Nintendo-Inspired Flavors and Beloved Characters Spread Delicious Fun Across U.S. at Local Yogurtland Locations!


After delighting fans for years with colorful visuals, memorable music themes and the familiar feel of iconic controllers, Nintendo is tackling a new sense: taste! Nintendo is partnering with popular frozen yogurt chain Yogurtland this summer to take families on a flavor-filled adventure that is sure to surprise and delight more than just their taste buds. When stepping into select Yogurtland locations between July 1 and Sept. 8, visitors craving the sweet and refreshing taste of frozen yogurt will be met with the sweet and refreshing faces of some of Nintendo’s most recognizable superstars. Classic characters like Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Yoshi and Bowser that star in popular Nintendo 3DS games like Mario Kart 7 and New Super Mario Bros. 2 will adorn the walls, cups and collectible biodegradable spoons that can only be found at the self-serve store. Visitors can even power-up their palates with Nintendo-inspired flavors like Mario’s Chocolate Gelato, Luigi’s White Chocolate Pistachio and Toad’s Rocky Road that are as delicious as they sound.

“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.”

This Yogurtland partnership continues Nintendo’s plan to expand its brand beyond its classic video games and systems to reach audiences in new ways. This new relationship with Yogurtland offers families the chance to partake in a refreshing summer activity while surrounding themselves with characters featured in some of the most popular games on Nintendo 3DS. Nintendo 3DS and the kid-friendly Nintendo 2DS are the ideal hand-held systems to take on every family adventure this summer. They are great for long trips, relaxing by the pool or even the occasional jaunt to the local Yogurtland store. In fact, Nintendo encourages people to take their portable systems with them when visiting Yogurtland so they can play the hottest games while they enjoy their cool treats.

“This summer’s flavor-filled adventure at Yogurtland is all about family moments – creating and remembering them,” said Yogurtland CEO and founder Phillip Chang. “This exciting promotion brings together multiple generations of frozen yogurt and video game fans to inspire summer fun.”

My son and I happily visited our local Yogurtland yesterday to try the new flavors! Mario’s Chocolate Gelato was a hit but my son likes Bowser’s Dragon Berry Tart the best! Also available is Toad’s Rocky Road and my new favorite: Yoshi’s Honey Dew! Yum! This one actually may be my all time favorite Yogurtland flavor!

I can’t wait to try the next round up of flavors!
