Giveaway: Yum Yo’s Frozen Treats Party

We know the pandemic is still impacting the holidays this year, but we’re SO grateful that Northwest Arkansas is in a better position than we were in 2020. This week, to honor the approach of Thanksgiving 2021 happening next week, 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 “Friendsgiving” for her kid and several of his or her friends to celebrate how wonderful it is to get together with friends and family again. (If you like, you can use it as a Friendsgiving for your mama friends, too!)

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 “Friendsgiving” party at Yum Yo’s, so that should cover the treats of up to 12 people! (You choose the date.)

Then write a quick comment telling us at least one of the things that the pandemic has made you even more thankful for this year. (Hugs from friends and family? Good health? In-person school?)

  1. It has made me thankful for the ability to travel. It was something we took for granted until 2020 when all of a sudden we couldn’t see our grandchildren in California & Alaska. I’m so thankful we could travel and see them all in 2021.

  2. I’m so thankful to be able get together with family for a big dinner! The simplest things mean so much now!

  3. We missed our family vacations. We weren’t able to go to many of the places because of the pandemic and now we can finally start going out and making memories outside the house!

  4. I’m thankful for hugs. I’ve missed being able to hug everyone all the time!

  5. I’m so so thankful for being able to spend the holidays together with extended family.

  6. I’m thankful for my friends’ and family’s health through the horrible last year or so. It helped us to get even more intentional about our health habits.

  7. My now-sophomore in college was a senior in 2019. Her last semester of high school wasn’t what we thought it would look like but the forced togetherness was wonderful.

  8. I’m thankful for in-person school and more normal schedules and routines-it makes such a difference for everyone’s mental health.

  9. So very thankful to celebrate all the holidays with my son. He missed the last two years due to the military

  10. So thankful to be able to spend time with my husband who has dementia. I was able to work from home and spend valuable time with him

  11. It has made me thankful that I can now work from home and my kiddos are doing virtual. Lots of family time!
