Additional comments:
  • Frozen yogurt franchise originating from Southern California by American Koreans
  • Started the recent frozen yogurt craze
  • Most popular frozen yogurt chain in the US
  • Healthy frozen yogurt, with a tang
  • Non-fat, low-fat flavours
  • Contains live and active cultures
  • Carries seal of approval from National Yogurt Association
**Recommendation: I like the original flavour, but it really depends on what you like. The NEW Pinkberry fruit parfait is a deal...and you should try it. $3.95USD same price as a small w/ 2 toppings.

Pinkberry started the frozen yogurt craze. I wouldn't say its the original, because Yogen Fruz, and TCBY and several other family owned and operated yogurt places existed before it. But Pinkberry still remains the most recognized frozen yogurt place in the US, especially in California. It is good, but then I tried 21 Choices - and 21 Choices swallowed Pinkberry in the competition. Pinkberry has great marketing and a cute and contemporary atmosphere, but talking about great frozen yogurt - 21 Choices takes the spot!

On the table:
  • Original frozen yogurt
    • Toppings: Coconut, granola
    • This was my favourite out of the bunch. Nice and crunchy.
  • Original frozen yogurt
    • Toppings: Cap n' Crunch, pineapple
    • Great combination. Tart and sweet, as long as the Cap n' Crunch stays crispy its delish! The pineapple is fresh too.
  • Coconut frozen yogurt
    • Toppings: Coconut, almonds
    • The coconut and coconut didn't really do much.
  • **Pinkberry Fruit Parfait $3.95USD - same price as a small w/ 2 toppings
    • 7 layers: layers of fresh fruits. honey almond granola and original frozen yogurt
    • Fresh fruit includes: blueberries, strawberries, more yogurt, kiwi, pineapple
  • Passionfruit frozen yogurt
    • Extra tangy and tart...tangier than the original for sure.
  • Pomegranate frozen yogurt
    • Not bad, I liked it a bit more than the passionfruit. Again tangier than the original.
  • Coconut frozen yogurt
    • It was not bad, tangy coconut is kind of odd though.
