According to Jess: SwUrl Up Some Fun

23 Aug

Hello lovely readers! For my first food-spot review, I’d like to share with you the gem that is SwUrl Frozen Yogurt. Let’s face it: whatever psychotic weather Montreal has in store for its inhabitants, we can all use a sweet treat every now and then! My mission, as the person who often says that sandwiches are too much of a commitment since they involve TWO pieces of bread, is always to find the healthiest treat WITHOUT sacrificing the sweet flavor. That’s when fro-yo “SwUrl”ed into my life!

Located on Crescent Street in the heart of downtown Montreal, SwUrl is a self-serve frozen yogurt shop featuring 8 different flavors: 4 of which are fruity and tart, and the other 4 are sweet and creamy, but all of which are super tasty, gluten-free and, oh yeah, FAT-FREE. Once you help yourself to your choice of frozen-yogurt, you walk over to wonderland AKA the topping section, where you can add LITTERALLY ANYTHING to your yogurt! Among the topping choices are SUPER FRESH fruits, assorted gummies, different cereals, chips, crushed up oreos/smarties, the best homemade granola that exists, and assorted chocolates and cookies. My personal fave? The Poptarts! (Hello childhood memories!). If you love trying new things, their Mochi (Japanese rice-based candy) and Popping Boba (balls of fruit juice) are yummy as well. The next step is to weigh your creation and pay according to that.

Four of the yogurt flavors change every Monday, so whether you’re a first time SwUrler or part of their loyal following,you can always find something new and exciting! Past flavors include cupcake, red velvet, strawberry, blackberry, lime, cookies and cream, and oh yeah, BACON. When in doubt, they always have chocolate, vanilla, original, and pomegranate (all solid choices!).

The Verdict: This place is a fantasyland! What got me in the door the first time was the low calorie count, but what keeps me coming back is the creativity and love of food that exudes from this brightly colored shop! Another added bonus: every time I walk in, I get to relive my childhood! #goodtimes

Happy “SwUrl”ing!!

Much Love,
