Get excited! This Saturday, July 7 is World Chocolate Day, and this international awareness day is no time to be bittersweet. Instead, give your endorphins a boost by celebrating chocolate in all its forms.
So, quit being a Flake and cancel your weekend Picnic. You’ve earned a little Time Out… Here’s how to get a taste of the action at Wollongong Central…
1. LIQUID GOLD
Chocolate Tapas at San Churro (Globe Lane, Level G)
The ultimate chocolate tasting experience with chocolate dipped strawberries, mini churros, chocolate brownie, two dip cups and other chocolate delights.
2. ARE YOU NUTS?
The #NUTELLALOVER Bubble Waffle at Espresso Warriors (Gateway, Level LG)
A vanilla bubble waffle with salted caramel sauce, chopped-up Twix, biscuit crumble and Caramello Koala and vanilla gelato. We’ll order a second.
3. BROWNIE-EYED GIRL
Gluten Free Dark Chocolate Brownie at Bannos Brownies (Keira, Level LG)
A dietary condition won’t spell disaster if you’re a chocolate lover. Bannos Brownies are a Wollongong Central institution. Their gluten-free variety doesn’t skimp on flavour and is just as moreish as their best-sellers.
4. GALAXY OF GOODNESS
Milky Way Cocktail at His Boy Elroy (Keira, Level G)
A dessert-like cocktail that reminds us of a Flake thickshake? Um, yes please! This delicious chocolate cream vodka concoction is ultra-dreamy, and a must-try at His Boy Elroy.
5. HOT MESS
Chocolate Mess Party to Share at Max Brenner (Keira, Level G)
Who needs manners when this decadent chocolate sponge drenched in chocolate syrup topped with ice cream, whipped cream and sprinkles is served straight from the tin.
