Thumbs up toUtopia Froyo

While attending “Eat with the Heat” on August 6 (a wonderful event), I enjoyed a complimentary frozen yogurt from the Utopia food truck. This company surely served hundreds of attendees a free yogurt. Very tasty, and I was impressed that this local eatery donated their treats and their time. I will now be checking out their breakfast sandwich and specialty coffee menu!
