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.
At Icicles you can choose from 10 flavors that rotate weekly that can be swirled together. More than 40 toppings include cereal, candy bar pieces, nuts, fresh strawberries, raspberries and many more. The non-fat frozen yogurt flavors include Country Vanilla; Red Velvet; Dulce de Leche; Chocolate Blend; Cookies and Cream; Cake Batter; Raspberry Pomegranate Sorbet; Eurotart; Reese’s Peanut Butter and Strawberry Banana. Icicles also serves no-sugar added and non-dairy frozen yogurt.
