Eating ice cream makes you happy! We certainly do not claim to be qualified scientists, but there are a few rules surrounding food that we believe to be universal truths.
One such rule is that we are pretty certain that ice cream is the answer to almost all of life’s varied and unpredictable problems. Had a bad day at work? Head to the freezer aisle in the supermarket. Awkard/bad date night? Get that half-eaten tub of Connoisseur Cookies & Cream Ice Cream out of your freezer.
Australia’s most-loved dessert brand Connoisseur Ice Cream has partnered with artisan chocolatier Koko Black to turn their iconic luxury chocolate into a decadent new ice cream range.

Designed for the Australian palette, the new Connoisseur and Koko Black collaboration come in two indulgent flavours for the ultimate luxurious taste experience. The range features Australia’s number one best-selling vanilla ice cream, dipped in Koko Black’s signature 54% cocoa chocolate. It’s the first time dessert lovers will be able to taste Koko Black’s signature chocolate in ice cream. The two flavours include:
Classic Vanilla with Koko Black Chocolate Stick
Connoisseur’s classic smooth vanilla ice cream coated in Koko Black’s 54% cocoa chocolate.
Honeycomb with Koko Black Chocolate Stick
Honeycomb ice cream coated in Koko Black’s signature Tasmanian Leatherwood Honeycomb pieces in 54% cocoa chocolate.
Connoisseur’s team of culinary creators worked closely with Koko Black and their Head Chocolatier, Remco Brigou to design the indulgent new ice cream collection, leaning on his many years as a chocolatier to find the perfect balance of flavours.
Brigou says, “The key to marrying the two decadent brands together was for it to feel like a true collaboration of Australia’s finest ingredients. The chocolate coating is crafted from a premium selection of our Koko Black chocolate and has been expertly paired with Connoisseur’s much loved vanilla ice cream for a truly indulgent experience.”
Peter’s Ice Cream Head of Marketing, Andrea Hamori says “The flavour pairings were matched to appeal to the Australian palate showcasing quality local ingredients to thrill the senses.”
The Connoisseur with Koko Black Collection is available from leading convenience and grocery stores nationally in Australia. AUD $8.40 for a multipack of 4 sticks and $4.40 for a single loose pack stick. Connoisseur is Australia’s top selling vanilla ice cream and is also available in a range of exciting flavours found here.
