Red Mango, Emeryville, CA
Fro-yo girl here. Emeryville finally has a frozen yogurt shop! Red Mango has returned to the Bay Area with its first self-serve fro-yo shop in Northern California. Named as the 2011 Zagat Rated #1 Frozen Yogurt and Smoothie Chain in the US, Red Mango features a creamier style of premium all natural fro-yo, spoonable smoothies and specialty drinks like Lemonade Chillers and Frozen Coffee Chillers. Their yogurt is kosher and gluten free.
The Emeryville location which opened last week at the Bay Street Shopping Center, features 10 flavors of self-serve fro-yo a day and 40 toppings, including fresh fruit (more varieties than usual), mochi, popping boba, candy, cereal, nuts, chocolate chips, coconut, and syrups. The toppings are fairly standard. You can choose a cone, fro-yo cup or parfait cup. It’s 45 cents an ounce.
Sweet fro-yo flavors are labeled as “classic.” They had some interesting tart flavors like White Peach (dense, creamy, smooth, sweet & juicy), Winter Caramel (creamy, thick, with a hint of caramel flavor) along with their creamy Original tart. The tart flavors were a bit too sweet for me but I did really like the creamy, smooth texture. I never liked the Tangomonium flavor.

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