The Sweet History of Froyo May 23, 2017

The Sweet History of Froyo, Manhattan, New York

In recent years, frozen yogurt has become immensely popular, earning it a distinct place on the dessert map. But long before delicious frozen yogurt shops like Pinkberry were started, froyo was created, loved, and shared with the masses.

A Brief History of Froyo

froyoThe first commercial brand of froyo was called Frogurt, and it was scooped out like ice cream and served in New England. However, frozen yogurt did not become popular until the health craze of the 1980s, when brands like Dannon started serving froyo in the form of packaged fruity popsicles. TCBY was the first company to sell frozen yogurt in soft-serve form, which it started doing in the 1980s.

In 2005, the first Pinkberry frozen yogurt shop opened, serving its signature tart froyo and kickstarting the modern-day trend we know and love.
