The frozen yogurt craze has been around for quite some time, but it is still spreading from coast to coast and town to town. Frozen yogurt, or “fro-yo” as many of us like to call it, is a more refreshing (and healthier) option than ice cream and other high-fat indulgences. I always feel much better about myself having frozen yogurt than other desserts. I have tried many fro-yo brands including 16 Handles, Red Mango, Swizzles, and Top This, but Pinkberry is my all-time favorite!
Pinkberry’s frozen yogurt flavors include Original, Pomegranate, Chocolate, Mango, Coconut and Green Tea. Additional seasonal flavors include Blood Orange, Peanut Butter, and Peppermint. Although Pinkberry isn’t one of those do-it-yourself places, you still get to pick from a variety of toppings that include assorted fresh fruits and sweet treats. My favorite combination is Chocolate and Pomegranate with fresh strawberries on the Chocolate side and chocolate chips on the Pomegranate side. My mom’s favorite is Green Tea mixed with Pomegranate.
You can eat your treat in the shop, head outside to sit benches, or go for a walk. If you need to bring your fro-yo home… it is never a problem at Pinkberry! You can get your treats to-go and a small bag of ice is conveniently included to avoid melting on the ride home.
There are currently three Pinkberry locations in Connecticut: Fairfield, Greenwich and South Windsor (with a Hartford location swirling soon)! Some people say it’s the higher prices that keep Pinkberry classy, but I would say it is a perfect combination of lovely taste, all natural and always fresh products, and quality service. So next time you are craving something sweet, find a Pinkberry and go!* It will be your new classy obsession.
