Cold Stone’s ice cream, made in-store daily, inhabits a quantum flux between soft-serve and traditional ice cream, with a rich, creamy texture that whispers tales of its super-premium quality as it glides over taste buds. Ice-cream voyeurs can create their own ice-creamplosion from old favourites or unheard of delights ($2.89–$4.59 with two mix-ins), eliciting taste tests of dozens of silky flavours such as cake batter, cotton candy, and piñata. Each ice-cream creation generously welcomes up to two of the shop's dozens of mix-ins as traditional as Oreo cookies and chopped nuts or as quirky as pie crust. Those willing to bequeath the invention of creamy concoctions to the professionals can try a Cold Stone Signature creation, such as the almond-studded and caramel-slathered Coffee Lovers Only or the Peanut Butter Cup Perfection with Reese's peanut-butter cups, fudge, and a side of endorphins ($3.99–$5.75). Once concoctions are chosen and perfected, they're scooped cold into freshly made waffle cones or bowls.

A bakery outlet for Canada Bread Company Limited, McGavin's offers rows of loaves at wholesale prices. Fill bare cupboards or secret floorboard compartments with discount bread facing a dwindling shelf life, surplus bread from overzealous production lines, and fresh bread from local bakeries. McGavin's white or 100 per cent whole-wheat loaves (five loaves for $10.49) prove eminently slatherable. Other yeasty feasts include Dempster's Bagel six packs (three packs for $8.99), english muffin six packs (three packages for $6.99), and tortillas (three packages for $8.25). The popular discount special section, meanwhile, invites gluten gourmands to mix and match an ever-changing cast of short-dated dough bookends: every product, regardless of size, grain, or resemblance to Winston Churchill costs $1.39, and shoppers can mix and match an assortment of ten loaves for $12. Discount selections change daily and vary by location.

Jessie's Juice is the fruit-infused brainchild of local and award-winning country music artist Jessie Farrell, whose venture into non-musical artistry includes a menu of wholesome smoothies, raw and organic food items from local artisans, and her self-designed Jessie's Tea. Pink walls and a checkered floor beckon guests into the shop, where a whir of blenders transforms organic and local fruit, superfoods, and other ingredients into sippable smoothie potions. As daily soup offerings and a selection of raw, vegan, and gluten-free food options lasso their seductive aromas around noses, guests may sign the heart-shaped guest book or enjoy their purchases on the shop's wood bench that sticks its tongue out whenever it senses a stray drop falling.

Crumsby’s Cupcake Café fashions tasty, colourful treats from scratch in a multitude of flavours that run the gamut from classic to unexpected. Cupcakes are baked on-site in small batches with quality ingredients for a fresh, nostalgic taste that trumps teething on a carousel slide projector. Traditionalists can enjoy chocolate-on-chocolate or vanilla-on-vanilla treats, and confectionary mavericks can gobble a tiramisu or toasted-marshmallow cupcake. Gluten-free and vegan options are also available for sweet-teeth with special dietary needs. Crumsby’s is open Monday through Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Though he couldn't have known it at the time, Adam Caldwell arranged what arguably could be considered one of the most successful first dates in modern history. He not only ended up marrying his date, Danna, but also had such a memorable time with her in the frozen-yogurt shop that the two of them were eventually inspired to start their own. They opened Menchie's Frozen Yogurt in California in 2007, and within just a few years, found themselves with a family of hundreds of thriving stores sprinkled all around the world.

As the Menchie's brand grew, Adam and Danna kept a simple mission in mind: to make their customers smile. An adorable cast of animated characters is featured throughout the stores, including on the colorful spoons, and customers can have fun creating endless frozen-yogurt combinations. There are almost 150 rotating yogurt flavors, and the selection includes eight versions of vanilla. Of course, there are plenty of toppings as well, displayed in help-yourself bins filled with fresh fruit, nuts, cereal, and candy.

The yogurt is made from fresh milk from a Canadian dairy. All the yogurt is kosher, and certain flavors accommodate vegan and gluten-free diets.
