DENVER, July 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — TCBY(TM), the country’s best yogurt, and the world famous Angry Birds(TM) brand, are thrilled to join forces to offer animated, summer-friendly flavors for kids across America.
In honor of longer days and academic reprieve, TCBY will offer an array of limited-time Angry Birds flavors and exciting prizes. Flavors include:
-- Red's Birdberry Yogurt (Available July 17 - July 30): Offers a fun, bold, and creamy homage to fruity cereal-infused milk. -- Piggies' Sour Apple Sorbet (Available July 31 - August 13): This refreshing, tart combo of sweet and sour will create silly, puckered faces and lasting memories. -- Chuck's Bananabird Sorbet (Available August 14 - August 27): With a tropical twist and a banana-packed punch, Chuck's flavor just may inspire an impromptu Carmen Miranda-esque sashay to a hummed Chiquita tune. -- The Blues' Cacaw Cotton Candy Yogurt (Available August 28 - September 10): This vibrant flavor conjures up the nostalgia of a warm, fun-filled day at the State Fair.
“For kids, summer is all about fun. This Angry Birds partnership is the perfect way for us to join in on the festivities,” said Kelly Miano, Director of Marketing for Famous Brands International. “The bold yogurt and sorbet flavors bring popular Angry Bird characters to life and offer the perfect accent to warm weather and sun-filled days at the beach or pool.”
