DALLAS, Dec. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Red Mango, the #1 Zagat-rated frozen yogurt and smoothies chain in America, is recreating fond winter memories with its first-ever hot beverage, new Artisan Hot Chocolate in four delicious flavors debuting at locations nationwide today.
"This time of the year always reminds me of the comfort of keeping warm during the first winter snow," says Dan Kim, founder and chief concept officer for Red Mango. "Watching snowflakes fall while being surrounded by the smell of hot cocoa was the feeling I wanted to capture with our Artisan Hot Chocolate."
Kim, who is committed to reproducing distinctive seasonal experiences into new all-natural holiday treats, suggests savoring the Artisan Hot Chocolate with a dollop of whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup. The "Artisan" in the name pays tribute to the company's expertise in flavor innovation. True to the company's mission for indulging the natural and healthy way, Artisan Hot Chocolate from Red Mango combines the best of ingredients to melt away the winter chill while elevating the hot chocolate drink to a new level.
Made with all-natural chocolate and nonfat milk, and infused with Ghirardelli® premium cocoa, the velvety Artisan Hot Chocolate is the company's newest winter offering with indulgent rich chocolate swirled with any of four luxurious flavors: Double Chocolate, Raspberry Chocolate Truffle, Irish Chocolate Creme, and Chocolate Amaretto.
The Artisan Hot Chocolate collection is available for a limited time at participating locations nationwide throughout the winter season.
