But, it doesn't take a degree to know that there's nothing smarter than snacking on a cup of our all-natural fro-yo; because our pro-biotic packed yogurt will give your body more than just a brain freeze. And we're open until 4am just in case, you have to pull an all-nighter.

Who: Ashley
What's In Her Cup: Original with raspberries, strawberries, and PB pretzels
She Says: We've been planning a date to Berry Chill for a very long time, and now that the summer is officially over we finally have the time to get together for a cup.  (Ashley's friend was too shy to sport her BC yogurt for the camera!)
We Say:  Summer might be over but Berry Chill is just getting started.  Since opening our State Street store last March, we've been amazed by the response.  So there's no need to be shy.  Take a cue from this duo and make a date to catch up with your (B.B.F.F.) berry best fromie forever, Yogi Jones, at one of our THREE berry cool locations.  Because, whatever your schedule, he's never too busy to chill.

Chicago Marathon Runners Get Berry Good Surprise!

Chicago Marathon runners won’t just be running for the finish line during Sunday’s race. On Mile 2 of the route, Berry Chill will be debuting its new drink, Fro-J, yogurt and fresh-squeezed OJ, from the store at 132 N. LaSalle.

Michael Farah, our Founder, says, “We’re prepared to offer drinks to thousands of runners. Last year’s shortage of water happened in the early part of the race, and our store happens to be in the right spot for us to offer them some relief if they need it.”

Not registered for Sunday’s marathon? It may be too late to start training, but you can still try Fro-J ($3.99 for 16 ounces) at all THREE locations! Yup, we’re opening our new location at Ogilvie Train Station, 500 W. Madison.

We hope we’ll BC’n you!

We Say:  You can't script a more Tony dessert-- live good-for-you cultures, exotic fruit flavors such as peach mango and pink guava, and toppings more elaborate than a Broadway set.  BC is one treat where you won't feel guilty demanding an encore.
