Craving a cold treat that won’t defeat your personal battle of the bulge? Try fro-yo! Lower in fat than ice cream, this tart treat usually comes paired with a variety of toppings, from fresh fruit to cereals like Cap’n Crunch. - Melissa Watts

See our most recent roundup of fro-yo spots in Philly worth trying here.

Kiwi Yogurt

(formerly known as Sprinkles Yogurt)
Multiple locations, check website for details

If you’re looking for options, Kiwi Yogurt doesn’t disappoint. With flavors ranging from Irish mint to birthday cake and even some sugar-free options, even the pickiest frozen yogurt eater can find something they like here.

Marathon Grill

Multiple locations, check website for details
http://www.marathongrill.com

A Philadelphia staple since the late 80s, Marathon Grill offers great food…and frozen yogurt treats! While there aren’t as many flavors on the roster, Marathon makes up for it in quality. The classic vanilla and chocolate are available everyday, and the restaurant rotates between cookies and cream, peanut butter, and cheesecake. Bonus: Toppings here – like granola – adorn the top, middle, and bottom of your frozen yogurt cup. Yum!

Phileo

416 South Street
Philadelphia, PA 19147
(215) 873-8361

This store is very reminiscent of West Coast chain Pinkberry, with bright neon signs and pink walls. There are even Jetson-style chairs that make you feel like you’ve stepped into the future. One of the first frozen yogurt spots to pop up in the City of Brotherly love, Phileo has more than a dozen rotating flavors and all the toppings you could want – from healthy fruit options and cereal to authentic Japanese mochi and gummy bears.

Sweet Ending

1800 Chestnut Street
Philadelphia, PA 19103
(215) 568-0089

1300 Walnut Street
Philadelphia, PA 19107
(215) 772-1210
www.sweetendingyogurt.com

Sweet Ending was one of the first frozen yogurt places to pop up in Philadelphia. With ever-changing flavors from mango to cream cheese – and a topping bar with freshly cut fruit and classic cereals – this fro-yo place fast became a Philadelphia staple. The 13th and Walnut Street location even has extended hours until 2 a.m. on the weekends, so you can get your yogurt fix after a night out.

Yogorino

233 South 20th Street
Philadelphia, PA 19103
(267) 639-5287

The most sophisticated frozen yogurt place in Philadelphia, Yogorino near Rittenhouse offers the smoothest, creamiest frozen yogurt this side of the Delaware River. It’s a little classier, too, with super-friendly staff and none of the flashy signs we’re used to seeing. There are unique toppings too, like their popular pistachio sauce or rock candies. The folks at Yogorino also pride themselves on their probiotic yogurt, which means it contains good, healthy bacteria our bodies love. Oh, and their sweet treats come in a recyclable cup!

Red Mango
1425 Locust St
Philadelphia, Pa.
www.redmangousa.com

Though it’s a chain, the recently opened Red Mango in Center City serves up some seriously good fro-yo. Plus, they offer a slew of toppings, a wide variety of flavors (cake batter! peach! mango!) and a spick-and-span place to eat–no matter what time of day you come in. Bonus: There is no credit card minimum!
