It’s about the variety at Haigh’s: between selling their giant golden chocolate Murray cod and their milk-chocolate pandas, the Adelaide import also does a big range of loose chocolates, at around $1.80-$2.40 a piece. There’s even a native Australian flavour collection, including wattle seed toffee crunch (with almost savoury toffee bits woven through milk chocolate) and wild lime jelly (a bizarre thing texture-wise – a little like eating delicious detergent). But our favourite is a generously minted dark chocolate peppermint cream. It’s just a shame the chocolate itself is slightly waxy. The Haigh’s shops really are beautiful, classically styled to look like Victorian-era sweets shops and they’re constantly packed. They may not individually wrap your chocolates, but they give pleasant enough service – and free samples. We’ll take two.
