Sometimes after a jog around the lake, you might be content with a swig of cold water. Other times, you might want to tilt your head back and pump soft serve into your mouth. For the latter occasions, grab a cup of frozen yogurt at ZoëYogurt. It’s one of those places where you can take as much yogurt and toppings as you want and pay per weight. Even though it sounds like a sugar factory, we like that their peanut butter flavor is more tart than sweet. Just don’t really stick your face near the dispensers. That’s a great way to set a terrible example for the children.
