Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery // Yarra Valley

Recently a couple of friends and I went to visit the area of Yarra Valley and stopped by the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery!

Yarra Valley is a great area to visit especially for a road trip because there are plenty of places to visit in the area. It is a beautiful place with lots of scenic areas in the country. We were so blessed to have such a beautiful sunny day when we went for a visit.  Today I thought I’d blog about the experience I had at the Chocolaterie!

There is  heaps of information on their website but basically this place is almost like a ‘factory’. There is a sit down cafe but they also sell an extensive  range of unique products (and even a see through window to see chocolate products being produced and made on the spot )- all on a lovely piece of land with beautiful gardens to explore nearby.

Here is a link to their menuhttp://www.yvci.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/Cafe-Menu.pdfyv
Free tastings of white chocolate, milk chocolate and dark chocolate circles!

yvThe Menu! :)yvThey have a pretty good variety of ice cream flavours. Some of their menu items also come with a side of ice cream, or ice cream in their drinks (I’m pretty sure you can choose which flavour you want as well).yv  I chose to have ice cream by itself and chose their expresso coffee flavour! It was really creamy and yummy.  It’s around $5 for one scoop and there is also the option of having it in either a cone or a cup. The only problem I had was that I think the lady used the same scoop from a different flavour (like raspberry?) because I could taste some of that NON coffee flavour which was slightly annoying for me (since I don’t really like the raspberry flavour). I tried a bit of their vanilla ice cream as well (it tasted similar to connoisseur’s version, maybe a little less sweet).yv
And…if you live closeby ;) There is also always the option of buying a tub and taking it home! $11.95. If you go over to the ice cream cart they will allow you to try a spoonful first to see if you like the flavour :) I would recommend doing this if you’re not sure if you’ll it or not.yvThe outside seating area – completely packed but it’s nice and toasty (they have outside heaters).    yvTart served with chocolate dip and cream!

yv Their ‘Chocolate therapy’ display! Consisting of lip balms, hair products and body wash products! Smells so good~!

It is a really big area and I’d recommend coming to check this place out! Unfortunately you can’t have picnics, but it’s a great place to buy quirky chocolate gifts. They sell a range of different products and even teas. Or, if you’re a chocolate fanatic, I’m sure you’ll enjoy yourself here!
