Okay fellow Atlantans, as of June 25, 2010 we have our very own Pinkberry frozen yogurt shop. If you haven't stumbled upon this yet or ventured out to try a taste than you are missing out on some good eats. It's located just north of the city at the corner of Akers Mill and Cobb Parkway. Most Pinkberry shops are located in California and New York but they are expanding quickly across the Southeast and also have locations opening soon in Miami, Nashville, Charlotte and New Orleans.
I've been waiting for frozen yogurt to make a come back and it seems that the trend is rising. The thing I love about Pinkberry is that it's not trying to be ice cream. It still has that tangy yogurt flavor which I love. All Pinkberry flavors are non-fat or low fat and contain live active yogurt cultures which make it a great healthy treat. The fruit toppings are all sliced fresh on a daily basis and most of Pinkberry's dry toppings lean towards healthier options like granola, yogurt chips, fresh coconut and various nuts. They offer seasonal flavors as well as a 5-7 pm happy hour. Atlanta based Pinkberry also caters events such as baby showers, office parties or birthdays. You'll love the hip decor and groovy vibe when you walk through the door and the staff is incredibly nice. They let you sample as many flavors as you want without giving you the dreaded evil eye. I personally have tried the Original, Watermelon and Pomegranate flavors and all were equally delicious. I'm thinking about Mango for my next visit. You can tell my 3 year old Luke loved his trip to Pinkberry too. That's him with the face paint, compliments of the local YMCA. Check out the new Pinkberry in Atlanta and let me know if your tickled pink over Pinkberry!
