Pinkberry Review and Giveaway

I'm a big lover of frozen yogurt. I love how light, whipped, and fluffy it is. It's cool and creamy and tastes heavenly.



Pinkberry is a franchise of upscale frozen dessert restaurants headquartered in Los Angeles, California. There are currently nearly 100 stores, mostly located in Southern California, 14 in New York City, New York, two in New Orleans, Louisiana, two in Denver, Colorado, one in Atlanta, Georgia, one in Nashville, Tennessee, two in Charlotte, North Carolina, two in Massachusetts, four in Texas, one in Fairfield, Connecticut, one in Fairfax, Virginia, and two in Hawaii. International locations include one in Mexico City, several in the Middle East, and two in Lima, Peru.

Pinkberry's menu consists of original, green tea, pomegranate, coffee, and a few seasonal favors which include coconut, passion fruit and chocolate flavored frozen yogurt style desserts. Other products offered include shaved ice, with fresh fruit or green tea, a fruit parfait and two types of smoothies. Pinkberry also offers many toppings to put on your frozen yogurt such as chocolate curls, raspberries (and a host of other fruits), fruity pebbles, brownie bites, and more.

I have only had Pinkberry a handful of times, but I really enjoy it each time I go. I love the pomegrante and original flavors with either strawberries or chocolate curls on it. It's excellent!

Well tonight it was my lucky night to have Pinkberry again! A man from Pinkberry knocked on my door and I knew that sweet frozen treat behind my front door had a date with my stomach :) I've never had frozen yogurt delivered to my house before and it was a fun experience. I know what you all are thinking though, what did Sammi get? WHAT WAS DELIVERED!? Brace yourselves for the deliciousness...

I received a special Cupid's Swirl Swirly Gram (a large container of chocolate frozen yogurt with brownie bites, raspberries, and shaved milk chocolate included) and a $10 Pinkberry gift card!

(A shot of heaven on earth!)

(You guys are lucky that you even had a chance to see this picture before I devoured it, haha)

For the first time ever this Valentine’s Day, Pinkberry frozen yogurt is introducing Swirly Grams, the perfect way to make hearts swirl this Valentine’s with a sweet masterpiece that won’t be forgotten. The Swirly Gram comes in chocolate (accompanied with raspberries, brownie bites, and milk chocolate shavings), original (paired with toasted almonds, strawberries and dark chocolate crisps), and blood orange (which comes with blood orange pieces and a waffle cookie).

A Swirly Gram is a gift of Pinkberry frozen yogurt or a Pinkberry gift card beautifully wrapped, decorated with balloons, ribbons and hearts, and hand-delivered right to the home or office. Customers who wish to send a treat to loved ones in another city or prefer shopping online can send a Pinkberry Swirly Gram online through Pinkberry’s website, www.pinkberry.com/swirlygram (balloons not included for online orders).

The frozen yogurt was outstanding! It had a great chocolate taste, but was not overly rich or sweet. It was enough to curtail your sweet tooth though. The cool, creaminess of the yogurt was refreshing and perfect. This frozen yogurt would be a great treat for a hot summer night, but it's still awesome even in winter! Everything I received was extremely fresh. The brownie bites were chewy and moist, the raspberries juicy, plump and brimming with flavor, and the milk chocolate shavings sweet and crunchy. This was a fabulous way to end my night.

Do something nice for your a family member or significant other this Valentine's Day by showing your affection with a Swirly Gram from Pinkberry!
