Pinkberry’s Autumn Flavor: Butter Pecan

Fro-yo girl here. Pinkberry’s autumn flavor, butter pecan which they describe as “a light and refreshing reinterpretation of a coveted ice cream flavor. It features a smooth and creamy buttery swirl with hints of maple and roasted pecans that create just the right balance of sweetness.” To accompany the new flavor, they introduced a new topping, caramelized pecans. 

I had a cup of Butter Pecan Pinkberry and the texture is definitely lighter and airier than ice cream. It wasn’t as creamy as I expected but it wasn’t icy either. I liked the lighter texture.The flavor is quite buttery, much more so than nutty. The nuttiness hits you after the buttery notes. It’s a sweet flavor, not as sweet and rich as ice cream but also lacking in real yogurt (tangy) flavor.

I did like the crunchy caramelized pecans. I wish there were other new toppings to complement the butter pecan flavor.

Rumor has it that Hot Chocolate will be Pinkberry's October's new frozen yogurt flavor.

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