Chocoholics rejoice! Canberra has a new kid on the block and it’s here to tame all of the sweet tooths.

Our city is the latest location to host a Lindt chocolate shop, opening in the Canberra Outlet Centre in Fyshwick this morning. Fans queued from 7am for the chance to be among the first to experience this long-anticipated addition.

The shop is the first of its kind to open in the ACT and now boasts one of the largest selections of pick and mix available in Australia (lucky us!). Of course, the Lindt chocolate bar has the full menu of all signature hot and cold chocolate drinks available, along with coffee to takeaway.

Lindt CEO Steve Loane suggests trying out the limited edition hazelnut hot chocolate (it’s only available for a few months), his personal favourite.

The store’s atmosphere will not disappoint, says Steve, mentioning that the store is “a step up from the usual outlet fit out.”

“The Chocolate Shop is finished to a premium quality standard, like all of our Retail stores around the world,” Steve says.

“We also have a host of new products to launch in September including an Italian Pick and Mix selection. We offer several products that are only available in Lindt Chocolate Shops and Cafés – these are the only places you will find them in Australia.”

Steve says he is thrilled that the store attracts a fantastic crowd of dedicated, enthusiastic Lindt fans!
