Yogurtland’s Flavor Quest Introduces Horchata Froyo on Cinco de Mayo

Fro-yo girl here. Happy Cinco de Mayo, froyo fans! I remember celebrating last Cinco de Mayo (2015) with Pinkberry’s new Cinnamon Churro froyo.

This year Yogurtland has timed the release of its newest Flavor Quest flavor with Cinco de Mayo. It’s Horchata frozen yogurt and it’s made with real cinnamon and almonds. Yogurtland describes Horchata froyo as: “Meet Mexico’s most adored traditional beverage. With real cinnamon and almonds, this creamy treat is an authentic spoonful of the deliciously sweet Mexican rice drink.”

The non-fat Horchata flavor is creamy and smooth and it does seem quite sweet. The cinnamon flavor is noticeable but not overpowering. The dairy flavor is the strongest flavor component and there’s even a cream like finish that’s indulgent and yummy. The almonds tasted like coconut for some reason. The flavor was nice but didn’t have the strong rice-cinnamon flavor that I expected. Maybe it’s because of the almonds? Horchata is usually made with rice and no almonds.

Suggested toppings: Shortbread fingers, whipped cream, almonds

There was a new topping today: Mini shortbread cookies. These cookies are extra crunchy and didn’t become soggy despite being in contact with frozen yogurt. Yum.

Every Thursday will feature a new froyo flavor. The flavor will run for two weeks or while supplies last. Dulce de Leche Cookies didn’t last long at my Yogurtland.
