In Bali, there's a picturesque chocolate factory resembling hobbit houses located by the ocean, where you can enjoy romantic swings with a view of the azure expanses. The factory, known as Charlie's Chocolate Factory, even features a hand-crafted goose. Visiting this factory is an irresistible opportunity to bring home some memorable chocolate.
Even if you don't appreciate Balinese chocolate for its taste, you might be intrigued by the unusual mixes created here – chocolate with pepper, ginger, goji berries, sea salt, mint, cinnamon, cloves, banana chips, hibiscus flowers, cranberries, and other atypical ingredients. Such unique chocolate can be purchased at factories, large supermarkets, or souvenir shops. It's crucial to ensure that the chocolate is transported in cool conditions to prevent melting on the way to Europe or America.
In major Balinese supermarkets, you can find some Charly's products under the brand name "Bali Chocolate."
