Tangysweet is a total rip-off of Pinkberry. Thankfully for DC, it is a pretty good rip-off and I’m absolutely addicted, as are an entire legion of people in the DC area. It’s funny because it wasn’t too long ago I was thinking that it was just a matter of time until someone put a Pinkberry in DC. In fact, it is probably just a matter of time until there is a Pinkberry (or Pinkberry rip-off) in most major cities in the United States. If there was ever a time to invest in frozen yogurt it would be now.
Cost – $
Service – B
It’s fine. They hire pretty good people to work here who are friendly and upbeat.
Food – A+
Pinkberry – I mean Tangysweet, offers simply addictive frozen yogurt garnished with fresh fruit. In these health-conscious times it is a pretty compelling benefit proposition – especially when you take into account the fact that it actually tastes better than ice cream. As a matter of fact, it is the most addictive thing you can ingest including physically addictive narcotic substances. It is more addictive than a bowl of steaming hot Pho with 10 grams of MSG. In fact while I’m writing this my hands are starting to shake and I’m contemplating getting into my car and driving down to Dupont faster than a gay dude on Madonna night.
Decor – C
It reminds me of the Korova Milk Bar in a Clockwork Orange, which isn’t a good thing because it (the film representation) came out of Stanley Kubrick’s warped imagination.
Feel – A
I feel great when I walk into Tangysweet because I know I am only minutes away from that delicious pomegranate-flavored frozen yogurt topped with blackberries and kiwi.
Tangysweet is located at 2028 P Street in Dupont Circle.
