What does frozen yogurt add to an event?
Frozen yogurt bars for events can certainly add an element of fun and uniqueness. It also is a healthier option to consider for your wider variety of guests when comparing other desserts like cake, brownies or cookies. The frozen yogurt at Cultured Swirl, for example, happens to be 100% certified organic.
The frozen yogurt will likely be delivered in Styrofoam cups (or other similar containers) and is able to remain frozen for several hours. Most vendors will provide spoons and toppings to accompany this tasty treat. The yogurt can be stored in a freezer until ready to serve, so if event hosts have extra space or a second freezer, this is also always a good option.
What time of day is best for a frozen yogurt bar?
While the folks at Cultured Swirl have certainly eaten frozen yogurt for breakfast, they admit that most customers want to enjoy it in the afternoon or evenings. Frozen yogurt bars make ideal additions to luncheons, birthday celebrations, baby and bridal showers, office parties and business events. Special, more formal, containers are also available for weddings to match the theme of a more formal event.
Can it be a themed frozen yogurt bar?
Yes, event planners and hosts can create any theme they’d like around their frozen yogurt bars, but we usually leave the decorating up to them.
Typically portions are about 3 oz. of frozen yogurt, with one additional once of toppings served in a Styrofoam cup, or the host’s container of choice. The customer picks the flavors and toppings. (At Cultured Swirl, for example, we have a 20-cup minimum when ordering.)
What flavors would you suggest? How is the bar arranged?
For our brand, our signature Pomberry Tart and Salted Caramel are our most popular flavors. We also offer up to eight different organic and two vegan flavors to choose from at any given time. We let the customer decide where to set up and we arrange the cups and toppings unless the customer wishes to do so.
