Honey Badger

Watch out says that bird! Honey badger better be on the lookout because he’s being made into a frozen yogurt.

Red Mango is introducing a new Honey Badger frozen yogurt flavor based on the viral YouTube video "The Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger," according to the Huffington Post

With almost 46 million video views, the honey badger froyo is sure to get a lot of attention — especially because it’s only around for a limited time. 

The yogurt is actually just made of nonfat frozen yogurt with honey. The ads for the honey badger yogurt speak just like the honey badger: "Try it… or not. We don’t care."

The YouTube-inspired yogurt is being promoted strictly through social media outlets like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. 

"We wanted to show the true power and influence of our social media audience by speaking directly to them with our brand new flavor, and letting them decide where to take the message," said Dan Kim, founder of Red Mango.

Red Mango isn’t the only one jumping on the YouTube-inspired food bandwagon. 

Trinity Brewing in Colorado Springs has released its Double Rainbow beer based on the Yosemitebear Mountain Giant Double Rainbow YouTube video, which has over 34 million views. 

In California, a former UCLA student went viral with a racist rant about Asian people in the library and coined her one-liner “ching chong ling long.” To find some humor in the video, Ching Chong Ling Long Gourmet Takeout was formed by owner Rachel Lee.
