Pinkberry Event Catering

I've reviewed Pinkberry a number of times before, but always with visits to the actual Pinkberry stores.  In summary: Pinkberry is decent, not necessarily worth the price, they have some good flavors, and a variety of toppings.

Now, you may be saying, "Julie, it is Monday.  You aren't supposed to be doing a froyo review on a Monday!" (because I know, you pay attention and make sure that I'm writing about the correct topics on the scheduled days, right?)

Well, this review is about Pinkberry, and about their froyo, yes, but, it is about their catering, which, IS a Monday topic!

For catering events, they bring the froyo pre-dispensed, since they obviously can't show up with a froyo machine.  This pretty much changes everything.  Froyo machines dispense soft serve, and once the product is stored in a freezer for transport, it gets much harder.  And, half the fun of going to Pinkberry is picking toppings, so that fun is lost too.

So the conclusion on Pinkberry catering?  Lackluster, but really, it is an entirely different thing from the shops themselves.
Strawberry with Rainbow Sprinkles.
The froyo was incredibly tart, and somehow not very strawberry flavored.  I did not like it.  It was also very hard, as it was being served at an event, not fresh out of the dispenser.  It is clear that freezing it in their portable freezers really changes the consistency, as their yogurt is usually pretty creamy and one of the best aspects.

The rainbow sprinkles were not very generously applied, and are perhaps the most boring topping they could have picked.  I guess no one dislikes sprinkles, but come on, toppings are half the fun!
