Red Mango Switches to Self Serve in Food Gallery 32
Good news for Red Mango fans! The K-town outpost located inside Food Gallery 32 is now open for business. However, this Red Mango represents a complete shift from the traditional fro-yo format and pricing program, going the DIY/pay what it weighs route instead. Customers choose a cup size and pull their own fro-yo from an impressive line-up of flavors. They’ve kept their original formula on hand, but have added pomegranate, dulce de leche, black cherry, vanilla, melon, lemon, and pineapple flavors, and hinted at additional varieties coming soon.
The toppings are now located at a self-serve fixings bar, which is good news for people (like myself) that yearn for an extra heavy sprinkle of mochi or strawberries, without having to fork over additional cash for an extra dose of toppings. Finally, proceed to the Red Mango checkout counter (which is separate from Food Gallery’s main registers) and pay $.49 per ounce of pro-biotic goodness.
Not sure if they plan to roll this out at all the Red Mango locations, but the variety of yogurt flavors and the ability to freely express yourself with the toppings make this a winner in my book. Finally, the $.49/oz price is more than fair – my mochi and fruit loaded creation pictured above? About 3 bucks and change.
