Indulge In A Delicious And Healthy Treat On National Frozen Yogurt Day In Utah
Listen, I know it's still cold right now, even in Southern Utah but there is never a bad time to indulge in some frozen yogurt.
Apparently, I am not the only one who thinks so since National Frozen Yogurt Day is celebrated annually on Feb. 6. That’s definitely still Winter in most places.
Frozen yogurt has been around since 1970 which makes it a rather “new” food in history's eyes. However, it only seems to be growing in popularity according to the National Day Calendar. This is because it is a healthy alternative to ice cream.
“H.P Hood developed the first frozen yogurt in 1970 in the United States. It was created as a soft-serve treat called Frogurt. Not long afterward, Humphreys and Dannon released their own versions of frozen yogurt. Its popularity grew in the 80s, mostly due to frozen yogurts "health food" status. Ice cream manufacturers soon caught on, offering low-fat options.”—National Day Calendar
Southern Utah has a few Menchie’s locations and one Yogurtland in St. George. Both specialize in frozen yogurt and are great date places! Or you can just go by yourself but either way it's delicious.
So, Tuesday, Feb. 6 is the perfect day to go out and grab some frozen yogurt from your favorite local shop or even the grocery store to celebrate at home.
I’d love to hear what some of your favorite places to grab frozen yogurt are!
