At least the weather is improving slightly, I suppose.
Last night I had dinner at Mandoo Bar and dessert at PinkBerry, the latter recommended to me by my friend, Flo. As I was having my frozen yogurty concoction (with mochi, strawberries, and cookie crumbs), I thought about why its slightly sour, slightly sweet taste is so popular.
And then I realized it: people eat what their life is like. People like PinkBerry because it reminds them of their own life - a little sweet, a little sour, and topped with some sweet or fruity goodness*.
Which would also explain people's fascination with sweet and sour chicken, and why I like to eat spicy foods.
Is it summer yet?
* On a side note, while PinkBerry's yogurt is fat-free, I've also heard that it's actually rehydrated yogurt powder (imported); not fresh yogurt.
