Yogurtland’s Now Serving Knott’s Boysenberry Pie Frozen Yogurt

I was invited to a special media tasting in order to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own.

Yogurtland has teamed up with Knott’s Berry Farm to give fans a delicious froyo experience inspired by Knott’s most popular dessert, boysenberry pie. The new Yogurtland flavor, Knott’s Berry Farm Boysenberry Pie frozen yogurt, was crafted alongside Knott’s and has arrived in stores, just a couple weeks before the Knott’s Berry Farm Annual Boysenberry Festival gets underway.

Each spoonful of Yogurtland’s Boysenberry Pie frozen yogurt flavor is bursting with
the jammy richness and sweet and tart taste of fresh boysenberries followed by
hints of a butter sweet pie crust. Inspired by the world-class award-winning pies, it’s
creamy and delicious, and no doubt Mrs. Knott herself would approve. For an added
boysenberry touch, Yogurtland will be serving mini boysenberry shortbread cookies
as a topping option.

“We are thrilled to be working in collaboration with Knott’s Berry Farm to celebrate,
in frozen yogurt form, one of Knott’s famous food attractions – the boysenberry pie,”
Our new Knott’s Boysenberry Pie froyo flavor gives fans of both brands something special to savor over and over again.” – Jennifer Ehrencron, Yogurtland’s senior marketing manager.

Knott’s Berry Farm started as a farm and evolved into a small fruit stand which has
since grown into a world-famous destination known for thrilling rides, famous fried
chicken dinners and delicious boysenberry pies. From the beginning, food and
dining have been at the heart of the Knott’s Berry Farm experience. The Knott’s
Boysenberry Festival is an annual event that celebrates the park’s historic roots by
highlighting the little berry that started it all, the boysenberry. Yogurtland’s new Knott’s Boysenberry Pie frozen yogurt  is now available in
Yogurtland stores so be sure to stop by soon! Also, as fans enjoy their Boysenberry Pie frozen yogurt at Yogurtland, they can also pick up a coupon good for up to $30 off one admission to Knott’s Berry Farm.  That’s a total win-win!For more information and to find the Yogurtland location nearest you, please go HERE.

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that one of my favorite things to do is share many of the foods I eat! We were invited to the soft opening of the newest Orange County Jimboy’s Tacos location in Brea, which is actually the 3rd Orange County location. (The other 2 are in Anaheim and Huntington Beach.) The official Grand Opening of the Brea location will be on Tuesday, August 28 and beginning at noon, guests will receive a free Original Ground Beef Taco with any in-store purchase!Join Jimboy’s Tacos in Giving Back

On that day, 20% of all proceeds will be donated back to the nonprofit organization, which works to improve the lives of children in foster care through collaborating with community partners, like Jimboy’s Tacos, to raise money to provide resources for foster youth and to educate volunteers on issues surrounding the foster care system.Jimboy’s Tacos first opened nearly 65 years ago as a simple food trailer on the shores of Lake Tahoe, CA. With sights set on serving the best tasting taco on the planet, founder Jim “Jimboy” Knudson created the Original Ground Beef Taco, which has not changed since it was first served in 1954, and remains the most popular item on their menu. This iconic taco is made fresh with seasoned ground beef, freshly shredded cheese, and lettuce encased in a crispy, stone-ground corn shell dusted with parmesan cheese. Yep, you read that correctly! PARMESAN CHEESE! Mmm, it’s sooo yummy!Another must-try item on Jimboy’s menu is the Taquito Burrito, a signature grilled burrito stuffed with three taquitos. The Taquito Burrito mash-up has led to the creation of a revolutionary “Craft Your Own Mash-Up” section of the Jimboy’s menu. Other menu items include loaded burritos, fresh salads, shareable bites like queso and chips, and several breakfast items.I LOVED the Tahoe Nachos, which are pictured above. They are definitely enough to share! Oh, and they also have desserts including churros and Choco-Tacos!Jimboy’s Tacos Brea is located at
