Introducing the Gordon Beckham Chill!

Attention all Baseball fans! Baseball's Gordon Beckham is ditching his peanuts and cracker jacks for the delicious and nutritiousness that is Berry Chill!

Berry Chill has partnered with the talented third baseman to create a tasty new treat for all you sports fans - The Gordon Beckham Chill - the GBC for short! Topped with fresh pineapple and strawberries as well as M&Ms, the GBC is home-run combo! Every time you order the GBC, the proceeds will be donated to his foundation of choice, the National Parkison's Federation.

Take a swing at this new combo! Doing good never tasted so great! Try it at our three Berry Chill store locations!

We Can't Believe It's Already Over!

It's been a challenging 30 days... and the Zipcar Low-Car Diet presented by Berry Chill has finally come to an end. It's bittersweet for all of us Berry Chill especially because we have grown to love and admire the participants. For the participants, the challenge meant giving up their car keys, and changing their lifestyle. They were asked to use Zipcar's car sharing service in place of using their own cars, if they had one. Practically all of the participants realized how easy, stress-free, and economically and environmentally friendly it was to live car-free.

To get a feel for a day in the life of a low-car dieter, I'll show you one of the blogs Mara Unterberger sent in!

While I am writing this, I am struggling to keep my eyes open and it is only 7:15pm. Today I woke up around 9am so that I could make it to the gym by 10am. I did the same two classes that I did last Sunday, Skinny Jeans and Above the Belt. I was nervous because a different teacher was standing in for the teacher that normally teaches the class. Andrea is the normal teacher and she is my favorite! I did like the teacher that taught the class today, but not as much as Andrea. I walked the mile both to and from the gym and then did an hour at the gym. That alone was enough to make me tired!
After class, I picked up a turkey sandwich for lunch and ran home to eat it before softball. I had a softball game from 1-2pm. It is about a mile walk each way to the softball field and the game was about an hour long. On top of the gym I could barely walk home!

After the softball game I had reserved a Zipcar so that I could drive to Berry Chill. The Zipcar was about a half mile from my house. In total I walked about 5 miles, spent an hour at the gym and another hour playing softball. This is the most exercise I think I have ever done in my life! I have to say that while I dragged myself everywhere today, I am glad that I did it and know that I will sleep well tonight.

Tomorrow I have another session with Jenny. I am sure that she will kick my butt in the gym but I am looking forward to it because I have fun working out with her. I will try and update tomorrow after the gym, if I am still standing!

So this evening, August 14th, we will celebrate their success and let them know (if they don't already) how proud we really are of their accomplishments at the Skybox on Sheffield in Wrigley Field from 5-8 p.m.

p.s.- There WILL be a winner picked this evening, so stay tuned for a feature on the blog!

Wining and Dining For a Good Cause

Hey all! I wanted to give you all a chance to party with Berry Chill and benefit a great cause - at the same time! Below are the details for Berry Chill's charity partner the Red Cross of Chicago's Mission: Red event happening this Friday, August 14th at the Chicago Cultural Center:

You’re invited to experience the Red Cross like never before at the inaugural Mission: Red Experience Auction on August 14, 2009. Mission: Red is sure to be THE event of the summer. It’s a night where Chicagoland’s most philanthropic professionals will network, eat, drink, dance and bid on once-in-a-lifetime auction packages (looks for Berry Chill's!) to support the American Red Cross of Greater Chicago’s efforts to help people prevent, prepare for and respond to disasters. Mission: Red will feature music from local acoustic guitarist Dan Darrah and DJ Pasha (of Lollapalooza fame) as well as complimentary food and cocktails. If that’s not enough to entice you, take a chance in the raffle to win a trip for two to LA to go behind the scenes on the set of CSI: NY as the guest of one of the show’s stars, Hill Harper aka “Dr. Sheldon Hawkes”.

As a friend of the Red Cross, Mission: Red sponsors are inviting Berry Chill fans to take part in their exclusive online offer – enter secret code “FFDTICKET” and receive $25 off your admission. This offer is valid for online ticket sales only and is available until 10 p.m. on Thursday, August 13.

The Results Are In!

I posted a poll earlier this week to get feedback about this month's flavors from our Berry loyal customers! It turns out that Chocolate Covered Strawberry was the winner (I wasn't surprised). I have to say, Chocolate Covered Strawberry is my favorite chocolate variation that the yogurteur has concocted yet! Sprinkle some Banana-Chocolate granola, Rice Krispies Treats, and fresh-cut bananas on there and I'm floating on cloud 9!

Got a favorite BC flavor that didn't make it to the poll? I want to hear what it is! I encourage you to share it with me by commenting on this post so we can discuss your favorite flavor (and toppings!).

I'll BC'in ya!

Do you remember the Michigan Avenue magazine party we told you about on Thursday of last week? Just in case you don't, Berry Chill was present at an evening hosted by Michigan Avenue in honor of Chicago's Surreal Housewives. Honestly, the Surreal Housewives are gorgeous, but we're going to have to admit that the crowd was exceptionally good lookin' as well! The photos speak for themselves!

It's a Beautiful Day!

And Berry Chill is ready to keep all those attending the 85th Annual Northbrook Days ultra chill today, August 5th, and all throughout the weekend. The festival is a great venue for adults and children alike to have fun and enjoy entertainment of all sorts such as, raffles, a carnival, and great food- the essentials for a great time!

Stop by the BC cart if you're there, and we'll make sure your taste buds don't go unsatisfied!

Let me introduce myself, they call me Mr. Foxx.

Berry Chill was able to fuel up Jamie Foxx and his crew at Underground Friday, July 31st! He put on a mini-performance for the crowd that night and let us tell you something- the place was PACKED.

With Lollapalooza coming up this weekend, we'll be sure to keep you updated with some very cool celebrity sightings. BC will be at the 2009 Music Lounge at the Hard Rock Hotel this weekend. Stay tuned yogurt lovers!
