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. Give your someday-grandkids something to talk about with today's Groupon: for $4, you get $8 worth of frozen yogurt and desserts at Yogizmo. This Groupon is valid for both locations of Yogizmo. Prices slightly vary between the two locations—values listed below reflect prices at the Santa Cruz location.
Yogizmo is a frozen yogurt shop that uses fresh, organic ingredients and a unique yogurt machine nicknamed "The Gizmo" to create distinct dessert tastes. Imported from Canada, The Gizmo welds together Montreal-style hard tart yogurt or Marianne's homemade ice cream with fruit before heading home at day's end to its blender-children. Try the signature "Gizmo" yogurt concoction ($3.35 for small, $5.50 for large) or inspire bashful blushing in a spoon with the "topless" frozen yogurt ($2.55 for small). Frozen yogurts with one topping ($3.50 for small) and two-or-more-topping versions ($4 for small) are also available for those wishing to add to the yogurt's existing all-natural and artificial flavor-free coat. Yogizmo boasts an array of approximately 80 toppings—bury your treat under layers of Nite Owl cookie pieces, hand-shaved Belgian chocolate, flaked organic coconut, or other fruity favorites.
For straw fanatics not yearning for straight yogurt, Yogizmo also slings shakes ($4.85) and smoothies ($4.70). Celebrate a birthday or a neighbor finally moving away with a slice of ice cream cake, layered with two strata of Marianne's Ice Cream. While guests wait for brainfreezes to thaw out or settle in, they can play with the gadgets, whatchamacallits, and doesthatthinghaveanamethatsanactualwords lining the shop's walls.
