- This question comes up a lot at the Federation Chocolate factory especially when we talk about the different types of products we make. For our premium chocolate we tend to use the word Cacao (It sounds fancy) and for our normal chocolates we either use the word chocolate or Cocoa. The truth is that any of those words is acceptable and means the same product. The word Cocoa is derived from the Spanish word Cacao which is derived from the Nahuati (Aztec) word Cacahuati. Chocolate is usually used for the fully processed product which is formed into blocks, callets, buttons etc. As an a side if you are interested in what Aztec Cacao was like our Papua New Guinea chocolate is made from the same variety of bean that the Aztec used.
Don't Take Our Word For it! Here's What Our Customers Think:
A colleague at work had a family member who brought them some chocolates, I tried the Honeycomb and was blown away by the taste and texture. I decided that I would buy some for my wife and ordered the honeycomb, strawberry and salted caramel. Each block of chocolate had amazing and differing levels of taste, my wife very much approves. Of the salted caramel where there is no over the top taste of salt, more smooth tones through out. A day after I received the delivery I received an email from Maurice and I am truly impressed with the overall customer service and quality of the chocolate sold. I received the chocolates the next day! I will definitely be ordering more and going to see their store in person!
Yummy chocolate! There are quite a few chocolate places around but this was small and delightful and, although the chocolate was excellent, it was nowhere near as pricey as some we visited. The chocolatier was fun to watch too.
We were curious how Tasmanian chocolate would taste. We went inside the Federation Artisan Chocolate in Taranna. Interestingly enough, outside the shop there was an illustration of a tree being cut and a wooden statue of a Tasmanian devil. Once inside, someone showed us how they made their chocolate. The factory was right there for anyone to enjoy! We could even taste the chocolate. It was delicious! We bought some chocolate bars. We used it for our desserts.
great unique flavors and speedy delivery with good communication. try the apple and cinnamon it is to die for!
