Frozen Yogurt Shops? Ice Cream Shops? It’s SO hard to find allergy-friendly shops of this kind. But Menchie’s has got you covered! With a few locations in the US and Canada – Menchie’s has a wide variety of frozen yogurt flavors with wonderful allergy labeling.
We visited a location in the heart of Downtown Toronto and had a wonderful experience. Each frozen yogurt machine had information on the allergens present and cross contaminated allergens! From our experiences in Canada and in the US, we learnt that the Vanilla and Chocolate flavors typically stay in their same machine, as well as some of the fruit flavors to avoid flavors with other allergens causing cross contamination! Furthermore, they try to rotate flavors with nuts (such as Nutella) in the same machines to avoid spreading of the allergen. They still follow strict allergy protocols to clean the machines in between flavors to avoid cross contamination.
Head on over to Menchie’s and fill yourself up a cup of frozen yogurt with your favorite flavors today! And here’s one more thing ~ add toppings! Most Menchie’s locations segregate their nut toppings from their nut free toppings so people with nut allergies can add things to their frozen yogurt too! What a treat 🙂
Check out their interactive online menu chalk full of information about each flavor including but not limited to: allergens, presence/absence of high fructose corn syrup, “real” ingredients, live/active cultures, and more!
