For 10 years, Pinkberry has been heaping cereal and candy toppings on to its yogurt-ish frozen desserts, often not far from a Cold Stone Creamery, where employees folded some of those same ingredients into ice cream, possibly while singing a song. Now it looks like the two brands will be under the same corporate umbrella. [More]
Pinkberry, the chain of California-based yogurt shops that inspires cultish behavior in its followers, was co-founded by one Young Lee, a stylish 47-year-old entrepreneur with expensive taste (he apparently owns a bunch of fancy cars including a Rolls-Royce Phantom and a Ferrari) who is currently a defendant in a criminal proceeding in which he is alleged to have hit a homeless man with a tire iron.
To thank Kelly for pointing out an error on their website, Pinkberry offered to come to her office bearing “a few yogurts and toppings for some of the hard working people that you work with.” What error could prompt such an over-the-top apology? Kelly tried to visit two separate Pinkberry locations at 11:30 a.m., which Pinkberry’s website lists as the store’s opening time. But! The store’s don’t open until *gasp* noon!
Oh, great. Here we go again: ABC7 New York has video of several mice running happily around the inside of trendier-than-thou frozen yogurt spot Pinkberry, located on the Upper East Side. The footage is gross, gross enough that it would dissuade us from eating there, but the Pinkberry faithful just didn’t seem to care when ABC7 showed them the footage and asked for comment:
We alerted customers about the mice. But today’s discovery didn’t affect the line that did continue to snake out the door.
