I know the weather here in Edmonton has recently taken a turn towards the 'minus" digits complete with a slight wind chill, however, that should never take away the need for a snack of frozen yogurt! Well, the opportunity to get your Tutti Frutti fix can be had not only on Whyte Ave in Central Edmonton, Southgate, but now also in West Edmonton Mall (WEM). Near the end of September, Tutti Frutti launched this location which is on the main floor of the mall near Galaxyland (closest to entrance #8). I, along with some fellow bloggers and food enthusiasts were invited to their media launch to take some photos of their new space and to try out the frozen yogurts on tap.
As many have noted, this Tutti Frutti is smaller than their Whyte Ave & Southgate location. There are only three machines, providing the opportunity for 6 flavours to be available at any point in time. However, their concept is still the same. It is still self-serve where you get to crank out your desired TF flavours and add the toppings you want (e.g. fruits, jellies, gummies, chocolate!). Even though they may have a limited number of TF options, it doesn't distract from the tastiness of one they have available. On the day of their opening they had TF Tart, Green Tea, Strawberry Fields, Salted Caramel, NSA Chocolate, and Soy Peanut Butter.
TF changes the flavours that they have "on tap" quite regularly across all their locations, so if you're pining away for a particular flavour follow them on twitter
@TFFroyoYEG or through their facebook page.

In early October Tutti Frutti also opened their Millwoods Town Center location. There are also plans to open another location in North Edmonton, Windermere and St. Albert. If you aren't in Edmonton, have no fear as you can also get your Tutti Frutti fix! There are currently locations in Victoria, BC., Medicine Hat, AB., Moose Jaw, SK,, Brandon, MB., and Richmond Hill, ON. Locations coming soon are those in Saskatoon, SK., Calgary, AB., Kamloops, BC., and Regina, SK. For the most up-to-date info on where locations are and when they will be opening please check their location webpage here: http://tfyogurt.ca/locations/.
