On the 10th of August I organised a vegan frozen yogurt party. Frurt Frozen Yogurt have made dairy free soft serve since opening their Whitworth St and Spinningfields (now closed) stores. The Prestwich location is self service by weight so can often work out at ridiculous prices for even a standard pot (around £7-£9 when at the couner serve it would be £2.50-£4)I think this is due to how much they aerate it in the counter service stores. Much better value is a party package, at £5 per person you can fill 2 xtra small or one small pot. For my group I chose the 2 option as I presumed it would minimise flavour mixing and melting, I was happy with this choice.
Our choices on the night were somewhat disappointing as they were both berry flavoured (Strawberry Kiwi and Mixed Berry) I had been assured on booking that there would be at least 1 non fruity flavour in DF that day, however staff explained that they had intended to do chocolate coconut milk too- but the machine broke so we were stuck with the flavours already made up. However due to the wide variety of toppings and sauces – Oreos, Jelly Sweets, Dates, Raisins, Nuts, Almonds, Coconut, Banana, Dried Banana, Mango, Kiwi, Strawberry, Blueberry, Rasberry, Maple Syrup, Chocolate Syrup and Squeezy Jam- we managed to experience 2 different creations anyway. Yumm, Delicious!
I was also happy to see Sweetbird Syrup was stocked so I ordered a Soya Pumpkin Spice Latte, others in the group drank Iced Mochas, Cappuchinos and Chocolate Tea – It was good to see a wide variety of beverages- I also noticed Chai tea, Green Tea, Pom Juice and Coconut Water were on offer. Drinks prices ranged from £1.50 to £3.00
We had brought our own food which was fine with the venue (self clean) and there was plenty of room in the establishment for us to feel comfortable on the beanbags and couches. Overall It was a good experience however miscommunication between the online social media representatives/ for the company and the actual managers and team at the locations mean’t I will be much more wary with online inquiries in the future. It was absolutely pitiful and a good job we called the location on the day as she had only just been told a group were visiting and given incorrect information regarding numbers.
Its great that we have somewhere serving dairy free soft serve in Manchester, my favorite flavours at Whitworth St have included Almond-Choc, Chocolate Fudge, Mango, Green Tea and Pink Lemonade. They also make a yummy oreo milkshake and have hot toppings such as hot peanut butter and jam, melted dark chocolate and hot lotus biscoff spread.
Thanks for reading and I hope
you enjoyed my snaps, albeit some being dodgy due to lighting etc.
