Pinkberry=tasteless [moved from L.A. board]

Fresser Oct 8, 2006 03:02 AM

After all the posts and hype had to try it. Drug my hubby, a frozen dessert addict to the new Pinkberry in Westwood. I sampled the Green Tea which didn't entice me to order one. Hubbie had regular with a few normal adult toppings, no Capt. Crunch or Cocoa Pebbles. Since the toppings weren't labeled, it was necessary to ask for a description. We were totally unimpressed with this $5 yogurt as was the consensus of the young crowd sitting outside. For my money, the Big Chill down the street blows this stuff away.

    Finally tried Pinkberry late am in Westwood today. (There was a line of about 15 people last night, so we went to Bigg Chill instead.)

    Today (before noon, no line)tried the regular and the green tea. I thought they were excellent. I did have to drive around the block a few times to park in a loading zone for 3 minutes to get there.

    Though I liked it, I probably won't be back due to access issues. There's also 5 grams of sugar per ounce of yogurt - not something I can do. They barely filled the small cup and it was $3.50. Great idea, want to eat their yogurt, but I will be sticking to the Carbolite flavors at Bigg Chill.

      I like Pinkberry precisely because it's very mild and has a slight yogurty tang. But I agree that the lines are ridiculous, and I would go much more often if the price and line both decreased.

        LOL..I have been there 3 times in 3 days. I had a medium with 3 toppings for lunch today, and I'll be back tomorrow. I love it.
