One of my favourite things to eat in the summer is froyo! This summer, I’ll be satisfying all of my frozen yogurt cravings with Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt and I’m hoping you’ll do the same!

We visited the Spruce Grove Menchies location (360/370 4 McLeod Avenue, Spruce Grove)!

I’m excited to team up with Menchies to give away a Menchie’s VIP Summer Pass!

This includes coupons for 7 free cups of Menchies frozen yogurt!

Now this giveaway is a bit different from the ones I normally do – it’s a bit more work on your part, but the reward will be so sweet (literally).

The fruit bar! at Menchies.

A big reason why I love getting frozen yogurt is because it really becomes my creation. No one else will ever have the exact same cup of froyo as me! That’s the beauty (and fun) of it. I generally avoid all the candy and go for the fruits! The popping boba/pearls, strawberries, kiwis, and sometimes pineapple are on my must-get for froyo toppings. Here’s #MenchiesMyWay earlier this week:

My #MenchiesMyWay = tart froyo with popping boba, strawberries, kiwi, berry candy and chocolate chips!

In this case I even went a bit crazy and added some berry candies and little chocolate chips! I know some people only ever do candy but there’s something comforting about going for that tried and true combination you know will be tasty. I am usually quite loyal to my plain “tart” yogurt base, but some people get adventurous. We saw they now offer a new Nutella yogurt. We didn’t try that, but here’s Mike giving Menchie’s new Oreo flavour a go!

There are so many – really endless options – that it’s always fun to see what people come up with. That’s why I want to see what your frozen yogurt creation is!

Tell me (no- show me!) what’s your #MenchiesMyWay?!

I love Menchie’s stores – so bright and fun!



To enter for a chance to win a Menchie’s VIP Summer Pass (7 coupons for free froyo – valued at $56), you must:

  • Tweet or Instagram a photo of your Menchie’s creation and include the hashtag #MenchiesMyWay + the name of your creation.
  • If tweeting, include @Menchies_CA and me @lindork in the tweet.
  • If Instagramming, include @Menchies_Canada and me @lindork in the Instagram caption.
  • You also need to be following @Menchies_CA and me @lindork on Twitter or @Menchies_Canada and me @lindork on Instagram (depending on the platform you choose to share your #MenchiesMyWay creation).

I’ll be picking my winner based on the overall presentation of your #MenchiesMyWay creation and also judging on the name of your creation (so the wittier, funnier, more suitable to the actual creation it is, the better!) Like I said, this giveaway is a bit more labour intensive than the other ones I’ve run but it’ll be so much fun (and delicious).

I can’t wait to see your creation!

I’ll be taking entries until Monday, August 3 at 10 p.m. – so you’ve got just over two weeks to visit your nearest Menchies and create a #MenchiesMyWay.

P.S. Here are some fun facts about Menchie’s!

  • This summer (2015), Menchie’s will have 116 locations across Canada and are planning to have another nine by the end of the year
  • The new Oreo cookie flavour is now one of over 150 flavours available at Menchie’s
  • Menchie’s is the largest growing frozen yogurt franchise in Canada

Good luck and stay cool this summer!
