At the forefront of Dallas’ frozen yogurt trend is this Addison shop, where four rotating flavors of the mouth- tingling treat (from plain and chocolate to apricot-peach and green tea, some flavored with Splenda) are offered daily. A choice of more than two dozen toppings lets you go as healthy as you want.

Staffers here will happily rattle off the difference between ice cream and frozen custard (the frozen custard appeal: Less whipped-in air plus smaller ice crystals equals smoother, denser product). Customers order at the window and then linger with their custards in the little parklike area. Beyond the always-available chocolate, vanilla and lite vanilla, July’s special flavor is Spartan County peach. Oh, yes.

This treat shop near old town Frisco has only two flavors: chocolate and vanilla. The menu, though, lists dozens of ways to gussy them up, including sundaes, shakes and caliches, which are blend-ins with more than 40 choices of nuts, candies, flavors and other ingredients, such as banana pudding. Seating features a partially enclosed patio.
