For nearly four years now, our friends in California and New York have been simply gaga about this place called Pinkberry. At first, the name made us laugh because that’s what we used to call the little red thing that popped out of our male dog when he got excited. Thankfully, that’s not what they sell. This Pinkberry is all about healthy frozen yogurt.
Now that doesn’t mean you can convert to a diet of cookie-topped swirly goodness at every meal and expect to lose weight, but it is far better for you than what comes out of most Frozen Treat Machines (funny, that was the nickname we gave our Eskimo boyfriend).
Pinkberry is the chain often credited with bringing tart FroYo to the masses in the United States. Unlike most national brands that taste as sweet as ice cream, Pinkberry actually tastes like real, honest-to-goodness yogurt. And that’s because it is.
Featuring live and active cultures and made from nonfat milk and nonfat yogurt, a small 1.5-cup serving of Original Pinkberry clocks in at a scant 100 fat-free calories of melt-in-your-mouth deliciousness. By comparison, an equal portion of Häagen-Dazs Vanilla Ice Cream packs a whopping 810 calories and 54 grams of fat (33 of which are saturated) into the same portion size.
That’s a häart aätack just waiting to häppen.
The Dallas Pinkbery is the first in Texas and the first outside of California and New York. And because we like to have bragging rights here in Big D, we will also be home to the first-ever Chocolate Pinkberry. It’s dark and rich—just like we like our Latino Firefighter Calendar Models.
The store opens tomorrow, so expect to find a frenzied crowd of fanatics lining the streets ready to get their first taste of Pinkberry in Dallas. But trust us, with plenty of fly-by-night copycats already in the Dallas marketplace, you owe it to your taste buds to try the original.
It’s worth the wait.
