Frappe Bliss and Qoola in Aberdeen Mall

Foodology December 23, 2010 Dessert, Richmond, Two Beakers

Frappe Bliss serves up flavoured shaved ice at Aberdeen Mall. The flavours can range from Mango to Peanut. This little kiosk is actually owned by Fairchild. Isn’t that interesting? It’s like they practically own most of everything in the mall. Frappe Bliss has moved around in many locations in the food court, but they currently reside between the Mambo Cafe and the Anime store.

Frappe Bliss was actually my first job that I ever had. I was so glad the job didn’t last long because as an Chinese person who can’t speak Cantonese or Mandarin, it was a HARD job! It was like trying to guess what people were trying to order. It makes you think, why they even hired me in the first place.

If you are an indecisive person, you can choose from the items on the left or you can customize your own by choosing the flavour of ice and toppings.

They first take a block of flavoured ice and put it in the ice shredding machine to turn the block of ice into the shaved ice you know and perhaps love! If you compact all the shaved ice that you get….it comes out to be  less than a cup of liquid. 🙁

I ordered the Peanut Iceburg ($3.60). It has peanut ice, chocolate sauce, and peanuts. This was pretty gross. The chocolate sauce was too sweet, and the peanut ice didn’t taste very peanut like. Three years ago, they had this amazing peanut sauce which you could have added, but I guess they stopped making it. I wasn’t satisfied with it. After eating this I wanted some frozen yogurt.

Since FinanceGirl didn’t want Frappe Bliss, the went downstairs to Qoola to get some dessert.

She got the chocolate frozen yogurt and SFUPretender and I thought it had a very sour taste for chocolate but we assumed it was the yogurt taste.

I guess she was in a very chocolaty mood since she added chocolate chips and chocolate sprinkles all over her chocolate frozen yogurt. If you are a traditionalist, stuck with the regular one or the green tea flavour. You can’t go wrong with those.
