Cocoa-bomb pop-up opening up in time for Valentine’s Day in Mississauga


Published February 8, 2021 at 7:50 pm


Mississauga might remain in lockdown for the foreseeable future (perhaps beyond Feb. 22), but if you loved the last cocoa-bomb pop-up in Streetsville, you might be happy to hear that the shop will be back just in time for Valentine’s Day. 

John Placko, the Australian-born chef who started the Modern Culinary Academy and Powder for Texture, recently announced that he will once again be collaborating with Murphy’s Ice Cream Parlour to sell some romantic and creative Cocoa Bombs and other chocolates.

The pop-up, which will feature cocoa-bombs, an edible chocolate canvas on an easel with edible paints, Lego pieces made from chocolate, edible chocolate lipsticks and more, will be open from Feb. 10 to 14. 

The shop, which will be located inside of Murphy’s, will be open from 2 pm to 7 pm. 

As for what kind of products to expect, Placko says shoppers can buy cocoa-bombs in a variety of flavours, including Very Berry, Classic Chocolate and Heavenly Hazelnut. To enjoy the cocoa-bomb, you just need to place it in a mug (you can even choose to customize a mug with a message) and slowly pour one cup of hot milk over the bomb. 

The shop will also sell tea bombs, gift boxes of various chocolates, a smashable chocolate heart, chocolate bars, chocolate popsicles and more.
