A rare treat
Hobart is a town in which to treat yourself. Treat yourself to a ferry ride out to MONA, treat yourself to a stroll through Salamanca Markets, treat yourself to a historical tour... the list goes on. Well, there's one more to add to the list: Norman and Dann.

Labelled as a fine food store, Norman and Dann is home to all sorts of luxury comestibles: tea, olive oil, pasta, biscuits, wine, coffee. It's also got all sorts of handy devices to use in the kitchen. The area where the shop really shines, though, is in its chocolate selection.

Champagne truffles. Chilli chocolates. Pistachio cream. If the mention of these confections doesn't get your mouth watering, you obviously haven't tried them. There is an impressive range of chocolates on display 30 or 40, displayed across two cabinets. One of my favourites was a simple candied orange dipped in dark chocolate, but there are much fancier combinations available. Norman and Dann aren't shy about having other chocolatiers, either, with tasty little chocolate offerings dotted throughout the store from a range of boutique chocolate makers.

The range isn't out of the budget-conscious price range, either. I'm a fan of Haigh's chocolates but can't afford to go beyond their chocolate frogs except as a very rare treat. At Norman and Dann's, however, I had trouble restricting myself to just the two or three (or four, or five) chocolates, and I was pleasantly surprised when the total cost was under $10.

We went back for more.
