We were wandering around Banff, when we stumbled upon a new frozen yogurt place which was neat as we’ve been seeing a lot more of these places pop up. This particular one is called Skoki’s and it’s located right on Banff Ave, which is an optimal location!
Once you walk in, you walk along the left wall to the back where you pick up a cup or line up for a waffle bowl. The waffle bowls look pretty thin, but I wasn’t hungry so I opt’ed for just a normal bowl. As you walk along the wall, you come to the wall with all the frozen yogurts. Fill it up with as much or as little of your favourite flavours!
When you’re done picking your selection – you can go to the topping bar and load your cup with toppings! Then, you get your bowl weighted and paid.
Finally, you get to enjoy your custom created treat! The yogurt was really good and the topping selection was quite large. It definitely was a great little treat!

I have been on a Frozen yogurt craze once I learned about them. I was in the north this one evening, and decided to take a walk through Market Mall in Northwest Calgary and found myself in front of Qoola Frozen Yogurt Bar which is located near the Bay entrance to the mall.
I walked in without question, right to the back where you grab a bowl and fill it up with frozen yogurt. They had a nice selection of flavours, which is great!
After I selected my flavours, I went straight to the topping bar where I topped my froyo with all sorts of goodies. One thing that really stuck in my mind that was kind of neat was their Green Tea Mochi, which was a big green blob that was green tea flavour! They had lots of bursting bubbles or bobas which is pretty neat to me, and I’ve only experienced this through frozen yogurt – so be sure to grab some!
After my visit to the topping bar, we weight the cups and pay per ounce that we selected. Then, of course we sit down and enjoy the creations!
I quite like the topping selection here and the frozen yogurt isn’t full of ice crystals. It’s really smooth and tastes like the flavours it claims it’s suppose to! It’s a great treat and it’s always welcome as you can pick as much or as little of whatever!

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!
