The decades-long feud between frozen yogurt and ice cream ended recently, when the two joined forces to oust a third competitor, frosty cottage cheese, from the cold dessert ranks. Enjoy the spoils of frozen yogurt's victory with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of frozen yogurt and hot chocolate bar access from Forever Yogurt in Wicker Park.
Forever Yogurt lets customers create customized cups of low-calorie frozen yogurt for $0.45 per ounce. Warm up on chilly Chicago winters by sprinting to Forever Yogurt's self-serve yogurt pumps and cranking out one of 14 rotating flavors. Slurp a standard, such as vanilla, pistachio, and strawberry, or melt an unconventionally delicious selection, such as red velvet cake, Hawaiian pineapple, or smoked ham hock. After the painstaking decision of choosing a yogurt flavor has been made, adorn the treat with fruit, candy, coconut, or sprinkles from the toppings bar. Yogurts come in low-fat, no-fat, and no-sugar options, and dairy-free sorbet allows people with milk allergies to experience the universal joy of brain freeze. Forever Yogurt's décor resembles a futuristic, hot pink dessertopia, with sparse seating available for customers lacking enough willpower to take their fro-yo to go.
Yelpers give Forever Yogurt an average of 3.5 stars:

When Forever Yogurt claims that it has “literally trillions of possibilities” for combining frozen-yogurt flavors and toppings, it is literally not kidding. At each location, some 14 flavors and 40 toppings challenge self-serve artists to twirl, sprinkle, and festoon cups of fro-yo to their own taste buds' content. Frozen masterpieces can accommodate preferences for low-fat, nonfat, nondairy, and no-sugar-added diets, as well as daily food-pyramid requirements for fresh blueberries, kiwi, and caramel-turtle cups.
