And so I made it a mission to try Pinkberry this time! Though I was contemplating whether or not to try some at the very last minute (my inner scrooge was debating whether this would be the same stuff as yogen fruz but more expensive), I'm extremely glad I did!
They let you try the flavours they have while standing in line - like self-serve frozen yogurt places! - and so you wouldn't end up getting a yogurt you wouldn't like. I tried cherry, which was sweet and tart just as described, and green tea, light and fresh. In the end, I chose green tea in a waffle cone (which is surprisingly cheaper than a small cup!) with mochi.
Now, for those of you that know me personally, you'll know that I take an insane amount of photos of my food before consuming it. Aaaaannnddd frozen yogurt usually ends up really melty by the end of this lengthy process.
But this Pinkberry one didn't!! The yogurt was still firm and the waffle cone wasn't soggy at all! I was just as amazed taste-wise: the yogurt was light and tart and still had a hint of green tea flavour without being overly sweet like Menchies or Yogurty's - simply put, pure satisfaction! The mochi was also smaller, firmer, and chewier than the powdery, starchy type that other froyo joints carry.
Best of all, my waffle cone only totalled a measly $3.54 after SPC. Oh yeah~ XD
By the end of my Metrotown trip, I had visited a two-level H&M and Forever 21 (black-and-white, punk, and grunge are HUGE trends for fall) and received an EXO poster from my uncle =)
After dinner with my first uncle and his family, my third uncle took me out to the Richmond Night Market near River Rock Casino.
At one of the stalls, I spotted some of the highly-raved-about Jump from Paper bags that keep popping up on fashion blogs!These ones are probably unauthentic though, seeing as they were selling for one third of the normal retail price. They were still cute though, making me ponder whether I should have gotten one for myself after all...
