On a day such as today, with temperatures reaching a spring-like 65 degrees and the Square bustling thanks to the start of Ole Miss baseball season, seeing a sign that noted the forthcoming Ya-Ya’s Frozen Yogurt shop on the first floor of the Thompson House was a welcome treat.
Not too long from now we’ll put away our coats and gather at Sno-Biz for icy bliss, Holli’s Sweet Tooth for scoop upon luscious scoop of cool happiness in a cone, and now–hopefully in time for summer–Ya-Ya’s, for some low-cal frozen yogurt. Track the progress of Ya-Ya’s on Facebook here.
UPDATE 2/23/10 – OK, new details to report…Scott Winslow will be running the shop along with his friend Bart Smith who he met at the University of Florida (both have ties to Ole Miss). Bart says Ya-Ya’s will offer self-serve frozen yogurt, letting you choose from eight flavors (four rotating) and a toppings bar with fresh fruit and dry toppings. You’ll have the option to taste the yogurt flavors before you buy and create as large or small of a yogurt sundae as you like (prices will be calculated by ounce). Smoothies will also be available.
UPDATE 4/20/10: Your wait is over. Ya-Ya’s opens today!
