A glimpse of another best seller, right near the front counter.
The Nut Shop at Sydney's Strand Arcade boasts a rich, family heritage since 1939. A family run business, with a unique shop front that is ever so popular among many from different backgrounds. All of the nut products, some of which contain chocolate - are made at their factory in Waterloo.
Some beautiful chocolate treats
Paul and his staff - especially Susie, Natalie and Tina are ever so thrilled to be of service. If you've ever wondered where that old fashioned service left to go to - there is no need to ponder on this thought anymore. Good old fashioned service reigns with a vengeance right here.
Another chocolate tour group loving it
Their best seller, the Vienna Almonds are surprisingly really popular among all of the chocolate walking tour guests to date. Many of their other highly recommended products:
Milk and dark chocolate coated almonds
Milk and dark chocolate coated macadamia nuts
Milk chocolate coated sultanas
Butter macadamia nuts
Farm macadamia nuts - as is
Chocolate coated ginger
There are some other amazing treats, including some chocolate coated ginger. This little boutique is well organised, and the display at the counter ensures salivation for sure. Many of my chocolate walking tour guests have made purchases here on previous chocolate walking tours. Great gifts for sure.
Beautiful shop window
