I'm not sure about you, but I've starting to crawl the walls and I'm biting at the bit; I'm looking forward to the end of lockdown. I've started to crave and thought you might be craving too, so here is a bit of comforting food porn that lets you know, there's still a lot to be joyful about in life, and food is something everyone can engage in. So take a break from all that exercising, online events and classes and engage with something you can touch and feel and taste. Lucky are those who live within the 5km radius of the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery.
They have a Takeaway Menu available for pick up at their kiosk or cafe from 9am to 5pm. Brunch, lunch, kids meals, pizza or take-home meals, it's all there. Don't forget the Chocolaterie is classed as a food retail business and therefore open for business 9-5 every day. Travel to 35 Old Healesville Rd, Yarra Glen, if you're within the current allowed 5kms.
For the rest of us, there's still plenty of chocolate that will be delivered to our doors at the click of a keystroke. Quality doesn't come cheap but it brings a lot of feel-good moments and I can't think of a better time to reward ourselves occasionally, because we're worth it.
The latest choice you can make is The Ultimate Pick & Mix Chocolate Box. Just select 12 of your favourite choc-coated creations in any combinations you desire from 55 varieties at the online counter and they'll be hand-packed for you in a beautiful chocolate box for delivery to your door. If not for yourself, perhaps there's a special someone who needs a bit of emotional bolstering that'd love to receive this generous gift from you.
If you're also missing the Chocolaterie's best-ever-brownies, you can now make them at home with their DIY Baking Kits. Pick from a host of different triple choc flavours like roasted hazelnut or salted caramel macadamia, there's even a gluten-free one! You can click & collect, arrange local deliveries and they send Australia wide. You'll also find some farm animal chocolate making kits the kids would love; fondue kits, gourmet bar making kit, their famous lemonade scones at-home kit with grande latte mugs, and cookie making and decorating kits.
For something a little saucier, it's adults-only G&C time with the Chocolaterie! They've just released their latest offering. A special Gin and Chocolate Tasting Pack with an adults-only combo of handcrafted chocolates and savoury roasted nuts and a selection of locally distilled Four Pillars Gin. Mix a cocktail or two, treat yourself to chocolate and weekends in lockdown will start looking better. Available online to order for click & collect, local delivery or sent Aus wide. Cheers!!
Choose all your other Click & Collects here, some for local deliveries and some shipped Australia wide. Don't forget to take a peek at the Lockdown Treats as well that have many other adult selections of tasting boxes like the craft beer and wine with chocolate selections. You'll also find the Chocolaterie breakfast box, his and her hampers, high tea at home, kids hamper and 1kg mega block of caramelised white rocky road. Take me there now!
