Yogurtland & Nintendo Game On New Flavor: Shy Guy’s Pineapple Lime Coconut Sorbet

Fro-yo girl here. The latest Nintendo inspired flavor arrives in Yogurtland stores today, Shy Guy’s Pineapple Lime Coconut Sorbet. It’s a sorbet, so it’s not as exciting as frozen yogurt but lime and coconut go well together so it seemed promising. They only have one new sorbet flavor for the Nintendo promotion, so that’s a plus (seems like they usually have more promotional sorbet flavors).

* Shy Guy’s Pineapple Lime Coconut Sorbet: According to the flavor card, “Take your taste buds on a trip to Yoshi’s Island with real pineapple, lime, and coconut water blended together to create a refreshing and light tropical sorbet.” It’s non-fat, dairy-free, vitamin C fortified and gluten free. I usually assume that the flavor that’s listed first is going to be the strongest but this wasn’t the case. The pineapple flavor was noticeable but it wasn’t strong and it didn’t add tanginess. The coconut water was what I tasted first, then the lime, and finally the pineapple. The flavor was light, sweet and refreshing – but I thought it could have been more flavorful.

Recommended toppings: Pineapple, coconut, mochi, granola

Shy Guy’s Pineapple Lime Coconut Sorbet is available while supplies last. Mark your calendar for the next new flavor, Koopa Troopa’s Lemon Cupcake on August 19th. Luigi’s spoon should be released on August 19th as well.

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