The warm aroma of freshly baked waffle cones envelops every nook and cranny of Marble Slab Creamery, revving up guests? senses with the promise of impending decadence. As the hand-rolled cones tan in their ovens, the store?s staff bustles about the premises whipping up fresh batches of premium ice cream in the on-site creamery and helping patrons select a flavour from a list of more than 50 options. This chef-driven dedication to gourmet ice cream began in 1983 with the company?s founding in Houston, Texas, when two French chefs were enlisted to create a recipe for Marble Slab Creamery?s signature sweet-cream ice cream using their culinary expertise.

Today, staffers utilize the frozen-slab technique of ice-cream architecture, scooping each customer?s choice of ice cream and mix-ins onto a chilled marble slab to mix the separate elements into one custom m?lange. Though specializing in cone-based ice-cream treats, Marble Slab Creamery also offers a menu full of other scream-worthy confections including cakes, shakes, and pie ? la mode.

From foodies to celebrities, to trendwatchers and Pinkberry's own fanbase of groupies, the buzz about Pinkberry has been sweeping the world. Excitement was high from the very beginning when in 2005 Pinkberry opened its first store in West Hollywood, CA. The demand for the swirls of yogurt was so high that Pinkberry was dubbed the "taste that launched 1,000 parking tickets" by the Los Angeles Times. Undeterred by parking regulations, people were drawn in by their cravings for the yogurt, the abundance of toppings, the bright and energetic modern store design, and the kind smiles of the staff. With over 220 locations in 18 countries, Pinkberry is now one of the most talked about premium frozen yogurts in the world.

Starting with a base of Canadian non-fat, hormone-free milk and non-fat yogurt, Pinkberry's artisans incorporate live and active cultures into the mixture to create a healthy, refreshing treat. The original yogurt is always available, but staffers also swirl new seasonal flavours throughout the year, such as chocolate hazelnut, pomegranate, and cherry. The selection of fresh fruit rotates with the seasons and is cut daily in each store. Other toppings, such as honey almond granola, dark chocolate crisps, swirl pearls, and Italian caramel, allow customers to create a new and inspired flavour combination every visit.

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.

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.
