Whereas yogurt is a byproduct of milk, which is milked from cows, sprinkles are a byproduct of dreams, which are milked from fairies. Taste farm-fresh treats with today’s Groupon: for $5, you two 12-ounce cups of frozen yogurt at Menchies Frozen Yogurt on Falls of Neuse Road (a $10.08 value).

Couples can cool off during hot dates by filling 12-ounce paper cups with velvety plumes of yogurt infused with cappuccino, georgia-peach, or glazed-donut flavors. The shop’s low-carb swirls present a delicious alternative to the sugary status quo with flavors such as cookies 'n' cream and banana, and palates can chart spoon-bound passages to tropical paradise on dairy-free waves of kiwi and strawberry sorbet.

Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt
Every Menchie's location around the world looks much the same: pink, yellow, and lime-green decor framing the eponymous mascot, a smiley twist of yogurt with a cone for a body. It's an identical template that allows for nearly infinite variations at each outpost's row of 14 or 16 rotating yogurt pumps, where guests can self-serve swirls of flavors such as pistachio, peanut butter cup, cake batter, and fruity raspberry pomegranate tart. Then, they can ladle scoops of nearly 60 toppings—including sprinkles, cookies 'n' cream, hot fudge, and locally grown fruits—onto their creations. Nonfat and no-sugar-added varieties join gluten- and lactose-free options for those who have food sensitivities or just hate the taste of gluten.
