Did you know that August 2 was National Ice Cream Sandwich Day? My family loves to celebrate interesting and fun holidays, but we decided to throw in a twist this time and celebrate with some frozen yogurt. We celebrated TCBY Frozen Yogurt Sandwich Day…with some sprinkles and some family fun!!
Shopping for TCBY Frozen Yogurt Sandwiches
This past week, Hubby went to the doctor and learned that he has gained more weight and I know that I have been gaining as well so we are looking at ways to start eating better. Since we were looking to celebrate National Ice Cream Sandwich Day, we decided to make it healthier and turn it into a TCBY Frozen Yogurt Sandwich Day instead. We have seen this display for TCBY Frozen Yogurt at Walmart over and over and I always stop to look, but this time we were there to buy.
My boy was so excited when he saw the frozen yogurt sandwiches, he wanted to start eating right away! I told him that we are celebrating the sandwiches and decorating them and he loved the idea. We planned to take them to my dad's house (Papa and Granny) and decorate for everyone. I love that TCBY has the health benefits displayed brightly on the front of the box – 180 calories and 7 type of probiotics (something that both my boy and I could benefit from). You can find more of our shopping trip in my Shopping for #TCBYGrocery Frozen Yogurt Sandwich Day Celebration Google Album.
Time to celebrate Frozen Yogurt Sandwich Day
Every Sunday, we head to my dad's in the afternoon/evening and he cooks Sunday dinner and we all spend time as a family. This Sunday was no different except my boy was ready for the celebration to begin from the moment we walked in the door. We all sat down to eat dinner and after one bite, he was already asking when we were going to make the sandwiches. After a long agonizing dinner, where the adults actually wanted to enjoy the meal and visit while eating, we finally let him dig into the box.
While Hubby and my parents moved to the living room, Aunt B joined us to make the frozen yogurt sandwich treats.
This was The Boy's first creation with green sprinkles. He took a few bites and then moved on to his second sandwich. I think he was more into the decorating than the eating.
Aunt B put her pink sparkle to use and made this striped frozen yogurt sandwich. This one went to Granny, who said she enjoyed how the cookie on the frozen yogurt sandwiches stayed slightly crunchy unlike a typical ice cream sandwich. She was surprised that she liked the frozen yogurt more than ice cream!
Hubby really like icing so I made him a frozen yogurt sandwich with cookie icing and sprinkles. He loved it and said we can celebrate Frozen Yogurt Sandwich Day again soon!
The Boy's second creation looked similar to his first, but with more colorful sprinkles. the let this one melt a little and then dug in. He likes it "melty".
This one was my experiment with food coloring – the RED frozen yogurt sandwich! (it was quite yummy!!)
We had so much fun celebrating TCBY Frozen Yogurt Sandwich Day and The Boy loved the frozen yogurt. He's not a big fan of ice cream so I was happy to see that he liked this treat and that it is healthier for a treat. We won't be covering them with sugary sprinkles every time because (1) that takes away from the "healthier" option and (2) they don't NEED sprinkles to be AWESOME!!
