Pinkberry (Charlotte Airport)

Here we are at the Charlotte airport on a five-hour layover en route to Rome (yes, that's Rome, Italy!!).  On our way to our gate in Concourse D we passed by Pinkberry, the famous California chain that started it all, and I knew I would be back as soon as my lunch settled!  I had heard so much about this place that I was excited to finally try it.  I got the Salted Caramel flavored frozen yogurt (like, how could you not?) with mochi, coconut, and dark chocolate crisps toppings.  I'm always a bit wary of airport food establishments, but Pinkberry exceeded my expectations.  The salted caramel froyo was delicious (even though I still prefer the ice cream version at Jeni's), and the crunchy dark chocolate crisps were super tasty and complimented the salted caramel perfectly.  The only complaint I have is that it was really expensive - $6.55 + tax for a medium with toppings - though that may just be the special airport pricing.  (Let's hope. *Grumble*)  In any case, Pinkberry definitely made my long stay at the airport that much more enjoyable. :)
