The first flavor is free and any additional flavors are $1.49 each. This means that you can choose a flavor within these categories: Chocolatey, Sweety, Fruity, Fit & healthy (made with fat-free frozen yogurt), Cookies, Cakey, and everything Elsey. For example: from the Chocolatey category you can choose Almond Joy as your first flavor. If you choose to mix in another flavor such as Snickers it will cost you an additional $1.49.
