There are two ways to eat frozen yogurt.

The first way is to enjoy a small serving size with fresh fruit, a healthy alternative to regular ice cream.

The second way is to load a large serving with nuts, cookie crumbs, sprinkles and other assorted yumminess. Which, if we’re honest with ourselves, is how most of us choose to enjoy this otherwise healthy treat.

Frozen yogurt made its debut as a soft-serve dessert in New England in the 1970s. It was marketed as “Frogurt” by dairy distributor H.P. Hood. Other companies soon followed, and the trend took off in the 1980s.

The frozen treat has been making a resurgence in South County in recent years. Diners can choose from Revelations in Edmonds; Red Mango, Menchie’s and TCBY in Lynnwood; and Skinny Dip in Mill Creek.

Ice cream moguls Ben and Jerry offer their popular “Cherry Garcia,” “Half Baked,” “Chocolate Fudge Brownie” and “Phish Food” flavors in yogurt form. Ben &Jerry’s has also developed Greek yogurt flavors: “Banana Peanut Butter”; “Blueberry Vanilla Graham”; “Raspberry Fudge Chunk”; and “Strawberry Shortcake.”
