Giveaway: The Last Blast of Summer party at Yum Yo’s for kids!

Happy Monday, mamas! We know your kids might not want to hear this, but the beginning of a new school year is coming up quickly — like next month. But before we say “See ya!” to the Summer Break of 2021, we’re hosting a fun giveaway celebration courtesy of our friends at Yum Yo’s Frozen Treats.

The winner (chosen at random) of this week’s giveaway will get a “Last Blast of Summer” party for her kid and several of his or her friends to mark the end of the summer break.

Your kid can invite friends to meet at either of the two Yum Yo’s locations (Rogers at the Pinnacle Hills Promenade Mall or in Fayetteville at the Northwest Arkansas Mall) and have frozen yogurt or parfaits or Italian ice or gelato or even a Starbucks Frappuccino blended with frozen yogurt (called FroYoccinno). Yum Yo’s is now under new management, and the menu is so BIG. Some of the other things you’ll find on the menu include Dole Whips, Red Bull power slushes, fruit smoothies, floats, and specialty frozen yogurt pies. Even your pickiest friends will find something they love.

There ARE non-gluten, dairy-free and vegan options on the menu, so don’t worry about dietary restrictions. They’ve got you covered.

Speaking of getting covered, one of our favorite parts of a trip to Yum Yo’s is standing in front of that glorious wall of toppings and deciding which ones we want to use to cover our frozen yogurt. That colorful wall has more than 60 options! SIXTY! Here’s just a partial list of some of the toppings you’ll find:

  • candies
  • sprinkles
  • gummies
  • fresh fruit
  • popping boba
  • granola
  • nuts
  • cereal varieties
  • cookie crumbles
  • cheesecake bites
  • cookie dough
  • hot fudge
  • coconut
  • syrups
  • sauces
  • whipped cream


You’ll have a $100 gift card to spend during your “Last Blast of Summer” party at Yum Yo’s, so that should cover the treats of up to 12 people!
