About Me

Ballarat, Victoria, Australia
In 2012 I moved back to my home town of Ballarat in Victoria, Australia. Join me as I re-discover Ballarat, one of Victoria's largest inland cities, famous for the Goldfields. You may be a resident, tourist or new comer to Ballarat. I hope to provide you with useful information about Ballarat as I re-discover my home town. I will also provide information on places which are a short drive from Ballarat. So residents and visitors come and discover Ballarat with me.

Ballarat Chocolate Shoppe

Love is in the air this Valentines Day at the Ballarat Chocolate Shoppe.  According to owner Helen, women hope to get chocolate for Valentines Day (hint, hint), but the guys usually buy them flowers.  Over 90% of the shops customers are women.  Okay I confess, we have a sweet tooth!

For Valentines Day, the Ballarat Chocolate Shoppe has Chocolate Bouquets ranging from $30 to $45.  Choose a love heart chocolate to place on your partners pillow as a sign of love or buy a traditional box of chocolates.

The products on range at the Ballarat Chocolate Shoppe include:
- Handmade Chocolates
- Bulk Chocolates - over 150 varieties
- Traditional Boxed Chocolates
- Box of Chocolates in a Noodle Box (great gift idea)
- Pick & Mix Chocolate
- Lollies
- Takeaway coffee and Hot Chocolate (yes, made of real good quality chocolate)

On entering this world of chocolate, I discovered these two wonderful services below that are on offer:

Cake Decorating - Are you an avid cake decorator?  Don't buy packets full of lollies for only one or two lolly pieces to decorate your cake.  Come into the Ballarat Chocolate Shoppe and choose from a huge range of lollies, including your old favourites.  Yes you can buy single pieces only!

Wedding Lolly Bars - The Ballarat Chocolate Shoppe lends jars to their wedding customers to set up a lolly bar/buffet.  What a great idea that both you and your wedding guests will enjoy! Choose all of the lollies that you wish.  All brides and grooms currently receive 20% off their lollies for their wedding day.

Mention this blog article to receive a FREE chocolate to taste.
Offer valid only at the Ballarat Chocolate Shoppe until the 31 March 2013.
