I love Red Mango so much that even though the one in Harahan closed, I drove from New Orleans to Baton Rouge to check out this one.

self-serve yogurt

the girl behind the counter hands out mini cups so that you can go from station to station sampling various flavors. My new favorite is white peach.

self serve toppings

Unlike the stingy servers at Pinkberry, you can pour on your own toppings. of course they charge you buy the weight, but at least you can put on as many toppings as you want.

blueberries

look at how fresh the fruit selection is!

my creation

my creation has mochi, mangoes, pineapple, strawberries, blueberries and banana on white peach frozen yogurt.

the front

Well look who’s finally joined the New Orleans frozen yogurt scene! Welcome, Yogurtland! I’ve been expecting you!!

ambiance

This is like the more affordable version of frozen yogurt done right! When we walked in, we were handed several sample cups (most stores are super strict on limiting the number of samples you get). Joe and I had enough to sample at least one of each flavor (there are like 10? 12?)

lots of candy options

Don’t forget, you can put as much frozen yogurt and toppings as you want, but they will charge you by the price. Now I am pretty used to my order and expect it to come out to about $10 at Red Mango (at Pinkberry, they control how much frozen yogurt you get and how much of each topping so they can’t really be compared to these self-serve places) so imagine my shock when I went to ring up my order and it was only $4!!! Hello, Yogurtland! Goodbye, Red Mango (that is all the way in Baton Rouge).

lots of fresh fruit options as well

The service was friendly, the place was uber clean (just opened up 3 weeks ago) and the toppings looked amazing. On top of that, the flavors were delicious. Not too much tart.

Joe's creation

Joe went for the chocolate milk shake flavor frozen yogurt with mochi, cookie dough, chocolate chip and honey.

my creation

I went for the red velvet cake batter (that’s right!!) with mochi, twix (uh huh!), and toffee bits. Heaven! I’ll definitely be back.

When I moved down here from the north, I thought I had to say goodbye to frozen yogurt, and then Pinkberry came along which was a nice last resort and now Red Mango must have heard my pleas!

I love red mango! my bf is a huge pinkberry fan but i’m more a huge fan of red mango. I’m super excited that a lot of frozen yogurt chains have been investing in New Orleans. Pinkberry frozen yogurt has a lot of tart in it.
This Red Mango site is self-serve which is awesome! (don’t go overboard, they do charge you by the lb). Red Mango offers many flavors (whereas Pinkberry has 3-4). And tons of toppings (fresh fruits and candies alike), don’t forget to ask for banana (you can request it and they cut it up right there, otherwise it goes brown). The people working here are enthusiastic but not too knowledgeable.

I think the best way is to grab one of the smaller cups and try some frozen yogurt flavors before deciding on one and then go down the row, picking your favorite toppings. Try to cut the line (sorry gramps but you were taking too long) and go to the back of the store, pick up a cup size of your choosing, and enjoy!
