Yesterday we went on a hunt for frozen yogurt. My husband and I are really trying to cut down on our fat intake. So ice cream was out of the question. I really couldn’t remember where to find a yogurt shop, so I used Google Maps. It provided us with results for a Baskin Robbins and this place called “Red Mango.” I got really excited because I had read several reviews on Yelp and wanted to try it for myself.
The Red Mango in Palo Alto is located right on University Ave. It has a cute logo that’s hard to miss. Another way to identify it is the long line that extends down the block! The interior is very simple. They have a few tables and chairs inside and out.
What makes them unique is the simplicity. You order either an original or green tea yogurt in small, medium, or large and add toppings that you like. Some of the toppings included dark chocolate, crushed graham crackers, almonds, Fruity Pebbles, Cocoa Pebbles, Cap’n Crunch, and just about every fresh fruit you can think of. The greatest part of the experience is that it’s REAL yogurt. There are no artificial flavors or colors. And it tastes like… yogurt! There is no guilt in eating as much as you want. I typically don’t eat all of mine when I get TCBY but I devoured every last bit of this one! I can’t wait to go back.
On a side note, Red Mango is owned by Yul Kwon, the Survivor: Cook Islands winner!
