Yogurt has been around for centuries, but frozen yogurt is a relatively new idea.
In 1981 the first frozen yogurt store opened in Little Rock, Arkansas. TCBY (The Country’s Best Yogurt) was so popular they had a franchise with 100 stores across the US in their first 4 years. By 2011 they had over 1,000 stores but with competition in the market, in 2020 there are 360+ nationwide with stores internationally as well.
They are celebrating Frozen Yogurt Day by giving out FREE 6 oz frozen yogurt!
How to celebrate Frozen Yogurt Day:
- eat frozen yogurt of course – visit your local store with family and friends
- make frozen yogurt – see recipes on our Frozen Yogurt Day Pinterest Board
- watch The Stuff a B-list horror/comedy movie by Larry Cohen
“A delicious, mysterious goo that oozes from the earth is marketed as the newest dessert sensation, but the tasty treat rots more than teeth when zombie-like snackers who only want to consume more of the strange substance at any cost begin infesting the world.” IMDb
The Stuff features actors Michael Moriarty, Paul Sorvino and Danny Aiello
Made in 1985, it is a scruffy free-form movie that uses a set from Wes Craven’s A Nightmare On Elm Street. Perfect way to celebrate frozen yogurt that was the craze in the same era.
