Red Mango date, anyone?

11 June 2012

You know I absolutely love desserts and you know I love lemons, so when I learned that one of my favorite dessert go-to places Red Mango released the new Yuzu Lemon-flavored fro-yo, well, let's just say I went a little bit crazy rushing to the nearest branch (TriNoma) to try it out.

Crunchy Lemon Craze

A medium cup costs P170.
What’s a Yuzu? “Yuzu is actually a Japanese citrus fruit that tastes like a milder more delicate version of the regular Meyer lemon,” explains Red Mango president, Sherika Tanmantiong. “We’re excited to reveal our Yuzu Lemon frozen yogurt because it’s a flavor that’s sure to tickle the taste buds and bring refreshment for what will be a very hot summer here in the Philippines.” And she's right. I love the Original flavor's sweet and tangy taste, but the Yuzu Lemon flavor has that added kick that makes a cup more indulgent. I know some people go for frappes to beat the heat, but I will always choose fro-yo over frozen coffee because [for me at least] it is yummier and healthier!

This new flavor was actually released last month but forgive me for sharing it with you guys just now. Anyway, I just wanted to say that I think it's great that Red Mango continuously thinks of new and exciting flavors so we can have more options to choose from! I personally love this fro-yo place so much that I make sure I treat myself at least once a week :)

My favorite combination:
Yuzu Lemon Swirl topped with Mandarin oranges, pineapples, and grapes
I like both Yuzu Lemon and Original flavors and it's so difficult sometimes to choose which one to get, that's why I LOVE that Red Mango came up with Yuzu Lemon Swirl which is a combination of the two. Now I get the best of both worlds! And yes, you can see above that I like fruits on my fro-yo. Sometimes I also get dezato mochi balls.

I have no problems with eating out alone; I can spend a few quiet moments at Red Mango with just a good book for company to relax and recharge, but there will always be times when I prefer to have other people with me. On that note, yes, IT'S TIME FOR A GIVEAWAY!

I have Red Mango gift certificates to spend, and I'd love to spend it with YOU!
I think it would be lovely to have a get-together with three of my readers and spend an afternoon just talking about different things and bond over delicious fro-yo. We will be going with Kira and the winners of her giveaway that she's also currently holding on her blog so we will be a big group!
