Frozen yogurt was developed in 1970 in the United States by H.P. Hood. At the time, it was called Frogurt.
Shortly after, Dannon and Humphreys began releasing their own versions. It became popular in the 1980s because it was marketed as “health food,” and soon ice cream brands began making their own as well.
The first frozen yogurt shop was launched by TCBY in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1981. Five years later, frozen yogurt annual sales had reached over $25 million. TCBY orginally stood for “That Can’t Be Yogurt,” but a lawsuit against the company forced them to change it to “The Country’s Best Yogurt.”
In 1990, frozen yogurt (or froyo, as it’s now often called) made up 10% of the frozen treats market.
The first frozen yogurt day was celebrated by TCBY on the first Sunday in June of 1993, but it was moved to February by the International Frozen Yogurt Association (which wsa founded in 2013) for unknown reasons. Many places celebrate both days.
