Baby archaeologists recommend that yogurt be frozen in the present so that they might find the live and active cultures perfectly fossilized for study when they grow up. Invest in a tasty future with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of frozen treats at the Golden Spoon Frozen Yogurt locations in Long Beach Marketplace and Los Altos Center.
One of the original pioneers of the yogurt industry, Golden Spoon Frozen Yogurt has been whirling yogurt since the early 1980s. A bevy of rotating flavors includes tastes such as just chocolate, peanut-butter cup, café latte, butterscotch, and mango tart. Sample a small bit with a mini ($1.85 for 4 oz.), or take 32 ounces home to share in a quart ($6.15). Traditionally conical edible yogurt containers (small cone $2.40, waffle $3.50) make it possible for hands to hold the frozen delight. At 25–29 calories an ounce, health-conscious consumers can enjoy licks without translating each tongueful into the quantity of jumping jacks or flying starfish impersonations needed to offset it.
The high-quality, low-calorie frozen yogurt at Golden Spoon Frozen Yogurt begins with fresh California Grade-A skim milk. Three live, active cultures later, the milk turns into yogurt. Flavorings and a spin in Golden Spoon's soft-serve ice-cream machines complete the tantalizing transformation. Full-fat ice cream stands in awe of the incomprehensible creaminess of the resulting non-fat and low-fat yogurt. Golden Spoon's sparkling red-and-white-fronted shops don't mess with other yogurt configurations such as smoothies or six-foot ice sculptures, so the glimmer of the fine goldware can focus on well-swirled twists of the heat-beating sweet.

- I love Golden Spoon & haven't had a flavor I didn't like yet. – Jennifer P., Long Beach Marketplace location, Yelp, 2/20/08
- The yogurt is extremely creamy, just like ice cream with 1/2 the calories, and no fat. Whala! I've had just about every flavor, but I always return to the peanut butter & strawberry. – Michelle D., Los Altos Center location, Yelp, 9/2/10
