So I had heard about this place for a long time. Now I respect a good frozen yogurt as much as the next person, but to wait in line for like an hour was a bit much for me. When I saw they finally had opened locations other than the one in WeHo, I decided to give it a gander.
I can only say one thing...overrated. Don't get me wrong, it was good, but I certainly would not wait more than 10 minutes in line for it and it practically broke my bank account it was so pricey. I think this place is hot now, but its exapnding too much so the magic of "discovering" it will be gone. I remember Penguins Yogurt was hot in the 80's here in LA and now most of them have closed save for a few. Then in the 90's it was Krispy Kreme. Dare I say the parallel for the Oughties is Pinkberry? I dare.

It's TCBY with cereal
I'm still mad they closed the Dairy Queen in NoHo

true dat. Nothing special as far as frozen yogurt goes, although the decor is nice, it reminded me of Coconut Grove in Miami...
When is LA going to get a decent Gelateria??? Hazelnut Gelato. Mmmm

Loves me some Pinkberry, but I agree, probably a fad food. I actually started a thread a few months ago about it, but no one had tried it yet. I live in WeHo and yeah...Pinkberry (and their imitators) are sprouting up all over the place, which will be good in the summer though, when it's hot as hell....and I won't have to stand in a 30 minute line for it's extreme icy-cold goodness.

It's all about the cupcake now.

Or oddly flavored ice cream/gelato. I like Scoops on the East side of Hollywood (Heliotrope at Melrose). $2 and Ty, the owner, is very generous with the samples.
Pinkberry's for tourists.

You're right about Sprinkles. Its pretty amazing how much better it tastes than a normal cupcake. I can only imagine the amount of butter in the frosting though! I hear they are looking to expand beyond their current location from friends but I haven't seen anything to back it up yet.

I love Sprinkles. I go to the one in Newport Beach to get these for special occasions.
