Unlike sno-cones and ice cream, which grow on vines, frozen yogurt is created by a natural snow-based phenomenon called "froyo-synthesis," which converts carbon dioxide into pure deliciousness. Taste the snowlight's bounteous nectar with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of frozen yogurt at Fru-Lala in Dinkytown. This Groupon is good only for the frozen yogurt.
Fru-Lala celebrates the healthier side of dessert by arranging marriages between a selection of four frozen yogurts and a plethora of flavor-enhancing toppings. A small cup of the classic California tart flavor ($2.99) should be enough to convince your paranoid palate to lower its jawbridge and let in an invasion of French vanilla, espresso, and pomegranate flavors. From there, advance to more-adventurous flavor concoctions by nose-diving into a large cup of pomegranate yogurt ($5.49) garnished with a pleasant sprinkling of toppings ($0.35 each) such as kiwi, lychee, and grapefruit. Or go a little crazy by adorning a coneful of French vanilla with gummi bears, blueberries, and mochi and then smearing it over a tinfoil hat while making bird noises. Crumbling bits of graham cracker over an espresso scoop, on the other hoof, will bring back nostalgic memories of cooking coffee s'mores over your computer's heat vent during long cubicle campouts.
Created by two University of Minnesota grads, Fru-Lala displays its contemporary style with a modern décor of sleek tables and transparent chairs. And with a convenient storefront a block from the U of M campus, Fru-Lala gives students a healthy, lip-smacking breather between their Astro-Canine 102 and Remedial Ukrainian Racquetball History classes. Treat friends and family to a frozen treat that's good for them (unless they're trapped under an avalanche of it) with today's Groupon to Fru-Lala.
