Sorry Ice Cream, I’m On My Way to Pinkberry!

Pink Berry-5
I’m now a Frozen Yogurt addict after I tasted the holy grail of Frozen Yogurt — Pink Berry in LA! Pink Berry opened in LA last 2005 by two Korean entrepreneurs, Shelly Hwang and Young Lee. (see: The taste that launched 1,000 parking tickets) It has been a craze in LA ever since and in fact, Pink Berry was bought by Starbucks . (see: Starbucks founder bites into Pink Berry)

The official theme song in Pink Berry’s website says it all and I can’t get it out of my head.
” Sorry Ice Cream, I’m dreaming of a different dessert.
Pink Berry Shave Ice and Frozen Yogurt.
It doesn’t feel like I’m cheating when I’m eating it.
Coz its healthy…I feel better already…”

“Sorry Ice Cream, I’m on my way to P-I-N-K-B-E-R-R-Y Pink Berry!”

A Shout Out to Starbucks, Manila — when can you bring Pink Berry to the Philippines?! I’m craving for Pink Berry Frozen Yogurt!

Pink Berry Frozen Yogurt has three yogurt flavors: Original Yogurt, Green Tea and Coffee. I tasted all three and I love the Green Tea yogurt specially with a kiwi topping. The original yogurt has a gelato smoothness feel and has the right sour and sweet taste. The coffee flavor is new because of Starbucks influence. It has a weird acquired taste — just think about a sour coffee with a sweet yogurt taste. Given the pricing below, expect that this will be a P100+ frozen yogurt when it arrives in Manila.
Original Frozen Yogurt
Small $2.50 + each topping $0.95
Medium $3.50, with 3 toppings $4.95
Large $5.50, with 3 toppings $6.95
Green Tea and Coffee Frozen Yogurt
Small $3.50 + each topping $0.95
Medium $4.50, with 3 toppings $5.95
Large $6.50, with 3 toppings $7.95

  1. I recently visited New York and there’s this new yogurt placed called Red Mango, which I can say is better than Pinkberry. It has a creamier texture to it. Apparently, Red Mango is the original, and Pinkberry just copied the concept. Either way, hopefully some of these brands can make it to Philippine shores, so the frozen yogurt craze can begin!

  2. i tried this when i was in pasadena last august.
    it was good, although there was another place across the street, called 21 flavors, which i liked much better.
    they offered 6 different flavors of yogurt (banana, dark chocolate, french vanila, etc.). and they have a wider range of toppings. the place is also very cozy and the staff there were very nice. ๐Ÿ™‚
    i got banana flavored yogurt with rice krispies and fresh strawerries. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Yes please someone bring pinkberry! i love the strawberry + mochi combo! they don’t usually put mochi on the list, but they have that! But i also heard about red mango. oh well on my next vacation then!

  4. im addicted pinkberry! when i was at the states i have the original yogurt with mangoes, strawberries, and oreo around twice a week! i really bid farewell to ice cream =) i also tried 21 flavors in pasadena but i still like pinkberry more =) i hope we’ll have pinkberry in pinas soon!

  5. wow! so you’re now a part of the pink berry craze ๐Ÿ™‚ sadly i’m not into pink berry or other frozen yogurt treat. i’m more of a gelato person but i’m sure calorie conscious folks will enjoy this treat ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. oh i almost forgot! speaking of sweet treats, you should try Sprinkles cupcakes in beverly hills. YUMMY! I hand-carried a big box from my last trip!

  7. Pinkberry has spawned so many business like it – Red Mango, Yogurtland etc. Yogurtland has so many flavors of yogurt though like French Vanilla, Strawberry, Cheesecake etc. But Pinkberry is still tops. I like its vanila with mango and mochi. The mangoes can be a bit sour sometimes. Imagine if it was Philippine mangoes..yummy! and like what via said try Sprinkles – their red velvet is just divine and so are the banana and also the carrot. But banana and carrot are only available on some days. red velvet is available everyday.

  8. I’ve been hearing a lot about the “Fro-yo (frozen yogurt) Wars” in the States. Looks like Red Mango is giving Pink Berry a run for its’ money. My sister who used to be addicted to Pink Berry swtiched to Red Mango. Now she doesn’t even know why she liked Pink Berry in the first place! Haha.
    Maybe you can try Red Mango too the next time you’re in the States. Or Bangkok. Heard there are a few branches there too. Am actually going there next week so can’t wait to get me some!;)

  9. we used to have yogurt ice cream here in MOA… its Rosi Yogo. unfortunately it closed down and i was sooooo sad cos i loved it so much!!! i have read about pink berry and it made me miss Rosi Yogo… how i wish someone can bring Pink Berry to the Philippines

  10. i love pinkberry and red mango!!! there’s also this other yogurt place called ce fiore. last time i went, they had a list of upcoming locations and they had philippines on the list. ce fiore’s yogurt, as i’d like to think, is a cross between pinkberry’s tartness and red mango’s creaminess. they’re also a dollar (i think) cheaper than pinkberry.

  11. i guess… pinkberry wasn’t that nutritious after all – There’s 23 ingredients in a Pinkberry. Two of the ‘sugars’ used, fructose and maltodextrin, another are both laboratory-produced ingredients extracted from corn syrup. Then there’s a bunch of stuff that sounds like items you’d find in a scary science lab, including five additives defined by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization as ’emulsifiers’ (propylene glycol esters, lactoglycerides, sodium acid pyrophosphate, mono- and diglycerides).
    Dr. Gary A. Reineccius, a professor in the department of food science and nutrition at the University of Minnesota said that many of the ingredients Pinkberry uses gives it qualities that nonfat frozen yogurt would not have naturally. – got this from perezhilton’s blog (rumor hag that i am), so you may double check if desired.

  12. we went to a place called california berry today. it’s somewhere in ortigas (at the silver city mall, i believe). it’s just like pinkberry! only the toppings aren’t as great (strawberries with syrup? didn’t look that healthy to me) and the place is small. depending on the toppings and the size of the cup, you’d end up paying a minimum of P115 and a maximum of P145. i think you can get a plain cup for P50 or something.

  13. Starbucks does not own Pinkberry. I should know I work for Pinkberry. The founder of Starbucks (but not Starbucks Company)bought a fair share of the Pinkberry company.
