Froglanders celebrates 25 years of happiness


By Marti Gacioch

For Froglanders Frozen Yogurt owner, Dinyar Khosraviani, his business is all about happiness.

“Only happy people come here,” Khosraviani said. “Everyone has a smile.”

Experiencing the joy of yogurt is now possible at a discount! To celebrate its 25th anniversary, Froglanders is offering a “Buy one yogurt, get a second at 50 percent off” coupon in the La Jolla Light.

In 2010, Khosraviani, left the chill of Canada for the warmth of La Jolla and the opportunity to purchase one of La Jolla’s longtime taste treat shops. Khosraviani managed a Canadian Shell gas station for 15 years, when he decided to move to La Jolla for the weather. But retirement was far from his mind.

“At 59, I didn’t want to retire and this was within my budget to purchase; it was a proven success for 25 years, and it’s family oriented,” Khosraviani said. “It’s fun and light-hearted for both young and old; I have people who’ve been coming here for 15 or 20 years.”

Located near both high school and elementary schools, Froglanders is a popular stop for La Jolla students, who receive 25 percent off their purchases.

Froglanders is a full-serve shop offering eight yogurt flavors daily. Everyday flavors include Vanilla, Chocolate, Peanut Butter, and Original Tart. Exotic flavors include Kona Coffee, Rocky Road, S’mores, Mint Grasshopper, Strawberry Field and Angel Food Cake.

Yogurt is available in containers ranging from 5 ounces to 32 ounces. Froglanders offers low-cal yogurt (15 calories per ounce), sugar-free yogurt (12 calories per ounce) and non-fat yogurt (25 calories per ounce).

Froglanders also offers smoothies, shakes, acai bowls, yogurt pies, sodas and juices.
