Pinkberry: New Salted Caramel and Lychee with Lime

February 4, 2013

Since childhood, I've always considered sweet treats as my comfort food.  I guess the only difference now is that as I grow older and wiser, I tend to lean on healthier options like frozen yogurt rather than ice cream.  I love frozen yogurt so much that I instantly agreed to go along with foodie friends to sample Pinkberry's new flavors.

Pinkberry is an international yogurt brand that begun in West Holywood last 2005.  At present, it has over 270 stores throughout North America, South America, Europe, Middle East and Asia.  Its actually my first time to drop by Pinkberry and I'm very impressed with their product quality.  Their yogurt is made of premium non-fat yogurt without high fructose corn syrup, their fruits are fresh and NOT frozen and they have many choices for toppings too.

They have a lot of base flavors aside from the seasonal ones like I'm sharing with you later on.  They also have various cones, cups in three sizes and a take home tub.  I've been working out lately so I've become quite conscious with the calories of the food I eat and I really appreciate that they include the calorie estimation for their yogurt.

Their counter is bright and inviting.  If you're undecided, you can sample some of their flavors.

Lychee with Lime Yogurt

Pinkberry gave us a paper mat that serves as our guide on what topping should go with our Lychee with Lime Yogurt.  Although I really loved the refreshing flavor of the Lychee alone and even better with lime, I participated with glee.

The Lychee with Lime Yogurt topped with Honey Almond Granola is a good experience because it adds a light crispy to the light base.

The Lychee with Lime Yogurt topped with Mochi is creates a chewy-smooth alternating pattern that's quite enjoyable for me.

The Lychee with Lime Yogurt topped with Toasted Almond is a a bit similar to the Honey Almond Granola but the almond is more bold here and its more of a nutty crunch than light crisp.

The Lychee with Lime Yogurt topped with Coconut Shreds is great because it doesn't contrast the light flavor of the base in anyway but instead perfectly complements it by adding an awesome texture.

Salted Caramel

As we were handed out the Salted Caramel Pinkberry with their respective toppings, I could see the excitement in the eyes of my fellow foodies.  Unlike me, they prefer this sweeter and heavier variant.

If you find it too sweet, add some sea salt caramel to bring balance.  That's what I did with my Salted Caramel with almond, sea salt and milk chocolate shavings.  It was pretty good but I'm just not much of a milk chocolate fan.

On the other hand, I just loved every but of my Salted Caramel with dark chocolate crisps, bananas and caramel syrup.  Okay, I can go even without the extra caramel syrup but the dark chocolate crispy and the banana duo was surprisingly spectacular in terms of taste and texture!

Salted Caramel Cone 3 oz (115 php)
Once the topping activity was over, we were given our Salted Caramel Cone.   I love their waffle cones so I'll probably order cone on my next visit.

Salted Caramel Shake
When the Salted Caramel Shake was served, my first impression is that it would be overwhelmingly sweet for my tastebuds.  But, upon first sip, it was really good!  It's a slightly tangy yogurt shake with a light caramel taste just enough to counter the tarty flavor.  And, the caramel syrup is mostly at the bottom so if you feel that you want it a bit more of the caramel taste, just mix it a bit then sip. 


Overall, I had a great first impression with Pinkberry.  It's definitely the best frozen yogurt I've had here in the Metro.  I'll surely come back and try more of their offerings.  Or, better yet, take home a tub for the family since we're all frozen yogurt fans.  I know a lot of people say that frozen yogurt may been the in thing of yesterday.  But to me, frozen yogurt like ice cream, cakes and other delicious treats are timeless. =D
