Have you heard the latest “scoop?” February 6 is National Frozen Yogurt Day!
One of my family’s favorite things to do after a long day of school and extra curricular activities is to stop by our local frozen yogurt shop for a treat. I am a traditionalist and like the vanilla flavor. Field Trip Boy enjoys tasting all the latest and greatest flavors. Field Trip Girl, on the other hand, prefers the same every time – sweet strawberry. While “Mr. SoCal Field Trips” has a fancy for cappuccino flavored. We sure are a diverse family when it comes to frozen yogurt!
The History of Frozen Yogurt
Frozen yogurt first came about in the 1970s. But it didn’t gain widespread popularity until the 1980s, when recipes improved to the frozen yogurt we have and love today. The U.S. produces close to 50 million gallons of frozen yogurt a year and Americans spend over $200 million on this delicious treat. Vanilla is also the most popular frozen yogurt flavor and I couldn’t agree more!
