What I tried:
Charcoal and ube flavored soft serve with charcoal cones.
Located in a Lululemon store in the heart of Toronto on Queen St.
We did not have to wait at all for our cones as it was not busy. I have heard that the store usually has a 1 hour wait but the pop up did amazing.
The charcoal soft serve stains everything! Speaking from my experience there, do not wear white! I should have known better.
The charcoal flavor is the most popular one (and most instagramable). Try the other flavors if you can as they have charcoal, ube, matcha and vanilla. You can also experiment and have all four flavors in a twist.
Some months they also have special feature flavors. Be sure to try those if you have the chance or if you live in Toronto. Mango, Red vanilla bean and a pumpkin spice cone were past special flavors.
The service was decent. They explained to me the types of flavors they had and what was popular.
The charcoal soft serve was delicious. I have had some charcoal flavored ice creams where the charcoal flavors were too strong and overpowering. This was subtle yet powerful along with hints of coconut. Although it does stain everything that gets in its way, it is expected with this flavor. This soft serve is light and very refreshing.
The ube flavor was delicious as well. I only wished the ube flavors were a little stronger for this one. The coconut flavors were coming out more than the actual ube.
The cones itself were a treat. A waffle charcoal cone with marshmallow fluff at the bottom was to die for. It was almost like eating an oreo but better in my opinion. Well done! Did I mention they make them fresh in-house daily?
As this was located in a lululemon store, I do not have much to say. The actual iHalo Krunch booth was located at the front of the store against open brick walls.
Simple to navigate and to pay/order.
Give this shop a try and you will be pleasantly surprised with the quality and taste of the cones and soft serves. I will definitely return to the permanent store front to try more flavors!
