We’ll take two scoops of the Hell Yes, please. The Chocolaterie’s annual Ice Cream Festival is launching next week (on Valentine’s Day) and it’s looking freaking delicious.
There are some things in life that are worth love handles, and this is one of them.
They’re going to release 12 new flavours each day of the festival, and some of them are definitely NSFM (not safe for minors). We’re talking the Dark Horse (a malty combo of dark chocolate and Coopers stout) and the Gin & Tonic (literally G&T ice cream, served with a twist of orange).
There’s also plenty of ice cream that won’t blow you over 0.05. The Bush Tucker Cheesecake caught our eye (finger lime cheesecake with a strawberry gum ripple...wtf). And definitely get the kids sugar’d to hell on the Magical Unicorn (blue banana and pink bubblegum ice cream swirled with freckles and topped with unicorn dust, made from 30% hand-ground unicorns).
Need a kicker? This year the Chocolaterie is releasing a range of handmade cones to compliment the ice cream selection. You can get milk, white or dark choc-dipped cones, rolled in stuff that’ll make your dentist cry. Think Oreo crumbs, freeze-dried strawberry dust or crushed honeycomb.
I scream, you scream etc.
