Cherry Fruit Juice & Icy Bar

The weather is warming up, which means I'm allowed to eat ice cold desserts again! One of my all time favourite cold treats is found at Cherry Fruit Juice & Icy Bar. There are two locations in Greater Vancouver; one is at the Crystal Mall food court in Burnaby and the other is at the Parker Place food court in Richmond. I have been to both and the quality and quantity is exactly the same.

3 Mix Icy ($4.25) and 8 Treasures Icy
On the vast menu, there are mainly pre-matched drink combinations or create-your-own. I usually opt for the later, which are called '3 mix' or '4 mix' drinks. The top two tall cups are both 3 mix drinks. The left includes canned lychee, almond pudding, and blueberries. The right is my usual default of grass jelly, red bean, and one other random item that seems to catch my attention. All icy drinks have shaved ice (just frozen water) and coconut milk. 



3 Mix Icy with Grass Jelly, Red Bean, and Basil Seed ($4.25)
I don't recommend choosing basil seed as it gets completely lost in the drink and can't be tasted whatsoever. A few of the many toppings available are pearls, jelly, fresh fruits, canned fruits, beans, taro, barley, and tapioca. A scoop of ice cream can be added for an extra cost.

Other popular items include a bowl of mango icy with ice cream (seasonal) and red bean icy with ice cream (红豆冰). Hot dessert soups and bubble tea is also available. I have tried the hot dessert soups (糖水) and I think they are pretty good. The glutinous black sticky rice with coconut milk is one of my favourites. The serving is quite large too! 

There are endless combinations to be made and I create one according to my preference at the time. I believe this is a much better value than a bubble tea, it's about the same price anyways. Throughout the summer season, I make multiple visits to Cherry Fruit Juice & Icy Bar. Summer has just begun, which means many more icy drinks coming up for me!
