The numbers may have been a little off (it opened way late), but I can now vouch for the rest of my Milky’s post. I stopped by a couple Saturday’s ago to taste their frozen vegan treats. Here’s what I found:
-It is, indeed, self-serve. This is good because you can START and END at the toppings bar and build a foundation layer of rainbow sprinkles, the proper way to do it. This is bad because it is near impossible to not self-serve yourself way too much, and of course, you pay by weight.
-There were four vegan spigots, but one was out of service. The flavors available were original vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. A Neapolitan waiting to happen.
-There was not a separate vegan toppings bar. There was a dried goods bar (i.e., the aforementioned rainbow sprinkles and another fav, graham cracker crumbs) and a fresh items bar (i.e., fresh fruit). There was also a giant jug of Ghirardelli chocolate syrup which looked vegan to me.
-This stuff is sour! I have been vegan so long, I have never experienced this, but apparently it’s all the rage with Pinkberry et al. The lady at the register said it’s “Greek Style” yogurt. It was quite a shock. Even with the flavor masked by all those sprinkles, it was still mighty sour.
-If you “check-in” you get 20% off your order. That’s a lotta sprinkles.
