Courtney Anderson, 3, was one of the many who filled their bellies with all the chocolate icecream they could eat yesterday when Giapo's head chef, Gianpaolo Grazioli, put on an array of around 30 chocolate icecream flavours for the Auckland gelato shop's self-proclaimed Chocolate Day.

The line spilled out the door onto Queen St to get the unlimited cups of different-flavoured chocolate icecream ranging from Chocolate Hazelnut to Chocolate Porcini Mushrooms and Himalayan Salted Chocolate. Courtney, from Drury, tried the Rocky Road, White Chocolate and Macadamia and Black Forest. "She really loved all of it," said her mother, Melissa Auret.

For those with an adventurous palate, there was Chocolate Blue Cheese, Chocolate Smoked Salmon and Wasabi Chocolate.
