Adora handmade Belgium chocolates in Newtown

Adora handmade Belgium chocolates have opened a new store in Newtown

When Anon dozed off in front of “The young Pope” the other night I finished off a box of Adora handmade chocolates……..there its out…… It was me, not Audrey ( the cat ).

Our neighbours Clair and Paul introduced us to the Adora chocolate when they dropped in for Christmas drinks…yes yes I know its early..but we’ll be away for Christmas….and bought us a box of these delicious new arrivals to the suburb… my favourite …. the chilli.

The Shop in Newtown is the 6th store to open, their Earlwood store celebrated its 20th anniversary last August. I’m sure they’ll do extremely well. The quality is out of the box and the prices – I think reasonable. –


It was a passion that drove two sisters to create Adora Handmade Chocolates in 1993, part-time from home.

Winning numerous Gold and Silver awards and contracts, including supplying the Sydney Opera House, increased demand for their unique chocolates and forced them in 1997 to relocate to commercial premises.
In 2006, they opened a second retail store located within the Wentworth Connection in Sydney’s CBD. A third retail store located in Parramatta opened in 2011, and their Rose Bay store in 2012.

Adora Handmade Chocolates has developed a reputation for truffles with vibrant, fresh flavours. Eschewing fancy moulds and decorations, Adora Handmade Chocolates followed their customers’ preference for a more natural look.

Their customers were clamouring for fresh cream chocolates without added preservatives or artificial flavours and that is exactly what they got and continue to receive. The highest standards are upheld and the fresh ingredients include Belgian Callebaut chocolate, cream cultured butter, raspberry, lime, passionfruit, mango, freshly brewed espresso coffee and wattleseed (a species of ‘bush tucker – native Australian food’) as well as the more traditional pralines, ganache and marzipans.
