One of the most popular destinations in Margaret River for both locals and tourists is the Margaret River Chocolate Company. As well as being able to buy chocolate products and other gourmet food items from sister-company Providore, you can watch chocolates being made and enjoy both sweet and savoury items at the on-site cafe. The hot chocolate is exceptional and made with top-quality chocolate (choose from dark, milk or white). Ice cream from local favourite Simmo’s is also available.
The variety of chocolate products available is quite breathtaking, as you can see in the photos. Quite predictably, I came away with a bar of orange-infused dark chocolate and some 73% Tanzanian. Renay bought some chocolate bath salts which should be an interesting experience. If you can’t make it to Margaret River then the Chocolate Company has recently opened a new “concept store” at 317 Murray Street in Perth City. Either store is well worth a visit.
