Review: Twisted Yogurt

Twisted Yogurt Spruce Grove at 131 Century Crossing Road.

This week Mike and I went to Twisted Yogurt in Spruce Grove’s new Century Crossing outdoor shopping centre (#204, 131 Century Crossing Road). We’d been to Twisted Yogurt’s Calgary Trail Edmonton location a couple times before and I had always meant to do up a review but never got around to it. We live on the very west end of Edmonton so going to Spruce Grove takes us about the same time that it would to drive to West Edmonton mall (10 ish minutes). When I saw that Twisted Yogurt was one of the newly opened shops in Spruce Grove’s newest shopping area, I had to make a point of going! (More on all the slick new shops in this area later).

Inside Twisted Yogurt Spruce Grove at 131 Century Crossing Road.

It looks basically identical to the Calgary Trail location with neat lights, colourfully-painted orange and green walls and your yogurt serving area on the back wall.

There are two cup sizes (I think there are three at the Calgary Trail location) and I think the small size is more than enough!

Candy and chocolate toppings area at Twisted Yogurt Spruce Grove.

There’s a chocolate, candy, cereal toppings area which is always fun to look at. I’ve never actually added any of the coke bottles, gummy worms, crushed skores or butterfingers to my frogurt creations before (I can’t imagine the combination would taste very good but I also don’t have much of a sweet tooth). Mike always heads for that area though!

More candy toppings at Twisted Yogurt Spruce Grove.

There’s even more candy toppings you can add by the till, which I also typically ignore.

Fruit toppings at Twisted Yogurt Spruce Grove.

Then there’s the fruit section, my favourite! I always add kiwi and strawberry pieces to my creation. There’s also raspberries, mango, kiwi, pomegranate, blackberries, watermelon, pineapple and then whatever else depending on the season. I also LOVE their lychee (“litchi”) mini popping balls.

My Twisted Yogurt creation - Plain yogurt, lychee mini mochi balls, kiwi and strawberry pieces.

The above is my frozen yogurt creation with as I said my favourite kiwi and strawberry pieces plus the popping balls. The balls are just these tiny balls that literally burst fruit flavour in your mouth. Tastes great (I’m a huge fan of lychee flavour) and is like a party in your mouth. Seriously!

Mike's Twisted Yogurt creation - Red velvet yogurt with Snickers and peanut butter pieces.

Mike’s Twisted Yogurt creations are always more unusual than mine. Last time he got a Coke flavoured yogurt base with gummies and other random candies (he didn’t like it). This time he got the Red Velvet yogurt with Snickers and peanut butter pieces. He liked it more than the Coke creation but still didn’t love it. In fact Mike’s never really liked enjoyed of the times we’ve gone to Twisted Yogurt. I blame him though – it’s about what you mix and if you’re going to be mixing things that naturally don’t belong, it’s not going to taste great. But I guess that’s also part of the fun! Mixing and adding toppings and flavours that may or may not go well together! ;)

New Century Crossing shopping area in Spruce Grove.

Twisted Yogurt is a great addition to Spruce Grove’s Century Crossing. They’ve also recently added a Famoso, an Oodle Noodle, and a Booster Juice. There’s a new Winners, Save-on-Foods and Shoppers Drug Mart and there’s another section of buildings that still have yet to reveal what shop it will end up being. It’s a very slick-looking area with a very clean promenade and behind all of the new stores is a cheap movie theatre! It all makes for a great new spot to spend an afternoon.

For west-end Edmontonians it should definitely be considered for date night ventures.

I always have a nice time going to Twisted Yogurt. I’ve tried a few different frogurt places in the U.S. and Twisted Yogurt’s pretty much on par. (Haven’t tried any other froyo places in Edmonton yet though so I’m not sure how it compares, although honestly I don’t see how people can really go wrong with any yogurt plus fruit combination dessert). The cost of your creation depends on how much it weighs. It costs about 49 cents an ounce. Both mine and Mike’s together came out to about $10 so it’s a pretty cheap treat.

Have you been to Twisted Yogurt? What did you think??

    I have been to Tutti Fruti (the “other” frozen yogurt place) as well as Twisted Yogurt and I found Tutti Fruti a bit better than Twisted Yogurt. Not sure if it was time of the day or time of the year; however, the “problem” with Twisted Yogurt’s offering was that they were too soft for my liking. Not even a minute after they were served, it was starting to melt already! In the end, it was the taro flavour in Tutti Fruti won me over. As for toppings, I don’t care much about them. I prefer mine plain.

    Personally, though, I am not a fan of frozen yogurt. Feel free to call me cheap but $10 for is expensive! I would rather go to any supermarket and get a tube of ice cream. After all, hey, dessert is a treat and, if I go for dessert, I will go for broke, hahaha! Now, if it is to go for cheap, Costco’s $2 soft serve works for me as well! :)

      You’re right! Come to think of it my yogurt also melted pretty quickly. But still yummy. A tube of ice cream would be cheaper but I think it’s worth the money for the night out/experience. :)

    Hi! This the first time I have been on your site. Thanks for the great review for Spruce Grove’s newest shopping area. Would you mind changing “cheap movie theatre” to “inexpensive movie theatre”? Thanks :-)

  • darrell dupas

    Well my first visit to twisted y was today. Inexpensive I think not. Mine was 10 dollars, guess I am used to deserts of the larger variety. I won’t be going back, this is over the top. Don’t care if its trendy, wasn’t amazing either.

  • The Vivo Pizza ๐Ÿ• at @vivoristoranteyeg is SO tasty! Pulled chicken, signature Vivo sauce, grana padano ๐Ÿง€ Tried a lot of great dishes tonight at #VivoDowntown (behind #MacEwanU) for their new #happyhour #aperitivo menu launch including this one. Good deals, Monday to Friday 3-6 p.m., and 11-6 on weekends too! It was also really nice to meet Vivo @ChefMedi.

  • An Instagrammable Wall blast from my past! I used to work at @globaledmonton doing a bunch of things over a few years.. video editing, web producing, news producing, writing and helping people in the Troubleshooter department! Been wanting to photograph this wall for awhile now (#IGWallsofYEG) and finally did this weekend. โ˜บ๏ธApparently it's also a #PokemonGo hot spot lol. ๐Ÿ˜…

  • Had an awesome time touring Instagrammable Walls of Chinatown / east Downtown this weekend with my co-host @britl & this great group of people! There is no shortage of things to do in Edmonton in the summer so I definitely appreciated these guys choosing an #IGWallsofYEG #photowalk! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป This wall is called #ThunderBirdAlley on 105 Ave between 96 and 97 Street. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป Would largely go unnoticed for those walking or driving along 97 Street but definitely deserves some attention! Another walk is in the works for September, stay tuned! โ˜บ๏ธ

  • Dreaming of gelato. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿง I was out in #SturgeonCounty tonight at the annual Sturgeon County Bounty #CulinaryCookout and this raspberry lime gelato from @davincigelato was lovely. The #SturgeonCountyBounty is such a stellar event - think Taste of Edmonton & Heritage Festival with awesome #tasteab food but more of a relaxed, less crowded environment, great portion sizes / value, that fresh country air and lovely live music! Mark your calendars for next year- add it to your summer festival list! Check my IG Stories and my pal @argenplath's feed for more scenes from the festival! ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • A feast for dinner tonight with @littlmissandrea and our baes at the new Nara Chicken & Tonkatsu on the west end! ๐Ÿ˜‹ We basically tried their whole menu ๐Ÿ˜… and thought it was great! A pretty casual spot in a strip mall, with quick service, affordable prices, and tasty dishes! Welcome to the neighbourhood, Nara. ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป
