Calling on all Twitter and Berry Chill addicts alike- you can now use both addictions to your advantage! If you tweet about being at one of our BC locations, are on your way, or if Berry Chill was on your mind, to @yogijones- stop by and show the tweet to an employee at the counter to receive 10% off your BC purchase! If you have any further inquiries don't hesitate to ask Yogi directly on his Twitter page, www.twitter.com/yogijones
The following is an example of a tweet that, if shown upon purchase, you will receive 10% off!:

So indulge a little, and keep the change. ;)
Or Chilled Yogurt… we just honestly couldn’t think of a catch phrase for BC. However, while we’re on the topic of ice cream we’d like to take this opportunity to fill you all in on a very special cause we hold close to our hearts. Imerman Angels has provided Berry Chill with the opportunity to provide yogurts to patients, families, doctors, and nurses monthly, beginning tomorrow! We are thrilled that we have the opportunity to socialize with very special individuals and provide a healthy and tasty treat at the same time!
We have been at U.S. Cellular Field almost everyday this past week and would just like to thank everyone for being a berry excited and entertaining crowd! For all the devout Chicago baseball fans out there, we are quite familiar with your loyalty to the Sox and the Cubs, respectively. But we were pleasantly surprised by the neutrality of fans when it came to Berry Chill. To all the Sox and Cubs fans out there- way to get your preference for chilled yogurt just right!

Yogi was at U.S. Cellular Park yesterday to watch the Sox play the Dodgers, what a game! As most of you know, Berry Chill is now part of the menu at the club level of the stadium. Being quite the social butterfly that he is, Yogi spotted some baseball fans getting their BC fix on a sizzling hot game day. He mainly ran into Berry Chill first-timers, so we’re glad we could chill them out on the hot summer day that it was!

As most of you know, last week we raffled off tickets for our Just for Laughs promotion. Pictured here are Kirby, who won tickets to The Nasty Show, and Joanne, who won tickets to Martin Short. They were among the winners who were chosen by both our in-store raffle, and by Yogi Jones himself who was actively twittering away searching for winners. We hope our winners had an enjoyable experience at the shows, and encourage you all to stay berry chill in this newfound summer heat!
Kirby twittered upon receiving her tickets, "@YogiJones Thanks Berry Chill for the Just For Laughs tickets! And couldn't resist the best mid-day treat with @lauraclemons :)"
And Joanne twittered about her experience, "An absolutely amazing show last night at The Vic. Martin Short still has it! Thanks @YogiJones & Berry Chill!!"
Thanks to all who participated!

Our evening at the Chicago Theatre was a great success! Kanye performed, despite the migraine he was suffering from during the day, and Nick Cannon DJ’d the evening. And of course, Ellen was fantastic and hilarious. Here’s a picture of the BC cart in the theatre.
For those of you who purchased BC at the theatre last night, keep in mind that the proceeds from last nights’ sales are going to Ellen Degeneres' favorite chairty, the Humane Society of the United States!

So when the weather is warm and you’re on a tight schedule try the BC self-order kiosks placed in-store for your convenience.

Berry Chill is excited to announce the debut of BC's new topping: Watermelon! Available now at all three Berry Chill locations (635 N. State, 132 N. LaSalle, and the Ogilvie Train Station).
Not only great on a hot summer day, this thirst-quencher may also help quench the inflammation that contributes to conditions like asthma, diabetes, colon cancer, and arthritis. Pack with some of the most important antioxidants in nature, watermelon is an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin A, potassium and magnesium.
Another great perk - watermelon has no cholesterol and virtually no fat! A whole cup of watermelon contains only 48 calories! So don't feel guilty about adding this treat to your Berry Chill...
We'll BC'in ya!
