Best Iced Chocolate and Iced Coffee

It’s Monday today everybody!!! Hope you’ve had a great start to the week cuz it’s bloody hot outside! I’m so glad I can retreat to the confines of an air-conditioned room and I hope you can too. My sympathies to those who work at the open-air road shows, teachers teaching in non-air-conditioned classrooms etc, I hope you have a cool drink with you. Tourists, do yourselves a favour and try not to come to Singapore during the hot months. May, June and July are always killers in terms of heat. If Singaporeans already feel like melting, are melting in this heat, what chance do you stand if you’re from a temperate country? Come back again in December, that would be my most sincere advice!

I suppose the companies selling air-cons must be doing a roaring trade. In this heat, even fans are no match! It’s a wonder how I even managed to survive primary school and secondary school. I don’t recall it to have been that sweltering.

If you can’t escape the heat, I guess the next best thing to do would be to arm yourselves with a nice ice cold drink. Here are some suggestions for iced chocolate or iced coffee. Helps to tide you through the Monday Blues too!

Max Brenner Chocolate Bar

You know what? On a recent trip to Vivocity, I made a startling revelation. I couldn’t find a single nice and unique cafe to sit down and have a cuppa! I came across Coffee Bean, Gloria Jeans, 2 Starbucks (!), Tom n Toms etc but these you can find in many locations around Singapore. I wanted to experience something different!

Max Brenner Chocolate Bar

Alas, I had no choice but to finally settle for Max Brenner Chocolate Bar. At least, they only have one other outlet which is at Esplanade. The thing I know about Max Brenner is that their expertise is in chocolate and chocolate drinks. I think they serve one of the best chocolate drinks in Singapore – the Pure Chocolate Truffle Granita Drink. It costs about $7.50 and is 1 tall glass of pure rich and sweet chocolatey goodness blended with ice. 1 glass of that fills me up so much I normally have to split it with another person. I still get 100% of the happiness though.

Well that’s what I would have definitely ordered at Max Brenner, had I been hankering for something chocolaty. BUT, it was 4pm and a coffee was in order. So we decided to order their iced cafe latte.

The iced cafe latte was served in their signature Alice Cup, with metal straw. I was wondering who Alice was the whole time there. The Partner lost no time in humming the song “Who the F*** is Alice” to irritate me. Well I googled and the Alice so referred to is Alice of Wonderland. No wonder the glass says Drink Me!

The iced latte was not bad but not strong enough. At least it had a smooth taste. And because the sugar syrup was not pre-added, we didn’t end up with a sickly sweet drink. Still, I would recommend ordering their Pure Chocolate Truffle Granita Drink if you’ve never tried Max Brenner before. That, in my opinion is their best drink in the house by far.
