San Antonio's Chocollazo, known for stunning handmade chocolates and sweet treats, has unveiled plans for a new handmade ice cream concept: Black + White Modern Creamery.

“Life isn’t about how many times you get knocked down, it’s about how many times you get up,” read Chocollazo's Tuesday Facebook post. “We had plans to open a new ice cream shop this summer, but with all the uncertainty we decided to wait … WELL WE ARE TIRED OF WAITING!!!”



Chocollazo’s post didn't disclose an opening date or location. However, owner and chocolatier Mary Collazo did share that the motivation behind the new spot lies in the artisanal approach of its two Downtown-area shops.

“As a true born and bred San Antonio-based ice cream shop, we will be offering “puro San Antonio” flavors, mingled with some international twists and turns,” Collazo told the Current. “Inspiration also comes from our most popular truffle flavors at Chocollazo - like dark chocolate rose and balsamic fig."



Chocollazo boasts two San Antonio locations, helmed by Collazo and her husband Frank. The Hemisfair location is currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the 4013 Broadway location is open Tuesdays through Saturdays.

Chocollazo will continue to post details on the opening of Black + White Modern Creamery on social media.
