Orange Leaf and Ghirardelli Reward Chocolate Lovers

To reward the millions of Americans who choose chocolate as their favorite frozen yogurt flavor, Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt and Ghirardelli Chocolate teamed up to give two lucky people a free trip to the Ghirardelli Chocolate Festival in San Francisco. The contest launches Orange Leaf’s newest frozen yogurt flavor, Chocolate made with Ghirardelli, available at all of Orange Leaf’s more than 300 locations across the country for a limited time. In addition, five second place winners will receive free Orange Leaf fro yo for a year.

Through March 2, any customer who purchases a 16-ounce or 24-ounce cup or Froyo To Go item of Chocolate frozen yogurt made with Ghirardelli at any Orange Leaf store will receive a game card that contains a unique entry code. Customers can use that code to enter to win online. The grand prize winner and five second place winners will be chosen at random and notified March 7, 2014.

As part of its “Year of the Flavor,” Orange Leaf partnered with the Ghirardelli Chocolate Company to create the first official Chocolate made with Ghirardelli fro yo.

“We are excited that the two innovative teams at Orange Leaf and Ghirardelli could come together to create Chocolate frozen yogurt made with Ghirardelli that tastes rich and decadent like our premium chocolate,” says Chris Eklem, vice president of Ghirardelli Chocolate’s Foodservice Division. “And we look forward to hosting the special contest winners at our 19th Annual Chocolate Festival, where they will enjoy gourmet chocolate tastings, chef demonstrations, and some of the best chocolate in the world.”

Customers are able to invent their own culinary creations with the new Chocolate made with Ghirardelli flavor, like all other Orange Leaf fro yo flavors, by mixing, swirling, dividing, or building the fro yo with any combination of fruit, nuts, candy, and other healthy or decadent treats from the toppings bar. This also allows customers to control their portion size and nutritional value to fit their dietary needs and taste preferences.

In addition to Chocolate made with Ghirardelli, customers can check their store’s web page, or download Orange Leaf’s iPhone or Android app, to check the other flavors available at local stores in February before they visit.
