We’re never tired (but getting close) about talking about fro-yo. And, we can’t pass up on a buy one-get-one-free offer, which Icicles, the newest gourmet frozen yogurt shop in OC is offering today. What makes Icicles so special? For one, lucky students are just a block away from it a Corona del Mar High school—-but really it’s the secret recipe with an extra smooth and creamy taste.
Today, in celebration of the grand opening, Icicles is offering a “buy one, get one half off” on the lesser of two sizes. Stop by from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., one per customer.
