Yogurt Mill’s Outrageous Chamoy Cup, one of the frozen dessert concept’s line of “custom-crafted creations,” is audacious in both appearance and flavor. It features the spicy-tangy-sweet profile of chamoy and fruit, a popular combination south of the border. A signature Dole pineapple sorbet is layered with fresh mango, fresh pineapple and chamoy sauce, then sprinkled with Tajín and garnished with a tamarind candy straw. “The well-roundedness of flavors and refreshing qualities make it the perfect go-to treat for summer,” says Kayla Johnson, Marketing Manager.
The spicy-sweet treat was developed in part to make a cultural connection with Central California’s Hispanic demographic, while introducing the profile to new customers. “Incorporating our high-quality sorbet with traditional flavors was something we had been working toward for a while,” she says.
Originally presented as an LTO two years ago, the Chamoy Cup was a bona fide crowd pleaser among a wide audience, and when Yogurt Mill opted to establish its pineapple sorbet as a daily flavor option at all its locations, the popular combination made a triumphant return. “Our customers are ecstatic about it, and we are beating projected sales,” Johnson says.
