Much like Ted Williams and Barbaro, yogurt is full of so much greatness that it must be frozen so it can be shared with future generations. With today's Groupon, enjoy yogurt that will be remembered for ages: for $4, you get $8 worth of self-serve frozen yogurt at YoLo. This Groupon is valid for redemption at YoLo's East Memphis or Collierville location.
YoLo—a truncated combination of the words yogurt and local —lives up to its abbreviated namesake by using toppings from local farmers and bakers on its self-serve frozen yogurt. Customers DIY their yogurt treat, choosing the type of yogurt, the toppings, and ultimately the cost of the treat, as YoLo charges $0.45 per ounce, which includes the weight of the cup, frozen yogurt, toppings, and ghosts of frozen yogurts past. The thick and creamy frozen yogurt is made from real dairy yogurt from Honey Hill Farms in Russellville, Arkansas, with all flavors kosher, gluten-free, and either low-fat or non-fat. Non-dairy mango sorbet is also available for vegans. With the bed of yogurt assembled, customers can hit the toppings bar to sprinkle culinary confetti atop their creation. YoLo offers tasty toppings from area vendors such as Makeda's and Dinstuhl's. Toppings—like fashion trends, TV schedules, and the color of the leaves on foliage monsters—change with the season.
- The yogurt will come from Honey Hill Farms in Russellville, Arkansas, and is made of real dairy yogurt with live cultures. All the flavors are kosher and gluten-free, and most of them are low-fat, if not fat-free. They also have a non-dairy mango sorbet with real mango puree for vegan fro-yo fans. – Hannah Sayle, Memphis Flyer
- When I was there yesterday afternoon, the tidy shop was bustling with families. I would have loved YoLo as a kid. If you’ve got kids, it’s a great place to take them to teach decision making skills. – Kerry, ILoveMemphis
