Those in the Hunter Valley with a sweet tooth will want to ensure they swing by this popular hybrid chocolate store/factory in Pokolbin, which offers an immense variety of chocolate types and flavours as well as quality fudges and other confections that are made on-premises. There are a host of inventive and unusual chocolates to try, with standard types such as truffles and cremes intermixed with some standouts such as Chilli chocolate for the adventurous. The array of chocolates on offer here can make it difficult to decide on just one - so those on a diet beware! Visitors to the Hunter Valley Chocolate Company can gaze through viewing windows into the production area to see sweets being made, while the store is quite large and thus ample time can be spent simply browsing and sampling the various kinds of chocolate available. Other goods such as jams, ice-creams, relishes and condiments round out the store's offerings, and while the price of most of its goods lies toward the higher end of the scale, they're all of a universally high quality. In addition, the excellent cafe on site makes for a great spot to take a break amongst the Pokolbin countryside, making the Chocolate Company an ideal stopover point when travelling the rest of the Hunter Valley.
