This is why I had friends for one whole day

Hello!!! I am starting my day with a lil run. Shocker.

But before I forget I wanted to stop in and tell you about my ice cream social party. Recently the lovely people at Yasso contacted me about having a party for my friends. YES!!! Eating fro-yo is already like a party, right?!

Except the one bummer about living my life on the internet is that I have no friends.

So, I posted a Craigslist ad offering delicious frozen greek yogurt in exchange for friendship. And it worked!

I got a variety of flavors for the party, but my local store didn’t have my favorite flavor – Mint Chocolate Chip. Boo.

If this flavor is in a store near you, get it. They make 11 flavors. (At the party Salted Caramel was the most popular so try that one too.)


And imagine my surprise when none other than SkinnyRunner herself showed up at my fiesta! She can be coaxed back onto the internet with sweet treats. Hey, we all have a price.

    I love Yasso bars, but my grocery only has the coconut, dark chocolate raspberry, and chocolate fudge. I would love to try the sea salt caramel!

  2. says

    Hahah you guys are too funny – love the pictures. I’ve never tried Yasso but in definitely going to have to buy them after seeing all those delicious flavors! I would love to win the Blueberry flavor… yummmmzzz. Thanks Monica!

  3. Paige Callahan says

    I have the sea salt caramel flavor and they are awesome! Next I would try the mint chocolate chip flavor!

  4. Lindsay says

    I think my favorite would be a toss up between mint chocolate chip and coconut (but my store never has those flavors)!

  5. Rebecca says

    Yum, I’m going to have to try these! I’d pick either caramel or raspberry…depends if I’m feeling fruity!

  6. Melissa says

    I am a sucker for anything labeled “peanut butter cup” so that’s the first flavor I would try.

  7. Debbie d says

    Pb cup. But I also want to try mango and sea salt caramel. …so winning 3 boxes would be perfect !

  8. Kelsey says

    I would try the mint chocolate chip, sea salted caramel, and peanut butter cup 😀 Thanks for hosting an awesome giveaway!

  9. Morgan says

    My husband and I LOVE Yasso!

    They are the ONLY dessert he will eat (I know, so sad) 😉

    My personal fave is the salted caramel but he loves the mint chocolate chip.

  10. Gila says

    Yumm! Sea salt caramel and peanut butter cup sounds incredible. Really though I would love to try any of them!

  11. Sassypants says

    I am in love with all things coconut, so I’d have to pick that one. Although sea salt caramel sounds pretty darn delicious

  12. Laura E. says

    I’d love to try the Mint Chocolate Chip if I can find it near me! Right now I have Dark Chocolate Fudge in my freezer!

  13. says

    I want to find the PB cup (I haven’t seen them in a store yet), but the raspberry with chocolate ones are really good too!

  14. Tammy says

    Yum! Salted Caramel or Mango would be first choices, but they all look amazing! FroYo is a VERY big deal in our house!

  15. Paula says

    I was super pumped when I saw these in my horribly-stocked Publix! I have tried and adored the salted caramel; I’d really like to find the coconut!

  16. says

    I’d love to win this Yasso Giveaway! To answer the Giveaway Question:
    My first Yasso flavor that I’d purchase (of the 3) is the Raspberry Chocolate! (The other two: Mint Chocolate and Mango <– So Summery sounding!)
    I hope I win!

  17. says

    Love the strawberry and vanilla bean, but wouldn’t mind trying the sea salt caramel!!! Very nice to see SR on the blog again!!!

  18. says

    Ya know, I would normally say sea salt caramel buuuuttt I have been stuffing my face with sea salt caramels from Whole Foods for the past few days so if all of those flavors were in front of me right now I would definitely go with MANGO! (said in voice of Chris Kattan from SNL. Hopefully someone gets that reference…)

  19. Karen f says

    Chocolate mint. Duh.
    Super mad I just got back from the store. These need my mouth. Guess I’ll have to schlep down again today in appease mi body.

  20. Suzanne says

    Sea Salt Caramel with Chocolate Fudge as a close second. I had no idea they had such great flavors–I will definitely be going out an getting some!

  21. Diane says

    At first, I thought for sure Mint Chocolate Chip…. then I saw Peanut Butter Cup. Sorry MCC, you’re runner up.

  22. Kristin W says

    Yes, I am entering this contest. Even though I am trying to give up dairy in my life because I feel so much better when I don’t eat it. But some things are worth feeling bad for and sea salt caramel froyo is probably on my list. That is all.

  23. Desiree says

    My first flavor of choice would definitely be the Mint Chocolate! I LOVE Mint Chocolate! I even have the Mint Chocolate flavored gum! lol

  24. Julie says

    I’ve had the Dark Chocolate Raspberry and it’s amazing, but I want to try the PB Cup! I can’t find it in any local stores yet :(

  25. says

    I died a little when I saw there was salted caramel. That is by far my favorite ice cream and gu (not together but that could be delicious!) flavors! I just bought a pint from whole foods last night and it will be my dinner after I knock out 7 miles tonight in this wretched heat and humidity.

  26. Kaitlin says

    Dark chocolate raspberry sounds amazing! I would have come to a fun Yasso party if I didn’t live miles away!

  27. Jenn says

    My CURRENT favorite is coconut, but my store just got mint chocolate chip and salted caramel. I have a feeling that one of those two might just take first prize!

  28. Cindy says

    Sea Salt Caramel would be my #1 choice. For whatever it’s worth, coupons #2 and #3 would be redeemed for PB Cup and Vanilla Bean and taken directly to the local orphanidge. Did I mention it’s 125-degrees in AZ? Thank you Monican.

  29. Deb says

    Oh Yea!!! I’m thinking Mint Chocolate Chip for my first choice, and Sea Salt Caramel 2nd. Om Nom Nom Nom …. 😉

  30. Lea J. says

    I’d have to get two boxes because I wouldn’t be able to decide between the sea salt caramel or peanut butter cup.

  31. Laura says

    I just tried the sea salt caramel and it was amazing — I really want to try dark chocolate raspberry .
