Although the flavours they offer are constantly being revised to allow customers to try new combinations, the Cookie Monster is one to stay featuring a classic cookies and cream dyed blue for an exciting twist.

Churros are a delish Spanish pastry, and at Pancho’s they can be filled with dulce de leche, chocolate and strawberry sauce. They make for a sweet treat after a stroll in Kensington Market or Little Italy. And at just $3 for 5 of these delectable treats , how can you pass this sweet offer up?!
