While the doughnut wars, coffee wars, and fruit wars rage on, theres been a flare-up in that old chestnut, the fro-yo wars. Yet another Pinkberry imitator, Berry Lover, has opened across from the UA Kaufman Studios Cinema, and this one is seriously upping the ante by selling soups, wraps, gelato, and even muesli with fro-yo. Our favorite item, however, was the shaved ice topped with Berry Berry and condensed milk (other yogurt flavors include green tea, pomegranate, and the highly unoriginal original) of course, its an item straight off Pinkberrys menu, but that doesnt make it any less enjoyable. Check out the stores highly familiar interior below.
