Willie’s Wonky Chocolate

Jun 10, 2010 @ 21.33

Willie Harcourt Cooze’s chocolate is finally available in Singapore! If you’ve heard of or watched the show Willie’s Wonky Chocolate Factory on Discovery Channel, you’ll know what I am talking about. This guy had a big dream to sell good quality chocolate in the UK because he felt he couldn’t find any. He bought a farm in Venezuela at the age of 27, basically learnt everything from scratch, and after more than 10 years of hard work, he’s finally reaping the rewards. Willie insists on roasting his own beans because that’s where he can bring out the individual flavours of the beans.

He has 3 kids. I think it’s any kids dream to be able to own a chocolate factory (especially one with a chocolate river in it). Lucky them.

The 100% Cacao chocolate is available at Jones the Grocer for SGD$28 for each 180gm chocolate cylinder. If you are willing to wait, it is possible to order them online from Willie’s Chocolate Shop. They cost only 5.99 pounds each and another 4.89 pounds for shipping up to 250gm. That’s a grand total of 10.88 pounds. Given the SGD Pound exchange rate today, you would be paying about SGD$23. If you’re buying only 1 cylinder, it may not be worth the effort to save SGD$5. However if you’re buying more, the shipping charges become more affordable, so go online. And let me know if you do, I might buy some too. 🙂

Meanwhile, where’s that Cadbury’s I left behind the sofa….

    I read the Roald Dahl book and watched the moive, both which I loved! I never watched the Discovery channel one though. 100% cocoa is a must for chocolate lovers like me! Haha. Thanks for the information.

    Regarding your Iceland/NZ dilemma, I vote for Iceland! Maybe because it sounds so exotic and mysterious and more off the beaten path. I suppose both NZ and Iceland offers great scenery and nature, but NZ is more touristy I think. And the last question of your survey left me in a dilemma too. You should have offered more options! Haha.

    Thanks for this….the last time I had Willy Wonka’s was from Candy Empire. Now I can go to Jone’s Grocer or online when I have a craving!! I love it when new products finally come to our shores. Better late than never I say 🙂

      @Sabrina I like to think that I am a chocolate lover, but I don’t particularly like dark chocolate. I like chocolate with lots of sugar!

      @Bookjunkie Was it Willy Wonka’s you tried, or was it the guy called Willie’s chocolate (the chocolate is not named Willie)… I love new products, new food, new ingredients, new cookingware, new cook books.

    It was a Willy Wonker’s bar (got it about 2 yrs ago)….but i think Candy Empire stopped stocking them after a while? I haven’t been there in ages.

    but the packaging was different from what I see here…hmmm…maybe it was not authentic. I can’t wait to try the real stuff 🙂
