Several weeks back I got a surprise follower on twitter, @frogurtyyc, not having heard of them before I was intrigued to find a local, Calgary owned and operated frozen yogurt shop as opposed to the tons of American owned frozen yogurt chains (menchies, tutti-fruitti etc.) that have slowly begun to invade our city over the last year.Β 

Their description was simple: locally owned and operated, saying no to powdered and artificial fro-yo, and supporting local businesses. This immediately had me hooked and I finally made it down last weekend. Now, I can only speak for their Kensington location but their flavour selection was great, ranging from raspberry dairy-free sorbet to peanut butter and classic chocolate. They had more topping choices than their large chain counters and yummy sauces as options. I ended up swirling the raspberry with the orange-mango and topping it with fresh pineapple chunks…yum-o.Β 

Their staff was knowledgeable about gluten-free choices which makes you guys stars in my eyes. All in all, visiting frogurt was a different experiences than my visits to other fro-yo businesses and the creamy texture, and rich, fresh taste were qualities that others have failed to create. This is a place worth the extra drive time to get to, watch out menchies: Calgary has a new frozen yogurt mogul on the block, and their doing it better screaming “catch me if you can!”.Β
