Chocolate lovers of Brisbane, your dreams have finally come true! After 10 years of waiting,
wishing and requesting, the Bald Man is set to open his much-anticipated Chocolate Bar in
Brisbane. Opening its doors on 9 October 2010, the latest addition to the Max Brenner family will
surely delight devout chocolate followers with the intoxicating smell of melted chocolate wafting
through the warm Queensland air.
Set to open at Southbank, Brisbane's epicenter of fine food and shopping, Max Brenner's newest
Chocolate Bar will bring alive the inner child in everyone! Diners will be seduced with tempting
treats like the 100% Pure Chocolate Experience Iscream Max-Wich (RRP $12.50) while avid
shoppers will find choosing difficult in the Chocolate Shop with goodies like the Brown Cross
First Aid Gift Set (RRP $111) or Hazelnuts, deliciously caramelized and coated in rich praline (RRP
$18). No wonder Max Brenner is Australia's favourite chocolate experience!
"We have been flanked by overwhelming demand and requests from Brisbane residents to open a
Chocolate Bar here, so we're over the moon to finally make their wish come true!" said Max
Brenner himself. "Chocolate is meant to be a full sensory experience and Max Brenner Chocolate
Bar is a place to celebrate chocolate and become a part of our unique culture. We're so excited to
finally be able to share our love of chocolate with the people of Brisbane."
Queenslanders cannot seem to get enough of the Max Brenner experience with the Gold Coast
Chocolate Bars consistently packed to the brim with dedicated followers. The opening of the
Brisbane Chocolate Bar comes just before yet another Queensland opening in Broadbeach in
November this year.
Brisbane residents searching for an icy cold drink to keep themselves cool from the Queensland
summer sun should try one of Max Brenner's delicious choctails from his famous Alice Cup.
Inspired by 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland', the Alice Cup was created to enhance the fantasy
aspect of the chocolate drinking ceremony. Choose from a wide range of delicious chocolate
concoctions- Banana Milk Chocolate Frappe, Peanut Butter Iced Chockie or Strawberry White
Chocolate Float- each one guaranteed to bring any chocolate fantasy to life.
For those after a heartier treat, Max's Tutti-Frutti Waffles (RRP $13.00) are a definite winner.
Drizzled with pure melted chocolate and served with creamy ice cream, delicious strawberries and
SEbananas, there's no sweeter way to celebrate the arrival of the Chocolate King in Brisbane!
But that's not all... the Max Brenner Chocolate Shop (also available online at
shop.maxbrenner.com.au) is a chocolate lover's dream come true. Featuring Max's signature
hand-made pralines in more than 20 exotic flavours it's also the perfect place to pick up a range
of gorgeous gifts - either a treat for yourself or a present for friends and family.
Personally recommended by John Travolta, Chocolate: A Love Story (RRP $35) is Max's innovative
cookbook that allows you to be Max the chocolatier at home while his spa collection, BODY offers
the perfect guilt-free indulgence for your skin. Created from pure cocoa butter and rare
confectionery ingredients, this decadent Spa Collection helps nourish and enrich the skin whilst
