Pinkberry is nearly a decade old and to celebrate, they're going to help you defecate gold. Pinkberry's 10th birthday is January 30. On that day from 7 p.m. until close at participating Pinkberry locations, you can snag a small frozen yogurt, plus toppings, for only ten cents! The strangest and most exciting part of this deal is that if you say the secret incantation—"Birthday Style"—to the cashier, your yogurt will be sprinkled with edible gold glitter and adorned with a white chocolate candle, Eater LA reports.

This Pinkberry magic, by means of biological alchemy, should mean you will be pooping celebratory birthday gold. How valuable! (Remember the time Cards Against Humanity sold 30,000 people poop in a box on Black Friday?)

It's silly sure, but at least better marketing for the froyo chain than the time its founder was sentenced to seven years in prison for beating a homeless man with a tire iron.
