Originating from South Korea and dominating the rest of Asia (and even the States) with its deliciously unique flavours and toppings combined with a fetchingly cute marketing prose of all-natural Australian milk and honeycomb sourced from Berringa, Milkcow is the place to go if you’re after something that’s sweet but still light on the body, mind, and soul.
Reflecting the soft serve’s fun and vibrant flavours is the fun interior that’s decorated with white walls, seats and tables, bright lights and a giant red neon sign that reads ‘FULL OF THE GOOD STUFF’, which is true, because Milkcow truly delivers with all the good stuff.
The outside of the store, which is supposedly a temporary pop-up can’t be missed, the bright lights stand out during the evening hours against its neighbouring competition with an outline of a soft serve in a cup with little honeycomb crumbles. It’s both childish and enticing, luring individuals of all ages to stand outside for a few minutes looking at the flavour displays before stepping instead to an ambient surrounding to place an order.
With Korean pop music playing in the background, ordering becomes an obstacle with the vast variety of flavours and toppings to choose from – and Milkcow has delivered with adapting to the Australian/Melbourne market, with something for everyone. From the original milk way to an avalanche (that’s coffee based!), you’ll become a child-at-heart with the impending topping choices that include honeycomb pieces, jellybeans, Fleur del Sel artisan sea salt (yes you read right), French macarons, caramel popcorn, and the list goes on. What’s even better is that the prices are reasonable enough that you’d want to come back for seconds, and thirds, fourths, and still not be sick from the creamy yet so delightfully healthy soft serve.
So if you’re after something on the sweet side, but still want to stay on the good side, Milkcow is definitely a dessertery you should visit. You won’t forget it.
