720 Sweets has finally brought a long overdue hype to Vancouver. Recently, the city has been going through a soft serve craze and it was about time someone brought liquid nitrogen to its presentation. Other cities have been serving soft serve with a fun liquid nitrogen presentation for a while now so thanks to 720 for bringing this trend.
Located in Kitsilano, I went to try 720 Sweets after having dinner at Green Leaf Sushi. Within a five minute walk, you can have a dessert after having a delicious aburi dinner. The shop wasn’t hard to miss since it got pretty packed after dinner time but we were lucky to beat the line up that arrived a few minutes after us.
All of the liquid nitrogen is placed inside a separate compartment than the soft serve cup. The effect stops after a few minutes after it’s served so you better get your camera ready.
The Classic: Crushed Graham Crackers, Sweetened Condensed Milk and Baked Butter Finger Cookie
I like to stick with the simple and original flavours when I have soft serve. It puzzled me that the ice cream was in a pastel blue colour but I guess it makes the photo prettier.
Compared to Soft Peaks, I thought 720’s soft serve was sweeter and slightly creamier. Portions were bigger and it was pretty good, I would return for more.
Their Classic was quite light and it didn’t feel too intense after a heavy dinner. Their other flavours looked heavier than this one.
S’More Please: Chocolate Corn Flakes, Dark Chocolate Drizzle, Crunchy Almond Stick and Toasted Marshmallow with Rainbow Sprinkles
On the other hand, their S’more Please was definitely on the heavier side. I actually felt full after eating this.
Their chocolate soft serve wasn’t too creamy and the chocolate was slightly watered down. However, their toasted marshmallow was quite a treat and this was just really fun to eat.
