Chocolate Museum & Shop @ Kota Damansara

Just last week I've got the opportunity to join in a tour and fun event with fellow bloggers and friends at the Chocolate Museum & Shop @ Kota Damansara. Now I didn't even know they had a Chocolate Museum, the only one in Malaysia at the moment, an eye opening experience indeed. With no expectations, as I figured it might just be an avenue to sell chocolates, the whole experience got me wanting for more. Check out what they have to offer below.

Welcome to the Chocolate Museum
Welcome to the Chocolate Museum


DR Group Holdings Sdn Bhd, the producers of homegrown brands such as Danson, Fidani and Millton, officially opened its chocolate museum to the public with a unique three-fold proposition consisting of interactive education, chocolate-making experience, and enjoyable shopping (3Es). As part of its corporate social responsibility, DR Group does not charge any entrance fee for the Museum. Reaching the place is as simple as keying in Chocolate Museum in your Waze.

So what does 3E stand for? The Chocolate Museum promises us a fulfilment of the 3E, Interactive Education, Chocolate-making Experience and an Enjoyable Shopping time. Entering the museum, I was attracted by the bright lights, and colourful decor. It was a day of indulgence, chocolates everywhere, coupled with lots of informative and interactive features.

The Museum aims to educate and create awareness among the public on everything there is to know about chocolates including the origin of chocolates, health benefits of eating chocolates and chocolate-making process in the industry.

Guided by our very enthusiastic tour-guide, we were brought along the exhibits, where he explained the history of chocolate, and how it's being produced, to the extent of going into the health benefits as well. Yes, Chocolates are good for you kids, just remember to wash and brush your teeth thoroughly after consuming.

DR Group imports popular international chocolate brands directly from the manufacturer and distributes them around Malaysia. The warehouse stores about 400 tonnes of freshly-produced local chocolates via its subsidiaries, Quantum Supplies (M) Sdn Bhd and Fidani Chocolatier Sdn Bhd, and freshly-imported chocolates like Ferrero, Hershey’s, Lindt and Nestle which are available for purchase at bargain prices at the retail shop within the Museum.

In addition to live demonstration of hand-made chocolates by in-house chocolatiers, the chocolate kitchen is equipped with an innovative printing system that allows direct printing onto various food including chocolates, cakes and biscuits. The Museum is also able to provide personalized chocolates to fit any occasions.

The live demonstration was amazing, as we get to watch how the chocolates were made. The best part? We get to taste as many chocolates as we want during the demonstration session. Oh my, I think I took way more than I needed, just because they're so delicious, sweet and yummy.
