Choc-full of history

Chocolate Grove has opened a new chocolate shop in Carrum Downs that includes a history centre tracing Australian confectionery through the years.

“We are really proud of our new venture,” says owner and chocolate innovator Will Muddyman.  “We can now showcase our entire range of products in a pristine, perfect setting. While choosing their delicious treats, our customers can wander through our special section on the history of Australian confectionery and chocolate companies as illustrated through retro packaging and advertising memorabilia.”

To mark last month’s opening, Will and his team created a gourmet chocolate pizza topped with pepitas and dried inca berries, goji berries, blueberries and cranberries.  “We love creating new and innovative products. Our aim is to create unique, exotic and exciting combinations for a real taste bud sensation.”

Will says Chocolate Grove is the only Australian chocolate company with Coeliac Australia accreditation.  Many of its products are gluten and allergen-free, and no chocolate contains palm oil or vegetable fat.  

Chocolate Grove has been in operation since 1987, and the Muddyman family took over the business in 2002.
