The Hello Hobart team love chocolate and will make up any excuse to get some. Monday? Let’s get chocolate!
We popped by Chocolate & More in Bank Arcade and discovered their dedicated selection of European chocolates right here in Hobart.
Chocolate & More is owned by Suzette and has been open in the charming arcade since 2006. Why does Suzette love chocolate so much? ‘I think it makes you happy, it brings out the endorphins. Chocolate is also great for any and every occasion, whether you are celebrating life, love or loss’, said Suzette.
40 years ago, Suzette opened her first chocolate shop in Hobart (Kandyland) after a trip to Europe where she experienced a beautiful array of great chocolate shops, particularly in Austria. She realised that Hobart didn’t really have a nice chocolate shop, so she decided to change that!
Hidden within this great store you will find a mix between local and international delicacies. Suzette’s favourite chocolates are Simon Coll (offered in both 99% and 70% cocoa with cacao nibs) and Blanxart Chocolates (a Spanish chocolate that is earthy with no preservatives or additives and great for people who are coeliac). We can vouch for the Simon Coll 70% with cocoa nibs, it was absolutely delicious and if you love dark chocolate this is a winner.
Next time you are in need of a chocolate fix or gift, make sure to head to Chocolate & More. Located in the Bank Arcade, Hobart.
