A Sweet Sensation


By Ellen Hill

Silky smooth frozen sweetness, the shade of a wide umbrella on a sunny day, and a gentle breeze rustling the famous cherry blossom trees of Leura Mall.

If this sounds like bliss, follow your nose to Josophan’s Fine Chocolates and the experience can be yours.

No matter the season, a visit to Josophan’s Fine Chocolates is a sensory experience not to be missed.

Soft-centred chocophiles can satiate their cravings with a visit to the store, located in a repurposed church at the bottom of the mall.

There’s an array of mouthwatering choices including the popular salted caramel chocolate honeycomb slabs. With honeycomb made instore using local Bilpin honey, Josophan’s owner Jodie van der Velden says the product is sublime.

Tantalise your tastebuds with the ultimate liquid indulgence, a silky drinking chocolate. Choose from many take-home varieties such as hazelnut praline, chilli, chai spiced, orange, Mayan or traditional. Those who can’t wait can order a ready-made beverage to go.

Instore, there’s no compromise to the quality, where fair trade Belgian chocolate and fresh infusions, all natural flavourings and no preservatives are standard. The flavour and texture experiences speak for themselves.

A visit to Josophan’s Fine Chocolates is an experience for all the senses, Jodie says.

“The first comment visitors make when entering our store is ‘wow, smell the chocolate’. The store is a feast for the eyes, with soaring cathedral ceilings and chocolate delights as far as the eye can see.

“We have an entire table of different varieties of rocky road we make onsite, a huge array of blocks and slabs of chocolate and a glass chocolate counter full of handcrafted individual filled chocolates.”

Josophans’ also has historical chocolate collectables like antique molds and seasonal delights during Christmas and Easter, and the new branded hamper box design features eucalyptus artwork inside the lid, a nod to what makes the Blue Mountains “blue’’.

Have trouble narrowing down your choice? Fill a gift box with your own selection, tied with French double-sided satin ribbon.

Quality ice cream served from a dedicated counter at the front of the store tops off the delights, making Josophan’s the perfect place to pause your exploration of the boutiques along the charming shopping strip.
