Yogurtland Love Follow Your Heart, New Blue Ribbon Pineapple Upside Down Cake Froyo

Fro-yo girl here. Yogurtland’s new LOVE Follow Your Heart promotion continues with a new flavor, Blue Ribbon Pineapple Upside Down Cake froyo. I’ve never had pineapple upside down cake but I normally am not a fan of cake froyo flavors (cookie froyo flavors are great though). Pineapple upside down cake features caramelized pineapple and brown sugar and is sometimes made with rum and maraschino cherries.

The Blue Ribbon part of the flavor’s name probably is a nod to the Dole pineapple recipe contest in 1925. At the time, pineapple was considered an exotic, new fruit. Of the 60,000 recipes that were entered in the contest, 2,500 were for Pineapple Upside-Down Cake. This inspired the Dole ad campaign featuring the Pineapple Upside-Down Cake in 1926. This year, National Pineapple Upside-Down Cake Day is April 20.

* Blue Ribbon Pineapple Upside-Down Cake:
It’s described as “We combine real pineapples, shortbread cookies and a rich toffee base for this sweet treat! Caramelized pineapple flavors combine with buttery cake notes for a well-balanced, fruity delight.” It tasted like pineapple but without any tanginess – because of the cake notes. The most prominent flavor was still the pineapple. The texture was smooth and creamy. The yogurt is lowfat. I wasn’t a fan; maybe the flavor was too complicated for me, but then I probably wouldn’t like pineapple upside down cake either. Recommended toppings: pineapple, coconut, almonds, Nilla wafers

The next new flavor is Spring’s Simply Sweet Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares starting May 1.

Flavors are available while supplies last.

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