The national chain TCBY announced that it is rolling out three new “Super Fro-Yo” flavors in the coming months: Pumpkin Spice, Apple Spice, and Eggnog. Super Fro-Yo, which TCBY introduced in 2010, contains a minimum of 3 grams of fiber, 4 grams of protein, 20 percent daily value of vitamin D, 20 percent daily value of calcium, 10 percent daily value of vitamin A, and seven live active probiotic cultures.
“The motivating force for Super Fro-Yo is looking at the health transit we see in the United States,” says Dr. Wayne Geilman, TCBY’s head of product development. “We know that people are really looking at the ingredient statements more, and they are looking for better nutrition than they currently have. So as we looked at it, the trends that really looked to be important were, No. 1, increasing fiber, and [then] reducing fat.”
“In increasing the fiber, we also were able to retain that rich, creamy texture that you normally associate with high-quality ice cream,” he says. “People still feel like they can give themselves a treat, but we’ve got this nutrition built into the format. … We have a nutritional advantage, and we also have a body and texture and flavor advantage.”
Calypso has a complete turn-key package for ice cream and frozen yogurt shops. A self-serve yogurt shop POS system must have seamless integration to a POS scale to calculate the cost of merchandise based on weight of what the customer is looking to purchase. No need to re-key a weight manually. The POS reads the weight from the scale automatically reducing employee error. With the Tare Weights the POS will reduce the weight by the weight of the cup and can configure multiple cup sizes. Calypso point of sale software systems feature an optional tracking of recipes, inventory, and ingredients, eliminating all the guess work. For more information contact Calypso today at 800-771-7100 .
