Do you know frozen yogurts ? I tried this dessert for the first time
last year, when I went to Huis Ten Bosch (a famous theme park in
Nagasaki) and I loved it so much that I almost can't eat ice cream
anymore. I was desperate to not be able to eat frozen yogurts in
But, the famous californian brand Pinkberry open its second japanese shop in Fukuoka, inside the Ohori park.
What is better to eat a delicious frozen yogurt inside this lovely park ? I could go few weeks after its opening so let me introduce it !
When the shop is busy, which is often the case on weekends when weather is nice, the store can be quite noisy. It is better is to take ice cream and eat it in the park.
Then you choose from a selection of 8 fruits and go to the sweet topings with chocolate chips sauces and syrups, candies, cookies and so on...You can choose as many topings you want, as long as it fits in the cup (or the cornet) .

Here is what I chose that day: original taste, kiwi, pineapple, chocolate chips, smarties, chocolate cookies and wafle. The taste of the yogurt is quite present and very good, it is also very light. I enjoyed all my topings but I think it would be better without smarties. I chose the smallest cup and the quantity was enough.
Regarding topings, I found that they lacked a bit of fantasy from what I had found in Huis Ten Bosch but there are a lot of choice and everything was very fresh and good quality.
The first time Daisuke was with me and he chose the mango flavor, pineapple, kiwi, banana, mochi, chocolate cereal, chocolate and macha cookies. He thought it was also very good and sufficient.
I tasted a little of his mango yogurt but I really prefer the original taste.
In addition to frozen yogurt, Pinkberry also offers smoothies and fruits /frozen yogurt cups (called "parfait" in Japan) that I don't tried yet.
I have already said, but I am a real fan of this dessert and with hotter days coming little by little, this will become one of my spot !
This month, the brand announced the opening of a third japanese store... in Fukuoka ! It will open in June in the commercial district of Tenjin. It will be successful for sure!
If you are not in Fukuoka, Pinkberry also has a shop in Tokyo.
