Free ice cream today at Ben & Jerry's

Cinzia Barbon, who came from Italy to train workers at Yogorino Italy, fills a cup with yogurt.( Michael S. Wirtz / Staff Photographer ). 7/17/09. EDITORS NOTE: FROYO06. You've slurped ice cream, soft-serve, frozen yogurt, water ice, gelati (and gelato). Now make way for Soft Ice, a.k.a. FroYo, the soft non-diary treat that comes in Asian-inspired flavors, and is served in a cup and augmented with a elect-your-own toppings bar. The Froyo/Soft Ice wars started on the west coast have hit South Street and Rittenhouse Square. We explore the city's three new FROYO/SOFT ICE stores and see how they're different from each other and from TCBY. Reporter:
