Not the best frozen yogurt place
There's a reason why its existing outlets are near empty at almost all times of the day. It just doesn't match up to other fro-yo places.
But I was tempted one day to try their grapefruit yogurt since I love citrus and grapefruit is my favourite citrus. I was so excited because very few yogurt/ice cream/dessert places serve anything citrus-flavoured. And, even if they do, grapefruit is rarely on the menu. To my disappointment, it was more yogurt than grapefruit. There was only a hint of grapefruit in every spoonful and not enough to get me to a citrus high. It was absolutely, utterly disappointing. I was expecting that palate-refreshing effect, but what I got was far from it, merely a tickling of the palate and that was all. The taste of the grapefruit didn't last, and the sweetness, I believed, was more sugar than the natural sweetness of grapefruit.
I had had Red Mango's when I accompanied a colleague to satisfy her sweet tooth craving and she had a discount coupon somewhere in March this year. I ordered the original flavor with just peaches as toppings. It was pretty good and they gave quite a generous amount of the toppings for us both.
I was hit by a sudden pang for peaches a few days ago and went back to Red Mango to order what I had previously. They disappointed me this time. Despite paying the full price (unlike a discounted price previously) for a cup, they gave a 5 measly slivers of peaches. Dumping it unceremoniously atop the frozen yoghurt, they handed me my order without even a thank you.
Unacceptable service, unacceptable food serving. Not going back anymore.
Once a fan, always a fan!
Red mango is definitely one of the less popular frozen yoghurt shops in Singapore. Sometimes, when I tell my friends of this place, all I'm met with a bunch of puzzled faces staring at me. A lot of my friends have no idea what Red mango is, but I'm in love with the yoghurt here!
My favourite flavour is the original one and most of the time, I have to get the medium cup. The small one is way too little and I don't mind paying more to enjoy my yoghurt. Some of my favourite toppings include granola and nata de coco. What I also like about this place is that they have a flavour of the day, and certain promotions throughout the month. The yoghurt here is also not too sweet and is about 120 calories or so. It is definitely for the health conscious, who want to maintain their slim figures and yet have a sweet treat!
I love it.
I know Red Mango may not be the popular frozen yogurt store, but I love it. It's the only frozen yogurt store that is truly all-natural, fat-free, and gluten-free. It has an absolutely refreshing taste - so different from the average frozen yogurt store that has frozen yogurt choked full of sugar and flavouring. I also love the red and white interior of the store at Esplanade Exchange.
The frozen yogurt feels healthy, clean and not at all decadent nor sinful. It may be due to my prior pleasant experiences associated with this yogurt store or my own imagination. but their yogurt tastes different from the other frozen yogurt stores. I love frozen yogurt and have tried out probably every frozen yogurt store in Singapore, and I still find that the taste and texture of Red Mango frozen yogurt is unique.
i'm all out of love..
having fell in love with this South Korean franchise since I tried them in Bangkok almost 5 years ago, I've been regularly travelling back to get my Red Mango fro-yo fix. That was until I finally spotted the first Red Mango franchise in Singapore (Suntec "tasty treatz" section) in 2009, almost a year after Red Mango's surprisingly muted entrance in Q3 of 2008.
Since then, I never had to go to Bangkok, the States or Seoul for fro-yo anymore, as much of my fro-yo consumption was done at SG's Red Mango. Their core staff used to consist of two nice and sincere ladies who know their stuff, and are always ready to dispense copious amounts of toppings and extend a bright smile to all customers. I was a full fledged addict then, following closely on their heels, long after the big move to Esplanade Xchange.
Sounds like a fairy tale dream come true? Wish I could say so, but too bad this isn't my Happily Ever After.
Ever since their rapid expansion during the Fro-yo craze in the recent year, the service and yoghurt standards are dropping so fast, it's appalling. The yoghurt parfait, which used to be chock-full of personalized goodness, is now a limp representation of the glory days that passed them by. Red Mango's service levels took a greater dip with their new ladies at the counter, who often took to chatting loudly at the cashiers, bringing their friends for company, and coming off as totally disinterested.
Which is a shame really, I could have lived with Red Mango forever in sweet, frozen contentment.
Would not prefer it over the other options
I was first introduced to Red Mango by a friend of mine when we happen to be at Scape and we wanted to chill out somewhere and chat.
Thought it might be better than the usual Frolick or Yami Yogurt but I was downright wrong. The yogurt is sweeter than the ones I usually eat and the toppings just would not do. All the fruit selections can kill me with diabetes right away. There is nothing special with the interior design of the shop and doubtlessly, I do not see myself eating it again.
I definitely would not go back there, but for the sweet tooth out there, maybe?
Really, really average
Nothing the usual Yami Yogurt can't satisfy.
The branch I went to was in *scape and thank god by now, I have grown to expect dangerously little from food in town. Everything is over-hyped, everything will under-deliver, and I will find myself back in Pastamania, lost and found again.
So it's no surprise that Red Mango was plain as paper. I couldn't even be bothered to remember what I had. It's probably the smallest scoop of yogurt though, and original flavour. I remember telling myself I'll buy another cup if it's good but of course, it fell through and I left without finishing it.
Over-hyped, over-deliver, what else.
another yogurt review.
It was just -meh-
I didn't like the froyo because there is nothing special about it. It's just "like that lor"- a sentence I always use to describe things that aren't up to standard but aren't bad either. Slightly overpriced.
The shop is also a bit dark and the tables are small. Everything just makes you not want to sit down for long. You just want to finish your froyo and leave.
Their only saving grace is perhaps the big cup which costs about 5 dollars and you get to put in cereal too.. Some parfait looking thing. The shop attendant also looked as bored with her job and the shop as I was when I first saw the shop.
Wouldn't have went in if not for the fact that my friend was craving for froyo. Meh.
There aren't that many Red Mango outlets around, not that I have noticed anyway. I did find one at wilkie edge last year. The frozen yogurt is normal, very much like other froyos such as yoguru or yami. There is nothing special about the toppings either. The same frozen fruits, nuts and chocolate variety. I do not see the point in forking out 5 dollars for a small cup of frozen yogurt with a pathetic amount of topping. Perhaps, the person serving me wasn't in a good mood.
You can get your froyo in either original or some other wacky flavor they can think of. The last time i checked, they had passionfruit or pomegranate. Not my idea of tasty.
Apart from Yami Yogurt, Red mango is one of my favourite yoghurt chain in Singapore. It is such a pity that they do not have as many outlets.The only 2 outlets Red Mango outlet that I visit is the one at esplanade xchange and the one at Temasek Tower.
Usually, I will order their yoghurt museli. At a price of $5, you get to choose 1 fruit and 2 dry toppings that are placed in between your yoghurt.
Unlike most yogurt places which scatter the toppings right on top of the yoghurt, all the toppings from red mango are layered between the yoghurt. In this way, you need not finish up your topping first before you can eat yoghurt. The yoghurt museli are placed in a cup which is slightly bigger than the size of small coke at macdonalds. Therefore, I would say, it is totally worth the $5.
The frozen yoghurt at red mango are light, refreshing and the texture is just right. Not overly soft nor hard.
If you happen to pop by red mango, try their yoghurt museli in the following combination and you will not regret: Original flavour yoghurt + Mango + Granola + honey oats!
