To celebrate the delectable pairing, TCBY will host an online contest to find America's sweetest couple. From now until April 20, 2014, soon-to-be-betrothed couples can enter to win a Mrs. Fields and TCBY dessert bar at their upcoming wedding reception or engagement party. During the nine-week campaign, followers on TCBY's Facebook page will participate in the unfolding courtship between cartoon yogurts and toppings while they are encouraged to submit for, or nominate, real-life sweetest couples.

Mrs. Fields, America's most beloved cookie, and TCBY, the first and largest frozen yogurt brand, came under the same umbrella company in 2000.  This is the first time the two brands are combining their talents with TCBY treats that showcase the harmonious pairing.
