Things You Didn’t Know About Pinkberry & Kuwait

I was reading an article in Businessweek about Pinkberry’s plans to expand outside of the USA. The article is fairly new, it was written in April 2011, and had some really fascinating facts. Including something fascinating (but not surprising) about Kuwait:

  • Kuwait is Pinkberry’s highest volume store, beating everyone everywhere. Way to go Kuwait.
  • Starbucks Chairman joined the board of Pinkberry in 2007. Super cool connection score for local big Starbucks fans, Al-Shaye3.
  • People stood in line, yes even in West Hollywood, for hours when Pinkberry first opened up there in 2005.
  • Pinkberry is expensive, and not just in Kuwait: a small cup costs $5 in the States.
  • Pinkberry’s Peru branches get 50% more business than the American branches. Way to go Peru.
  • Pinkberry sales are less than one-third of ColdStone’s sales.
  • You get lots of local flavors and toppings to suit every specific market; like green tea flavors in South-East, and dates & pistachio topping in our Gulf region.
I hope you enjoyed these little-known-facts, just like I did.

My Late Midsummer Night Snack

   

   

Thinking of summer snacks, there’s nothing tastier than a bowl of berries topped with creamy frozen chocolate mousse.

I went to the Jam3iya wanting to buy frozen English berries (in terms of taste, they’re the best) and some ready made chocolate mousse. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find what I wanted. So I settled for this bag of Raspberries and some chocolate pudding instead.

They still tasted good, especially after I threw the pudding in the freezer for an hour, but the snack would’ve been a lot better with great berries and strong thick chocolate mousse.

Just remember to dip your frozen berries in water, then strain them into your bowl .Otherwise, they will look ugly, and the icicles will melt to water and mix with your mousse.
