New Pinkberry Blueberry Muffin Frozen Yogurt

Fro-yo girl here. Pinkberry launched a new summer flavor, Blueberry Muffin frozen yogurt, and two new Cold Brew Fruit Teas, in Strawberry Hibiscus and Tropical Mango.

While Blueberry Muffin frozen yogurt doesn’t sound like a typical Pinkberry flavor or a summer time flavor, July 11 does happen to be National Blueberry Muffin Day. Blueberry Muffin Frozen Yogurt can be topped with blueberry muffin crumbles and fresh blueberries to create the Blueberry Delight. Yes, blueberry muffin crumbles are a new topping, available for a limited time, at Pinkberry.

I tried to find Blueberry Muffin frozen yogurt on the launch date but I couldn’t locate it in the Los Angeles area. Strange. Even the Sunset and Fuller location, the one that has the most flavors, didn’t have it. The Beverly Hills location didn’t have it either.

I like Blueberry Pinkberry, though I haven’t seen it much since it was introduced in 2015.

* Blueberry Muffin frozen yogurt: I was expecting a sweeter yogurt and was pleasantly surprised that Blueberry Muffin froyo was still tart and tangy. It was light, smooth, refreshing and bursting with blueberry flavor. I didn’t notice any obvious cake/muffin flavor. The blueberry muffin crumbles were soft and fresh.

Recommended toppings: Berries, blueberry muffin crumbles, mochi, and toasted almonds.

I didn’t try the new cold brew fruit teas. They didn’t offer them at the location that I visited. Blueberry Muffin frozen yogurt will be available through July 27, 2017. The cold brew fruit teas will be available through September 7, 2017.

Now that it seems like most new froyo flavors are sweet, I have really come to appreciate the light, tangy flavors that Pinkberry still offers.

You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
