What better way to take a chill pill than to indulge in some chocolate ice cream – sinful, icy and oh-so-satisfying! Check out this list of the best chocolate ice creams in Singapore!

CHOCOLATE ORIGIN – DARK GELATO

COLD STONE CREAMERY – CHOCOLATE DEVOTION
When we were younger, we’d watch through the glass of Cold Stone Creamery as they mixed multi-coloured fillings into their various ice creams. From gummy bears to chocolate cookies and Maltesers, anything goes! We, however, love Cold Stone Creamery’s signature creations.
In particular, their Chocolate Devotion features chocolate brownies, chocolate chips and fudge in a decadent chocolate ice cream. It really can’t get more chocolatey than that!
Cold Stone Creamery has several stores. Check out the full list here.
GODIVA – CHOCOLATE SOFT SERVE
When chocolate giant Godiva announced the launch of their soft serves many years ago, they drew in long lines at every outlet. Once you taste it, it is really no wonder why because it’s just that good! A super-rich and smooth soft-serve sits on a chocolate-crusted cone and is topped with chocolate sauce and a Godiva chocolate square. It’s a real chocolate-lover’s treat!
