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 snacks, soups, and frozen treats at Rockit Swirl and Eggettes, both housed in the same location on Diamond Street.
Rockit Swirl provides dessert ingénues with the creamy supplies to create goody-packed treats, while neighboring Eggettes specializes in a waffle-like street snack that originated in Hong Kong. Design a frosty-spired empire with yogurt in flavors such as yellow-cake batter, Ghirardelli chocolate, pomegranate, and mango (41 cents/oz., including yogurt plus toppings). Brains in search of a health-conscious freeze can opt for low-fat or nonfat varieties. A topping station packed with fresh fruits, candies, and nuts provides ample accessory options.
Sample Eggettes' namesake Hong Kong–style waffles, whose crispy texture houses a sweet custard flavor ($2.75–$3.25). Frozen coffee and exotic fruit smoothies are also available to offer brains a frozen buzz ($3–$4), and tofu-sion smoothies wrap muscles in fruit-infused protein ($3.75).
Rockit Swirl’s self-serve fro-yo emporium pumps out creamy yogurt in a variety of flavors, fully customized with edible embellishments from the toppings bar. The lineup of cool treats includes nonfat Oreos, mango gelato, and low-fat Ghirardelli chocolate, and the sprawling toppings bar features a medley of fresh fruit, nuts, and candies with which to decorate fro-yo cups or compose blueberry mosaics.
