What's the Best Frozen Treat

August 1, 2006 -- Posted at 6:36 p.m. CDT

JONESBORO, AR -- What's better on a hot summer day than a cold tasty treat?  If you're looking for a sweet treat in Region 8 you could have quite a decision before you.

There are so many different things to choose from...frozen yogurt, frozen custard and ice cream.

We start journey of discovery with a trip to The Country's Best Yogurt, a.k.a. TCBY.

"Our frozen yogurt has half the calories of ice cream and it's 97% fat free," said TCBY manager Lynn Denton.

However, when it's hot and you're looking to cool down it's not always your health that you're thinking about.... you're looking for something that will taste great!

"I'm kind of more of a creature of habit.  I guess because I find myself coming here anytime I eat anything," said customer Craig Boone. 

"It's just a wonderful product.  It's an alternative to ice cream, and it tastes great," said Denton as she served up a cone.

TCBY offers a soft serve and a hard packed frozen yogurt.

"Vanilla is always the favorite and I think that's the most popular in yogurt and in ice cream," said Denton.  

If you're looking to go for the more traditional summer treat, you can always head over to Bruster's Ice Cream.

"We have close to 170 flavors.  There are new ones invented each year and we rotate the flavors, so we may not have your favorite ice cream that day," said Bruster's Manager Leslie Morgan.

There is something that sets Bruster's Ice Cream apart from other companies...they churn it themselves.

"Its real ice cream made with real products and fresh products," said Morgan.  

But if you're not looking for frozen yogurt and ice cream is just not for you, there is one more option...Andy's Frozen Custard just opened up last week.

 "Frozen custard is manufactured at 18 to 22 degrees above zero," said Donald Showalter, owner of Andy's Frozen Custard.

Because ice cream is so cold, it sort of freezes your taste buds.   Those with Andy's Frozen Custard say their product allows you to savor the flavor.

"With frozen custard, it being a warmer product, you're able to taste the vanilla, the chocolate and everything that goes in it," said Showalter. 

So, now it's up to you what frozen treat you choose.
