September 01, 2015 // Franchising.com // SENCINO, Calif - Menchie’s, North America’s fastest growing self-serve frozen yogurt franchise, is spreading magic and pixie dust in their partnership with Warner Bros. Pictures’ and RatPac-Dune Entertainment’s new live-action movie PAN, which opens in theatres October 9th. Throughout the month of September, Menchie’s will offer guests an immersive flavor experience that is out of this world.
Menchie’s is starting off the month of September with PAN-inspired flavors for an exciting experience. PAN’s Pixie Dusted Sugar Cookie will be a month-long offering of a decadent flavor of white sugar cookie with a sprinkle of pixie dust. From September 1st to September 10th, guests can savor Blackbeard’s Neverland Chocolate Chill, a devilishly rich chocolate flavor perfect for PAN’s villainous Captain Blackbeard. Hook’s Jolly Roger Raspberry Tart will be making waves from September 11th to September 20th with flavors of blue raspberry that are as mildly tart as Hook himself. Ending the month is Tiger Lily’s Tropical Mango Sorbet, available from September 21st to September 30th, for a taste that is as bright and vibrant as Tiger Lily’s home in Neverland.
To complete the magical experience, guests can collect all four exclusively designed PAN cups featuring Peter Pan, Captain Blackbeard, Hook and Tiger Lily, as well as begin the battle of flavors with a limited-time only PAN-themed spoon showcasing a sword-wielding Menchie. Adventure awaits at Menchie’s from September 1st to September 30th, so guests should set their sights to the nearest location before the flavors sail away.

Pictures specializes in producing stories that capture the hearts and minds of audiences everywhere,” said Amit Kleinberger, CEO of Menchie’s. “We are honored to collaborate with them to bring fans a special PAN-inspired experience with unique, smile-inducing flavors to bring the excitement of the film into fans’ Froyo cups.”
