Hey, guess what? Desserts are delicious – this isn’t an opinion, this is a cold hard fact. Don’t think so? Take ice cream for instance. Ice cream is so good that all someone has to do to sell it is just drive around in a truck, play some music and kids come running. That’s science. So for the kid in all of us, here are four great spots to check out when you feel like indulging your sweet tooth.
There’s a reason there’s over 300 locations across the US and in five countries. Yogurt Land is insanely good. For the uninitiated, Yogurtland is a magical place with various frozen yogurt flavors distributed via a soft serve ice cream machine and every topping you can think of. You grab a bowl, pile in whatever flavors and topping you want, they weigh it for you, and you're off to the delicious races.
Jeremiah’s Italian Ice
Some people think Italian Ice is just shredded ice with some fruit juice sprinkled on it. But that’s like saying pizza is just heated dough with some melted cheese sprinkled on it.

When you stop by, you’ll be bombarded with over 40 different flavors ranging from classic Mango to the outrageous Pumpkin Pie. Have a hard time deciding? No problem. That’s what the free samples are for! Just watch out for the brain freeze.

And you can wash it all down with one of their signature Milshakes, or their Frozen and Cold Brew Coffee drinks.
