(Irvine, CA) Jan. 24, 2016 – Yogurtland, the ever-popular self-serve frozen yogurt brand, and DreamWorks Animation box-office hit Kung Fu Panda are teaming up to honor Kung Fu Panda 3 – the last of an animated trilogy that, like Yogurtland, promotes fun, creativity and happiness on the road through life.
“The Kung Fu Panda movies are all about being proud of who you are, helping others in need, and using the tools we have to make the best out of every situation,” said Tim Fuhrman, director of marketing at Yogurtland. “We at Yogurtland could not agree more with the trilogy’s outstanding perspective and heartwarming message.”
In a special promotion that begins Jan. 4, Yogurtland will introduce five new flavors and collectable spoons inspired by characters from the film. Yogurtland stores will feature Kung Fu Panda 3 promotional artwork, balloons and offer temporary tattoos. Other Kung Fu Panda 3 merchandise will be available at select stores.
Kung Fu has never tasted so delicious, especially now that Yogurtland has crafted five brand new flavors and collectable spoons to resemble the characters and excitement on the big screen in Kung Fu Panda 3. New spoons and in-store flavors are crafted for these five heroic crime-fighting characters:
- Po’s Panda Cookies and Cream: The perfect combination of dark chocolate cookie and sweet center filling packed into smooth frozen yogurt;
- Master Tigress’s Big Pop Sorbet: A tart and tantalizing, naturally orange-flavored sorbet that delivers a tiger-like punch in a cup;
- Master Shifu’s Honey Graham: The light and smooth taste of this delicious frozen flavor makes for the perfect foundation to any and all adventurous Yogurtland toppings;
- Lady Mei Mei Panda’s Warrior Passion Tart: An icy and tart-filled burst of pink passion fruit fills this new flavor with excitement;
- Young Bao Panda’s Cherry tart: A sweet, natural cherry twist loads the senses in this light and fun tart.
Yogurtland will also offer Po’s Power Crunch cereal, sold exclusively at Walmart, as a topping during the promotion.
To kick off the promotion on Jan. 4th, the first 1,000 guests visiting each Yogurtland location will receive Kung Fu Panda-inspired fortune cookies to enjoy with their frozen yogurt or sorbet.
Yogurtland measures success by making a bad day good, and a good day great. Beyond a passion to serve the finest quality frozen yogurt and toppings imaginable, Yogurtland is actively involved in the communities served by its locations. Yogurtland stores frequently partner with community groups, schools and other non-profits for fundraising opportunities and are the perfect meeting spot to enjoy a treat with family and friends.
“It thrills me when movies set out to teach our young people to have a positive outlook on day to day life,” added Fuhrman. “In many ways, the optimism we find in examples like we see in Kung Fu Panda 3 reminds us all to be heroes for each other and to have fun doing it.”
Yogurtland will celebrate its 10th anniversary and to commemorate the occasion and the completion of the Kung Fu Panda trilogy, limited edition Kung Fu Panda 3 key chains will be available while supplies last.
Kung Fu Panda arrives in theaters Jan. 29.
