Pittsburgh Penguins Win the Stanley Cup (and Froyo!)


Fro-yo girl here. Bad Badtz Maru and Sid my Cinnamon Bun are thrilled that the Penguins have won the Stanley Cup, becoming the first team to win back to back championships in 19 years. Penguins are a common mascot for frozen yogurt shops. Quite a few current (and past) frozen yogurt shops are named after penguins. They’re probably second only to cows on the list of animals associated with frozen yogurt. 


Current Frozen Yogurt Shops Named After Penguins:



· Blue Penguin Frozen Yogurt (New Hope, PA): https://www.facebook.com/BluePenguinYogurt/

· Pink Penguin (Hutto, TX): https://www.facebook.com/Pink-Penguin-Frozen-Yogurt-125338829289/

· Purple Penguin (various locations in NC): http://www.purplepenguinfroyo.com/

· Penguin’s Frozen Yogurt (various locations in CA)

· The Cooperstown Penguin Ice Cream (Cooperstown, NY), yes they have froyo: http://www.cooperstownpenguin.com/

· The Frozen Penguin (Jacksonville, IL): https://www.facebook.com/The-Frozen-Penguin-208224862569766/

However, there isn’t a shop named after penguins in the home of the Penguins, Pittsburgh, PA. It is heartwarming to see that Pittsburgh does have an abundance of froyo shops though. Several regional froyo chains started in Pittsburgh.

Frozen Yogurt Shops in Pittsburgh, PA:



· Happy Berry

· Love N Spoonfuls

· Love Yogurt

· Menchie’s (PNC Park)

· Oh! Yogurt

· Piccadilly

· Pinkberry (Pittsburgh International Airport)

· Razzy Fresh (founded in Pittsburgh, 2010)

· Sincerely Yogurt (founded in Pittsburgh, had 23 locations when it was acquired by the owner of Vocelli Pizzalast year)

· Yogurt City

If I had to create a froyo sundae in honor of the Pittsburgh Penguins, I’d start with a swirl of cookies & cream, cover it with chocolate shell and add Nilla wafers, peanuts, and whipped cream. And I would share it with Bad Badtz Maru.

P.S. I hate country music!!!!

You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
