Im so sick of places that dress chocolate down to be something healthy, something acceptable, something... Not indulgent. But why would I eat chocolate if it's not indulgent? Sure, I agree that two squares of proper 80% plus dark chocolate may be good for you, but who in their right mind is actually able to stop themselves from eating anything less than two blocks of dark chocolate!
The recently opened "Green Cup" proudly located right next to Country Road is a culprit of the above. And they have shocking service. The enticing white washed timber, top 20s tunes and prerequisite Edison lightbulbs of every wanna be cool cafe in Melbourne was totally let down by the caked face, short short wearing waitresses. These waitresses gave me the eyes that say please don't ask me any questions I'm nervous enough as it is eyes, so I couldn't question the flavoursome nature of the avocado containing drinks, and nor could I question the healthiness of the chocolate option.
When confronted with their offerings of concoctions that have various forms of avocado and kale in them, I obviously lent towards the chocolate peanut butter option, because you can't go wrong with chocolate, and maybe it was a good choice for a sweet tooth trying to be healthy...
Yet for $9 I got a totally underwhelming water based chocolate drink, not a thick peanut buttery with a hint of chocolate drink like I was expecting. I guess all that protein powder and whatever other rubbish the girls wouldn't explain to me is what bumped up the price, and the waiting time?
The one thing I did enjoy was the yummy coconut chip samples I munched on whilst waiting for a server to get off her phone and pay attention to me, and not be nervous to ask whether or not pay pass is okay to use with my card. If someone doesn't want to use paypass, they'll let you know as they give you their card.
Next time I want to pretend to be healthy, I'll just go to Boost Juice. There's a reason why they're so successful, and I think it's because they don't pretend to be anything they're not.
3/10... Only because I feel mean giving a 0...
Have you had a better experience than I? Or are you a total health nut who can explain to me why chocolate was healthy in this instance? I'd love to know!
