People who guessed "Frogurt" will be absolutely correct! Frozen yogurt has all the benefits and flavor variety bestowed on its more famous predecessor, ice cream.

Frozen yogurt can satisfy the sweet tooth with its delicious ice cream, while helping to keep the heart and body healthy! What could be better?

History of National Frozen Yogurt Day

Frozen yogurt is celebrated today. It is a lower-fat dessert than ice cream, as milk is used to make it instead of ice cream. Not only using cow's milk but also using sheep, goat and water buffalo milk. It usually has a more sour taste than ice cream. Frozen yogurt also often has healthy probiotics, although not all types do. Today it can be purchased at grocery stores or in soft serve form at frozen yogurt stores.

On National Frozen Yogurt Day, some businesses give away frozen yogurt for free or at a discount. Frozen yogurt is also celebrated in June. The International Frozen Yogurt Association has called for National Frozen Yogurt Day to be called International Frozen Yogurt Day, as more and more frozen yogurt shops around the world.

Yogurt has been appeared for about 5,000 years ago in the Middle East and India. It was brought to the United States in the early 1900s and Dannon began selling prepackaged yogurt in the 1930s. In the early 1970s, frozen yogurt was launched in the market but having not much success. Some people say they don't like the taste of it and it tastes too much like yogurt. The first commercial brand was Frogurt; it debuted in New England and is served as a scoop like ice cream. In 1979, Dannon began making "Danny," a frozen yogurt on a chocolate-covered stick.

After ordering something that tasted like ice cream but was healthier, TCBY - now short for "The Country's Best Yogurt" - opened a store in 1981. Frozen yogurt is made through a machine. Soft serve, not pre-packaged like previous versions. Frozen yogurt started gaining popularity in the more health-conscious 1980s. More frozen yogurt stores began to pop up, and frozen yogurt sales reached $25 million by 1986. By the 1990s, ten percent of frozen desserts sold in the United States were frozen yogurts. However, as the 1990s progressed, interest in frozen yogurt dwindled, and there was greater demand for higher-fat foods.

In the mid-2000s, frozen yogurt was back in popularity. Powdered yogurt mixes were invented, which helped in popularity in the United States, but also made frozen yogurt more accessible to countries that didn't yet. Pinkberry opened in 2005. They started serving frozen yogurt in soft serve, and quickly became popular. Yogurtland opened its first self-service frozen yogurt store in 2006, where patrons could make their own yogurt with a variety of toppings. More self-service yogurt shops are opening soon. At present, there are some most popular frozen yogurt brands such as TCBY, Menchie's, Yogurtland, sweetFrog, and Red Mango.
