“Frozen yogurt is tastier than ice cream,”
– Richelle E. Goodrich

You know what makes every day better? A big old scoop of ice cream, you know what’s even better than that? If you said Frogurt, you’re absolutely correct! Frozen Yogurt has all the benefits and diversity of ice cream, coming in a range of flavors just as incredible, but its far better for you! Frozen Yogurt Day lets you get your sweet tooth satisfied with cold creamy deliciousness, while helping to keep your heart and body healthy! What could be better?

History of Frozen Yogurt Day
Yogurt is a treat that has been with us since time out of mind, well over 4000 years in fact! It found its start in the Middle East and India, and was used extensively in just about every kind of meal you could imagine. But it wasn’t until the 1900’s that yogurt found its way to the Americas and increased in popularity so quickly and thoroughly that it’s no longer thought of as exotic. It wasn’t until the 1970’s, as Ice Cream was hitting an all time popularity, that some bright spark knew they could do better, and then they did.

Frozen Yogurt sales exploded after TCBY launched it’s first store in 1981, and by 1986 Frozen Yogurt sales reached $25 million dollars. By 1990, it was 10% of the frozen dessert market, and Frozen Yogurt was solidly here to stay. Frozen Yogurt Day reminds us to go out and enjoy this delicious alternative to Ice Cream, and to remember that sometimes the original isn’t the best, sometimes it’s all about innovation! So if you’re looking for a heart healthy dessert that has all the flavor and punch of ice cream, get out there and buy yourself some Frozen Yogurt!

How to celebrate Frozen Yogurt Day
#NationalFrozenYogurtDay can start your celebration, just post that on your Facebook page and other social media, and watch the frenzy ensue! If you haven’t had frozen yogurt in a while, get out there and buy yourself an absolute rainbow of flavors, and host a party where everyone brings their favorite toppings. You can even have a frozen yogurt day at your work, encourage everyone to bring in a box of their favorite flavor, and have a little frozen yogurt social right there at lunch time!
