Sherman Oaks Frozen Yogurt - Like Pinkberry?
I noticed a frozen yogurt place called Limelight or something like that in the Sherman Oaks strip mall where Baby Donuts (not good) used to be. Anyone been? I am a Pinkberry fan and am wondering if it is similar or if it is especially good?
Have patience, the pink tornado is rumored to be readying a location in Sherman Oaks, although I have to confirm its location before saying anything on this board. If it does happen, it will cause major chaos for 2 reasons, one the obvious, and the other is the tenant being replaced.
It's pretty good. When I went, they were still getting going, and only had a plain tart flavor and a green tea flavor, but the man behind the counter said more flavors would be coming, as would be expanding the number of available mix-ins.
I think what I really like about limelight are the aesthetics; it's got a very minimal, sleek feel inside. The man also said it was sweetened with fructose, (so good for my diabetic friend) and it has like 25 or 30 calories per ounce, like run of the mill yogurt. Something about the interior though makes the whole experience feel like a "cleansing" experience... the yogurt may not be a health food per se, but they've done a good job in creating an atmosphere that emits a feeling of minimal damage :)
There's also a really good yogurt place on Ventura Blvd in Encino (16060 Ventura Blvd
Encino, CA 91436) called "Yogurt Zone". Sounds kinda lame & the logo seems un-hip, but the yogurt is good, and the interior is nicely designed. It's in a mini-mall on the SE corner of Ventura & Woodley.
They have the trendy sour yogurt (called Vanilla Dream (PB) ), The PB stands for PeachBerry. The yogurt is neither vanilla nor peachy, but it's just as good as PinkBerry, if not better.
Perhaps their best selling point & differentiator, is that they have a really large selection of yummy dry toppings (nuts, chocolate chips, marshmallows & a lot more) and the fruit toppings are are nicely displayed & kept fresh in bins on a frozen slab.
They also have good, sweet flavors of non-fat yogurt, including a killer Double Dutch Chocolate, a Chocolate Malt flavor, and Marshmallow flavor. They also have non-dairy yogurt & Carbolite.
All in all, a solid place, nice staff, clean interior and gooooood yogurt.
I was near a Pinkberry (the one on Vermont) the other day, had some time to kill before the movie, and figured I'd break down and sample the stuff. The least expensive serving on the board (I just wanted to see what it tasted like) was something like $2.50 for 6 oz. -- don't get ahead of me, here, Pinkberry regulars
The server asked what topping I'd like; I came up with blueberry. At which point the $2.50 became more like $4, for 6 oz. and a spoonful of fruit.
I ain't that crazy, and I sure ain't that trendy.
