Frozen yogurt is both enjoyable and guilt-free, unlike cheating on a test and getting an A, or cheating on your cat with snuggles from the down comforter. Rejoice in honest fun with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $14 worth of frozen yogurt; Liège, Belgium waffles; and fresh young Thai coconuts at Pop Yogurt’s two locations in SoHo and on the Lower East Side.
Sweet seekers visiting Pop Yogurt can customize fro-yo creations with more than 30 toppings, from fresh fruit to Fruity Pebbles. Keep it simple with a small serving of plain fat-free yogurt ($3.50) or load frozen masterpieces with any variety of fixings ($7.75) that are artistically arranged to resemble edible self-portraits. Two-flavor yogurt swirls can be further enhanced with a trifecta of toppings ($6.75), such as warm Nutella, graham crackers, and fresh raspberries. Should frosty brains choose to unthaw, call upon bites of crisp Liège, Belgium waffles ($4 for plain; $6 with frozen yogurt; $7.25 with frozen yogurt and 3 toppings), or hydrate with fresh coconut water ($5.95) from young Thai coconuts—which contrary to popular belief is not the name of a new boy band. Owned and operated by chef Seth Levine, a former contestant on Fox’s Hell’s Kitchen, visitors can often meet the chef himself and engage him in elaborate foodie handshakes while visiting.
The brainchild of former Hell's Kitchen contestant Seth Levine, Pop Yogurt serves up decadent yet fat-free cups of soft and smooth frozen yogurt adorned with a unique assortment of toppings. Each cup contains live and active cultures, or probiotics, making it a health-conscious treat despite its potential burial under more than 30 fruits and candies such as red velvet cupcake crumbs, chocolate Pop Rocks, and warm nutella. Also the owner of Georgica, a popular restaurant in East Hampton, Chef Levine occasionally makes appearances at Pop Yogurt's SoHo location, entertaining patrons with stories from his stint on Hell's Kitchen and dispelling rumors that Gordon Ramsay is actually a scarecrow made entirely of copper pots.
