Touting more than 80 flavours 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. Today it is one of the world's largest specialty frozen yogurt chains. 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, and chocolate peanut butter. Most flavors fall within the range of 30–40 calories per ounce, with dairy-free options and no-sugar-added concoctions also available.
A toppings bar allows eaters to further customize yogurt creations with a spoonful of fresh fruits, a sprinkling of nuts, or popping boba balls, mochi, and candies. The flavors contain ample amounts of probiotics, known for potential health benefits that may include strengthening immune systems and lowering cholesterol and blood pressure.
