Cool Factors: South Florida's newest food truck, Joji Yogurt, has its fans mesmerized with a tricked out, glow-in-the-dark self-serve yogurt truck. The truck, owned by Betty Stendik and Ivan Breger, dishes out fat-free yogurt and sorbet and always has offers a sugar-free option. The truck uses real, fat-free yogurt and fat-free milk for their products unlike many competitors who opt for using powdered yogurt. Joji's most popular flavor is the signature purple Orchid Vanilla Almond yogurt.
Top your sweet treat with over 28 creative toppings including wasabi pea dust, Pop Rocks, macaroon crunch and chocolate-covered sunflower seeds. If you're looking for a fat-full option, Joji pops may be more your speed. These uniquely flavored pops made with frozen yogurt and cake have a special surprise inside -- a chocolate Joji girl. Pop flavors include pancakes and bacon, German chocolate cake, and Key Lime pie.
Catch 'Em Here: The Joji Yogurt truck is at the Cleveland Clinic Farmer's Market in Weston every Thursday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., July 15 Food Truck Wars in Altamonte Springs (in case you are in central Florida this weekend), Margate Gourmet Food Truck Expo July 21, and the Florida Tattoo Expo at the Coral Springs Marriott August 10-12.
Cool Factors: Refreshing flavors like a tamarind-spiked Arnold Palmer, chocolate-banana sea salt, and the popular strawberry mojito (see the 1 minute how -to video above) is the hallmark of Feverish. The Miami-based, social media-savvy company reaches out to loyal followers to find out what flavors they crave. Feverish also custom-creates flavors for special events and weddings like their Mango Bourbon pop which they created for a Maker's Mark event (surely my invitation was lost in the mail).
Feverish skips the high-fructose corn syrup and artificial colors, opting instead for locally grown natural and organic ingredients. Unlike mass-produced pops, which sometimes contain gelatin, Feverish pops are vegan-friendly and use agave or cane sugar to sweeten their cool confections.
In addition to being creative, Feverish is also socially responsible. For each popsicle they sell, a portion is donated to charity -- to a youth entrepreneurship program that helps kids sell ice cream pops and popsicles, thus reducing the high youth unemployment rate in Broward county.
Catch 'em Here: The Feverish team is up to its eyeballs in private events but you can still get your hands on these tasty pops by visiting the local stores and carts that carry their foods.
