Pinkberry (rip-off?) Fri, 03/14/08 5:26 PM (permalink)
OK, so a new Pinkberry (chain) opened in my area in NYC. I tried it last week with mixed reactions, but I felt like something cold so I tried again today.

So I ordered a SMALL (and, it is small) coffee flavored "frozen dessert or whatever it is) with one topping (crushed oraos) and the guy said $5.95.

I looked at him funny and he said, well, it's $2.95 for small, but you ordered coffee flavor (they have only 3 flavors: original coffee and green tea) which is "extra" $1.00, the a topping is "extra 1.00"{ and then tax (and who knows what else.)

Something took me over and my hand grabbed the $10 bill I had given him right out of his hand and I walked out. This was visceral, no thought. I couldn't do $6.00 for a small treat.

I am drawing my limit. I can't believe people are forking over $ like this. It's like "Ask and They will Pay." The stores been crowded every time I pass it.

And, gotta say, I don't think the product's that good, either.
