Though any emotion can be read into Mona Lisa's mysterious smile, scientists have identified the glint in her eyes as simple lust for dairy products. Tantalize portraits with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of frozen treats at TCBY.
At TCBY, a.k.a. The Country's Best Yogurt, utensils tunnel into low-fat and fat-free frozen yogurt chock-full of beneficial bacterial cultures as well as into other frozen-yogurt-based treats such as smoothies, cakes, and chilled coffee drinks. Hand-scooped fro-yo arrives in large cups ($4.09), crunchy waffle cones ($3.39+), or upside-down umbrellas in varying flavors, including white-chocolate mousse, cotton candy, and pralines and cream. Toppings of strawberries and Oreo cookies tumble down snowy peaks of soft-serve buffered by a cup ($2.89+), and cappuccino chillers ($4.49 for a regular) blend coffee with creamy fro-yo.
Though many fro-yo shops have sprung up in recent years, TCBY is no newcomer to the scene. Since 1981, its shops have been scooping, swirling, and topping their lower-fat treat in crunchy candy and fruity sprinkles—but that doesn't mean they've been coasting. They're still innovating, whether it's tweaking standby flavors or developing their signature honey-vanilla Greek frozen yogurt that dishes out protein and fiber without any fat. Fro-yo artisans blend up Beriyo smoothies in flavors such as mangolada and purely peach or infuse Shivers with a choice of sweet topping options. To celebrate a birthday, you can opt for frozen yogurt cakes and pies. The treats are layered with frozen yogurt and rich toppings to forge flavors such as chocolate decadence and peanut-buttery fudge pie.
