Today is our favorite holiday! We’ve been planning for this day for months, we’ve made all the preparations and we’re finally ready to celebrate with all our favorite Gresham locals and froyo fans around the world.
That’s right, it’s National Frozen Yogurt Day!
You may be wondering how today, arguably the most important day of the year, escaped your calendar. Well, you certainly aren’t alone in this pondering — the true origins of National FroYo day are actually a mystery. Even though nationwide, we eat over 121 million servings annually, we’re 10 times as likely to choose frozen yogurt over decadent ice cream, and there are nearly a thousand froyo shops dotting the map from coast to coast, we still have no idea whose great idea it was to proclaim today, of all days, a national holiday in celebration of frozen yogurt.
But we have a few hypotheses:
- From the dawn of time, February 6th has always been frozen yogurt day, we only just realized it.
- TCBY made it up in 1980 to boost interest in what — at the time was — a decidedly polarizing “healthy” frozen desert masquerading as ice cream.
- Dannon Inc. created the day to promote their own failed attempts at marketing frozen yogurt in the 1930s.
- Writers of the hit 80s television show ALF invented it for an episode and we collectively accepted it as gospel and added it to our national calendar.
No matter where this miraculous holiday originated from, we’re ready to celebrate it with all of you! Visit Frenzi Frozen Yogurt today to join us in observation of this high holiday with a creamy FroYo sundae with all your favorite toppings.
