Pinkberry, I am Under Your Spell.

I was not having a great morning, and that not so great morning turned into an awful afternoon.  But lucky for me, the husband knew just how what would cheer me up: Cupcakes.
We drove to Arden, parked in the cramped lot, got out & started walking through the parking lot (and I mean through. This Sacramento heat & air is so thick that it feels like you have to physically push your way through it). That is when I saw it. The fabled Pinkberry.
On a whim we changed our minds and passed up the cupcake for some fro-yo.
The inside of Pinkberry on Arden Way gives off a really calm feel. All pale mossy green and white, with flooring that looks like it's made of a million tiny pebbles, with sunny orange & yellow accents.  Super inviting.You can tell by this choice of decor that it's based in SoCal- it reminds me of the beach in early Summer. The staff was really helpful & nice, taking time to explain everything to us & offering samples of their fro-yo flavors.

You can get fro-yo in a handful of flavors like original, pomegranate, coconut, mango chocolate, as well as flavors like watermelon than change depending on the season.
They've also got smoothies & parfaits, and you can even get your dessert in a cone if you'd like.
There are tons of toppings to choose from including fresh fruit, cereal, cookies, nuts & syrups.  
The Arden location is happy to give you as much as you'd like in the way of toppings and you still pay the advertised price.  

Jude & I both opted for the original flavor yogurt which tastes just like a creamy Greek yogurt that's been frozen. This is the real deal. I don't think I have ever had REAL fro-yo before. Whatever those other places are serving is NOT yogurt.  I got fresh raspberries & honey roasted sunflower seeds while Jude chose kiwi & strawberry.  It was so good, I don't think I can accurately describe how yummy it was.
Like the shop itself, the fro-yo was fresh, it was clean, & it was really, really inviting. I hope to be back very, very soon.

Pinkberry is located at 2100 Arden Way #195, Sacramento CA 95825
There's also a newly opened location in Loehmann's Plaza at 2441 Fair Oaks Blvd #120, Sacramento CA 95825

    Maybe someday if I ever make it over to Oregon and Cali, I'll have to visit. :)
