I have always been a huge fan of Frugii’s ice cream, I remember many years ago when I got try to their passionfruit pavlova ice cream for the first time, it was most certainly love at first bite. Can you imagine how excited I was when John the maker of Frugii ice cream announced he will be opening up a dessert bar.
In November, my family and I finally got a chance to visit Frugii Dessert Laboratory, I was so excited. Upon arrival at the Frugii Dessert Laboratory I decided to stop and just let the sweet aura of the place sink into my sweet senses, the dessert bar looked lovely.
When we stepped inside, my eyes were immediately drawn like magnets to the desserts in the display cabinet, the 70% cocoa dark chocolate choux seemed to be the one dessert that won me over, it looked extraordinary, so I ordered that and then a chocolate milkshake for my husband.
When the 70% cocoa dark chocolate choux was ready for consumption, I took a moment and smelt the choux and all I could smell was the intoxicating smell of chocolate.
The 70% cocoa dark chocolate choux tasted so amazing, that I was speechless at the time that when I took the first bite. My favourite part of the dessert was the dark chocolate creme patisserie filling, it tasted so creamy and delicious.
Next up was the dark chocolate milkshake. The dark chocolate milkshake was made with fresh milk and dark chocolate Frugii ice cream and had a creamy texture that made it so easy to drink. The milkshake wasn’t too sweet either, it was just a shame that we had to share it. I especially loved that the milkshake was served in a beaker.
Finally, a trip to Frugii Dessert Laboratory would not be complete without eating some of Frugii’s famous ice cream, I decided to try the vanilla bean ice cream. Unfortunately I couldn’t stomach the ice cream because I was too full, but from the few licks that I did take, I can tell you that this ice cream is definitely the real vanilla deal.
Overall I am really impressed with Frugii Dessert Laboratory, I love the concept and I love the desserts. I’m so happy for John and Edna, they have created a heavenly place for dessert connoisseurs like me. My only wish is that they open one up in Sydney.
Frugii Dessert Laboratory is located at:
30 Lonsdale Street, Braddon ACT.
