Pinkberry-what's the deal? [moved from L.A. board]

I see the posts about this place and also looked at the website to but I don't get it. My family and I are going to Fogo D' Chao on Saturday night and if my fellow CH's say so we will go to Pinkberry afterwards and see what he hype is.

  1. I've never been to Pinkberry either. However, IMHO, if you leave Fogo with room for Pinkberry, you did not get your money's worth at Fogo :)

    1. Just went for first time on Saturday and went back on Sunday. I really liked it. Had the plain with almonds. DH said it was good, but to him so sour that he needed a sweet mix in to counter balance it.

      1. Yeah, it's definitely something you can "get" by looking at it on line. It just tastes totally different from traditional soft serve. It's tangy like real yogurt, a little crispy because it has lower fat content than ice cream, and is kind of refreshing in a not too sweet way.

        I agree that if you have room after Fogo that something is wrong, but Pinkberry also seems like the perfect dessert after a big meal because it'll refresh your palate rather than laden you down further.

        1. I eat no dairy, but last night I took a spoonful of my son's Pinkberry. It was the first time I tried it.

          I have to admit, it tasted really good -- clean and fresh and tart.

          If I ate yogurt, I'd eat this yogurt a lot.

          Sort of expensive, though.

            Yeah. I'm not particularly price sensitive, but I have to say it pisses me off to be charged a $1 (or whatever it is) for a table spoon of Captain Krunch sprinkled over my yogurt.

              Next time, order a Pinkberry without cereal toppings and B.Y.O. cereal in a ziploc bag :)

          2. go to Mondo Gelato in WLA instead of PB...on Pico Blvd, just west of Westwood blvd.
            better than PB imo and CHEAPER too.
