Sydney Chocolate: celebrating Sydney in a delicious way.
Here in Sydney, we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Satirical comedy like Bondi Hipsters and Ja’mie have skewered the personalities of Sydney and stereotyped our suburbs and we can’t get enough of it. Locals love embracing the stereotype from the soccer mums in Mosman. Or the green juice guzzling hipsters. Or the health conscious socialites of Potts Point. And now, we can do it in smooth, chocolatey fashion with Sydney Chocolate bars.
They are a new range of chocolate bars, an unusual pairing of comedy and chocolate. Each chocolate bar celebrates each suburb’s unique personality.
Bondi has gooey salted caramel in it’s centre, flecked with pieces of puffed quinoa. Palm Beach is vanilla. Marrickville references their microbrewery culture, and Potts Point is sugar free. The most unusual combo would have to be Newtown, with beetroot marshmallow and coconut encased in dark couverture. ‘You can’t beetrootin’ in Newtown!”
And if you’re asking what could be better than comical candy bars, the chocolate is ethically and sustainably made through the Yayra Glover Company. They are an organisation trying to improve the life of organic farmers in Ghana. Tempered and packaged by hand, Sydney Chocolate is made with a whole lot of love by chocolatiers Tahra Camidge and Lucas Edmonds. Look out for the seasonal flavours coming out for Halloween, Christmas. Plus there’s an annual Pavlova flavour for Australia Day!
Sydney Chocolate is available at Taylor Square markets every Saturday. It’s stocked in Opus Paddington, the Katoomba Co-op and Hornsby’s Next Chapter Lifestyle and Living. It can also be ordered online at sydneychocolate.com.
