"If you love frozen yogurt, you're going to love our new Silk Vanilla Almond Fro-Yo. Regardless of any dietary constraints, we want all of our customers to enjoy a classic vanilla frozen yogurt, without sacrificing on taste," says Dustin Finkel, Vice President of Marketing & Strategy at Famous Brands International.

The dairy-free Silk Vanilla Almond Fro-Yo will be launching in stores in January. Select stores will offer double the plant-based flavors with the previously released Silk Chocolate Almond, which just earned a Libby Award from PETA for Best Vegan Dessert in 2013.  TCBY's exclusive partnership with Silk has allowed more consumers to enjoy frozen yogurt than ever by offering dairy-free alternatives.

According to Silk, working with TCBY™ is part of their overarching goal to create accessibility to all kinds of foods, treats, and indulgences for those with dietary restrictions. "Sometimes having a restricted diet can feel like a daily exercise of little sacrifices and amended cravings," says Craig Shiesley, Senior Vice President, Plant-Based Food and Beverages. "It makes us happy to know that consumers can enjoy a dairy-free treat at TCBY to further fuel the passion for plant-based foods."

Since introducing their first dairy-free Fro-Yo, TCBY™ has received an overwhelming number of heartfelt emails from moms. "For the first time, moms can bring their entire family, regardless of dairy allergies, to TCBY for a delicious treat," adds Finkel. "Those types of comments always get us."
