Australia’s beloved Koko Black has teamed up with Tokyo-based dessert shop Tokyo Lamington for what will surely be one of the most delicious collaborations of the year. That’s three decadent and unique twists on the timeless lamington – limited-edition treats that will be available for one day only at Koko Black stores on Tuesday 7th July, World Chocolate Day.
Tokyo Lamington, a new creation co-founded by Eddie Stewart, one of the pastry chefs behind Black Star Pastry’s now iconic Strawberry and Watermelon Cake, is typically only available in Tokyo and Singapore. So this Koko Black partnership will be the only chance Aussies have to experience the experimental dessert shop.
The exclusive Koko Black x Tokyo Lamington creations will be available as a three pack priced at $21 from eight stores in Melbourne and two in Sydney (listed below). Again, that’s for one day only on Tuesday 7th July.
As for the creations, expect the following:
● Caramelised Coconut Lamington
Celebrating a Koko Black classic, the Caramelised Coconut, this decadent lamington features almond and caramelised coconut cremeux coated in delicious white chocolate with a caramelised coconut finish.
● Davidson Plum and Sao Thome Lamington
This unique lamington delivers an exquisite sweet and sour flavour, combining Australia’s native, sour Davidson Plum, with Koko Black’s rich, fruity dark Sao Thome chocolate. The Sao Thome ganache comes coated in white chocolate, mixed with Davidson Plum coated in coconut with Davidson Plum.
● Triple Choc Lamington
The ultimate chocolate indulgence this World Chocolate Day, the Triple Choc Lamington is 80% dark chocolate ganache coated in silky dark chocolate, finished off with crisp dark chocolate shavings.
Koko Black will be ensuring safe distancing practices at all stores, with customers and staff safety the utmost priority during this time, and encourage those wanting to purchase lamingtons to be mindful of this.
The three-packs will only be available for the following stores:
- Como Centre (South Yarra)
- Highpoint Shopping Centre (Maribyrnong)
- Town Hall
- Royal Arcade
- The Glen Shopping Centre (Glen Waverely)
- The Strand Arcade
