Fro-yo seller sees red

November 14, 2008

Red Mango, one of the new generation of hip frozen yogurt chains cropping up on the U.S. coasts, is seeing red and offering a new pomegranate flavor from POM, the juice maker, starting today and available for a limited time of currently unknown duration.

While many knock-off frozen yogurt joints have multiple flavors, Red Mango and rival Pinkberry are keeping it simple with just three. Both companies offer plain and green tea flavors. The third flavor choice at Pinkberry is coffee.

What’s your flavor?

LJ – you’re misinformed. Pinkberry copied Red Mango (Red Mango was around way before Pinkberry). Also Red Mango announced their pomegranate flavor first, and then Pinkberry copied (again!). Get your facts straight!

Cats, Cats, cool out. (pun intended)

They all copied Yogen Fruz…they’ve been around for 23 years spinning up customized natural flavors of FroYo. The blend it concept gives you anything you want.

They’ll be open somewhere near you soon. Household name in Canada, and 19 other countries. Worth the time to taste.
