New Flavors Arrive at Menchie’s Inspired by The Angry Birds Movie

Fro-yo girl here. Happy National Orange Juice Day 2016! It also seems like the perfect day to talk about the new Menchie’s flavor that I just tried, Freshly Squeezed Orange Sorbet. It’s part of the new Angry Birds Movie promotion at Menchie’s.

Finding the two newest flavors, Strawberry Smoothie Sorbet and Freshly Squeezed Orange Sorbet, in my area hasn’t been easy. Several locations are waiting for other flavors to run out before offering the new flavors. And the Menchie’s app doesn’t have a flavor finder nor do those locations regularly update their Facebook page. Sigh.

The Freshly Squeezed Orange Sorbet tastes like orange juice concentrate – the orange flavor is quite intense. Yogurt would mellow out the flavor (everything’s better with yogurt).

Recommended toppings: Whipped topping, strawberries, white chocolate chips

I haven’t seen the two new Angry Birds cup designs yet but I did get some Angry Birds stickers. The Menchie’s that I visited had Angry Birds gummy toppings. The employee had a Red (the bird) t-shirt on.

Two new flavors will be introduced during the promotion, fresh lime sorbet and strawberry greek during June. Birds seem to prefer sorbet.

The new spoons should start arriving on May 15th with five Angry Birds represented.

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