Review: froyoswirl

by gigi on June 16, 2009

Jen and I met up after work one summer day and decided it was too hot out for coffee. Instead, we decided to check out a relatively new frozen yogurt place that opened at Robson & Seymour. We figured it was a healthy alternative to ice cream and lucky for us, froyoswirl was actually on both our lists of places to try.

Being both health and cost conscious at the same time, Jen and I decided to share a large frozen yogurt and added 3 toppings for about $6. We opted for a summer theme with our toppings and chose strawberries, mangos, and lychees. The frozen yogurt was soft serve and still had the nice tangy taste of well-made froyo. Its slight tanginess actually complemented the fresh fruit quite well. I find that fresh fruit always goes better with frozen yogurt than ice cream, which makes the fruit taste sour no matter how sweet the fruit actually is.

Both Jen and I thoroughly enjoyed our treat but were somewhat deterred by the somewhat high price of our frozen yogurt and immediately started trying to brainstorm cheaper alternatives. Of course, this led me to search for a home made frozen yogurt recipe, which I found and was able to replicate with quite a bit of success. :) That being said, I did enjoy the frozen yogurt at froyoswirl quite a bit and they do have quite a nice variety of toppings. Froyoswirl is a great alternative if you don’t want to deal with the hassle of making your own frozen yogurt or if you don’t have any topping options at home. :)
