It only took three years, but now Pinkberry can officially call the frozen "chilly bliss" it creates "frozen yogurt," having gotten the National Yogurt Association's seal of approval. Eater LA broke the news last week that Pinkberry had settled a lawsuit for misrepresenting its product and "had to pay $750,000 to two charities, plus fork out some hefty attorney's fees and a smaller sum to the plaintiff... Cut to 2008: The company changed its formula, now lists the ingredients on the website, and started making the product off-site as it should've been all along." Who knew there was a National Yogurt Association, btw? [Eater LA]
