Pinkberry in Westwood- the real thing, not just hype
Hi everyone....I can't stand driving to West Hollywood, so I was thrilled to find the newer Pinkberry location in Westwood. And boy, was everyone right about the addictive nature of this stuff!!! I ordered the plain yogurt with mango, raspberry and graham cracker crumbles. I ate the whole thing (medium) and though full, was not satisfied----gimme more!!!
Interestingly, next time I will probably order yogurt without the toppings...I liked the consistancy and flavor of the yogurt so much that I want to enjoy it as-is.
Funny---it was 11 AM and I was 8th in line :-) Soooooo worth it!!!
I am so there with you, running pig. I had Pinkberry for the first last Wed. and I went 2 additional times before the week was out.
I can truly say that I am addicted, that yogurt is so GOOD! I am going to stop on my way home from work tonight. I can't wait until they open one in the Glendale/Pasadena area. I can literally see myself going everyday - I wish they had a frequent customer card.
To each his/her own, I guess. I stopped by Pinkberry in Westwood last week and cannot understand what all the hullabaloo is about. Yes, the yogurt has a mildly pleasing tartness to it, but it's not unique enough to justify the long lines or the gouging price of $3.50 for a small serving with one topping. Not to draw a direct comparison, but I believe that a single scoop at the Westwood Rite-Aid around the corner is still about a buck. From that perspective, the comparisons between Pinkberry and Starbucks may be totally apt.
I do like Pink Berry...but if you want something creamier and also have choice of one of the best gelaterias in LA, go to MONDO GELATO, on Pico Blvd just west of Westwood Blvd...not as expensive either.
Their Italian Frozen Yogurt is delicious, as are their amazing gelato...Mondo is fantastic!
