This weekend, i took a holiday to New York. i was compelled to try pink berry. i have heard a lot of people say its delish, and a few people have told me it sucks. there was a line outside when i arrived. this is always a good sighn. the menu appeared to consist of 3 ice cream flavors, the original, coffee and green tea. um so being confused by the ever so strange menu board, i asked the cashier whats good here, and she said the original. so i got a small original with strawberries and raspberries. usually, if i get a topping its sprinkles. i never trust the fruit at ice cream places. but the fruit here was a big deal judging how everyone had their ice cream smothered in kiwis, strawberries and blueberries. this place obviously has a cult following of skinny NY-ers. ok so while waiting behind a bunch of other pushy new yorkers (still getting over the fact that the socks won the world series, its ok guys, its just karma.) i noticed the nutritional facts. basically it is the healthiest ice cream on the planet. 70 calories per 1/2 cup and no fat whatsoever. the ice cream was interesting to say the least. at first the bite was good. had the right color and texture i have come to expect from my soft serve. however there was a pungent after taste. a mildly fruity pungent after taste. it wasn't bad, just interesting. the fruit however was delish. i have never enjoyed such high quality toppings. overall, its not remotely close to J.P. licks, but its the best diet ice cream i have ever had.
