Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt

I heard about Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt when it first opened, and being a big fan of frozen yogurt, I have always wanted to give it a try. So when the chance arose (after having dinner at Saravanaa Bhavan, which was only a short walk from Menchie’s), I readily agreed to frozen dessert despite the cold weather.

Menchie’s, like Qoola, offers self-serve frozen yogurt. However, I love the large selection of yogurt that Menchie’s offers. I usually prefer sweet yogurt flavours over tart ones, and I was happy to see that Menchie’s had my favourite flavour: red velvet!! They also had creme brulee (I knew I would love this flavour even before I tried it), taro (this is my first time seeing taro yogurt), among many others. Another thing that I love about Menchie’s, other than the delicious choice of flavours, is that they let you take your own samples. They leave small sample cups on a side table, so you can pick and choose flavours to try before making a purchase.

Red velvet, original, creme brulee

The first thing that I noticed about Menchie’s frozen yogurt: it’s really thick! Unlike Qoola’s (which is runny and melts faster), Menchie’s yogurt, like Pinkberry, does not melt out too quickly! I really like that about Menchie’s. I chose red velvet, original, and creme brulee flavours, and topped them off with crushed almonds, green tea mochi, original mochi, skor, and chocolate sauce. The original flavour here is a bit too tart for my liking (Pinkberry’s original is still my favourite), but otherwise I loved my frozen dessert!

Frozen yogurt is a delicious and healthy alternative to ice cream. Self-serve complete with toppings just makes the whole experience that much better.

Fit for Life

There is a store called “Fit for Life” across from Superstore in Metrotown. They share the space with another store that sells newspapers, magazines and candy bars so it can be kind of easy to miss at first. I first knew about it when Mochi told me about the great frozen yogurt that they served there so I had to try for myself!

Fit for Life

I went to try it out the first time when they first started serving up frozen yogurt. They usually sell sandwiches and salads but I guess they wanted to try something new. It used to be only $1 for a huge cup plus one free topping, but now it’s $1.49 for a cup and 49cents for each topping. It’s still a pretty good size for the price that you pay though!

They only serve original flavor yogurt; It tastes a bit tangy and not too sweet. I didn’t like how it was so melty though. Qoola’s yogurt is much better in my opinion. This one probably contains less probiotics than Qoola as well.

Frozen yogurt with strawberry topping $2

Overall, my favourite frozen yogurt is still Qoola (good mochi topping!) and the one from Ikea (cheap and yummy~Only a dollar).
