Frozen Yogurt seems seems to be very popular right now, and it’s creeping up everywhere around the city! Recently, Yogurtys Froyo has opened in the southeast end of Calgary – which is the first in the West! This is a chain primarily from Ontario, so it’s an honour to have them here! This location is located just off of High Street close to the Fitness gym, and it’s probably there for a reason!
We walked inside this storefront and was greeted by lots of super friendly staff! You begin by going to the back and picking a size of cup you would like, and filling it with your favourite frozen yogurt! When you got that, you’ll go around the corner to where there is a ton of topping selection. It ranges from candies, to mochies, nuts and syrups! Then, when you’re done, just turn around, get your goodies weighed and enjoy!
My simple creation during this visit consisted of Strawberry, Chocolate and Espresso. I then topped it with some boba with exploding juices in them, fun chips, mochi and some milk chocolate crunch. The frozen yogurt here was smooth and creamy and wasn’t filled with ice crystals. The flavours tasted like what they are suppose to, so it’s a lot of fun here!
We also got a cup for my husband, and his was filled with Green tea and French Vanilla, topped with boba, mochi and chopped peanuts! We love that there are nut toppings to enhance the flavour and texture – but can see potential problems because of the peanuts. I’m glad it’s not a peanut-free location though!
Overall, I know I will be back! I’ve already joined their Loyality program and I have a bad feeling that I will become a VIP before I know it!

I truly love all sweet foods, and I have a special spot for cold sweet foods/snacks… so, this is something I crave all the time – which is kind of a bad thing! But, I’ve learned to just enjoy in small amounts, but lots of days! This Tutti Frutti location is the South Trail location just off 130th Ave SE and I think it’s a brilliant location with tons of young families, this will be the perfect place for everyone!
This Tutti Frutti location is rather spacious and bright – and it’s really quite nice. You start at the back of the store and begin by taking a cup, then filling it with your favourite frozen youghurt. From there, you can go to the toppings bar and then pay. You’ll find yourself near the door so you can easily take it to go or turn around and find a table to enjoy your newly created treat!
I took my treat to the nearest table I could find so I could dig in. On this visit, I opted for the Death by Chocolate Froyo and the Chai Tea flavours, topped with their mochi’s, cheesecake chunks and bobas!
My other half enjoyed a few flavours of his own too! He was in the fruit mood, so he picked Grape froyo and Mango Pineapple Sorbet, so both his flavours seemed lighter! He topped it similarly with mine with just the mochi and the bobas.
Overall, this is obviously a good place to be! On a cool night with rain in the forecast, the crowds just keep rolling in and out – constantly! You know on a bright sunny day, it will be packed! Since this is so addictive, I’m sure even during the heart of winter, you’ll find me and other froyo fans there!

I really love desserts, and even Chinese desserts. I was brought to Golden Island Cafe in San Francisco and it has been memorable! I still think about this location and the desserts from here all the time! The hours are great as it could accommodate us even as an after dinner dessert.
We ordered a few desserts and they were all delicious! We love the look, taste and texture of Sesame Paste and Sweet Tofu which was basically Dau Fu Fa (tofu pudding dessert) with black sesame paste/soup.
We also had an order of Lychee with Sago as sago is my favourite Chinese dessert! This one is no exception as it’s delicous sago with lychee slush, topped with lychee fruit!
Lastly, we ordered the Sago with Mango, as the name says, it’s a bowl of sago, topped with mangos! It’s delicious, fresh and even refreshing!
Overall, I love this place and I know I will return next time I’m in the Bay Area!

So, this is an interesting post. It’s not my first invite to Grand Openings and whatnot. However, I must say – this is the first time I’ve attended any invite from my activity in the blogosphere. How could I resist such an invite to Tutti Fruitti?? I’m sure glad I attended as it was what I really wanted – delicious, creamy, indulgent. light and refreshing frozen yogurt! This store front location is perfect as it’s near tons of people, both residential and commercial so this really is an ideal location.
Once in the store, you basically greet the amazing team, and walk straight to the back where the frozen yogurt dispensers are! You first start by picking up a cute cup – large or small, which really depends on how much frozen yogurt and toppings you want to put on. I totally recommend just grabbing the big cup since you never know when you’re going to dispense too much frozen yogurt – or decide on too many toppings. These cups are weighed at the end when you’re ready to enjoy – and at $0.55 an ounce, it makes it a great treat, big or small!
Once you’ve filled up your cup with the frozen yogurt, take a walk back to the front of the store where an huge array of toppings are presented for you to choose from. These toppings range from brownies, to tapioca pearls that have a little burst of flavour, to regular candies and snacks you love to enjoy anywhere! You can really be here forever – and this is where a BIG cup comes handy! Don’t walk too fast like me, I didn’t see the Ghiradelli caramel and chocolate syrups till I was done my yogurt.
I ended up enjoying a delicious cup of yogurt with coconut and pineapple twist (middle lever is a mix of the 2 flavours) as I love that combination – like a Pina Colada! It always transports me to somewhere warm and special – so I love that combination. The frozen yogurt here is really creamy, smooth and light. The texture is great as there isn’t ice crystals throughout! My toppings was simple, I choose some mochi and lychee boba. I love the boba’s Tutti Frutti has to offer from here!
This is really the place to be at – hot or cold outside, it’s the perfect light and delicious treat where you can decide anything! I’ve learned from the past place with so many options… taking everything you like in one doesn’t taste the best when it melts together. My advice now: Have lots of separate cups! 🙂 This place will be a heaven for kids and just a fantastic place just to hang out and catch up with friends and family. This location offers a great comfortable downstairs as well, making it one of the largest Tutti Frutti store fronts out there!

I love dessert, and while I was in Vancouver, I met up with a good friend that suggested we’d do dessert! Now, why did I not think about a suggestion like that! She recommended that we’d meet up at a place called Sweet Obsession Cakes which by the sound of the name is a place I will be obsessed with – and I am!
This store front is tucked away on a strip plaza and it’s a small but intimate with tons of sweets in the store! I love stores like this, so I was extremely content the moment we stepped foot into this cafe! The display cases were full of cakes even though it was becoming late in the day, and there was still a lot of people in and out of the cafe!
I sat down and ordered my favourite drink, the Chai Tea Latte which was really creamy and flavourful!
I couldn’t decide which piece of cake I wanted, but I finally settled on the Neopolitan Cake which was a chocolate cake with layers of vanilla butter cream and incorporated into the cream was raspberries and raspberry coulis! What a sweet treat, and it reminded a lot of “Black Forest Cake” taken to new heights!
The other piece of cake that I wanted to try was the Roasted Coconut Chiffon Cake, where my friend said she’ll try that piece and give me a bite to sample! It was soo good, and it wasn’t overly sweet – which I really like! You can definitely tell there was coconut flavours in this delicate chiffon cake. In between the layers of the coconut chiffon cake was coconut toffee and coconut butter cream. I wouldn’t mind getting a slice of this myself next time I’m there! I am a huge fan of coconut flavours!
The last piece of cake we ordered for the night was the Dulce de Leche Cake which looks overly sweet, but in reality, it was quite well balanced with the cinnamon flavoured vanilla chiffon layered with dulce de leche and pecans with milk chocolate ganache. The cake did get too sweet when the only thing left was just the ganache and no cake!
