Enter Pinkberry

The initial shock having long worn off, I'm still a bit put off by the less-bizarre-than-i'd-like-to-think clash of uber-fad Pinkberry and the stalwart Farmers' Market. Nonetheless, there it is, and apparently, it opened today.

Whatever, schminkberry, I'm going to Scoops.

  1. Hi to all you other Yogurt fans out there. I must confess that I am a yogurt freak myself. I know everyone out there is so in love with Pinkberry but I just DON'T understand why the hell that is.
    1. PINKBERRY basically tastes like frozen sugar water. YUCK! It seems like they don't care about taste and all they care about is making a good ol' buck.
    I went to this new yogurt shop called Frucci located near MT SAC & CAL POLY POMONA. (Check out their website www.frucciyogurt.com under News for their addresses).
    FRUCCI on the other hand really considers taste and ingredients (its rich and you can tell that it has so much less sugar than pinkberry). They really seem to care about people's health and WELL-BEING.
    2. FRUCCI is also CHEAPER than pinkberry. Pinkberry even charges a dollar extra for their green tea (what a rip!!) whereas frucci charges all yogurt flavors equally. You guys need to try the Pina Colada (their most popular flavor).
    3. Frucci's workers give GREAT SERVICE.
    Some of Pinkberry's workers are the worst (very rude and impolite). From my own personal experience i went into the koreatown Pinkberry and asked for three toppings (the blackberry, raspberry, and mochi). I asked, "can i have the mochi?" The female worker harshly and impolitely replied, "It's ricecake." I couldn't really understand at first so I was wondering why she was giving me a horrible face and so I said, "Yea so can i have the mochi please." She then again repeated, "It's ricecake" while rolling her eyes. I was pretty DAMN offended.
    My friend also said she went into a Pinkberry and one of the customers politely asked, "can i have some more yogurt please?" The worker sarcastically said, "oh yea you want some more?" She THREW the medium cup of yogurt on the measuring scale (since pinkberry measures by the ounce) and the scale measured 8 ounces. Since medium is 8 ounces, the worker just handed the cup of yogurt to the female customer without saying a word. My friend said that she could see that customer's face turning pink. Pretty sad.
    Pinkberry fans you can hate me all you want, but to all you yogurt fans out there I RECOMMEND FRUCCI.
