Road Trip Survival Series: TCBY

TCBY Storefront Exterior
TCBY
As one of the largest U.S. retailers of soft-serve frozen yogurt, TCBY makes it easy to get vegan soft-serve frozen yogurt for the mainstream. They now have three vegan flavors - Silk Chocolate Almond, Silk Vanilla Almond, and Silk Coconut. All three are vegan, dairy free, and gluten free. I thought it was really cool that TCBY actually uses probiotics in making this non-dairy frozen yogurt. The flavors of the day vary so you probably won't find all three vegan options available on any given day, but this just gives you a reason to keep going back.

In researching this post, I decided to take one for the team and try it out myself. I have tried and enjoyed both the chocolate almond and vanilla almond flavors. I can appreciate the fact that TCBY has so many locations and makes it possible to go out with family and friends and have ice cream or fro yo like I used to. Maybe once I spread the word, they'll start inviting me out for fro yo again. Or maybe there is some other reason they stopped inviting me. ;)

If you go to TCBY on a Wednesday, they have Waffle Cone Wednesday (do they do this everywhere?) and the price of a waffle cone is less than half the regular price of the fro yo. To my surprise, the girl at the store told me that the waffle cone is vegan! Check with your local store though because apparently the store-made waffle cones contain egg. TCBY also has vegan toppings you can put on your fro yo, like fresh fruit, nuts, oreos, and peanut butter sauce.

  2. Thanks for taking one for the team! LOL I must admit that frozen yoghurt looks delicious almost enough to make me want to buy an air ticket! :o)

    1. I didn't realize until I got home that I could have got peanut butter sauce. I think that would be an awesome combination! I hope you can make it again before you leave!

    1. What a bargain, right!? I wondered why there were so many people there on a weeknight when I got there.

  5. Oh, you're lucky. I've been so eager to try their vegan flavors, but there isn't a TCBY for many miles near us. Every once in a while I do a search on Google maps to see if any new locations have opened nearby. Alas!

    1. Bummer! We have to take whatever we can get around here because there are very few ice cream or fro yo places with vegan options.

  8. I'm with Amey, we don't have a TCBY near here except one that apparently didn't carry it. Luckily there's a local place that has just opened that is doing a weekly vegan flavour. Woo!
