For Red Mango and Pinkberry, It's Pomegranate War

For Red Mango and Pinkberry, It's Pomegranate War

Last Thursday, frozen yogurt chain Red Mango announced that it would be partnering with pomegranate juice pioneer, POM Wonderful, to debut its first new flavor, Pomegranate by POM Wonderful.

But someone else had the same idea: Red Mango's biggest rival, cult favorite Pinkberry. New York magazine's food blog first reported that the rival chain's pomegranate flavor is slated to hit stores Nov. 21, one week after Red Mango's, and a Pinkberry rep confirmed with us the release of the new flavor.

This pomegranate battle isn't the first time that Pinkberry and Red Mango have gone head to head, and it certainly won't be the last. While the two chains may not be thrilled with the news, I'll be excited to conduct a taste-off. Will you do the same?

well - i think that the fact that they are both named after a color then fruit shows that there's a TON of competition - so i don't know what to expect. it's interesting to see that they are keeping each other on their toes.

what if they're the same company and they are only "rivals" so that they can draw in customers to compare them??

This is not the first time they've went head to head. In Flushing, New York, Red Mango and Pinkberry are a couple stores away from each other, on the same street. Now that's competition.

I love/support Pinkberry! :-) Hehe. I tried Red Mango, and I didn't like it at all. It tastes more like ice cream opposed to the more frozen yogurt taste of Pinkberry. I guess it depends on what type of flavor you're looking for. I'm not crazy for pomegranate, but I'd be willing to give it a try (at Pinkberry).

I've had Pinkberry at almost all the NYC locations and it just DOESN'T do it for me. RED MANGO ALL THE WAY!! Can't wait to try both chains pomegranate flavors though I think I'm already partial to RM's!

We don't have either of us near me, so they can fight it out all they want.

I LOVE Pinkberry and get it every time I go to NYC! I haven't tried Red Mango though, but would be willing!

Love Pinkberry, didn't like Red Mango at all. I always get strawberries on top. Pinkberry had sliced strawberries. Red Mango had the frozen stuff you find in the freezer section. I'll try the pomegranate, though!
