Get in the “Fro” Zone

Get in the “Fro” Zone

When summer is heating up, what better way to cool down than with a cup of frozen yogurt (better known as “froyo”) at FroZone in Durham?

Just a five-minute walk from campus, this downtown Durham hotspot has it all, with flavors from tiramisu and snickerdoodle to mango sorbet and strawberry cream cake.  It’s enough to make even the craziest frozen fantasies reality.

I was able to get the inside scoop on FroZone from Jen, an employee.

They Support Student Organizations

That’s right. FroZone will happily donate up to 20% of their sales to your organization or club if you mention it at checkout. In the past, they’ve helped fundraise for UNH Cheerleading, Friends of Jaclyn, Relay for Life and Army ROTC.

They Offer Special Promotions 

Get this: On certain days you can get 16-ounce cups of froyo, filled as much as you like, for four dollars. Jen says the top three flavors of froyo are chocolate chip cookie dough, sea salted caramel pretzel and jamocha. But vanilla and cookies and cream are not far behind. As for toppings? “Definitely cookie dough — it’s everyone’s favorite,” Jen says, followed closely by Reese’s Pieces and Oreos.

They Are Student Friendly

They accept Cat’s Cache. “That’s a big thing. A lot of students will come in here with Cat’s Cache,” Jen says. So if you find yourself rummaging through your pockets for cash, just use your ID!

After all, with finals on the horizon, wouldn’t froyo be a great use of a study break?
