Almost Pinkberry

When I traveled to L.A. with A.A. I got my first taste of Pinkberry, and I’ve been craving it ever since. I had been banking on my next visit to NYC to give me my next Pinkberry, but a few days ago I was alerted that a knockoff popped up on Thayer Street. I had to see if it had the same crack-like qualities as P-Berry.

The store had a nice minimalist feel to it & the topping choices were similar, though Captain Crunch was replaced by Fruity Pebbles and a cooler full of fun Japanese drinks will surely attract Asian Culture Fetishists.

I decided on Original with Pineapple with Chocolate Chips topping and I got something that was more Frozen Yogurty than Pinkberry, but still sour enough to be interestingly odd and palate pleasing. I will be going back, that is until Pinkberry issues them a cease and desist.

Juniper = Almost Pinkberry

P.S. I will still be going to the real deal when I am within 50 miles of one, so maybe they should just leave our PVD version alone.
