Just in time for the holidays, Berry Chill introduces Egg Nog, a limited-edition chilled yogurt!

The all-natural Egg Nog flavored chilled yogurt is only 20 calories per ounce and 100 percent fat free. It also contains live active cultures for improved digestive health - just like real yogurt. Egg Nog chilled yogurt will be available through the beginning of January at all three Berry Chill locations: 635 N. State, 132 N. LaSalle and 500 W. Madison.

In addition to offering Egg Nog as a speciality flavor, Berry Chill will celebrate the holiday season with the ultimate Berry Chill Gift Card: the Culture Club card.

Shh...Secret Menu Revealed!

Just how many different ways can you enjoy Berry Chill? Mmmm, there are hundreds -- maybe thousands -- of delicious combos that our customers have invented.

You've been so good to us, that we want to give some sweet goodness right back to you. So (drum roll)...that's why we're going to keep a few under-the-counter treats that only our most loyal pals can get. And since they're off the menu, they're free to you.

Next time you come in, top off your yogurt with some sweet natural honey, spicy cinnamon or your childhood fave, Hershey's Chocolate Syrup. 

When you want to dip into one of our private toppings, just say this: "Make it sweet" -- for a drizzle of honey over your yogurt and toppings "Make it spicy" -- for a few shakes of cinnamon "Make it choco" -- for a swirl of chocolate syrup.

Our staff knows what to do. The folks behind you in line will wonder.

It's our way of saying thanks to the people who matter most.

He says: I'm just getting to know Chicago and so far it's been great. But, I wish they served Berry Chill at the ballpark.
We say: The White Sox might be our home team, but when it comes toBerry Chill, there's no need for a shortstop. So step up to the plate and catch some fro-yo. We'll BC-in ya in the stands!

Berry Important Person: Jake Bakula and Brett Donnelly

Who: Jake & Brett
What's in their cup: Original with strawberries, mango and raspberries (Jake) Original with Lucky Charms, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and bananas (Brett)
They say: There's nothing wrong with two guys shopping and hanging out at Berry Chill. Actually it's as cool as the hand drier in the bathroom.
We say: These best friends may not be Siskel and Ebert, but we love a berry good review. So, hand driers aside, we'll take their thumbs up!
