A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

I love Pinkberry. I first had it in New York City a few years ago. Here’s the idea: “Why does Pinkberry taste so delicious?
Our frozen yogurt recipe is top secret, but our Swirly Goodness is made with real nonfat milk and real nonfat yogurt that has been certified by the National Yogurt Association to carry the Live & Active Cultures seal. Our hand-crafted flavors, daily cut fresh fruit toppings and carefully selected dry toppings are specifically designed to harmonize with Pinkberry frozen yogurt, offering an incomparably refreshing, light and craveable taste.” It has 100 calories per 1/2 cup. Who doesn’t love that?

So when I found Berryline in Boston, I was so excited! It is modeled after Pinkberry. Berryline has no fat and is 25 calories per ounce. (Ingredients: skim milk, yogurt, cane sugar, emulsifiers & stabilizers, flavors as needed) It was voted Best of the New by the Boston Globe Magazine in 2008 and was written up by the Harvard Crimson newspaper.

Pinkberry’s original yogurt is available all the time. Note: it is NOT vanilla. It has a tangy sweet taste to it. They also have two other rotating flavors. You can check the website to see what they are, they vary by location. Today’s Fenway flavors were tiramisu and pistachio. All the flavors have that sweet/tangy after taste like the original does, which can make the flavors not taste true to form. If you are thinking that the pistachio Berryline is going to taste like pistachio ice cream you will be disappointed. They have tons of toppings: fresh fruit (strawberry, raspberry, pineapple, blueberry, banana, blackberry and mango), nuts (almonds, walnuts, pecans), and other choices (chocolate chips, graham crackers, white chocolate chips, fruity pebbles, toffee, reeses pieces, waffle cone, graham cracker and mochi).

The Harvard Square location has a few stools and tables to sit on, but most of the time, in the warm weather, people just sit on the curb outside. The Fenway location has even fewer seats, I think there are 2 tables. Make sure to get a frequent buyer card-they’re free, buy 10 yogurts and get one free. A small (5 oz.) is $2.75, a medium (8 oz.) is $3.40, a large (12 oz.) is $4.90 and a pint (16 oz.) is $5.40. One topping is $1, two toppings are $1.60, and three toppings are $2.

My personal favorite is original with strawberries and white chocolate chips. The pistachio was good but it didn’t have a strong pistachio taste (as shown above:pistachio paired with graham cracker and waffle cone). Other choices are/have been rose, taza chocolate, pumpkin, apple pie, guava, green tea, peanut butter, banana, and caramel.
