Chilli Obsession - Quality Chilli Products

Published July 18th 2012
While Olinda Main Street presents a welcoming facade, it's not until you venture behind the restaurants and shops that you find some of the hidden treasures this location has to offer.

One store in particular gave me a real surprise. Named Chilli Obsession, this store offers gourmet chilli, mustards, as well as souvenirs and a growing collection of antiques. The real attraction in my opinion is the sample selection. All of the spreads are playfully named, and range from very mild to extremely hot (I'm not kidding – as a fan of Indian spices I still felt the fire from some of the chilli flavours!).

The foods are made locally, and are reasonably priced. If you can survive the heat, you know you're ready to buy.

The antique area is quite different, and presents a collection of paintings, nic-nacs and pieces of furniture that are available for inspection.

For those brave enough to check this place out, you'll find it located conveniently close to the main carpark in Olinda, just at the turn off from Mt. Dandenong Tourist Road.

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit, and highly recommend this gourmet item.
