Like magma and dreams, frozen yogurt is a semisolid—neither solid enough to build a house upon nor liquid enough to feed to a thirsty sparrow. Partake of a wonder of science with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a punch card good for six treats at Yumygurt Frozen Yogurt in Alameda (a $4 value/treat; a $24 total value).
For 26 years, Yumygurt Frozen Yogurt has swirled sumptuous peaks of frozen yogurt alongside an array of Lappert's ice cream, sweet smoothies, and other icy treats. Nineteen yogurt flavors fill cups ($3.25—$4.65) with classic tastes, including swiss chocolate and original tart, as singular flavors such as banana cream and peanut butter keep taste buds on their toes. Several sugar-free varieties lighten sucrose loads, forging a health-minded treat similar to the chocolate jacuzzis at the end of every marathon. Once flavors are selected, an array of 18 toppings crown frozen confections with choices such as chopped nuts, chocolate chips, and strawberry sauce. Locally made Lappert's ice cream also caps cones with 16 scoopable flavors as straws sip sweetness from frozen drinks and specialty coffees.
