crazy bootleg


With all of the brand new condos going up on the Hill, they are also bringing some new restaurants to Broadway besides Pho, Thai food or Indian fare.

I am a huge fan of frozen yogurt so I was patiently waiting for Crazyberry to open. This is the part where I admit that I watch The Hills on MTV and the reason it is relevant is because this past Monday, Lauren and her friend went to Pinkberry. I watched them eat this yogurt in the LA sun and talk about nothing while important things were most likely erased from my memory, only to be filled with curiosity (ie: if Audrina would end up screwing Lauren like Heidi).

Crazyberry is a bootleg Pinkberry. I will say, I never knew about Pinkberry until Monday and have never eaten there but all it takes is one look at the website to see that Pinkberry is the originator. They share the same concept down to the mission of the place. I have read a few reviews about Crazyberry and people are saying that we should be lucky because our "Pinkberry envy prayers" have been answered. Uh, how about someone getting a Pinkberry to open or fuck it a TCBY. This is so Seattle.

Crazyberry took it one step too far, they have a rip off logo that is so similar to Pinkberry, I would not be surprised if they got sued.

I went for the plain yogurt with gummi bears, L. went for the green tea yogurt with pineapple. Both of us got their most likely rip-off signature stick of Pocky. At first I was not into the taste because it is kind of sour but it grew on me. L. was not into it but realized he might have fucked up by not getting chocolate chips with the green tea.

My guess is that we will go back because it is 2 min from our house and like I said I love frozen yogurt. Someone who has eaten at Pinkberry needs to go here and tell me if it is the same thing.

i just drove by here the other day and i was thinking, "damn, is that a yogurt shack like pinkberry?!?" apparently pinkberry is like crack and no one thinks that it's really froyo cause it tastes so good...tho i've never personally sampled it.

i read the nytimes grub street blog, too, and i guess schmancy froyo houses are all the rage in NYC as well.

shoot, FroYo is the new BubbleTea?

Damn. I remember when we moved to spokane from milwaukee and they had all these yogurt places....my mom was so appalled because nothing compares to frozen custard. Then again maybe that is why so many people are overweight in wisconsin.
