Review: Sydney’s First-Ever KitKat Chocolatory Boutique

Chocolate lovers rejoice! Sydney-siders can discover a break like never before, with a premium personalised chocolate experience in the heart of the city.

We were privy to an exclusive private preview of Sydney’s first-ever Kit Kat Chocolatory boutique, by Nestlé — where Head Chocolatier Connie Yuen had us feeling like Charlie with a golden ticket.

We donned our aprons, and with VIP access to the kitchen – settled in to “create our break”: a personalised 8-finger KitKat of our own making. The experience saw us picking from four premium chocolate flavours (milk, dark, white, or Ruby), and then up to three gourmet ingredients from an endless array. For my handcrafted creation, I went with “Ruby” chocolate — a must-try flavour owned and pioneered by Nestlé KitKat — plus rose petals, salted caramel crispearls, and crushed honeycomb. Connie gave us an amazing inside peek at the process for Chocolatiers.

When the KitKat Chocolatory opens in Sydney, ‘Create Your Break’ will offer guests the chance to design their own eight-finger KitKat by ordering from a schmick self-serve screen. Create Your Break offers up to 30,000 possible combinations, with a choice of premium chocolates, and custom package designs and labels. Guests can either watch chocolatiers create their bar, or return to collect it in under 2 hours.

Meanwhile, there’s plenty at the KitKat Chocolatory to keep you entertained. Next, we moved on to the ‘KitKat Tasting Table’, to explore a carefully crafted selection of plated KitKat desserts offering the latest trends in chocolate, yet inspired by the history of the brand.

As if that wasn’t enough to excite our senses – we also sampled specially crafted desserts aboard the (highly instagrammable) ‘KitKat Chocolate Train’. Move over sushi train! Think luscious KitKat selections with fillings like Yuzu Ganache, Peanut Butter & Raspberry, and Wasabi Crème to choose from. These can be selected by guests as they pass by.

The KitKat Chocolatory is the perfect place to pick up a quick and nifty gift. The boutique offers an exclusive ‘Mix Your Break’ range. Twelve individually wrapped creations, such as Cotton Candy, Guava, Churros, Sake, and Matcha give guests the chance to select from a whole variety of delicious flavours. If the little bites are not your bag, the Special Editions collection reimagines favourites from Australia, Brazil, and Japan.

Unique to the Sydney boutique, reservations for up to ten guests for the 90-minute seatings are available through OpenTable, and open Monday 6th July. Quick, make a break for it!

KitKat Chocolatory is in Japan and Malaysia and more recently the UK, Canada, and Brazil. For more information, visit the KitKat Australia Website.
