Frozen Yogurt

We would like to know if you guys knew the pricing for the small, medium, and large sizes of PINKBERRY, RED MANGO, and TASTI D LITE. With or without toppings, however they price.

Thank you! :)

  1. A medium plain at Red Mango or Pinkberry with 3 toppings is about $6.50. Pinkberry definitely charges more for the flavors, not sure about Red Mango.

    I heard Red Mango has a special this month- a pumpkin flavor yogurt comes with a free graham cracker crumb topping.

      don't know about Tasti, but that stuff is nasty anyway ;

      )

      cheesecake was right about the RM special - they've got a seasonal pumpkin spice flavor that comes with a free graham cracker crumb topping. i was dying to try it until i read a bunch of negative reviews...guess i'll stick with the standard plain, green tea & pomegranate.

        ghg- that stinks! I was planning on trying for lunch tomorrow!

        and you're right about Tasti- it's nasty- and it's not lowcal at all.

        1. re: cheesecake17

          you can still try it, but you've been warned ;) seriously though, just try a sample and if it sucks you can still get one of the other flavors for lunch!

          1. re: goodhealthgourmet

            I'll prob do just that... but I get nervous asking for samples when there's a really long line at lunchtime..

            1. re: cheesecake17

              you're funny - it's not like you're asking to sample 5 different flavors with time to cleanse your palate in between! ask for a taste, i promise that the rest of us behind you in line, (who, by the way, have all asked for a sample at some point too) won't start a riot ;)

              1. re: goodhealthgourmet

                very true, but I have gotten some nasty looks from people behind me and from employees when I asked for a sample.

                oko in park slope is awesome with samples- when I couldn't decide on a topping the woman behind the counter offered me tastes of all the toppings...

                1. re: cheesecake17

                  Ignore the nasty looks. It's better to get a sample than to waste $5 on frozen yogurt. For example, I'm not glad that I ever ate a sample of Tangomonium (blech!) but it was better than buying a whole thing of it and then throwing it away.

                  Places that make good products will be happy to let you sample as long as you're not asking for 10 samples (except for Capagiro in Philly, they let you sample lots and all their flavors are phenomenal) because they stand behind their stuff.

              I got the pumpkin today- and I liked it. Not something I would get often, but it was definitely interesting.

              1. re: cheesecake17

                thanks for the input - i may have to try it now! is it good by itself *without* the graham topping (which i unfortunately can't eat)?

                1. re: goodhealthgourmet

                  I got the graham topping on the side- I thought it was better without it. The yogurt itself was sweet- and with the crumbs it was wayy too sweet for me. If you get a medium + 3 toppings, the graham is a freebie 4th. Maybe they'll sub something if you tell them you can't eat it.

                  1. re: cheesecake17

                    thanks so much for the info! i actually don't like toppings on my yogurt, i was just concerned that the graham crumbs might be an integral part of the experience - glad to hear that's not the case. i may check it out...

                    1. re: goodhealthgourmet

                      definitely try it- I went to the one on 32nd st- it was pretty empty around lunchtime

                      1. re: cheesecake17

                        thanks. my go-to was always the 6th Ave Chelsea location because i'm near there a couple of times a week, but it's a *different* yogurt place now! boo.

                        1. re: goodhealthgourmet

                          the one across the street from pinkberry? what place is it now?

                          1. re: cheesecake17

                            there's a Stinkberry on Eighth Ave, but i don't think there's one on Sixth..? the Red Mango that changed over was on Sixth Ave between 22nd& 23rd, on the east side of the street next to "Chickpea." it's now called "Happy Cups" or something like that. apparently the proprietors of that Red Mango location didn't want to deal with the franchising anymore, so they went rogue! it's still yogurt, and they still have plain tart, green tea, etc, but they added more flavors too. i was so confused the first (and only) time i stopped by after it changed.

                            1. re: goodhealthgourmet

                              I thought there was a Pinkberry near Union Square?

                              There's a lot of tart yogurt places popping up now... but I don't think they're all real yogurt..

                              1. re: cheesecake17

                                total miscommunication - there is one in USQ (Sixth Ave b/w 13th & 14th), but i thought you were saying there was one on Sixth Ave in Chelsea.

                                personally i can't stand Stinkberry. Red Mango was always my favorite (and it also happens to be the *original* one from Korea, Pinkberry just cornered the US market first)...but Miss Needle also turned me on to Berrywild - their yogurt is actually excellent, and it's real yogurt.

                                1. re: goodhealthgourmet

                                  Where's Berrywild? I've never heard of it..

                                    i hate to say it, but the Plain Smooth is even better than Red Mango!

                                    1. re: goodhealthgourmet

                                      Now I know what you're talking about- my whole office calls it "wildberry!"

          2. re: goodhealthgourmet

            I tried a sample of the pumpkin w/graham cracker @ Red Mango and it was really gross, and I love their original flavor and I love all things pumpkin! The tart yogurt with the creamy pumpkin flavor just does not mesh. Stick with the original and you'll be fine. You can also get one of their loyalty cards and it ends up saving you some money, though I don't know how much, just make sure they swipe it before you pay (they can't do anything for you after they've accepted your card or cash).
