Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt Ghirardelli Contest


Contest Prizes Include Trip to Chocolate Festival in San Francisco and Free Froyo for a Year

Oklahoma City (Feb. 3, 2014) – To reward the millions of Americans who choose chocolate as their favorite frozen yogurt flavor, Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt and Ghirardelli® Chocolate have 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, but only for a limited time. In addition, five second place winners will receive the ultimate indulgence: free Orange Leaf froyo for a year.

From Feb. 3 through March 2, any customer who purchases a 16 oz. or 24 oz. 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 use that code to enter to win online at 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, America’s fastest growing froyo concept (1), has partnered with the Ghirardelli Chocolate Company, one of the oldest chocolate companies in America, to create the first official Chocolate made with Ghirardelli froyo, boasting the same rich, premium Ghirardelli chocolate that’s been handmade in San Francisco for more than 160 years.

“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,” said 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 froyo flavors, by mixing, swirling, dividing or building the froyo with any combination of fruit, nuts, candy and other healthy or decadent treats from the do-it-yourself toppings bar. This also allows customers to control their portion size and nutritional value to fit their dietary needs and taste preferences. To inspire customers’ creations, Orange Leaf suggests the following “recipe” idea:

“Rocky Road”

  • Chocolate froyo made with Ghirardelli
  • Marshmallows
  • Peanuts
  • Ghirardelli Chocolate Sauce

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.

There is no purchase necessary to enter into the contest. The contest is open only to individuals 18 years of age or older who are residents of the United States. Official contest rules and information are available online.
