Giveaway: Pinkberry Yogurt and Swirly Grams for Valentine's Day


There are three days left for you to come up with something to show that special someone in your life how much they mean to you you.  That's right, V-Day approaches and a $4.99 box of Russell Stover and a limp bunch of grocery store roses just ain't gonna cut it this year.  Not unless you want to be sleeping on the couch for a while.

Me?  I'd rather get a food present than waxy chocolate or flowers any day.  Heck last week, the hubster brought me a leftover chocolate chip cookie from a work meeting and I thought I was the luckiest girl alive.

And so, I have just the thing to save you from that lumpy cold couch.  Pinkberry introduces the Swirly Gram!  A delicious container of yogurt + toppings delivered to your loved one.  The Swirly Grams come in three flavors:
  • Original with toasted almonds, strawberries, and dark chocolate crisps
  • Blood orange with blood orange pieces and waffle cookies
  • Chocolate with brownie bites, raspberries and shaved milk chocolate
Now doesn't that beat an embarrassing singing telegram or yet another delivered flower arrangement?  And just in case you don't want your yogurt delivered, you can order a gift-wrapped Pinkberry gift card delivered in any amount.  Pinkberry now has the following locations in the Bay Area:
  • Santa Clara- 2362 El Camino Real, Santa Clara, CA 95050. 
  • Sunnyvale- 122 East El Camino Real, Santa Clara, CA 94087.
  • Santana Row- 368 Santana Row, San Jose, CA 95128. 
  • West Valley- 1645 Saratoga Avenue, San Jose, CA 95129. 
  • Stanford Shopping Center- 180 El Camino Real, Palo Alto, CA 94304. 
And now, for the good part!  The fabulous folks at Pinkberry are giving you a gift certificate so you can send your sweetie some yogurt and not be banished to sleeping on the couch.  All you have to do is leave a comment letting me know what you're doing for V-Day and I'll let the random number generator do the rest.  Oh, and I'll give you an extra entry if you like Lawyer Loves Lunch on Facebook or already like LLL on FB (because I now measure my self worth by Facebook likes and lemme tell you, the lack of FB likes means my self worth has taken a serious beating).  And rumor has it, I have more than one gift card to give away so comment away people, comment away!

*Legalese:  I was given a gift card to review Pinkberry and the Pinkberry Swirly Gram.  The views expressed in this review are mine alone (not the hubster's who tried to shamelessly eat all of the yogurt).  Winner(s) will be drawn by random number generator Saturday morning at 10 a.m. PST.  You must reside in the U.S. to win.  You can't sell your gift card on Ebay because that's just bad karma.

  1. One of my biggest fears in moving to SF was the lack of Pinkberrys! Sad, I know. I'm excited they're growing in the Bay Area and find myself popping into the Stanford one from time to time.

    I've been dying to get down there to try the blood orange... maybe this is just the motivation I needed! =)

  3. Thanks for having this great giveaway! I live in California and have never had Pinkberry before, so this would be a great chance for me to finally try it. I feel like I'm missing out, haha! And let's see, just cooking at home and exchanging small gifts with my sweetie for Valentine's Day this year. Nothing major! :)

  8. Hi Roxan! All of the Pinkberry stores are doing the Swirly Gram. It's too late to order online for V-Day but you can still pick them up in the store!

  9. We are celebrating VDay on Sunday by having a nice dinner at home and playing games as a family. I'm sure some sort of dessert will be the agenda as well.

  13. Yay for giveaways! I love Pinkberry (and Red Mango too.) Who doesn't? Unless my husband has a special surprise for me (which I doubt :)) we will probably go out for dinner - I'm guessing Cheesecake Factory and watch a Netflix movie at home. I hope you have some special plans for V-Day. Happy Valentine's Day!

  15. Pinkberry is one of my most favorite things on this earth! I love being able to eat delicious frozen yogurt without even a speckle of guilt at all whatsoever. Well, I didn't really have any plans for V Day. But now that you've brought up Pinkberry...I know what I'll be getting!

  19. I'm past the giveaway time but I'm still leaving a comment 'cause I need to go to this store! My hubby is probably the less romantic person I've ever met sigh....I got flowers only once in a year and 1/2 but I have to say...i very much prefer a food bite to flowers :) but this year we are going to a concert so...we are going to have a good one.

  20. I liked you on Facebook, Lawyer. I am also a lawyer who LUVs lunch! But I am in LA, so we generally will not dine at the same places. Boo hoo.

    For V-day, my (non-lawyer) husband is making me a 4-course dinner. No couch for him!

  21. Ok there are no pinkberry locations in phoenix so I'm not feeling bad about missing the giveaway.

    I did like you on facebook.
    so techincally I missed two chances of winning the giftcard. Damn-it I never won a single draw. I just hope one day I will win atleast a chocolate by scratching some card.

  22. there's no pinkberry in Canada, but there is yogen fruz. Have you ever tried it? Maybe I shouldn't be mentioning it though on a Pinkberry contest, hehe. I don't know if I can enter because I'm a Canadian resident but US citizen. Regardless, I "liked" you FB because you're fab!
