Although I frequented Metrotown quite a bit during the summer, I don't really know why I never visited Pinkberry. It's probably because I often eat too much and then shop... so I'm never really that hungry. Prior to our dinner in Burnaby, we came here for dessert. Naturally.
Instead of the typical self-serve froyo or pay by weight froyo common to Vancouver (at places such as Qoola and Scoop), Pinkberry is a fully-operated froyo chain. Three sizes are available and toppings are "unlimited" until it fills the brim basically. It's also possible to get more than one flavour; we shared the chocolate hazelnut and original in a medium size.
The original froyo was really creamy and smooth. I enjoyed it a lot, and it's probably one of my favourites now. The chocolate hazelnut felt like soft serve ice cream -- a bit different from the froyo I'm used to, but Rick enjoyed it.
Toppings wise, the mochi was fresh and soft. I enjoyed the wafer and cookie options that aren't as available at other froyo places. Overall, Pinkberry is quite delicious and although it isn't possible to get only a small dab of yogurt for $2 (which is what I usually do at Menchie's), it's a better bang for your buck.
