Self-serve frozen-yogurt apparatuses, towering topping dispensers, and bins of specialty candy line SoYo So Yummy’s electric-purple walls. Machines dole out dollops of yogurt in an ever-metamorphosing selection of flavors, including tart, mango, and red velvet, and self-service toppings beg to decorate icy creations with fresh fruit and candy-based portraits of the cashier’s face. Bins of gummies, chocolates, and jawbreakers pour into customers' sacks before a weigh station dictates pricing of candy and yogurt purchases. Stools and countertops support bowls of holiday-themed yogurts infused with eggnog, Abe Lincoln's birthday cake, and other seasonal delights. Against a sonic backdrop of happy chatter and clicking spoons, colorful drawing boards and markers encourage guests to doodle and leave messages.
