Yogurtland & Nintendo Game On Launch Party, New Flavors

Fro-yo girl here. The newest Yogurtland promotion, Yogurtland & Nintendo Game On, started today. I don’t play Nintendo games like Mario Kart 7 and New Super Mario Bros. 2, but I’m still excited about the new Nintendo character spoons and flavors. Nintendo is promoting its 3DS games for their hand-held systems and reaching families in a new way.

Yogurtland CSUF (the first Yogurtland location, by Cal State Fullerton) had a launch party today with photo opps, free froyo for the first 50 guests and a prize wheel (customers can spin the wheel all day today). Yogurtland associates had red Nintendo t-shirts and hats. There wasn’t any Yogurtland/Nintendo merchandise for sale.

There are ten Nintendo inspired flavors during the promotion, with release dates indicated.

  • Mario’s Chocolate Gelato (July 1): “What better way for Mario to fuel up than with this decadent chocolate gelato. We combined real chocolate, rich cocoa, and a hint of vanilla for a creamy blend of chocolatey goodness.” The gelato has live and active cultures. It was creamy and rich…tasted like a fudgsicle. Recommended toppings: Cap’n Crunch or Cinnamon Toast Crunch, chocolate chips
  • Bowser’s Dragon Berry Tart (July 1): “Real dragon fruit, raspberries and blueberries come together to create a lightly tart, vitamin C packed treat. Even Bowser can’t say no to this berry refreshing flavor.” I can see why Bowser likes this flavor; it’s really fruity. Raspberries and blueberries are some of my favorite berries. You can see bits of fruit in the mix. It’s creamy, tangy and berry flavorful. Recommended toppings: Berries, blueberry puree, popping boba
  • Toad’s Rocky Road (July 8)
  • Yoshi’s Honeydew (July 15)
  • Goomba’s Iced Coffee (July 22)
  • Princess Peach Tart (July 29)
  • Donkey Kong Banana Cream (August 5)
  • Shy Guy’s Pineapple Lime Coconut Sorbet (August 12)
  • Koopa Troopa’s Lemon Cupake (August 19)
  • Luigi’s White Chocolate Pistachio (August 26)

The new cup design features five Nintendo characters that also have their own character spoons: Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Yoshi and Bowser. The first two spoons released belong to Mario (red) and Bowser (yellow). There was a new topping: red, white and blue star shaped candies called Starzmania.

Fans of Nintendo and Yogurtland can also enter a sweepstakes with cool prizes, including the Wii Usystem and one year of free frozen yogurt. Enter at By entering the contest, fans are also eligible for instant giveaways, including unlimited frozen yogurt cups, Wii U and Nintendo 3DS games, as well as shiny new Nintendo 3DS systems that come with one game.

The promotion runs from July 1 – September 8.

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