Back in the day, when you saw a cone, you would scream for ice cream. And if you would scream, I would scream. And then, before you knew it, we would all be screaming. Today, it isn't that easy finding ice cream in Santa Barbara. You might need to settle for frozen yogurt, the biggest trend to come along since mini-cupcakes. Actually, if you recall, this is the second coming of this cultured frozen dessert. Back in the late eighties, stores like Penguins lined State Street, selling a similar product.
Back in the eighties, certain Penguins stores were identified as stores that generated the most dollars per square foot. Is it an apple to green tea comparison to wonder how Pinkberry compares today?
The cone showed in yesterday's March Edness picture is upside down, and it does not hold ice cream or frozen yogurt. It's part of the old Victorian building at the busy intersection of Haley and Chapala. There used to be a baseball card shop there ? the first time frozen yogurt was popular.
Identifying the location of the roof earned contestants three March Edness points.
