    Last week I discovered Swurl (frozen yogurt café) in Montreal.  Brand-new, Swurl opened its doors the previous Thursday.  Co-owned and operated by Brian Etcovitch and Alexia Bitton, Swurl was conceived while Brian lived in LA devouring the fro-yo craze.

    All flavours are fat-free, nut-free, and homemade.  Perhaps not as vibrant as if made from real fruit, they’re an excellent base for the real stars of the show: toppings! 

    Multi-grain cheerios, rice krispies, fruit loops, lucky charms, mini marshmallows, graham cracker crumbs, gluten-free granola, vanilla wafers, oreos, smarties, chocolate chip cookies

    Toppings run the gamut from assorted fruit to cereals, Mae West pieces (YUM!), gummies, cookie pieces, sprinkles, sauces, and crumbled waffle cone. 

    gummi bears, twizzlers, sour patch kids, swedish berries, pop tarts, white chocolate pieces, yogurt covered raisins

    apples, strawberries, bananas, blueberries, watermelon, raspberries, mango, red grapes, dried cranberries, mae west

    Instructions are simple: 

    Easy as 1-2-3

    Results delicious!
