Fro-yo girl here. Yogurtland launched its new Hope promotion today. The Hope promotion which runs from August 7 to October 1, features five new handcrafted flavors, two new limited edition spoons, limited edition cups, and new toppings. During the promotional period, Yogurtland will also collect donations for three charities that it supports, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, Exodus Cry and Rescuing Lives.
During my visit, I spotted two new flavors, Banana Toffee Pie and Lava Cake Gelato, a new topping (Coconut Caramel Cookies), two new spoons, and the Hope cups. The new 3D spoons are nice and hefty. It’s cute how the Yogurtland symbol has been incorporated into flower designs.
New flavors (and release dates):
- Blissful Banana Toffee Pie (8/7): This lowfat flavor is made with real banana and graham crackers. It’s inspired by Banoffee Pie from England. Bananas are my least favorite food in the world, so while I tried this flavor, I can’t say much about it other than the warm toffee is a nice edition. Recommended toppings: almonds, whipped cream, toffee bits.
- Molten Lava Cake Gelato (8/7): This cultured gelato flavor is inspired by the French soufflé and made with two different cocoas and shortbread cookies. It’s rich and has a cake flavor that chocolate lovers will appreciate. Recommended toppings: whipped cream, chocolate shell, coconut caramel cookies.
- Spicy Sweet Chili Mango Sorbet (8/21)
- Simply Sublime Pear Tart (9/4)
- Perfectly Roasted Pistachio Almond (9/18)
- Chocolate covered sunflower seeds
- Coconut Caramel Cookies
- Pink flowerpot
- Yellow sunflower
- Hope Cup
- Donation Cup
You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
Here’s the official press release from Yogurtland:
