More fro-yo is on its way, but do we really need it?

The resurgence of frozen yogurt shops in the Twin Cities is a lot of things: unexpected, illogical, a boon for the sprinkles industry, and a welcome trend to the health-conscious who lurk among us. But the most notable thing about this craze is that it seems to be showing zero signs of stopping. With Yogurt Lab just opening its new location in the IDS Center, FreeStyle Yogurt set to open a new store in Tangletown, and now the chain that arguably started this (fudge) ripple effect is coming to the Twin Cities. That's right y'all, we're getting a Pinkberry.

Pinkberry is set to open its very first Minnesota store next month at, where else, the Mall of America. More specifically, the store will be inside the Macy's at the mall. With the food court and other available stalls at every level of the mall, we're thinking Macy's is hoping to benefit from all the foot traffic. 

The Los Angeles-based chain is all over the rest of North America, so it may seem like we're pretty late to the game, but with all the other local options for fro-yo (and real ice cream), do we really need Pinkberry? Is it really that great? Would you walk all the way into Macy's to get it? Join the Dish-cussion in the comments below.

MOA already has Freeziac. I'd still head to FreeStyle if I'm jonesing. Salted caramel pretzel... so good. @Anne C. Welch, there are ALWAYS more important things to discuss than yogurt, but life is short.

Who Really cares?! There are far more important things to discuss at this time.

I don't think it will hurt the other fro-yo shops around town. I would not travel to the MOA for frozen yogurt, and I'm happier at the yogurt lab anyway.
