After the movie we decided to try the brand new Qoola in Metrotown, which just opened in January 2010. Having never gone to any other Qoola locations, we weren't sure what to expect. But it's basically a self serve frozen yogurt bar, where you get your own paper cup, swirl your own frozen yogurt into the container, and put any toppings you want.
The first thing we noticed is that the cup they provide is HUGE. This is the tricky bit, because you pay by the weight, and you naturally want to fill that big cup, right? Beware. But what's great is that they have a lot of choice as far as frozen yogurt go: chocolate, vanilla, green tea, mango, lychee, and original.
I opted for the original and mango flavours, with a little strawberry and pineapple on top. The original is great, with a real yogurt flavour and a nice tang. The mango was really good too, with true mango flavour. The fruit was refreshing.
Shane got the green tea, and lychee flavours, with mango on top. Both were tasty, with the green tea being very mild having a subtle tea aftertaste. The lychee tasted very much like lychee, with slightly smoky undercurrent, if that makes sense.
We enjoyed the Qoola experience quite a lot. Both of our favourites was the original. However, it is a tad pricey. Each half-filled container was around $3.50, so a full container would be a whopping seven bucks. Still, we'd return for a once in a while treat.
