Red Ma”no”go

You all know our love of Pinkberry. Before Pinkberry, we weren’t big fans of frozen yogurt, considering it tasted like ice cream…and why have the “wannabe” when you could just have the original thing!

Once we’re obsessed…well you remember cupcakes. While the last place we went to couldn’t beat Pinkberry, we thought we should give “Red Mango” a try, since we heard good things about it. We went to the one in Valley Fair after we finished prom dress shopping for Arjoo (Sona’s cousin).

The atmosphere at Red Mango wasn’t appealing. While they kept it very simple, like Pinkberry…it sort of reminded us of a club because the lights were dim…not something you desire when eating frozen yogurt, which is such a summery treat…think bright, sunny…Pinkberry.

Now to the more important aspect, the taste. It was very close to Pinkberry, but not completely there. But, this is just us. We love the tarty-yogurt taste, but Red Mango was a little too sweet for us. It still had the tartness…so many of you out there might actually prefer “Red Mango” if you think Pinkberry is too tart. It was a lot more creamy than Pinkberry…a negative for us because it reminds us of ice-cream.

They also keep the fruit too cold. So we had to suffer through frozen strawberries and blackberries.

A plus-side to Red Mango…you have the option of mixing two-flavors…as you can see in the pictures! Overall we would give it 3.5 out of 5.

  1. It’s my yogurt!! There were too much chocolate chips…

  2. If you guys are fro you fans, you should try the self serve places. Similar to Pinkberry/Red Mango but you can mix whatever flavors you want and toppings and they charge by weight. It’s exciting. As for taste though, I’m not so sure.
