With Easter just around the corner, it's time to start thinking chocolate thoughts. Margaret River Chocolate Company seems to have the same idea, having just opened up a new store right in the centre of Perth. Did I mention there are free chocolate tastings?

Located on Murray Street, just a stone's throw away from the underground train station (next to Country Road), the store is simply intoxicating. As you walk up the classic stone steps, you will find yourself surrounded by treats and temptations. As well as all their usual chocolate selections, there are beautifully crafted easter hampers, in a number of sizes and styles.

Easter goodies


Being the chocolate junkie that I am, the free samples lured me right into the centre of the store. Three large bowls of the famous chocolate chips - dark, milk and white - were just being replenished, and I wasn't the only one grabbing a spoonful.

Wandering through the rest of the store, I noticed that there was more than just chocolate being sold and sampled. A large range of chutneys and preserves were also on display in the back half of the store, and these too could be sampled before buying.

The staff in the store were welcoming but not pushy at all, and were relaxed with letting people try samples, something that I appreciated. The hardest thing about the whole experience was deciding what to take home, as there were so many delicious choices.

For somewhere stylish and local to get your Easter gifts this year, I definitely recommend a visit to the Margaret River Chocolate Company's Perth City store. Even if Easter isn't your thing, go for the free chocolate samples, as they are sure to brighten anyone's day.
