Margaret River Chocolate Company located at Harmans Mill Rd is a big chocolate shop with a cafe that overlooks a nice large lawn. Although they produce chocolates, what you’ll see through a small viewing window, is molten chocolate processed by machine and that’s about it. This is not one of those chocolate facility where you will be guided around. You would not be able to see any process of how a chocolate bar is being produced.
Entering the shop, there are sampling bowls of chocolates for you to try in the form of ‘buttons’. Three types of chocolate samples are available namely white, milk & dark chocolate. You can sample them as much as you like and that’s about the only kind of sample around. Spillage of the buttons on the floor were lying around and being stepped on and the staff don’t seems to be concerned about it. The spillage was still on the floor when we left.
The shop has easy access with parking bays. Wide range of products in various packaging are on sale. The huge shop floor is filled with display of all types of chocolate creations, even chocolate soap and cosmetics. The products are however priced on the high side. As foreigners, we tend to convert the price back into our local currency and their chocolates cost as much as a premium quality imported European chocolate back home. We didn’t buy any.
