Pinkberry opens its fifth and newest store at SM Megamall offering its famous line of premium handcrafted frozen yogurt to communities surrounding the mall. And just in time for summer too.
Conveniently located beside the ice skating rink at SM Megamall's new Fashion Hall, one can go for a swirl on the ice followed by a refreshing swirl at Pinkberry. Or just skip the ice and go straight to Pinkberry for a whole new yogurt experience...
First opened in West Hollywood, California in 2005, Pinkberry now has over 240 stores in 17 countries. In 2011, Pinkberry launched its first store in Asia at Greenbelt 5. Pinkberry Philippines now has 5 stores, with the newest at SM Megamall.
Pinkberry offers real fruit toppings, and not preserved fruits, including fresh blueberries, strawberries, mangoes, honeydew melon, watermelon, peaches, kiwifruit, and pineapple. Add twenty more toppings, including coconut, granola, shaved milk chocolate and even Almond Roca and Balsamic Glaze.
Pinkberry's returning favorites and new flavors were then sampled to shoppers, including Pomegranate, Peach, Strawberry, Green Tea and Grapefruit flavored yogurt. Made from the highest quality ingredients, including real non-fat yogurt and fresh non-fat milk, Pinkberry has a distinct light, clean taste with a perfect balance of tart and sweet. The flavored line of yogurt add another layer of flavor, blending well with the signature tartness of Pinkberry's yogurt.
Sampling each flavor, from Pinkberry's classic Original to one of its newest flavors, each variant with Pinkberry's signature smooth and velvety texture. And I was then ready to go for a large serving...
Pinkberry's Original Yogurt (P 265/Large with toppings), topped with fresh strawberries, blueberries, kiwifruit, Almond Roca, cookies and cream, shaved milk chocolate, and chocolate chips. Pinkberry's wide range of toppings include real fresh fruits, not canned, frozen or preserved in syrup or water; premium dry toppings (including mixed nuts, fudge brownie bites, cheesecake bites, cereal, coconut, fruity pebbles, graham crust, honey almond granola, organic fruity gummy bears, waffle cookies, and toasted almonds), bold liquid toppings (chocolate sauce, balsamic glaze, watermelon puree, caramel, pure and natural honey, and 100% pure pomegranate juice), as well as indulgent luxe toppings (like milk chocolate crunch, peanut butter crunch, and lemon cookie crunch). With Pinkberry's wide selection of fresh and premium toppings, you can easily customize your very own yogurt creation.
The refreshing tartness of the fruits are perfectly balanced by the premium chocolate toppings and rounded out by the smooth and rich handcrafted yogurt. A refreshing tartness and a subtle sweetness combine for that perfect yogurt fix.
Next, I go for Pinkberry's new Pomegranate flavored Yogurt with fresh kiwifruit, strawberries, and blueberries (P 155 Small with toppings), topped with fresh strawberries, blueberries, and kiwifruit for a fruity punch. The fresh fruit toppings make a big difference, adding a layer of natural sweetness without overwhelming the tartness of the fresh, handcrafted yogurt for balanced flavors. Made from 100% California grown pure pomegranate juice with refreshing, bold and tangy notes that's great as is, even better with one of Pinkberry's fresh toppings. Pinkberry's new Pomegranate yogurt is also best paired with blueberry, coconut and mochi; or blueberry, shaved milk, and mochi; or yogurt chips and granola.
Then, I go for Pinkberry's Fresh Fruit Parfait (P 195), with fresh strawberries, blueberries, honeydew lemon, honey almond granola, Almond Roca, and toasted almonds in between swirls of Pinkberry's Original yogurt. Mix it all up and enjoy scoop after scoop of rich yet balanced flavors. And the contrasting textures in every bite make this a winner with the crunchy granola, toasted almonds, and Almond Roca pairing well with the fresh fruits and the velvety smooth yogurt.
And finaly, Pinkberry's Green Tea Smoothie (P 150 Small), a refreshing yogurt shake that's just perfect for summer. The earthy and nutty flavors balance the refreshingly tart yogurt for another winning combination. You also have the option to blend in fresh fruits for even more flavor. Pinkberry's other smoothie flavors include Mango Pineapple, Pineapple Coconut, Salted Caramel, Chocolate Banana, and Chocolate Cookie variants. Seasonal flavors include Strawberry Banana, Strawberry Kiwi and Mixed Berries. And here's the cool part. All Pinkberry Smoothies are blended with Light Agave, a natural sweetener, instead of sugar. Now you can indulge without worrying about a spike in blood sugar levels or that unpleasant sugar rush.
Pinkberry reinvents the yogurt experience with its line of handcrafted yogurt and impressive selection of fresh, premium toppings. Whether you go for a Fruit Cup, a Smoothie, a Parfait, or a Swirl with a variety of fresh toppings, Pinkberry's got you covered. Quality yogurt products, outstanding service and Pinkberry cheer, just can't beat that. Go grab your own swirl at Pinkberry, now open at SM Megamall.
