Fro-yo girl here. Fall’s must have Pinkberry flavors are Pumpkin, Blood Orange, and Pear. “Pear – crisp and light, it’s the pear-fect fall flavor. Blood Orange – an exquisite tart citrus made with real blood orange puree. Pumpkin – a creamy version of the perfect pumpkin pie with just the right amount of nutmeg – it’s delicious any way you slice it.”
I’ve had Pumpkin and Blood Orange at Pinkberry before but I haven’t seen Pear before. The Pear was my favorite flavor of the three. It was light and smooth, plus it tasted like the tangy Original flavor. I could definitely taste the pear (tasted like Anjou pears, crisp, sweet and tangy). I liked how the yogurt flavor wasn’t overwhelmed by the pear flavor. The sweet Pumpkin flavor had a strong cinnamon flavor, the spices were stronger than the pumpkin flavor. It reminded me of the Cinnamon Churro Pinkberry flavor only with some pumpkin flavor. Blood Orange had too much blood orange concentrate; it overwhelmed the yogurt flavor.
There’s a new vegan, dairy-free, no sugar added flavor too: Peach Passion. Peach Passion combines peach, pear and apricot flavors. It tasted mainly like peach but muted by the other flavors, particularly the apricot. It’s sweet though no sugar is added. I don’t like apricot and it had a bitter aftertaste. Dairy-free mango was better.
The cinnamon streusel topping that I like so much is back and it’s a perfect complement to the Pumpkin froyo flavor.
You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
