Kiwiberri on 3rd and La Cienega versus Pinkberry

omotosando | Oct 27, 2006 03:15 AM

I tried Kiwiberri on 3rd and La Cienega today (in the same mini-mall as Mishima). I understand that Kiwiberri is a ripoff of the infamous Pinkberry, which, in turn, is a ripoff of some chain in South Korea.

The plain yogurt that I tried at Kiwiberri was fine - pleasantly sour and not sickly sweet like most frozen yogurts. The two toppings I tried (blueberries and kiwi) were also fine - fresh and not mushy.

But here is my question to anyone who has been to both Kiwiberri and Pinkberry (I have yet to try the infamous Pinkberry) -- is there any significant difference between Kiwiberri and Pinkberry?

The reason I ask is that while the yogurt at Kiwiberri was fine, it is not something that I would go out of my way for, much less stand in a line. So is Pinkberry that much better than Kiwiberri, or am I just immune to the charms of this style of frozen yogurt?
