Ice Tango-Scottsdale

  • c
  • 2

After reading about Ice Tango in the "Pinkberry" thread, I was eager to give it a shot, as I love frozen yogurt in all its shapes and sizes, and am somewhat intrigued by the Pinkberry obsession running rampant throughout NY and the LA area. I tried both the Twangy and Mango flavors (they also had blueberry and maybe one or two others). The Twangy was delicious, but I went with the Mango, as I thought it was even better, tasting quite similar to the Twangy, just with the additional fruitiness of the mango. Extensive toppings include primarily various fruits, mochi, and sweeter toppings (candy, cereal, etc.). I went with some kiwi and raspberries--both seemed very fresh.

The yogurt is really great, sweet (but not overpoweringly so), tangy, light, and of a nice consistency somewhere between frozen yogurt and sorbet. I went with a medium, which is quite large, and was finished with it within about 5 minutes, and could have easily gone for another. Delicious stuff. It should especially be great when the heat rolls around, with a fruity, light alternative to standard frozen yogurt and ice cream/gelato. I'm not exactly a korean yogurt connoisseur, so I can't make comparissons, but judging from other posts, it sounds like it can definitely hold its own.

Note: They also serve frozen custard, lunch/dinner crepes, and sweet crepes; I won't rehash the rest from the "Pinkberry" thread, but thought it deserved it's own topic.

  1. Thanks for the review. I really need to stop over there and try it.

    1. I'm a big fan of this place as well. I usually stop by at least once a week. I also really like the twangy (plain) with pomegranate seeds. I'm heading out to California this week and read that there's a Pinkberry about a mile away from where we're staying on Wednesday. I'm definitely going to have to check it out--just for a comparison. Can't imagine it being much better, and it only comes in plain and green tea flavors (ok, so green tea sounds pretty good, too). I'll let everyone know my verdict!!
