360OUT&ABOUT:INTRODUCING SWEET KIWI’S FROZEN YOGURTS (20% discount for first 50people)

share on:

Yogurt is not just a delicious snack with fruits at the bottom, it has great health benefits. It is an excellent source of protein, calcium, riboflavin and vitamin B12. It is suitable for lactose intolerant people, helps in weight control, has immunological effects and loads of other benefits, but most importantly; it contains probiotics (live bacteria) which helps give a balance between the non-harmful and harmful bacteria in the body, thereby preventing a lot of infections. (That’s the science bit).

Yogurt is known and consumed in almost all parts of the world. Yogurt comes in various forms: frozen; thick and creamy; or as a drink(the most common type found in Nigeria). Those of you who have had the opportunity to travel overseas and have had a taste of the frozen type and loved it to bits may have been wondering if and when it will ever come to Nigeria. Well, we are very glad to present to you our very first frozen yogurt shop here in Nigeria known as SWEET KIWI Frozen Yogurt.

360nobs.com had a chat with the MD and Owner of SWEET KIWI; Ehime Eigbe and here’s what we gathered. We also got 50 readers a discount too but you have to read on to find out the details.

  4. Very proud of the efforts of young entrepreneur’s who take the bold step to break out of paid employement to start their own venture.

    Desserts look really really good, so I’d def be stopping by your shop to get some

  5. I was lucky enough to be one of the people to taste SWEET KIWI when the company did its free tasting in Lekki.I have to admit that SWEET KIWI’s froyo is one of the best I have ever tasted. Even after tasting several froyos in other parts of the world, SWEET KIWI’s is definitely one to reckon with. There is sooooo much passion in it that you can definitely taste the love. If you have not tried it, please do and if I were you I would take a few people along as well so you wouldn’t have to keep explaining to your loved ones how good this froyo is (let them experience it as well). My name is Ajibola M of CARINO MODA and I am one of the greatest fans of SWEET KIWI.

  6. I agree with Lily! There’s no way you won’t get addicted to froyo from Sweetkiwi. Thank you soo much for giving us a healthier option to our addiction. Please can you also start delivery service? We need to be able to indulge everywhere without having to leave our space *widegrin.

  7. Sweet Kiwi’s frozen yogurt is the best I’ve ever had. I have heard a lot of mouth watering reviews about it prior to visiting the shop, and I am thrilled to say that Sweet Kiwi’s yogurt is the best in town. I will surely be back to indulge in some more sweet delights.
