Denver (PRWEB) August 08, 2013

TCBY and Silk® are proud to announce Silk® Chocolate Almond, the first ever national dairy-free, almondmilk-based frozen yogurt option. Combining TCBY’s legendary frozen yogurt with Silk’s nutritious almondmilk, Silk Chocolate Almond is a delicious addition to the TCBY family of flavors.

“We are excited to let our customers enjoy this new, innovative and revolutionary product,” said Famous Brands International CEO Neal Courtney. “Silk Chocolate Almond is the result of collaboration and development between TCBY and Silk in order to provide our customers with a delicious flavor experience unlike any other currently on the national market.”

As a dairy-free and indulgent offering, there were numerous challenges to ensure TCBY delivered the perfect product. TCBY’s research and development team worked hand-in-hand with Silk, the No. 1 brand of almondmilk, to perfect the formulation, flavor profile, and texture of Silk Chocolate Almond.

The two brands are a naturally perfect pairing. TCBY and Silk customers are linked by their dedication to a healthy lifestyle and love of products that deliver wholesome nutrition without sacrificing taste. Those who previously were unable to enjoy TCBY due to milk allergies or lactose intolerance can now dig in to a swirl of Silk Chocolate Almond.

“Silk is committed to providing even more great-tasting plant-based choices to consumers, and this further extends that commitment,” said Tyler Holm, Vice President of Silk Marketing. “Partnering with TCBY allows us to reach even more consumers with a delicious dairy-free option.”

TCBY and Silk are celebrating their “perfect match” with “The Perfect Match” campaign on social media. Fans are encouraged to join in the celebration by posting to social media, utilizing the #TCBYPerfectMatch hashtag, and by entering the “You + Beach = The Perfect Match" sweepstakes for the chance to win a trip for two to a Caribbean destination of their choice, including airfare, three-night hotel accommodations, and $500 spending cash. The sweepstakes launches in conjunction with Silk Chocolate Almond and runs through August 22nd, 2013. In addition to the Caribbean getaway, weekly winners will receive iPad Minis and daily winners will receive $25 TCBY gift cards. More information is available via “The Perfect Match” Facebook app.

“We’re so excited about the perfect match we found in TCBY and Silk that we wanted to give our fans a chance to close out the summer with the opportunity to win a perfect match of their own,” said Famous Brands International Vice President Dustin Finkel. “What better way to celebrate than with a trip for two to anywhere in the Caribbean?”

TCBY is the established leader for innovation in the frozen yogurt sector. The company was the first to market with its soft serve Greek Super Fro-Yo in 2012 and was recognized for the launch of its healthy Super Fro-Yo line in 2011.

Interviews with members of the TCBY and Silk team are available. Visual elements and samples of the new product are also available by request.
