Thanks, But No Thanks: Pumpkin Spice Frozen Yogurt at Red Mango

We're huge fans of pumpkin desserts at Serious Eats, so Red Mango's seasonal Pumpkin Spice frozen yogurt sounded like a good bet.

Unfortunately, however, it was a huge disappointment, tasting almost identical to Red Mango's standard tart yogurt. In fact, if I hadn't seen my cup filled from the "Pumpkin" yogurt nozzle, I would have assumed they'd given me the wrong kind; there wasn't the slightest taste of pumpkin, or of the cinnamon and nutmeg that usually accompany it. Refreshing, and tasty, but in no way a fall dessert. Pumpkin fans should seek their fix elsewhere.
