The traditional choc-top is one scoop of vanilla ice-cream covered in a hard milk chocolate shell, sitting atop an ice-cream cone. Variations include different ice-cream flavours, such as chocolate, strawberry, chocolate chili, and banana. The chocolate shell may be studded with confectionery and mixed with flavourings. Ice cream brand is irrelevant, some examples of branded choc-tops include, Connoisseur and Golden North.
Though today choc-tops are often mass-produced, many cinemas - including large chains - still make them by hand, and the quality or novelty of a cinema's choc-tops can be a draw for movie-goers.
