DALLAS, July 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Red Mango, America's 2011 #1 Zagat-rated frozen yogurt and smoothies chain, is making "some little coffee bean's dream come true." That's the message adorning Red Mango store windows across the country in what the company considers one of its biggest product introductions: the debut of its first coffee-based beverage – the signature all-natural and nonfat Frozen Coffee Chillers – now available nationwide at participating locations.
"Today's unhealthy frappes have finally met their match," says Dan Kim, founder and chief concept officer of Red Mango. "Caffeine fans across America can now enjoy the best tasting coffee combined with our award-winning yogurt in an all-natural, nonfat frozen beverage that's satisfying, refreshing and energizing."
To add additional buzz to this rollout, participating Red Mango locations will offer their customers a regular size 16-ounce Frozen Coffee Chiller for just $1 (plus tax). This offer will be available only from July 23 to July 31 from store opening until 5pm each day.
Available in Vanilla, Caramel, Mocha and Natural Coffee, the Frozen Coffee Chillers blend authentic medium-roast Columbian Arabica coffee with all-natural nonfat Red Mango yogurt and crushed ice for a delicious and uplifting frozen beverage. Following the company's industry-leading mission to offer the healthiest and best tasting menu, each Frozen Coffee Chiller also contains live and active probiotic cultures that help support the immune system when consumed as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. Regular size 16-ounce servings contain just 290 to 320 calories, and large size 20-ounce servings contain 320 to 390 calories.
"It's one of my most favorite creations," Kim says of his culinary quest to give coffee lovers and frozen yogurt fans the best of both worlds. "It truly is a superior alternative to many of today's frozen coffee frappes that are made with unhealthy ingredients and don't offer any nutritional benefits. Coffee lovers like me who also care about their health will love my Frozen Coffee Chillers."
