   Frozen yogurt is not a new idea, but the industry is booming with new takes on the cool treat. The Frosty Parrot, a frozen yogurt shop at 2779 S. Church St. in Burlington, is working to add a whole bunch of new twists with its plethora of 36 topping choices. From fresh fruit to popping sweet caviar and cheesecake bites, there is no way to go wrong with the infinite number of combinations to be made.
Flavors change often throughout the store, but Tahitian vanilla and cocoa beach chocolate are always there. Another unique aspect about this sweet spot is that there is a large chalkboard for children to draw on after the sugar rush hits and they need to let out some creative energy. The Frosty Parrot charges 45 cents an ounce, and offers discounts to service men and women, medical personnel and senior citizens, as well as offering a punch card.
So, for a create-your-own treat that will please the whole family, the Frosty Parrot is a good and affordable destination for everyone. For more information visit its Facebook page at
