My froyo toppings of choice include fresh strawberries, mangos, and of course, mochi, but what if the mochi was found next to tomatoes? Well, maybe this topping isn’t for the froyo we know and love, but is for something new that Pinkberry is offering.
Pinkberry is going Greek.
No, the Los Angeles-based yogurt chain Pinkberry isn’t joining a UCLA frat; they’re hopping on the bandwagon and serving nonfat Greek yogurt!
The company — whose first store opened in West Hollywood in 2005 — is making a surprising move in a number of ways. While Pinkberry is known for its upscale frozen yogurt, the Greek yogurt that they’re starting to sell is unfrozen.
That’s right, Pinkberry has started to serve Greek yogurt, which has significantly risen in popularity. The store is also planning on selling coffee, trying to make it THE place to stop for breakfast.
As much as I used to love Pinkberry, I’ve skipped over it a few times in favor of its cheaper (but just as delicious) competitor, Yogurtland. However, I do love Greek yogurt, so maybe it’s time to go back to Pinkberry?
What do you think of Pinkberry’s newest offerings?

Once upon a time, when McDonald’s introduced their line of sandwiches known as the McGriddles, I thought having a breakfast sandwich with syrupy pancakes as buns would be horrible. Cut to a few years later, when I actually tried one, and I found out the mix of salty and sweet was quite delicious.
Now, The Huffington Post shows us that someone has taken these weird sandwich hybrids to a new level.
After listening to radio hosts discuss the idea of using a Cinnabon as a bun for a hamburger, Nick of DudeFoods.com decided he had to try it for real. So, he bought a Cinnabon, grilled a half-pound hamburger and fried some bacon. Then, he created The Cinnaburger.
And, he loved it. He found that letting the burger sit for a few minutes before eating actually worked out well, as the burger patty soaked up more frosting, which for him was apparently a good thing.
Despite the fact that it looks insanely bizarre, I probably would try a few bites of this should it ever end up being in front of my face. Would you try it?
Ever made a dish with a bunch of eggs and wished there was something you could do with the eggshells besides throwing them away? Well, thanks to Stylelist, here are some things you can do with those shells!
Did you know that eggshells are predominately made of calcium carbonate — the active ingredient in lime — as well as other nutrients for plants? Eggshells make a great natural fertilizer of sorts. Whether you break the shells up and sprinkle them on top of a plant, or mix a few into potting soil, your plant will thank you.
Coffee Or Tea Stain Remover
Do you have a cup or travel mug that has been stained by your favorite warm beverage? Grind up some eggshells and drop them in the drinkware filled with warm water. Let it sit over night, and the egg shell will absorb the stain.
Remember how we said that egg shells make great fertilizer? Use egg shells to start seeds. Fill the egg shell half with soil and the seed, then plant directly into the ground (or into the pot). As the plant develops and the shell breaks down, it provides the seedling with plenty of nutrients.

Saw this a while back, but it still blows my mind. Now I want a cupcake!
Slightly misleading headlines, FTW. Anyway, growing up surrounded by advertisements, one of the things blatantly obvious about them is that things don’t always appear in ads as they are in real life. Perfect example: fast food. I’m sure I’m not the only one who gets disappointed eating a Carl’s Jr. burger, not hearing the delicious biting sound from the commercials.
A customer recently tweeted to McDonald’s asking why the burgers at the restaurant don’t look like they do in commercials. Because ignoring customer tweets is a social media no-no, McDonald’s Canada’s director of marketing Hope Bagozzi answers that question in a new video. Watch as a Quarter Pounder gets “styled” for a photoshoot, and see why ads look better than burgers in real life.

Yes, you read that right: Burger King has a bacon sundae. There are mixed reviews, from good, to bad, to fattening (really? Ice cream and bacon together is fattening? SHOCKER!) but the thing that shocks me the most is that I’m not surprised about this. Wasn’t it Jack in the Box, after all, that had a Bacon Shake not too long ago? I should know, I tried it. But check out BK’s version below.
Don’t know if I’ll try it. I do admit it does look pretty good, especially after the Bacon Shake wasn’t too bad (as long as you didn’t have too much of it). But what about you? Would you try the bacon sundae?

I’m sure you’ve heard of ordering something at In-N-Out “Animal Style,” or going above and beyond the Double-Double and going for a 3×3, 4×4, or even the 100×100?
Well, now it’s time to reveal In-N-Out’s “Top Secret” menu, since one of the items will be outlawed in California on July 1. Introducing: The Double Duck. This has thick slices of foie gras layered into a Double-Double burger. As some of you know, foie gras will be banned in California on July 1, so people are flocking to In-N-Out to get a last taste of The Double Duck.
Watch the video below as comedian David Ury orders and indulges on The Double Duck.
P.S. Did I mention David Ury is a comedian? That’s right, this burger is not actually real, although the ban on foie gras is. So share this with friends and fool them too!

I’ve been getting into the YouTube/vlogging community a lot recently (I bought a new camera and just registered for VidCon2012…eep!) But before it became my new hobby, I was just another viewer. Well, I’ve been watching GloZell for a while, and she comes up with the funniest stuff! One of her best videos was her attempting the Cinnamon Challenge, and now she’s going to try another food challenge: The Hot Pepper Challenge.
Would you attempt this challenge?
