6 Best Frozen Yogurts On Grocery Store Shelves
Frozen yogurt has long been a popular alternative to ice cream—anyone else remember obsessively checking the flavors at your local TCBY back in the day? While popular chains like Pinkberry have brought fro-yo into modern times, you don't have to hit up a soft serve shop to get delicious frozen yogurt. These days, the grocery store shelves are well stocked with plenty of fro-yo options to satisfy any taste.
As to whether frozen yogurt is a healthier option than ice cream, that really depends on the sugar content of the product. While fro-yo generally has less fat and calories than ice cream, some brands may compensate for the tangy taste by adding loads of sugar—making it more of a treat food than a health food.
If you like the taste of frozen yogurt, it can be a fantastic summer dessert or afternoon treat. Some brands like Yasso, which uses Greek yogurt, lean into the tangy fro-yo flavor, without trying to be an ice cream substitute. Others will make you think you're eating ice cream—except with fewer calories!
Here are the products you'll want to toss in your cart if you're a fro-yo fan or even if you're just fro-yo curious!

This wonderful fro-yo is made with whole milk yogurt and contains real vanilla bean specks and a wildflower honey ribbon. The product is kosher and gluten-free and contains 28 grams of sugar per serving and 10 grams of fat. "This Noosa honey vanilla gelato is roarin' good!" wrote one reviewer. "It's loaded with vanilla bean 'specs,' and there are beautiful swirls of not-too-sweet honey. This is my first purchase. I'm afraid it won't be my last. THIS IS DELICIOUS!"

When you're craving a sweet treat, this low-fat fro-yo made with cultured non-fat milk is the perfect choice.
