Frozen yogurt is used to delight taste buds, unlike boiling yogurt, which is used to stop invaders from scaling gingerbread castles. Harness the benefits of this powerful treat with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of frozen yogurt at Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt in West Des Moines.
The helpful staff at Menchie’s grants visitors the sweet-tooth independence to assemble their own glacial delights, streamlining the complicated art of frozen-yogurt consumption into three simple steps: mix, weigh, and pay. Satiate health-conscious sugar fixes through self-serve frozen yogurt stations supplying any of the more than 100 rotating flavors into the cups of culinary creators. Tasty foundations such as new york cheesecake, Heath bar, and low-carb pumpkin can speed date with any combination of 70 rotating toppings such as old-fashioned granola and fat-free brownies. Options for kosher and gluten-free dining abound on Menchie’s menu, as do no-sugar added spins on boysenberry and french vanilla along with four dairy free sorbets. Crammed cups or freshly made waffle bowls are weighed ($0.44/oz.), scores are settled, and cheerful taste buds skip off to enjoy frosty spoonfuls.
Menchie's Frozen Yogurt
Though he couldn't have known it at the time, Adam Caldwell arranged what arguably could be considered one of the most successful first dates in modern history. He not only ended up marrying his date, Danna, but also had such a memorable time with her in the frozen-yogurt shop that the two of them were eventually inspired to start their own. They opened Menchie's Frozen Yogurt in California in 2007, and within just a few years, found themselves with a family of hundreds of thriving stores sprinkled all around the world and featured on Undercover Boss.
As the Menchie's brand grew, Adam and Danna kept a simple mission in mind: to make their customers smile. An adorable cast of animated characters is featured throughout the locally-owned and operated stores, including on the colorful spoons, and customers can have fun creating endless frozen-yogurt combinations or just grab a cup of freshly cut fruit for a quick snack. There are almost 100 rotating yogurt flavors, and of course, there are plenty of toppings as well, displayed in help-yourself bins filled with fresh fruit, nuts, cereal, and candy.
The yogurt is made from fresh milk from a California dairy, and it is free of the artificial growth hormone rSBT. All the yogurt is kosher with live and active cultures and probiotics, and certain flavors accommodate vegan and gluten-free diets.
