Pinkberry Turns 2 + Blogger's Tasting Event!

Last December 12, Pinkberry Philippines invited us over at Pinkberry Greenbelt 5 for a blogger tasting event! It's just an intimate event where in we're more introduced to the brand and we also got to try their new flavors Peanut Butter and Salted Caramel! Soooo yummy I swear! By the way, Pinkberry just turned 2 this year, so yay! 

Before anything else, let me tell you more about Pinkberry. :)

Pinkberry is a handcrafted yogurt bar that uses real non-fat yogurt and real non-fat milk to provide customers with the best tasting yogurt experiences.

Pinkberry is the original tart and tangy frozen yogurt that is the perfect balance of tart and sweet, resulting in a light, refreshing and clean taste that is truly craveable.

They opened their first store in West Hollywood, CA in 2005.
When they first opened, they only served two flavors:  original and green tea.  Today they have over 18 flavors that rotate seasonally and have become a pop culture icon.
Pinkberry is one of the fastest growing retail brands globally with over 240 stores across 17 countries.
Pinkberry Philippines is the first store in Asia. Greenbelt 5 is our flagship store which opened last December 7, 2011. They now have 4 stores which are located in GB5, ATC, SM Aura and Power Plant Mall, Rockwell. 


Check out their toppings bar! I really had a hard time choosing! 

Culinary inspired, Pinkberry offers over 30 thoughtfully selected premium toppings. Their toppings are categorized as DRY, FRUIT, LUXE and LIQUID. Each topping is selected to provide a taste and texture combination to perfectly complement their signature frozen yogurt.  Pinkberry serves fresh fruits, their fruit is never canned, frozen or sitting in water.  


We had a quick game to make the tasting event more interesting! We were asked to close our eyes while they hand us different mixes of their new flavors and we must guess which mix is the one we tried.
I got the peanut butter chocolate crunch! My favorite so far!!:)
Here are the other choices Pinkberry made for the Peanut Butter Flavor!


PEANUT BUTTER PINKBERRY

  1. Newest offering for 2013 is Peanut Butter Pinkberry.
  2. Peanut Butter is sweet, salty and sensational.
  3. It tastes like real peanut butter because it is made with real peanut butter.
  4. Peanut Butter Trivia:
    1. Peanuts are not actually nuts at all! They are legumes – like beans, peas and lentils.
    2. Americans eat three pounds of peanut butter per person every year – enough PB to coat the floor of the Grand Canyon.
    3. Africans ground peanuts into stews as early as the 1400s; Chinese have crushed peanuts into creamy sauces for centuries; and American Civil War soldiers dined on “peanut porridge.” What do you use peanut for?

SALTED CARAMEL PINKBERRY

1.     We’re bringing back a crowd favorite for our 2nd anniversary and the holiday season: Salted Caramel Pinkberry.
2.     Salted Caramel is indulgent, delicious and complex.
3.     It perfectly combines sweet and salty flavor notes to deliver a one-of-a-kind taste experience.
4.     Salted Caramel Trivia:
a.     The combination of salt & caramel has long enchanted French and American chefs, but recently become one of the rare flavors that work its way from an elite culinary obsession to the American foodie market.
b.    Two trends also helped Salted Caramel rise to the top. First was the rise of specialty salt itself, with French fleur de sel, sea salt from the Maldon marshes in England and Hawaiian red salt turning up at supermarkets.
Second, salted caramel also owes a great deal of gratitude to dulce de leche, the caramel made from cooked milk that is popular in South America and Mexico. Dulce de leche is what brought caramel back. Without it, you wouldnt have salted caramels popularity.

Salted Caramel Offerings

1.     Salted Caramel yogurt with toppings
             A. Salted Caramel + Sea Salt + Caramel + Crispy Crepes
            Salted Caramel Pinkberry is best paired with Sea Salt (to add complexity and balance), Caramel (drizzled on top             to enhance flavor and add a touch of indulgence and Crispy Crepes (toasted crepe flakes that add flavor and                      crunch).

            B. Salted Caramel + Shaved Milk Chocolate + Toasted Almonds + Sea Salt
            C. Salted Caramel + Bananas + Dark Chocolate Crisps + Caramel

2.     Salted Caramel Shake

It’s a one-handed Pinkberry indulgence with Caramel and Sea Salt as recommended toppings.
