LOS ANGELES--(Business Wire)--
Pinkberry today announced that the National Yogurt Association has
approved the use of the Live and Active Culture Seal on its frozen
yogurt. The seal certifies that Pinkberry contains a significant
number of live and active cultures - more than 10 million per gram at
the time of manufacture.

   "Pinkberry's uniquely tangy nonfat frozen yogurt has generated a
loyal consumer following in Southern California and New York," said
Ron Graves, chief executive officer of Pinkberry. "We applied for and
received this certification to assure our customers that our product
is and always has been made with real yogurt."

   Pinkberry is nonfat and a good source of calcium. It contains live
and active cultures including Streptococcus thermophilus,
Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Lactobacillus acidophilus.

   "The National Yogurt Association is excited to certify the use of
its Live and Active Culture Seal to Pinkberry frozen yogurt products,"
said NYA President Leslie Sarasin. "We applaud Pinkberry for bringing
a unique, affordable luxury to consumers."

   Pinkberry features three flavors of frozen yogurt - original,
green tea, and coffee - each with the refreshing, Pinkberry signature
tangy taste. A wide range of high quality fruit and creative dry
toppings are the perfect complement to the three flavors.

   Every aspect of the Pinkberry experience is thought through with
the customer in mind - from the engaging store design, to the distinct
taste of the frozen yogurt, to the quality and creativity of the
toppings, to the music, to the interaction with the Pinkberry team
