Pinkberry in Canada!

by Jen on Friday, July 22, 2011

{fashion bloggers all around- Jen, Melissa, Alicia, Alex and myself}

Last night I had the opportunity to attend an event to celebrate the launch of Canada's very first Pinkberry store, which has just opened in the Village at West Vancouver's Park Royal Shopping Centre. And what an event it was: free "froyo" with all the toppings, sparkling wine, and great company-- complete with a live performance by Bonnie Dune, whose drummer is none other than infamous BC-boy Cory Monteith (better known as "Finn" from Glee!).

{toppings galore. my favourites: mochi, blackberries and blueberries- yum!}

I was impressed by the array of flavours and toppings there were to choose from, seeing that I had been used to seemingly much less from other Vancouver frozen yogurt joints in the past. The yogurt itself was just tart enough and the fruit toppings were fresh and juicy. I now understand the "cult following" behind this brand and am thrilled that such great frozen yogurt is available just a short drive from downtown Vancouver!

{i heard that some lined up for over 2 hours for their free frozen yogurt- that's dedication!}

{thought Glee fans might appreciate this- I know I did!}

A big thanks to Pinkberry Canada and Lisa Kwong of Tara Parker Tait PR for a great party, RF Productions for the event shots and my sweet friend Questa for helping me snap some photos!


YUM! We don't have that in Europe :(

Dude, why don't we have ANY fromezen yogurht stores around here? I'm dying to try this! The toppings looks soooo good and fun! x

Aw, you all look adorable! I have heard other bloggers raving about Pinkberry, so it's exciting that they're making their way to Canada! I'm not sure we even have as single fro-yo place here... a couple of icecream places might sell it, but not a dedicated fro-yo shop! Those toppings look & sound amazing! Hope you have a lovely weekend, darlin'!

It was so great seeing you and meeting Questa last night. Mmm frozen yogurt. I need to stop by the Park Royal Village more often.

FINN is so cute! and so is your jacket! have a great weekend!

What a great event! I heart froyo. We have lots of froyo places (Yogurtland, Tutti Fruitti, and Orange Leaf, just to name a few...) on the island, but we don't have a Pink Berry. I've always wanted to try their froyo. mmmmm.

And you look FABULOUS, Jen. But then again, you always do. Muah!

xx Love & Aloha

I keep hearing so much about this Pinkberry! It's hard to believe it's that much better than any other yoghurt place, but I guess I'll have to make the trek and find out one day! :)

It looks like you girls had so much fun at this event, and you all looked amazing- I adore your Rachel Roy blouse, it looks amazing every time you wear it (and especially with that pink jacket!) I love the photos of all you lovely ladies together. So beautiful :)
PS: My hair is naturally very thick, but a lot of teasing and hair spray goes into my giant bun. I think I'll be doing a tutorial soon!

Yummmmmy! Looks like such a great event...and that you had a fabulous time:) I can't say that I have EVER had Pinkberry, if you can believe that.

So cool the dude from Glee was playing the drums...ha, I am not a HUGE follower of the show...but certainly know who he is.

All in all a very fun time...and you look adorable as ALWAYS my dear.
