Red Mango - Chain Frozen Yogurt Store in the States

Red Mango

3000 184th St SW, Lynnwood

Red Mango (Lynnwood) on Urbanspoon

Food: 3
Price: Fair


M and I ate way too much high calorie food during our weekend getaway down in the States. So when G suggested we get some frozen yogurt as dessert, we happily complied.

Red Mango is your typical frozen yogurt shop. You have a choice of either original or fruit flavored frozen yogurt with an abundant choices of toppings ranging from fruits to nuts and the occasional unique toppings (mochi). For this location they had original, tangomonium and pomegranate yogurt flavors. G got the medium original with no toppings for around $4.50. M and I both got a small one with unlimited topping option, I got the pomegranate and M had the tangomonium. A small one cost some where around $3.50, with $0.50 for each additional topping. However with just $1 more, you get unlimited topping which work out to be a much better deal. Their frozen yogurt is more creamy and less tart than Qoola and Scoop!. The fruity taste in their yogurt is very light, I couldn't barely tell with the pomegranate, but could taste it a bit more in the tangomonium. Their fruit toppings are relatively fresh, with the blueberries being my favorite.I don't know if all Red Mango location have bonus question, but this one did. If you get it right, they will give you 10% off. If you didn't already know, the answer is 'dental anxiety'. Oops, I mean it's 'fear of teeth'. :P

Overall, the frozen yogurt at Red Mango was certainly not bad, but it's also not my favorite either. Consider this is only available in the States, I will definitely only go if it's convenient to do so. If you want some good frozen yogurt right here in Vancouver, definitely give both Qoola or Scoop! a try.

  3. Tia: actually I was in the States 2 weekends ago, and I got a few good deals. Bellingham, I don't really know, for Lynnwood, all we tried was this, Dick's burger and Sul Lung Tang (very authentic, so my friends tell me). That's about all I know :)

    Anon: Thanks, changed my post ;)
