One is opening on my block and I would hope it is healthy......

    I've only tried three of those frozen yogurt places -- Red Mango, Pinkberry and Crazy Bananas. Red Mango tastes the best, IMO. Apparently, it seems that other people would disagree as Pinkberry is always so crowded. But I think that comes from marketing more than anything else.

      Only tried it once, but I liked it--creamy and tart. Give it a try. Agree w/Miss Needle that it's better (much better) than Pinkberry.

        Thank you. I heard it has less sugar than Pinkberry.

          For me the big difference was in texture--Pinkberry is icy.

        I haven't been to any of the other yogurt places aside from RM but I do like it a lot. Just the right combo of sweet and sour. I'd stay away from the shakes because the flavor seemed a little muted for some reason when I got one. Otherwise, it's great!

          Taboo, if you're really interested in frozen yogurt, check out this recent thread.

            Red Mango might be my fave of these places now, though Yolato is close... also really like ks cause it's healthier-less sugar, so tastes it. I have been a Pinkberry fan, but those days seem to be fadin g;-) i do like their green tea flavor alot, but like Red Mango's better.

              I don't know if it's healthy, but it's the best-tasting of the bunch. Creamy and very yoghurt-y. Much better than pinkberry or yolato or yogo monster.

                Thank you so much everyone. As soon as it opens, I will give it a try and let you know my thoughts....

                I love Red Mango! The plain if great. Creamy, not too tart. A great treat. I usually hate frozen yogurt, either it is too sweet, grainy tasting or has a too fake tartness. This is perfect. You are lucky they are opening on your block. Well maybe not your wallet. It isn't cheap...
