Gluten Free Toppings at Pinkberry

Well this was an unexpected surprise.  I visited Pinkberry at the Farmer's Market by The Grove to check out the chain's new chocolate flavor and was shocked to see the topping below:

That's right, Pinkberry is now offering gluten free chocolate cake crumbles as a topping!  Cross contamination issues may come up since they are stocked next to other toppings, but I gave them a whirl to try them out.  I made sure to ask whether the spoon they used was dedicated to the gluten free chocolate cake crumbles, and the polite swirler answered affirmatively.  By the way, do you call a Pinkberry worker a swirler?

I ordered up a half chocolate, half pomegranate with the gluten free chocolate cake crumbles and yogurt chips.  I tried the new chocolate flavor before ordering it; it certainly is not tart.  Instead it's creamy and very rich chocolate -- too rich for my friend, Hilary, who joined me in the expedition.

I love the gluten free chocolate cake crumble!!  It was also very rich, so it probably isn't the best idea to pair it with the new chocolate flavor.  I asked my swirler to put it on the Pomegranate side of my small froyo.  They were rich, delicious, chewy, and altogether amazing.  I wish they would package it and sell it on its own!

I'm not sure if this topping is available in your local Pinkberry;  I'll check the WeHo location soon to see if they offer it there too.  The gluten free chocolate cake crumble is shown on the froyo emporium's website here.

Do you love it or do you love it?
