Best Ice Chocolate in Australia: Kokoblack

Ice chocolate is among my favourite drinks of all time. In fact, it is my favourite drink any time any where.

I can easily name you some of cafes/restaurants that serve my favourite ice chocolate drinks: Starbucks, J Co Donuts, Delicious, Dome, Sha la la Coffee (at the seremban rest-stop next to the highway), ice milo in mamak stalls, Kim Gary's ice milo, and the list goes on.

But there is one particular cafe that serves the best, tops the list of my selection now. And I found it in Melbourne Australia.

Which is why... Kokoblack is my most beloved find in Australia thus far.

Yet another chocolate cafe in Australia (dang those OZs do love their chocolates), Kokoblack serves some wicked chocolate drinks and desserts. Including their retail chocolates on shelves.

It's a brand of its own. I know it sounds like Cocolat in Adelaide.

Personally, I thought Kokoblack was more commercialised, more professional, in a very good way, as compared to the more personalised Cocolat.

Chocolate drinks in Melbourne ranged from AUD5 - AUD7. Which was very reasonable considering we spend equally that amount of money for a cuppa of ice blended in Starbucks anyway.

Focus on the second list.


Yes, hot cocoa was nice in the shop,

and a tempting choice of selection in the dead of winter, but what I really want you to try is the Ice chocolate.

Which was like the most amazing thing you will ever taste, chocolate lover or not.

Rich, thick, big, cold, smooth. Say OMG with me.

It helps that it was gargantuan and by finishing the whole glass equals to eating a serving of fish and chips in Australia.

God no wonder I gained weight down under. wtf.


However, we did try several other desserts too, which were very, extremely delightful.

Ice cream, yes very delightful. Can't remember what flavour.


Especially the chocolate mousse that completely blew my mind away.

Rating: 3.5/5 (could have been four but they didn't let me take photo of the shop inside, which was a turn off :( )
