Yasso Frozen Greek Yogurt adds to yogurt bar line
BOSTON — Yasso Frozen Greek Yogurt is adding three new flavors to its line of Greek yogurt bars with coconut, mango and vanilla bean flavors to hit retail store shelves in February.
"Our decision to launch Coconut, Mango and Vanilla Bean was based on consumer conversations throughout our national sampling tour and surveys we conducted on Facebook," said Yasso co-founder Drew Harrington. "We’re fortunate to have such wonderful fans and love including them in the creation of new flavors and product launches. Coconut, Mango and Vanilla Bean will add exciting flavor diversity to the current lineup of Raspberry, Strawberry and Blueberry."
The coconut flavor uses real shavings of coconut, creating a unique treat that has a punch of flavor. It’s a great healthy option for a summery snack. Mango is made with real mangoes, providing 60% of the recommended amount of daily vitamin C per bar. The authentic mango flavor also is a great solution for an on-the-go breakfast. Vanilla Bean takes the timeless flavor and combines it with the natural tartness of Greek yogurt, delivering a traditional taste with an untraditional calorie count and 7 g of protein.
Each bar is only 80 calories, has 6 to 7 g of protein and contains little to no fat. All Yasso novelty bars are offered in 3.5-oz. bars, made with all-natural, real Greek yogurt and are free of artificial sweeteners. Yasso Frozen Greek Yogurt Bars are available in major retailers nationwide.
