This time of year, unhealthy temptations abound: chocolate-covered reindeer, log-jam rolls, and gingerbread cars. Curb your treat-sneaking guilt without neglecting your sweet tooth with today's Groupon to Yogurberry. Located in the sleek, secretly-from-the-future Terminus building, this Buckhead shop serves up low-cal, non-fat frozen yogurt and smoothies that make celebrities and pastry chefs abandon their highly publicized affairs with ice cream in favor of a nurturing treat that reforms their image in the media. Stay on track with your New Year's resolution to eat better/learn invisibility/graduate college with this energy-giving snack.
Let the sweet and tart softness blanket your tongue with the excitement of a first snowfall. Try the original, plain tart yogurt ($3.50 for medium) with a sprinkle of blackberries and almonds ($0.95 per topping), or try a flavored yogurt like strawberry, peach, or green tea ($4 for medium). Slurp one of Yogurberry's filling and invigorating smoothie blends of fro-yo and freshly cut fruit ($4.50 for 16 oz.) and dare the thick deliciousness to ever end. As you enjoy your sweet treats, take advantage of free WiFi, free validated parking, and the free shelter of bright pink walls and sleek furniture to remind you that you are enjoying the dessert of the future.
Frozen yogurt is a healthy alternative to ice cream and frozen sticks of butter. Yogurberry uses only natural fruit sugar, just like monkeys eat, and in addition to containing no fat, it is packed with lactobacillus bifidus, a friendly bacteria that aids digestion. Because of fro-yo's natural bacteria, many lactose-intolerant people can indulge without regret, even on first dates. In addition to the health benefits, frozen yogurt stands up to room temperature better than ice cream, so slow eaters can savor every frozen bite.

The phenomenon known as the ice-cream headache or "brain freeze" is still considered very mysterious by scientists, although what we have learned from it tells us much about the human mind. For one thing, brain freezes only occur in people with above-average intelligence, who also carry the rare "rad" gene, which manifests in recessive awesomeness traits in everything from embroidery to snowboardery.
A brain freeze usually occurs when a food item of subzero temperature (ice-cream cone, frozen hot dog, et al.) is consumed rapidly, due to extreme deliciousness or an equally extreme desire to enter the movie theater quickly so as not to miss the trailer for Iron Man Too: 2 Iron Men.
These days, brain freezes are actually actively sought by culinary daredevils, or zealous "experiencers," who gobble up the frostiest of treats in hope of communing with a familiar tingly-head feeling that some believe actually stems from a higher-dimensional source of vast power and intelligence known only as the PermaFrost.
