Choose your own swirl with dairy and non-dairy options.
A new ice cream shop in Metro Vancouver is allowing customers to create their own cold treat with its unique “custom swirl” offering.
Langley-based Flavr opened in time for peak ice cream season this year and wants to welcome more candy lovers to choose their own whirlwind business.
“Our mission was all about positivity,” said Adam Jones of Flavr Vancouver is awesome by email. “People are going to treat themselves to ice cream because they’re in a good mood and want to treat themselves or they want to treat themselves to put themselves in a good mood.”
“We wanted to create an experience where a customer could create their own treat or even tweak one of our recipes to match their craving, with the cool experience of seeing their fresh treat created right in front of them,” Jones adds.
How to Create Your Custom Frozen Treat
Flavr not only offers a set menu of flavors, but also offers an array of premium ingredients that you can choose to swirl into your base of choice, which are dairy, non-dairy, or frozen yogurt.
You can pair your base of choice with fresh fruit for a New Zealand-style swirl, or you can create your own recipe of mixes and bases – think components like cheesecake, cereals, nuts, chocolate chips and more.
If you’d rather go with something from the menu, Flavr has nearly 20 options, like “Coffee Talk” (dark chocolate base infused with a blend of espresso, Skor chips, and chocolate chips. finished with chocolate chips Skor and a chocolate drizzle) or “Silly Rabbit” (vanilla base infused with strawberries, blueberries and Trix cereal, finished with Froot Loop dust and a strawberry drizzle).
And there are other key choices to make: Flavr will load your choice into cups or cones, but they can also make smoothies or shakes. Ice cream mixes are also available by the pint.
Flavr is located at #501 – 22259 48th Ave. in Langley and is open Monday to Thursday from 1 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Fridays from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 9 p.m.
