012 and an honorable mention as one of Sauce Magazine's favorite restaurants to impress out-of-towners. Described as "luscious" by Sauce Magazine reviewers, the café's ice-cream creations skew toward adults. They may be topped with hand-crafted sauces or blended into champagne floats and eclectic ice-cream martinis. On the menu, these sweets converge with a panoply of vintage cocktails and playful café dishes that include hot roast-beef melts and a turkey BLT "so good you might cry."

The retro cuisine meshes perfectly with the vintage-inspired decor, highlighted by walls of hand-painted midnight-blue murals. Black and white tile floors spread out from a wooden bar lit with art deco-style hanging lamps, much like the kind F. Scott Fitzgerald described in his unpublished novella about Gatsby's electrician. And yet the restaurant's eclectic design isn't limited to the dining space—The Fountain won Cintas' America's Best Restroom Award in 2010.

Armed with just a single, generations-old cookie recipe, Great American Cookies opened its first store in 1977, and the rest is history. Today, the franchise boasts locations in malls across the country and nabbed a coveted spot on Entrepreneur magazine’s 2012 Top 500 Franchises in the baked-goods category. As the shop’s reputation grew, so did its menu as chefs churned out a mouthwatering roster of gourmet-cookie recipes, each created and carefully tested in Atlanta. The tempting options now include snickerdoodle, peanut butter with M&Ms, and chewy pecan supreme, as well as freshly baked fudge and cheesecake brownies, and cookie sandwiches stuffed with frosting. The real show-stoppers, however, are the giant chocolate-chip cookie cakes, which can be customized with sweet, celebratory messages or shopping lists penned in colorful icing.
