Red Mango to Offer New Froyo Flavor and Honey Badger Don’t Care

The fast-growing Los Angeles based frozen yogurt chain, Red Mango, is offering its customers a special new flavor- Honey Badger. Don’t worry though, it’s not channeling the actual taste of a honey badger (what exactly would that be, I wonder?), but rather influenced by the name.

Red Mango is taking advantage of the ever-popular “viral video”, and has decided to promote a unique flavor based off of the 2011 hit YouTube sensation “The Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger”. If you’re unfamiliar with the video, it’s basically one man’s (Randall) take on a National Geographic-esque wildlife documentary following the life of the aforementioned badger. The flamboyant, hysterical narration really makes the video a success, which eventually launched Randall, and his badger, into a guest-spot with Wonderful Pistachios.

The new menu item is only being promoted through social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram- so you won’t see much in the way of in-store signage. At this point, you’re probably just wondering what “Honey Badger” frozen yogurt even tastes like. It’s not as crazy as it sounds- it’s non-fat frozen yogurt laced with all natural honey. So take a walk on the wild side and check it out at a Red Mango near you.

Red Mango Launches Three New Froyo Flavors: Cake Batter, Peanut Butter, and Sugarcane Cola

If there’s any flavor that can make you feel as warm inside as bacon does, it’s cake batter. Frozen yogurt giant Red Mango hopes everyone shares that same cake-loving sentiment in their latest release, with the release of an Old Fashioned Cake Batter frozen yogurt flavor.

In case you don’t swoon at the thought of being able to drown your taste buds in cake batter at the cost of 0-grams of fat, Red Mango also plans to launch Sugarcane Cola and Peanut Butter flavors in the coming weeks as well.

Old Fashioned Cake Batter, along with the three new flavors coming to local Red Mango stores, all boast the same all-natural, non-fat and gluten-free properties of the brand’s other products.

Red Mango FroYo to be Served at Mizzou Athletics Training Complex

Earlier this year, Red Mango celebrated the grand opening of its 100th U.S. location in Columbia, Mo. Along with the brand’s continual expansion, they’ve found some rather interesting partnerships that were once only acknowledged by top-tier drink brands — serving in student-athlete dining halls. The latest installation? The Sells Family Dining Hall at the Mizzou Athletics Training Complex at the University of Missouri.

This marks the second agreement of this kind for Red Mango and an NCAA Division 1-A athletic program, providing signature smoothies to student athletes, capitalizing on the idea that athletes and frozen yogurt/smoothies are a natural fit.

The University of Missouri Athletic Department has 20 sports and competes in the Big 12 conference. Dan Kim, the company’s founder and chief concept officer explains, “Because of their intense, competitive lifestyle, they [student-athletes] can enjoy the health benefits our yogurt provides in a refreshing format.”

College students, do you want Red Mango in your dining halls? Or can you live with your current frozen yogurt options on or around your campus?
