Always on the search for geek culture colliding with food, we were told about Yogurtland’s newest summer promotion featuring Nintendo and just had to check it out! Yogurtland has taken classic characters like Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Yoshi and Bowser that star in popular Nintendo games and have adorned their walls, cups and collectible biodegradable spoons with them! Yogurtland has even created some Nintendo-inspired flavors like Mario’s Chocolate Gelato, Luigi’s White Chocolate Pistachio and Toad’s Rocky Road.
Like Nintendo, Yogurtland offers a one-of-a-kind experience, high-quality products and a universal appeal for people of all ages,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “By bringing Nintendo characters to Yogurtland shops, we’re making the summer more fun for everyone.”
When we stopped by our local Yogurtland only a few of the flavors had been released (they release a new flavor just about weekly). We decided to try Toad’s Rocky Road. We topped our creation with peanuts, mochi, and dark chocolate chips! The addition of mochi instead of marshmallows gave this rich and delightful chocolate frozen yogurt a new punch. The Toad’s Rocky Road flavor itself was just the right balance of chocolate and sweet, not overly sweet mind you. We can’t wait to go back and try Shy Guy’s Pineapple Lime Coconut Sorbet and Koopa Troopa’s Lemon Cupcake (just to name a few).
To expand the fun experience outside of the store, Yogurtland is also hosting a sweepstakes that offers the best treats summer has to offer. By visiting https://www.yogurt-land.com/, fans of Nintendo, Yogurtland and winning cool prizes can enter for a chance to win a Wii U system and one year of free frozen yogurt.
