Free Red Mango Pomegranate Fro-Yo Today at 4 PM

Fro-yo girl here. I’m excited that pomegranate is now the new “in” tart fro-yo flavor with Red Mango officially launching its new Pomegranate by POM Wonderful flavor today (free small pomegranate fro-yo to the first 100 customers starting at 4 PM). Pomegranate tart happens to be one of my favorite tart fro-yo flavors (tied with mango tart). You can see that I was excited by the return of pomegranate seeds just a few weeks ago.

November also happens to National Pomegranate Month and Red Mango is beating Pinkberry/Stinkberry to the punch (Pinkberry will introduce its pomegranate fro-yo next week according to NYMag - but I've seen reports that it is already available at some locations). The partnership with POM Wonderful is also a smart idea. POM Wonderful is a premium, all natural juice and Red Mango also positions itself as premium and all natural. It’s taken SO long for Red Mango to come out with a new flavor that I think they’re going to see a huge response. Also, their Pomegranate fro-yo is there for a limited time.

I’m confident that Red Mango’s pomegranate fro-yo will be much better than Stinkberry’s. I’ll review their pomegranate fro-yo later today.

Update: It's tasty (the RM pomegranate fro-yo). Of course it tastes like pomegranate since it's flavored with 100% pomegranate juice concentrate (from POM Wonderful) but they also add quite a bit of sugar so that the end result isn't sour at all but is tangy and extremely creamy. I personally like the tartness of pomegranates so I'd prefer the flavor to have less sugar, but Red Mango has sweeter fro-yo so the flavor they introduced meets my expectations.

You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.

That's interesting. NYMag must have their facts wrong. They said Pinkberry would introduce the pom flavor on Nov. 21 - maybe it introduced it early at certain locations?
