To be honest, after our experience at Menchie’s, I was hesitant to take Mr. to another frozen yogurt bar. But then, I really can’t resist the temptation of facing so many frozen yogurt flavours and toppings, and building a frozen yogurt to my liking. With a deal voucher, I took Mr. to the Qoola at Metrotown.

Each Qoola location seems to have different product offerings. At the Metrotown store, you can get frozen yogurt, smoothie or their “wannawafel” (aka Belgian waffle). We just went for the frozen yogurt. There were a total of 10 flavours to choose from; unlike Menchie’s, they didn’t have a system in place for you to sample the flavours. We chose to get a little bit of Pure Organic, Lemon Organic, Pumpkin, Strawberry and Chocolate, and not knowing how they taste, we’re basically in for a surprise.

It seems like they have fewer topping options than what we saw at Menchie’s. (more…)

Menchie’s is not a new addition to the frozen yogurt scene. It’s been in Vancouver for more than 1.5 years now but it’s only recently that I visited one of its locations for the first time. I can’t believe the cute little Menchie’s icon didn’t get me to its door sooner!

Mr. and I went to the flagship location on Cambie near the Canada Line station. It was a hot Saturday afternoon, so it was no surprise that the store was packed.

The idea of Menchie’s is similar to Qoola. First you select your own flavour(s) of yogurt at the yogurt bar. Because they charge you by weight, you can choose just one flavour or a bit of everything. They actually place little paper cups for you to sample the 12 yogurt flavours before committing to any flavours.  To be honest, it was tempting to just try as much yogurt as we can then sneak out of the place (and I bet some people do do that). But nah, we want the full experience!
