Chocolate Grove Factory Outlet

by Lorraine A (follow)


Chocolate Groves Tasty Chocolates


Word is slowly getting out on Carrum Downs 'best kept secret' after managing director Will Muddyman recently opened his newly renovated factory outlet store and history centre to the public.

I must admit, even though I'm regularly in the area and must have driven past the sign located on Dandenong - Frankston Rd numerous times (as the factory has been there since 2002), I had never seen it nor heard of it. Other local factory owners and residents I spoke to had also never heard of it. So it made me curious and naturally I had to find out more.



I wasn't entirely sure what to expect but there certainly wasn't any mistaking the Chocolate Grove factory from the street with its playful Red and White candy stripes.



Step inside and you'll find racks of chocolates with just about every flavour combination you can think of. There are the usual suspects such as chocolate bullets, rocky road, chocolate coated nuts and so on, but then there's the more obscure such as chia seeds in dark chocolate, lemon myrtle and have you ever wondered what chocolate covered salt and vinegar chips tasted like? Well, if you're like me than chances are you wouldn't have even dreamed of such an unusual combination, but that's exactly what Will does best. He is passionate about experimenting with unusual combinations to keep customers taste buds tantalized.



Prices here are reasonable with most items costing $5- $6 for 200gram bags/blocks. I bought about 10 bags in total to share and the standouts for me were the dairy free dark chocolates. The quality of the chocolate is very good and I'll certainly be heading back.



The Chocolate Grove is located at 50 Aster Ave, Carrum Downs and is open Mon-Fri 8am-5pm, Sat 12 noon-4pm. For more info visit their website here here.
