It feels like Christmas was only yesterday, but time flies when you’re having fun! And our team are certainly having a blast – especially now that Easter is well and truly in sight.
Over the past few weeks, we’ve been gearing up for Easter. As it sneaks up on us, our team are getting ready for the arrival of eager visitors. In particular, the pitter-patter of excited kids on the hunt for the Easter Bunny’s forgotten treats. But although Easter is still several weeks away, that doesn’t mean the hard work and prep hasn’t started.
Our team in the Depositing Room have already made hundreds of hollow form Chocolate Rabbits, along with a tonne of Eggs, Hens and so many more of your Melba’s Easter favourites. As we have for decades, we’ve been producing our famous Milk, Dark and White Chocolate Bilby’s – an Australian icon, and one of our best selling Easter products. All this chocolate-making is quite the process if you ask us, as many of these characters are individually made, and later hand wrapped, producing beautiful (and delicious) chocolate creations. You’ll be spoilt for choice.
The best part is that you can watch it all unfold before your eyes when you visit… it’s a spectacle for sure! The video below shows our team making some of our famous Milk Chocolate Bunny’s!
Easter Giftware Galore
Besides the deliciousness in the Depositing Room, our Packing Room is bustling with activity! If you’ve visited in the past few weeks, you would’ve also noticed our Packing Room packed to the brim with impeccably wrapped giftware options for your Easter picks. With a diverse collection of chocolate treats, ranging in prices and quantities, there’s so much to choose from you’ll struggle picking just one! And this year, unlike previous, you’ll be able to purchase this range online.
Besides the delicious chocolates to look forward to, the Easter long weekend would be incomplete without some fun, family festivities. This year, like many previous, we’re open ALL long weekend, including Good Friday, 9am to 4.30pm. We’ve got you covered, including free face painting, breakfast and lunch options, picnic facilities and a colouring in competition, there’s something for everyone. As one of the few places opened all Easter long-weekend, our Woodside factory is the place to be. So jot it down in your diaries, and head our way from the 30th of March to 2nd of April, 2018!
