Everybody gets a lemon!

Oprah Winfrey wasn’t too happy when she learned Pinkberry had discontinued her favorite flavor, lemon. But being Oprah Winfrey, a single tweet was enough to bring it back.

In May, the 63-year-old media mogul tweeted at the popular frozen yogurt eatery, asking why she could no longer get lemon at her local Pinkberry location.

“Can this be true???” she asked. “You’ve STOPPED making lemon? That’s what I was just told at my local Pinkberry. WHY?”

Pinkberry was quick to respond, confirming the flavor had been discontinued but assuring her that a special lemon deliver would be coming her way.

On Tuesday, they finally fulfilled their promise — throwing Winfrey a Queen Sugar-themed party for her and her OWN team and announcing that the lemon flavor would be returning.

“As you all know, there was Pinkberrygate a while back,” Winfrey explained in a video posted to Instagram about the event. “There was no lemon Pinkberry at my local Pinkberry dealership. And Jessica [a rep from Pinkberry] heard about that and has now created a Pinkberry party to make up for that — I thank you so much Pinkberry!”

Winfrey was told in the video that Lemon was a limited time flavor offer for spring, but it would be returning full-time “at your local neighborhood Pinkberry.”

“We want spring all the time,” Winfrey says before dancing with excitement at the news.

The event has a special tie-in for Queen Sugar, the drama Winfrey executive produces that airs Wednesdays on OWN. Pinkberry created a Queen Sugar-themed topping for the party — mixing their Meyer Lemon frozen yogurt with a brown sugar cinnamon crumble.

“This is when you know you’ve made it in life — when Pinkberry does a Queen Sugar swirl,” Winfrey said.
