I got the chance to visit Pinkberry tonight for their media event to celebrate the grand opening of their first location in Edmonton and their third in Canada. Since opening their first nonfat frozen yogurt store in West Hollywood, California in 2005, they have become famous for their tart frozen yogurt, and rightfully so.
Pinkberry uses only nonfat yogurt and fresh nonfat milk. They describe themselves as the perfect balance of tangy and sweet and I think it is the perfect description.
I got the chance to sample the strawberry flavour. This one is their only seasonal flavour and is absolutely delicious. The yogurt is flavorful without being over sweet and the taste of strawberry really comes through. Other yogurt flavours available are Original, Coconut, Chocolate, Mango and Pomegranite.
After you choose the yogurt you want, you can choose from a range of toppings. Included in the options are fresh fruit, chocolate, nuts, seeds, and a long list of others.
My friend Raj who blogs over at Pink Chai tells me this is on her summer bucket list, and I think it should be on yours too. I’ve only tried it tonight and I am already thinking about it.
This location is open to the public starting tomorrow, July 13 in West Edmonton Mall. They are located on the main floor near the food court, right under H&M.
