Bag a bargain at genuine factory outlets
Inside the Pink Lady Factory Outlet


Nearly everything seems to be advertised as a factory outlet or on sale, so it becomes difficult to find a genuine factory outlet with prices to match.

Pink Lady chocolate shop is housed within the factory where it's produced, so this is definitely a genuine factory outlet, with Pink Lady's full chocolate range available in 200g, 500g and 1kg lots. The factory also stocks Fyna, Ballentine and Betta lollies and liquorice at $2 a bag.

Pink Lady


When I visited the factory on Tuesday I was unsure about the variety that would be on offer, or if it was all seconds or close to the use by date. However, I was pleasantly surprised at the offerings.

My all time favourite is bullets (chocolate covered liquorice) I buy them at the local chocolate shop for $36 a kilo. At the factory outlet bullets are sold in 500 gram lots which are $7 or $14 a kilo, a huge price difference.

Chocolate bags


If you're a little overwhelmed with what chocolates to buy, there are free samples on offer to taste test . Also at the outlets are some old time favourites like 'Mates' and 'Fads'. I was really surprised to see Fads for sale as the political correctness would likely prevent them being sold. You can buy both in a big box for $11.50.



In the shop you will also find some seconds, at really cheap prices, or left over, but still in date stock like Easter eggs. I bought a 500 gram pack of small caramel filled Easter eggs for $1.50, Bilby's for $2.

I bought a few kilos of chocolate to share with friends and some bags of liquorice with the total price of $23 and all the use buy dates for early 2014.

The Pink Lady Factory is located at 13 Hume street Huntingdale, which is only one street behind North Rd. It's not an attractive area with many old factories on a narrow street, however, the good news is it's easy to find and car parking is available opposite the shop for customers and staff.

Cookie Concepts


If the Pink Lady factory doesn't fully satisfy you, a few doors down at number 1 Hume st on the same side is a biscuit factory called Cookie Concepts where they sell direct from the factory.

cookies $3 a bag


Cookie Concepts stock cafes, some IGA stores and other retailers, but if you go to the factory they aren't much cheaper unless you buy the seconds which are good value. The seconds bags vary depending on what they're making, we got mixed bags of 4 biscuits for $3. Individual 1st biscuits are sold at $2 each.

You pay $36/kilo for bullets normally?! I love bullets too but even at full retail price at Woolworths they are: Homebrand Chocolate Bullets 200g $1.55 ($0.78 / 100G) and Darrell Lea Milk Chocolate Bullets 200g $3.19 ($1.60 / 100G) at Dec 2015
