For Red Mango and Pinkberry, It's Pomegranate War

Nov 11 2008 - 11:15am

Last Thursday, frozen yogurt chain Red Mango [1] announced that it would be partnering with pomegranate juice pioneer, POM Wonderful [2], to debut its first new flavor [3], Pomegranate by POM Wonderful.

But someone else had the same idea: Red Mango's biggest rival, cult favorite Pinkberry [4]. New York magazine's food blog [5] 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 [6], 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 [7]. Will you do the same?
