Red Mango Switches to Self Serve in Food Gallery 32

Red Mango Yogurt

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.

8th Ave. Red Mango Closes: It looks like the EV isn't the only place Pinkberry is beating up on the competition.  Red Mango may have just opened a new location in Rock Center, but their original Midtown branch (on 8th Ave. btw. 45+46th) is now shuttered.  I'm guessing the Pinkberry on 9th Ave. & 43rd didn't help (although I've always preferred RM.)

Red Mango Now Open in Rock Center

Red Mango Now Open in Rock Center

I don’t know if any amount of money could get me to willingly enter the NBC Experience store inside 30 Rock, but froyo fans will be excited for this news. Red Mango has opened inside the small cafe on the second floor. So now you have two options for your Midtown Red Mango fix. Walk to the location on 8th Ave and 45th, or fight your way through hordes of tourists waiting in line for the NBC Studio Tour. Good luck and Godspeed. (Thanks to Lunch’er Lila for the tip.)

8th Ave. Red Mango Seized by City Marshal


Midtown fro-yo fans will be bummed about this one. Lunch’er “Myra” reports: “Red Mango on 8th Ave (btw. 45+46th) had a yellow Marshal’s Notice on the door, and 2 employees standing there a bit puzzled.” Confirmed by the photo above, the store was still closed as of 1:30pm (and nobody was picking up the phone as of 2:15pm.) According to one of the employees on the scene, it’s because of a dispute between the owner of Red Mango and the landlord who owns the building. He assured me they would reopen (and added “maybe even today”.) It hasn’t effected any of the other Midtown locations… the one on 3rd Ave. and 34th is still open as is the Koreatown location (who knew nothing about the problems with the 8th Ave. location.)

Update in the Comments: As of 4:30 they have reopened

A close up of the notice is after the jump…

Free Red Mango Alert: Thanks to Lunch'er Kimberly for pointing this out: There is a coupon for free Red Mango in today's Metro.  Anybody know good spots to pick up a copy of the Metro in the afternoon? The two Metro bins outside the location on 8th btw. 45+46th are empty (naturally). Apparently the coupons don't expire until May.

Free Food Alert: Red Mango in K-Town


Thanks to Danny from Food in Mouth for passing along this info and photo.  The Red Mango on 32nd btw. B’way+5th (in Koreatown) is celebrating their grand opening by giving away free yogurt until 10 p.m. tonight.  Free small with one topping (I recommend cap’n crunch.)  I would say the line may die down after lunch, but 32nd St. is ground zero for New York’s yogurt craze (New York’s first Pinkberry is half a block away) so it’s probably going to look like this for the rest of the day.

How To Defuse (or Diffuse) A Steak & Cheese Grease Bomb


A heavenly match has been created on 3rd Avenue btw. 34+35th Streets. What better way to counteract the effects of a Carl’s cheesesteak grease bomb than with Red Mango. Yes, I admit it- I like Red Mango. (Pinkberry can screw off, though.) You may say the secret ingredient is Cap’n Crunch. (Trust me, it’s freaking good.) And it has been proven in a study that yogurt cultures, mixed with peanut butter cereal, will help aid in the digestion of red meat and cheese. You can’t argue with science.*

* Not proven by any actual scientific study.

FREE FOOD ALERT: New Red Mango: This just in via Eater.  The newest branch of Red Mango has opened on 3rd Ave. btw. 34+35th and is giving away free yogurt until 10pm.  My recommendation... green tea with cap'n crunch.  Do it.  Do it.

Free Food Alert: Red Mango Opening on 45th & 8th Ave.


From Eater (via FatWallet)

Another day, another fro-yo opening, another promise of free goods. Today a Red Mango opens on 45th and 8th Ave., and promises to give away their goods from 3-10pm.

My track record with free frozen yogurt  is not that great, but this one seems legit.  A phone call to the location confirmed that the new Red Mango will be giving away the small size frozen yogurt with one topping.  723 8th Ave. (btw. 45+46th).  Enjoy!

Update:  It’s pretty cold out for fro-yo, but it was free so how could I resist.  See what ”free” should really get you, after the jump…
