Indulge in summer's slimmest sweet treat at five tasty locales

To say Menchie’s is popular is an understatement. From Texas to Japan, the frozen yogurt shop boasts 180 stores worldwide. What do their 10,000+ Twitter followers think all the fuss is about? Could be their Smileage Club that offers one smile point for every dollar spent. Fifty smiles gets you $5 to spend. 644 Long Point Rd., Unit H-2, Mount Pleasant. (843) 654-9040,

Sweet CeCe’s
Sweet CeCe’s may be a franchise, but they’re keeping it local, spooning up fro yo that melts you into Lowcountry living with flavors like Charleston Chocolate, Rainbow Row Tart, and East Bay Vanilla. 99 South Market St. (843) 277-2108,
