Red Mango

July 20, 2010 at 7:54 pm 3 comments

Red Mango is the latest frozen yogurt franchise to hit the Kansas City market. Started in South Korea in 2002, its first U.S. location was in 2007, in Los Angeles. It has expanded rapidly and is now in 24 states. Red Mango’s concept is similar to Moshi Yo‘s in Leawood, both featuring tart Korean frozen yogurt with probiotics and all natural ingredients to promote a healthy immune system.

If you’re looking for typical ice cream flavors like chocolate and pralines ‘n cream, go find a Baskins & Robbins. At Red Mango you’ll find pomegranate by POM, Tangomonium, Madagascar Vanilla and Original. All nonfat, 30 calories an ounce.

Red Mango is do-it-yourself. Grab a cup (big and bigger), fill it up at one of the self-serve machines and then add toppings, which include cut up fruit and berries and well as less healthy choices such as cereal, nuts and chocolate. At 39 cents an ounce, the tab can add up in a hurry, but at least you can feel good about your splurge.

Red Mango’s first Kansas City location is inside a UMKC dorm, which would seem to be a smart move. And it’s close to where I live, so I’ve already signed up for a Red Mango Club card.

    I’ve been to quite a few do-it-yourself yogurt shops but haven’t made it to a red mango yet. The flavors sound awesome! Can’t wait to visit one.

    I liked Peachwave and Mochi-Yo in JoCo, but too far for me to drive 😦 I thought that the old Yummo’s was kind of nasty and Red Mango was just okay. We finally got a good fro-yo place on the MO side. You should check out Yogurtini that just opened at Zona Rosa! It is amazing! Picked up a flyer that says they are having their grand opening this Fri (7.30.10) and giving away FREE yogurt from 4-8. The owner says Plaza library location (between Chipotle and Mixx) will open in mid-Aug.

    Love your blog, Mary!

      Thanks, Jean. I had heard Yogurtini was moving to the Plaza soon and am anxious to check it out. It’s not as healthful as Mochi-Yo and Red Mango, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be tasty!
