Pinkberry....Overrated??

I'm seeing a lot of the American Express commercials featuring Pinkberry and while I like the story of their success and how they just exploded so fast, I'm just not digging their product.

There's lines out the door for it here in NYC. Eh...I dunno. Not really interested in waiting on a line to try it. I think there's a least 2 stores here now. Cute name!!

LOL, I had to look it up too, I've never heard of it. I thought it might be a pink version of the Blackberry for the Susan G. Komen foundation or something...

TCBY made a big splash like that back in the early '80s. Seems destined to be primarily a "coast" phenomenon, I'm not sure people will stand in line for blocks in the fly-over states.

We have it at one of the local malls now, but I've only seen a few people inside when I've walked by.

Interesting I've yet to see an AMEX commercial featuring Pinkberry...yet they are insanely overrated. It's good, don't get me wrong, but for $5 I'm going to need more than barely a scoop of frozen yogurt [only 2 flavors of yogurt] and three toppings, hardly a teaspoon of each topping. Come to San Diego. We've got something called Yogurt World, where they charge you based upon each ounce of yogurt, so if you want less or more, you pay less or more respectively. Also, tons of different kinds of yogurt as well as toppings. It's just this craze over something that's healthier, I think people are thinking it's too many calories to walk into Baskin Robbins...

My friends who've tried it all said that it's really good, but every time I walk by one, there's always a line out the door, and I'm just not that patient.

I really like Pinkberry. However, I'm not standing in a long line. I have located at two that don't have lines. So, I go there.

Yep, Malibu Yogurt in Malibu even has more to offer than Pinkberry.
