Did you know that there is a chocolate factory in Seventeen Mile Rocks that offers healthy delights filled with superfood ingredients? If you haven’t visited 17Rocks at 149 Bluestone Circuit on its regular trading hours during the weekday, you can finally drop in on a Saturday. 

17Rocks recently announced that it will be adding another trading day just for your Christmas shopping convenience. Beginning the 2nd of Nov 2019, the factory will open from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. every Saturday until Christmas. 

So, if you’re planning to fill up your Christmas list with 17Rocks goodies, you could set a weekend trip to their store when you’re busy during the weekday.

The chocolate factory is barely a year old in Seventeen Mile Rocks, after having officially opened in March. 17Rocks is a family business that creates stone-ground chocolates using beans imported from Papua New Guinea. 

“We roast our beans at a low temperature to minimise any chemical and physical changes, reducing the concentration of volatile acids (bitterness). We stone-grind the beans to release the cacao butter and create a delightful, smooth, rich and flavoursome chocolate.”

Their products, churned in small batches, are free of additives and preservatives. They use the natural flavours of whole fruits, nuts and spices like matcha, gingko and turmeric in their ingredients.

17Rocks also offer sugar-free and vegan chocolates. 

“Our purest, healthiest chocolate is our 500BC bean to bar chocolates. Our 500BCs are inspired by the Maya people who are credited with developing the process of making pure chocolate, and in doing so, creating a world of chocolate lovers.” 

After Christmas, the chocolate factory will revert to its regular trading hours from Monday to Friday at 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
