REXBURG — Chocolate Plunge has only been open two months but it’s already making a big splash.

The treat shop, located at 155 West Main Street in Rexburg, offers a variety of items drenched in chocolate and covered in a variety of toppings.

“We brought in a chocolate fountain from Italy. It constantly flows chocolate – over and over – never stops,” owner Ty Walker explains. “We have a fresh cup full of strawberries that we drizzle that chocolate over and you put your favorite topping on – it’s the best chocolate you’re ever tasted.”

Walker opened the store in January with Kevin Heebner and his aunt Donna Waite. Customers select an ice cream bar, ice cream sandwich or frozen cheesecake that is then dipped in melted chocolate and coated with toasted coconut, sprinkles, nuts, pretzels, M&M’s or other toppings. Frozen bananas drenched in chocolate are also an option along with cups full of fresh strawberries.

I tried the strawberries “play date” style, which included chocolate, toffee, biscoff and caramel drizzle. They tasted amazing!

The “campfire” cheesecake was also delicious. The piece was dunked in chocolate and covered with marshmallows, chocolate chips, graham crackers and marshmallow topping toasted right in front of me.

I couldn’t leave without trying a frozen banana, one of Chocolate Plunge’s most popular items. It was made the “Flintstone” way with Fruity Pebbles coating the chocolate and sweetened condensed milk drizzle. It was a unique fruity explosion that my kids loved!

Soft serve ice cream, sundaes and other options are also on the menu and Chocolate Plunge plans to introduce new items over the coming months.
