Cold chocolate drink in YYC?

Jasz Jun 28, 2012 09:00 PM

Has anyone come across any place making cold/iced (not frozen) chocolate to drink? I loved these in Europe and have yet to run across one here.

    Never been, so I don't know if it's good or if they offer it... but maybe the Chocolate Bar on 17th Ave and 14th St SW??

      I had thought they would but no luck when we went last year. I'm pretty sure the old location at Westhills had some chocolate drink concoctions.

      Second Cup has "Frozen Hot Chocolate".

      Waves has "Iced Chocolate" that is not blended.

        Yeah I've tried Second Cup's; not even close.

        I will give Waves' version a go—thanks!

          The Waves one was perfect! Like a chocolate bar in a cup.
          I'll be trying the dark chocolate next time.

          More details please! And where in Europe? I used to live in both Italy and Spain, and have traveled pretty extensively all over the continent, and can't really get a specific sense of what you're looking for.

            Basically it was like a cold hot chocolate—thicker than chocolate milk but not made with ice cream like a shake would be. I think at least one was served over ice. It was pretty common in Greece and I also had them in England—Cadbury even had a mix for them though it was only so-so. Dunkin' Donuts has/had them in the States too (pic 3).

            This has made me really crave them now!
