Adelaide institutions #3 – Haigh’s chocolates

AaahHaigh’s Chocolates. The name evokes thoughts of silky smooth chocolates in the shape of frogs:

and chocolate teddies:

On a trip to the factory store today, I also spotted these:

Haigh’s is truly an Adelaide institution, established in 1915. You can read about their history here.

My all-time favourite chocolates from Haigh’s would have to be Chocolate Speckles:

Dobs of Haigh’s milk chocolate covered in hundreds and thousands or nonpareils as they are sometimes called. LOVE these so much that mum has to send me a fix a couple of times a year!!

If you visit their stores, they give you a free chocolate when you buy something. Today at the factory store they were very generous: a huge piece of milk chocolate with honeycomb bits and a few chocolate pastilles:

(and yes Neil, there are some dark chocolate frogs on their way to you soon!)

    You know, you could have sent a care package via FedEx so I had some this week…

    I just got home from visiting Adelaide for the first time, and I couldn't resist buying one of the little tin suitcases filled with Chocolate Speckles for my goddaughter. They weren't quite so generous with the freebies when I was there, but I still scored a few tasty choc-coated sultanas. Yum!

    those chocolate bears look as though they've just seen something naughty.
