A sweet chance to create your own KitKat
Chocolate-loving Sydneysiders, you are in for a treat: the new Sydney KitKat Chocolatory will be opening its doors to the public next month, offering some whimsically toothsome experiences that are reminiscent of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory.
This is the second “chocolatory” to open in Australia, with the first opening in Melbourne in 2016, with others in Japan, Malaysia, the UK, Canada and Brazil. This new store will build on the success of the Melbourne boutique, offering additional premium KitKat inspirations.
At the heart of the KitKat Chocolatory, “Create Your Break” offers visitors the chance to design their own eight-finger KitKat to be created in the boutique. Create Your Break offers up to 30,000 possible combinations, with a choice of premium chocolates, an array of gourmet ingredients and custom package designs. Guests can either stay and watch chocolatiers create their bar, or return later to collect it.
At the KitKat Tasting Table, you can explore a carefully crafted selection of plated KitKat desserts inspired by the latest trends in chocolate. Unique to the Sydney boutique, reservations for up to 10 guests for 90-minute seatings are available through OpenTable.
Toot, toot – all aboard!
You can also taste new creations specially crafted for the KitKat Chocolate Train. KitKat selections with fillings such as yuzu ganache, peanut butter and raspberry and wasabi crème can be selected by guests as they pass by on the train.
For those who want a variety of flavours, the boutique offers an exclusive “Mix Your Break” range – 12 individually wrapped creations, including Cotton Candy, Guava, Churros, Sake and Matcha. You can also purchase unique products to take home. Available online and from the KitKat Chocolatory, these include:
• KitKat Chocolatory Creations: classic KitKat flavours with a dash of creativity. The range includes Ruby, Dark, Marble, Reimagined Brownie, Dark Hazelnut and Orange Almond.
• Special Editions: crafted by chocolatiers, crisp batch baked wafers are smothered in rich chocolate and premium inclusions. The collection reimagines favourites from Australia, Brazil and Japan, including a reimagined Aussie Lamington.
• KitKat Chocolatory Sublime: direct from the Japanese KitKat Chocolatory, this range gives you a taste of Japan with exotic fruits, rare volcanic chocolate and matcha.
The new KitKat Chocolatory Mid City Sydney will officially open on July 6. You can find it at Shop 54, 197-211 Pitt Street. Head to the website for opening hours.
