When I close my eyes and go to my happy place, I imagine that I am sunbathing on an exotic island somewhere with Ryan Reynolds and Bradley Cooper-type pool boys feeding me this. Ok that's a slight exaggeration…there's only one pool boy. When my friend Megan told me about this new flavor at Pinkberry, I was so excited to try it, I decided to make it my pre-gym snack. It's frozen yogurt…so it's got to be healthy…right…stop judging me!
This is a seasonal summer flavor, and the only gripe I can see anyone having with this tub of deliciousness is that it doesn't taste like Pinkberry really; there's no tartness and I swear it could pass for a lighter version of soft serve ice cream. They suggest these toppings with it: sea salt, caramel, and crepe pieces. I got the salt and the crepe pieces, but naturally my chocolate addiction follows me wherever I go, so I got the dark chocolate crunchy things – yes that's a technical term – crunchy things. Again, please stop judging me.
When the salt pieces hit your tongue followed by the sweet, velvety caramel yogurt…I don't know a better summer treat than that. The salty/sweet combination is awesome if you like that sort of thing (I love it), the crepe pieces add a nice flaky texture and hey, only 10 calories for that topping! Joy. It may not be inherently "Pinkberry", but sometimes change is a good thing. Embrace it. Eat it. Love it.
