DALLAS, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Red Mango, the fastest-growing retailer of all-natural nonfat frozen yogurt and fresh fruit smoothies invites America to "Cool the Mouth" and "Warm the Soul" with its new Hot Chocolate Chillers. Made with Ghirardelli® premium chocolate, Hot Chocolate Chillers are the company's newest fall and winter treat that offers the rich flavor of hot cocoa in a decadent yet healthy ice blended beverage.



"This is the time of year when people like to indulge in chocolate," says Dan Kim, founder and chief concept officer of Red Mango.  "The Hot Chocolate Chiller is a satisfyingly delicious way to enjoy the rich, creamy taste of chocolate without the excessive calories and guilt."

Made from signature recipes that blend Ghirardelli chocolate and cocoa with Red Mango's all-natural nonfat yogurt, Hot Chocolate Chillers are available in five indulgently flavorful varieties: Dark Chocolate, Dark Chocolate with Strawberries, Dark Chocolate with Banana, Dark Chocolate with Strawberries and Banana, and Peppermint Dark Chocolate. A regular 16-ounce serving is less than 300 calories, low in fat, rich in probiotics, and kosher.  Hot Chocolate Chillers are also a good source of calcium, and offer antioxidants like Vitamin A & C, and those naturally found in cocoa.

Kim calls his newest smoothie line one of the most decadent additions to the menu that is sure to please chocolate lovers and also deliver a healthy, all-natural treat this holiday season.

Hot Chocolate Chillers will be available throughout the fall and winter seasons, and will be offered by participating stores to all customers for just $1 on various dates throughout November.  As part of the company's "Chocolate for Charity" drive from November 15-30, participating stores will also donate 10% from the sales of Hot Chocolate Chillers to local charities throughout the country.
