Much like the country of Holland, Dutch Girl Chocolates uses space to the maximum. Its shelves are packed with tempting packages of colourful candy and beautifully wrapped chocolates. Carefully arranged handmade dark and milk chocolates are displayed so shoppers can choose their own combination to take home. Hazelnut caramel Buddha, Chai angel or vodka peppercorn truffle are a few the creative confections to choose from. Of course, much loved favourites such as the hazelnut hedgehog and vanilla toffee are also available. Dutch Girl staff enjoy putting together custom packages and if you call in advance you give them a chance to let their creativity go wild.
Mecca for Liquorice Lovers
Lower mainlanders with northern European roots know Dutch Girl Chocolates for its 70 kinds of liquorice. The staff at Dutch Girl say the sometimes salty, sometimes sweet black candy reminds people of their home country, or it brings back memories for those who have travelled there. If your roots are more local you, too, can travel down candy memory lane with retro favourites such as Pez dispensers, sweet hearts, gum drops and mulit-coloured chicklets.
The Kama Sutra Never Tasted So Good
The Dutch Girl has a line of chocolates that you won’t see if you visit the store. Made from special moulds, the Kama Sutra chocolates are like detailed relief sculptures that might be found in the jungle ruins of Viet Nam – but available in dark and milk chocolate, they’re much tastier. Kama Sutra chocolates are hidden away from the eyes of impressionable shoppers; adults simply need to ask for them.
