New Yasso Flavors, Review of Black Rasperry Chip Bars & Mint Sandwiches

Fro-yo girl here. Yasso recently expanded their offerings, introducing three new bar flavors: S’mores, Toffee Caramel Chocolate Chip, Black Raspberry Chip and their first froyo sandwiches, available in Mint and Vanilla.

I spotted a few of their new products at Target in Fremont, CA. That Target had all the new products except for S’mores bars. Each package was priced at $3.99. A box comes with four bars or four sandwiches.

Toffee Caramel Chocolate Chip sounds super sweet to me, so I opted for the Black Raspberry Chip bars.

* Black Raspberry Chip bars: These are froyo popsicles. The texture of the bar was creamy, soft and light. The raspberry flavor was present but not very strong. The dark and white chocolate chips were small and crunchy. The yogurt flavor was very mild. The flavor was not tangy at all but was sweeter than I expected. It’s still a nice light treat at 100 calories, 2g total fat and 14g of sugars. 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Vanilla froyo/ice cream sandwiches are commonplace, so I wanted to try the mint. Also, chocolate and mint make a good pair.

* Mint froyo sandwiches: The sandwich is small compared to the other ice cream sandwiches on the market. The dark chocolate cookie looks and tastes like a soft Oreo cookie. It’s a great cookie and it didn’t get too mushy or sticky. The layer of froyo was pretty thin. The mint flavor was natural and pleasant. The texture was smooth and creamy. The cookies complemented the froyo. One sandwich is 120 calories with 3.5g total fat and 7g of sugars. I liked my froyo sandwich more than the Black Raspberry Chip bar. 4.5 out of 5 stars.

* TARGET: Fremont Hub Shopping Center, 39201 Fremont Blvd., Fremont, CA 94538

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