Pinkberry's frozen yogurts

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 Fukuoka.
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 !

Fukuoka's Pinkberry
Pinkberry is located one the first floor of the new boathouse in Ohori Park, which opened in February. Entirely decorated with glass and wood, the shop is warm and pleasant. There are two tables for 2 people with comfortable chairs, a large table for 8, a counter facing the lake and a terrace with a few tables that offer a beautiful view of the lake and its water activities.
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.

The specialty is frozen yogurts. This icy dessert has a good yoghurt taste and is lighter than ice cream. Order is made by a specific process. You start by choosing the size of the cup and the flavor. There is a choice between original, chocolate hazelnut, strawberry, mango, pomegranate and green tea.
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.

Prices starts at 360 yen for the smallest cup whose quantity is sufficient so it is not so expensive. The price does not change depending on weight or number of topings which is appreciable.

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.
