Blueberry World Natural Premium Frozen Yogurt
Address: 1703 Robson Street (near Denman), Vancouver, BC
This bright Korean shop has super yummy frozen yogurt with a vast array of crazy topping options. The available yogurt flavors are smooth and creamy original or smooth and tangy green tea. It’s a little pricey but a million times better than say…the Dairy Queen around the corner.
The sizes begin at 5oz for a mere $2.75 and fly up to a ridiculously big 13oz for $6.75. The toppings are 95 cents each or 3 for $1.50. Unlike the lame and overrated yogen fruz; Blueberry doesn’t cram the ingredients together via a machine. Blueberry piles the toppings around the edges so you can appreciate each lovely flavor on its own good merit. From red bean and tiny rice balls, to fresh strawberries and blackberries, to fruit loops and gummi bears – the endless topping possibilities are a tasty brain teaser. Okay, not endless – but there are 23 different options. So, if you’re getting 3 toppings…that’s 10626 possible flavor combos. If you can’t find something you’ll like from that….well you’re too damn picky. If you’re unsure what to get – the friendly, efficient staff will be quick to help you out with a suggestion or a sample.
The nutritional information posted on the wall is slightly misleading as it’s based on a 1oz serving. But still, in 1oz there are no trans or saturated fats, low levels of carbs and sodium, and 5 grams of sugar — for a total of 25 calories (which is a helluva lot lower than an ice cream).
My only real complaint is that the cute white and green shop can only seat a maximum of 12 and there are only 2 seats outside (even during the summer). But who really cares, you can always wander around Denman with it or take it 3 blocks down and sit in the park or near the harbor.
The fruit’s always fresh, the shop’s always spotless, the service is always friendly. High fives all around! Blueberry’s perfect for a refreshing sweet treat that’s not too bad for you (depending on your choice of toppings). They also offer smoothies and snowy ices for somewhere between $5 and $8.
Open: Sun-Thurs 11am – 11pm, Fri and Sat 11am – 2am

Pinback – Summer in abaddon
This indie-pop album is my favorite of Pinback’s — it’s catchy and moody while still being chill.
Hot Chip – Made in the dark
I can describe both this album and myself with the same line: good fun that’s lacking focus.
