not sure if any of you have read this. i find it some what ludicrous but i’m sure it’d interest a lot of you. pinkberry is being sued. why? because it’s apparently not yogurt. i don’t like the place but the lawsuit is stupid; i think some guy is just trying to find another way to make a quick buck.

what makes yogurt yogurt?

bacterial cultures.

apparently, although pinkberry’s fat free, “. . . the frozen treats don’t have the bacterial cultures that make yogurt good for you.” so pretty much it’s a smoothie.

here’s a link to the story on abc7.

my main argument against it of course is that you’re paying 5 bucks for ingredients that probably cost less than a buck to make. it’s just not worth it.

on an unrelated note, apparently, according to wikipedia “The (boba) trend in the United States started by Lollicup in the city of San Gabriel, California and quickly spread throughout Southern California.”

who knew?
