Wednesday, Feb. 6 is National Free Frozen Yogurt Day, and fans around the country have a rare chance for a cheap treat.
Fro-yo carries a lot of baggage, having clawed its way up from a trendy dessert to a niche market to a snack staple. The delicious confection has been called the territory of hipsters, mocked as a fixation of "basic" people and even featured as a major plot point on NBC's The Good Place. Miraculously, frozen yogurt has risen above all that to become a fixture of American life.
People around the country are celebrating that fixture on Wednesday with yogurt flowing freely at select restaurants. Shoppers can head out on a mission to treat themselves to their favorite delight, or they may be pleasantly surprised on an unrelated shopping trip or commute.
Here are some the deals you can take advantage of on this National Frozen Yogurt Day.

Yasso's massive fro-yo giveaway is tied to the company's Instagram presence. Custmoers must follow the company, along with its partner, P.J. Salvage, and "like" Yasso's National Frozen Yogurt Day post. They must also leave a comment tagging a friend to help spread the word. They will then be entered to win a year's supply of Yasso frozen yogurt as well as two Lounge Sets of pajamas from P.J. Salvage. This, at least, is one giveaway fans can take part in without leaving the house!
