yumm! – i love coming here. i absoulutley love the original tart. i was once a ie cream lover but now i am a frozen yogurt fan!
i am obsessed with pinkberry! – totally missing it now that i am back home. what are your must have toppings? my fave is the yogurt chips and fruit!
Wrong Order & They Got Mad – It really is overrated! I tried to get a job there. There was a kid interviewing me. I didn't know who goes there. So I bombed it. Plus, they got my order wrong. They got mad at me like it was fault!
tasty, addicting ........ – Went there for the first time yesterday , yes there was somewhat of a line . The first bite is not that great , kind of tangy. But each bite tastes better and better. Whats in this stuf??? You just keep comeing back for more. It is a little pricy , but oh so good.
Hallelujah! Pinkberry in The Valley! – I used to work in Studio City, so I was so happy when I discovered Pinkberry was also in The Valley. The creamy, zesty, slightly lemon-flavored taste of its plain yogurt is uniquely refreshing, especially during those hot, Valley summer days. The store also currently offers green tea and coffee flavors, as well as a variety of fruit, candy and cereal toppings (including Fruity Pebbles!). Diners sit inside or in front of the store in funky, chucky plastic chairs that are just as cool as the yogurt. This Pinkberry my favorite place to go for dessert in The Valley.
Over-Rated!! – Ok, so I finally decided to see what Pinkberry was all about and I am not impressed. Their yogurt has a wierd aftertaste that was so strong and nasty, I literally had to chew gum after I ate the yogurt to get rid of it. PLus, did you get a look at their fruit toppings? The raspberries have mold on them and were all smashed and the bananas were brown!!! YUCK! I heard it's not even frozen yogurt and I cannot understand why people would wait in line for this fake soft serve. I really don't care who came first in the froyo world, but do a blind taste test and Snowberry and Red Mango taste MUCH better!
A Most Refreshing Treat during a Most Blazing Heat – Pinkberry has revolutionized and rejuvenated the frozen yogurt craze with its sour/ sweet combo of delightful soft served yogurt. The original flavor is one of three flavors (green tea and coffee are the other flavor options), that the popular yogurt haven offers, and patrons can top it with fresh fruit, chocolate chips or cereal bits. The taste more closely resembles that of acutal yogurt than the sweet, creamy scoops offered by other faves like Golden Spoon and Yogurt Zone, but the tart flavor is catching on and showing up in all sorts of yogurt establishments. There is nothing better to taste on a hot, summer day than a nice cup of pinkberry original yogurt with berries and chocolate chips--yumm!
Love it – I love pinkberry! I am a total fanatic. My favorite is mochi with granola, and sometimes strawberry. A bit overpriced compared to other places but still good!
No thanks. – Not at all a fan of this yogurt joint. Aside from the fact that it is very elite-like and stuck up, I just found out that they use this artificial powder and water to make their supposedly one-of-a-kind yogurt...not ok with me! A small yogurt with a topping or two is way too much money, I'd much rather go to another yogurt place that has the same flavored yogurt (and probably a wider selection) for a much better price, and one that uses natural all ingredients.
ONE MORE GATHERING OF NUMB-MINDED TREND-RATS! – Yes, yes, yes. Pinkberry's trendy as hell. Its decor falls somewhere between that of an IKEA cafeteria & a Tokyo nightmare & the lines are out the door. I'm most familiar with the establishment on Vermont in Los Feliz but friends in New York say it's a hotspot there as well. The place is packed all day & night. Glassy-eyed hipsters wander out into the street with trays of the stuff. I tried it twice & personally found the "yogurt" to taste like a tarnished silver spoon. But maybe that's just me. Here's something: The yogurt they serve is delivered to the place in powdered form. And there's word it's not fat-free. Their website currently offers a vague assurance of wholesomeness but notes the company is "investigating" recent inquiries into the nature of the product (see "About " at www.pinkberry.c_m). So, if you're after a low calorie, "fat-free" wretched mystery then climb on board - the ship of fools is hoppin' - but be sure to wear your black All-Stars if you want a seat at the cool table.
My humble suggestion (for those in the Los Feliz area)... cowboy up fattys & check out the Hollywood Gelato Co. on Hillhurst. Gelato's not fat-free either but it's significantly richer yet healthier than ice cream (due to the making process & the fact it's key ingredient is milk rather than cream) & there's way more than two flavors to choose from.
In closing, it is my firm belief that the sooner we shake baseless trends, crucify mediocrity in the parking lots of shopping malls & demand good products the better off we'll be as a race. That said, let's hope Pinkberry shortly packs the powder in its bags & takes the dopey hordes with 'em.
