Yogurt Mountain has managed to earn rave reviews from the people of Destin, which is quite a feat considering the number of places in the area to grab a cold and creamy treat. Even with ice cream and frozen custard readily available on nearly every corner, frozen yogurt has managed to stand out in a big way. People love coming here for the quality of the yogurt, the selection of toppings, and the fast and friendly service. 

And despite its name, Yogurt Mountain does have ice cream and Italian Ice selections too. As far as the ordering goes, it’s up to you to create what you want. Part of what guests love about coming here is the ability to create their own work of art. Candies are set out to complement the colors of the yogurt, and you can use dividers to separate each section of your creation for the ultimate in aesthetics and taste. Flavors won’t mix together with the dividers, so you can discover your next favorite dish without interference. 

The staff also give its patrons ideas if they’re having trouble deciding at the toppings station. When the weather starts turning colder, why not warm up with a cup of S’mores, complete with crumbled graham crackers, and marshmallows? When only chocolate will do, make yourself a Triple Chocolate option loaded with candy, syrup, and chocolate straws. The contrasting texture of all that chocolate has patrons ordering up cup after cup of it. 

And if you’re looking for something a little fresher, there are options like mint chocolate chip, blueberry tart, or mango sorbet. The actual flavors are on a constant rotation, but you’re sure to find one that floats your banana boat. 

Here are a few yogurt flavors that you might want to try while you’re there:

Aunt Ida’s Poundcake 
If you’ve never had poundcake in frozen form, maybe it’s time to give it a try. Aunt Ida makes an amazing pound cake, and this option is a lot like having a slice of cake and ice cream in the same bite. Unique and delicious, this is definitely a must-try. 

Iced Cinnamon Roll 
When you’ve woken up a little too late for breakfast, an iced cinnamon roll can be a good compromise. Plus, this flavor is gluten-free, giving you a chance to get all the goodness of the pastry without the grains. 

No Sugar Added Olde Fashioned Vanilla 

Vanilla provides the perfect base for your yogurt creations, and it’s all the better when it helps you cut back on your sugar intake. Whether you’re watching your waistline or just want to stay on the right side of health, you won’t miss out on the flavor. 

Regulars love more than just the food here though. The line moves efficiently, the toppings and yogurt station are always neat and clean, and the air conditioning is just as much a treat as the yogurt on the hottest of days. The staff loves to get to know both the locals and tourists in the area and makes it a point to promote their new flavors at every turn, whether online or in-person. 

Insider Tips:
– You decide the amount of yogurt you want, the flavors, and the toppings. Simply select everything you love and pay by the weight. 
– The flavors rotate on a regular basis and reflect seasonal and classic favorites alike.
