Limited-Edition Flavor Egg Nog Adds Holiday Cheer to Chilled Yogurt!

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.

"We're excited to offer Egg Nog because it's usually such an indulgent holiday treat, only in this case it's low-calorie and non-fat," said Berry Chill founder and yogurteur Michael Farah. "It really is a guilt-free pleasure."

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. When you're loved one redeems their gift card, Berry Chill will donate 3% of each sale to their choice of one of Berry Chill's partner charities. Furthermore, each time they add value to their Culture Club card, Berry Chill will reward them with a 10% bonus to their card. So celebrate the most wonderful time of the year with the gift that keeps on giving!

Berry Chill and Chicago's Off the Street Club!

On Wednesday, December 17, Berry Chill served up some sweet treats to Draft FCB's Holiday Party to over 40 children of Chicago's Off the Street Club. 

Founded in 1900, Off the Street Club is Chicago's oldest boys and girls club and serves more than 3,000 kids. The Off the Street Club is a special organization that gives kids aged 4-18 a place to do their homework, play computer games, perform plays, dance, roller-skate, sing, pay musical instruments, express themselves through arts and crafts, and more. Off the Street Club kids have mentors, tutors and role models; and the Club offers a safe haven where boys and girls can meet together and interact safely and respectfully.

More information on the program can be found at

Doing good never tasted so great!

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.
