After the Margaret River Fudge Factory established itself as a successful business, the company expanded to include Fremantle Chocolate, which opened in South Fremantle in 2002. Ten years later, as production grew larger, Fremantle Chocolate moved to its current premises in Bibra Lake, a custom-built factory and shop front with a viewing window that allows the public to see how Fremantle Chocolate's multi-award winning chocolates are made.
Fremantle Chocolate produces over 300 handcrafted gourmet chocolate and lollies by some of Australia's most talented chocolatiers. With so many items to choose from, they have something for everyone. Choose from deluxe chocolate bars, chocolate-coated treats, truffles, pralines, traditional lollies, Easter and Christmas chocolates, and more.
I was invited to visit Fremantle Chocolate and taste some of their Easter products. I was greeted by the staff who were very kind and welcoming. I was taken into the back office and presented with a selection of some of their best Easter chocolates. The first thing that struck me about their Easter products was how nice the packaging was. The boxes were white with brightly coloured stars and eggs on them and pictures of Easter Bunnies. I really loved their hand-crafted Easter Bunny which retails for $20.70.
Fremantle Chocolate uses only the best chocolate moulds from Europe. When I took the Easter Bunny out of its box to have a look at it, I was floored with how much care and attention to detail was visible on it. It was wearing a cute little bonnet, had a happy little smile on its face, and you could see fine details in its fur. What impressed me the most about it was the little touches of white chocolate in its eyes, nose, and a bow on its back. I took a bite out of its ear and was instantly impressed. This was some of the finest milk chocolate I've ever tasted. It was smooth, not too sweet, and just really well made. Trust me it's worth the price.

This spotty dotty Easter egg will put a smile on your face
Another product that I tried was Six Spotty Dotty Eggs which retails for $20.70. Don't be put off by the price tag of this box of eggs. It's well worth it. The eggs in this box are the size of a regular chicken egg and coated in rainbow sprinkles. I was surprised with how thick the chocolate was when I bit into one of these eggs. It wasn't like the cheap Easter eggs that you can get in the shops that have a thin and easily breakable chocolate shell. I also liked how thick the coating of sprinkles was on each of these eggs as well. It gave it a nice crunch. If you're a fan of Easter eggs covered in sprinkles like I am, you should give these a try. To purchase a packet of Six Spotty Dotty Easter Eggs, please click here.
We got to see how Fremantle Chocolate decorates their Easter Eggs
After we finished our tasting session, we were very lucky to be treated to a tour of the factory floor. We got to meet some of the talented chefs and chocolatiers who work at Fremantle Chocolate. It was really interesting to be shown how Fremantle Chocolate makes their award-winning chocolates.
Fremantle Chocolate has so many different Easter products for you to enjoy
The staff were very inviting and eager to answer our questions and show us around. We got to see how they pour the chocolate into moulds and decorate eggs with icing and little chocolate bugs and bunnies. I was really impressed with the sheer number of goodies they were making.
Fremantle Chocolate has something to please every chocolate lover
There were trays of Easter eggs piled high, bowls of truffles, boxes of fudge, and rows of Easter Bunnies. It was really interesting watching how they decorated the eggs and I liked some of the unique designs of their Easter products like this Easter Bunny riding a scooter.
