Menchie's Frozen Yogurt

Menchie's is a fairly new contender in the Frozen Yogurt game, and is up against some stiff competition! Menchie's concept is virtually identical to Qoola. The frozen yogurt is self serve, you just weigh, and pay!  Menchie's is located in Highgate Plaza in Burnaby. For the longest time I thought it was "Munchie's" because, doesn't that just make more logical sense than Menchie's? Munchies, because you're munching on yogurt? haha I digress...
Menchie's offers a lot of unique frozen yogurt and sorbet combinations! What differentiates them from Qoola is that they offer a lot more sorbet options, for those who are allergic to dairy or lactose intolerant. They even give you the option to combine two flavours in a swirl!
I also like how their toppings are in clear acrylic boxes so you can see all the toppings. With Qoola, the toppings are covered with a lid that you can't see through so you have to read the label.
You can also get your frozen yogurt with a waffle cone! I like how Menchie's is dipped in chocolate :)
2/5 stars
I decided on the Raspberry Lemonade sorbet. Don't you just love the colour? haha. Sadly, this looked alot better than it tasted. The lemonade flavour was very potent, and I could definitely pick up notes of Raspberry. It didn't taste bad per se, but it just didn't taste like high quality sorbet. It tasted a little too icy, in other words, it actually tasted watered down (if that's possible.)
The almonds were also strangely salty. They were probably the saltiest almonds I had ever had, ever. The saltiness was so overwhelming it distracted from the other components of the yogurt.

Overall, I like Menchie's store layout and its relaxing ambience, but the food just isn't up to par with contenders like Pinkberry or Qoola.
