When I was a kid Toronto was a regular vacation spot for me as we came to visit family that dwells here. I remember getting so excited to touchdown in Canada because it meant I could gorge on all the magical delights that one couldn’t find over in the UK; tantalizing treats such as Kraft Dinner, grape flavoured ice-pops (grape flavoured anything come to think of it), Fruit Loops, Wonderbread… and frozen yogurt.
That’s right! Back then frozen yogurt wasn’t really a ‘thing’ in old Blightly, so imagine my delight when we would make the journey to the mall to visit Yogen Fruz where I would pile my cup high with the frozen goodness and devour every last drop with rabid pleasure. Of course, today the delicious delight can be found in abundance and I don’t have to take a plane ride to get my fix! Check out our top 5 spots next time you need yours…
What started as a celeb favourite in California is now available dotted throughout the city, including a location in the Annex where you’ll find a self-serve sundae bar with tons of naughtiness to top your fro-yo. Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, anyone?
128 Cumberland Street
Located in the chic Yorkville ‘hood, these purveyors of the good stuff offer 10 regularly rotating flavours, including sugar-free and dairy-free options. Oodles of toppings and a waffle cone upgrade option make this is an essential pit-shop to cool off after a hard day of shopping.
YoYo’s Yogurt Café
417 Bloor Street W.
Offering 8 flavours (2 dairy-free) and always-rotating topping options, YoYo’s offers yummy yogurt to the people of the Annex who need it on hot summer days. As an added bonus you can take a load off and enjoy their fat-free frozen yogurt on their cute little patio.
This Canadian-owned chain has blown up with locations speckled all around the city. Their growing popularity no doubt has something to do with the abundance of fanciful flavours they offer, including triple butter pecan, lychee green tea, and white chocolate truffle. (Drool.)
573 Yonge Street
You’ll pay slightly less at this Yonge and Wellesley spot than you will at others in the city. They are open until 11pm every day – other than Saturdays when they are open until midnight – making it the perfect after-dinner drop-in on a warm summer’s night.
