Pumpkin Frozen Yogurt: Taste Like Pumpkin, Please!

Sweets Carey Jones 13 comments

Let me start by saying this: I love pumpkin-flavored anything. And I love frozen yogurt. I will happily scarf down any Red Mango or Pinkberry put in front of me. That said, I'm heartily disappointed in both the chains' seasonal pumpkin offerings. More

Thanks, But No Thanks: Pumpkin Spice Frozen Yogurt at Red Mango

New York Carey Jones 6 comments

[Photo: Carey Jones] We're huge fans of pumpkin desserts at Serious Eats, so Red Mango's seasonal Pumpkin Spice frozen yogurt sounded like a good bet. Unfortunately, however, it was a huge disappointment, tasting almost identical to Red Mango's standard... More

Sugar Rush: Pinkberry Delivery (Yay or Nay?)

New York Carey Jones 1 comment

In the ever-escalating frozen yogurt wars, Pinkberry has deployed the ultimate weapon: delivery. (Or, as they prefer, “Swirls on Wheels.”) Their Upper West Side, Midtown East, Gramercy, Chelsea, Union Square, and Village locations each deliver to a pretty generous... More

Sugar Rush: Red Mango's 'Tangomonium'

New York Carey Jones Post a comment

Yogurt shop Red Mango (like its close cousin Pinkberry) has built a business off simplicity. Tart, creamy soft-serve, fresh fruit toppings—and that’s it. So when there’s a new flavor, it’s a big deal. Red Mango started off with their... More

Blogwatch: Homemade Vietnamese Yogurt

Michele Humes 1 comment

As Pinkberry, Red Mango and a thousand imitators battle it out for yogurt supremacy, the Vietnamese have been quietly making their own addictively sharp (but non-frozen) yogurt snack, da ua, or sua chua, for decades. Diane from White on Rice Couple shows us how it's done. The secret ingredient? Sweetened condensed milk. The star player in dulce de leche mellows the tang and gives the yogurt a silky, gently set consistency. Sprinkled with in-season pomegranate seeds, as Diane serves hers, it makes an unusual alternative to the pomegranate yogurts now making the soft-serve rounds.... More

Red Mango's New Pomegranate Frozen Yogurt

Erin Zimmer 10 comments

Red Mango, the frozen yogurt chain that's not Pinkberry, just launched a pomegranate yogurt this week, adding a third flavor to the menu's "original" and "green tea." Oddly enough, Pinkberry is also introducing a pomegranate flavor next week, except it doesn't advertise the POM Wonderful juice as an ingredient, as with Red Mango's version. For me, the appeal of pomegranate is in the seeds. The crunch, the tang, the way they mysteriously dissolve in your mouth. But pomegranate-flavored yogurt? Does pomegranate even have a defined flavor? (Other than generic reddish, tartish fruit?) It's not Red Mango's fault that the yogurt isn't overwhelmingly pomegranate; I'm not sure pomegranate even knows what it should taste like. Extracting the "essence" of the... More
