Choco Falls: Chocolate Fountains at Citystars
Bakeries & Patisseries
Anne de Groot
It was only a few
years ago that the world became a better place and life began to make more sense: the chocolate fountain was introduced to the open market; a wonderful
machine creating deliciously fluid chocolate.

fountains at weddings and birthday parties, but nowadays you can also reach
chocolate delirium in Citystars. Choco Falls is a small

has quite some chocolate dipping options, such as fruit, crêpes, waffles,

There are different kinds of fruit to choose from such as apple, banana, kiwi,
cantaloupe and mango, but we were a bit disappointed that there were no
strawberries. We dipped our fruit into white chocolate, which was absolutely
delicious. The white chocolate tasted wonderful and combined with the zesty fruit,

We were ecstatic
about trying the chocomallow crêpe, which we asked to be filled with milk
chocolate. The crêpe is freshly baked on the spot, then filled with
marshmallows and covered in chocolate sauce. While it sounds and looks great, the end

was a bit dry and needed more chocolate filling to make it tastier. However, Choco
Falls may have intentionally cut back on the filling so as to avoid giving you
a chocolate overdose.
staff at the Citystars branch is friendly, and you definitely get your value for
