When patrons step up to the self-serve pumps at Berri Yummi, they fill their cups with the tongue-titillating frozen yogurt flavors that earned the title Best Desserts in Delaware Today’s 2011, 2012, and 2013 Best of Delaware. Though it changes daily, the selection often includes flavors such as peanut butter, white chocolate, and mango, many of which are certified kosher and all of which are high in protein, calcium, and live cultures. Diners are charged by weight, not by flavor, so they can mix as many varieties as they’d like before sprinkling them with any of the over 50 toppings. If the endless options overwhelm patrons, they can call their parents for advice in the VIP room or refer to a list of some of Berri Yummi’s tried-and-true favorite combinations.

For the last 40 years, each issue of Hudson Valley magazine has delved into the area’s newest restaurants, shops, entertainment, and travel destinations.
