It’s not just Frozen Yogurt – Smoothies at Red Mango
Posted by Jeanne on July 15, 2013
This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Red Mango. All opinions are 100% mine.
So I get contacted by a lot of PR people asking me to write sponsored posts. Most of the time I ignore them, because I am lazy and also because they want me to publish recipes I haven’t written accompanied by photoes I haven’t taken to promote whatever. Also, sometimes their products are affiliated with celebrity chefs that I didn’t really like on Top Chef. But occasionally someone emails me with an offer I really don’t want to refuse.
This would be one of those times. Who says no when Red Mango asks them to write a sponsored post? Not me. And here we are. Thankfully, I already love Red Mango and was happy to get some testers for their new smoothies (twist my arm).
There are 22 smoothies in four categories:
- Body Balance: Flavorful and functional yogurt smoothies formulated with beneficial boosts
- All Fruit Harmony: Refreshing dairy-free and soy-free smoothies made only with fruit, juice and ice.
- Twisted Fruits: Smooth and creamy signature yogurt smoothies offered in new and innovative fruit-forward flavors.
- Just Kidd’n: Naturally delicious, snack-sized fruit and yogurt smoothies, blended just for kids.
They also have a whole bunch of smoothie boosts that you can add, for extra flavor along with antioxidants or protein.
Kate went with me and she had a peanut butter cup smoothie, which was apparently delicious and very peanut-buttery.
E had a Just Kidd’n All Star Superberries smoothie, and while I don’t love the name it was delicious.
Also, it came with a straw. Straws are the best.
I am not really what you would call a Smoothie Person so in the interest of full disclosure, I have to say that I had frozen yogurt. I did taste the child’s smoothie before she backwashed into it too much and it was tasty. My frozen yogurt with cookie dough was also delicious, though her smoothie was probably a more balanced lunch.
Also, this is a good week to go to Red Mango – every registered and opted-in CLUB MANGO member will receive double points for every eligible purchase they make in a participating Red Mango location from July 15-19, 2013. Club Mango points add up and can be redeemed for products at participating Red Mango stores. The card is free, you get a $2 reward just for signing up, and for every 500 Mango Points you earn you’ll get a $5 coupon! Which means more frozen yogurt or smoothies. Which I am way into.
