Hop onto a Chocolate-filled Joy Ride

Here is some good news for allĀ chocoholics,Ā chocolateĀ aficionados and people who celebrate food ! Let me ask you this – How often have you longed for those exoticĀ chocolateĀ bites while sitting home or at workplace, or maybe just have had that urge to explore new, indulgent flavors every time a flashy food-channel showed up during your television skimming regimeĀ ? If the answer is anywhere upward of “at times”, read on to have these cravings fulfilled and soothe your palateĀ via an online platform calledĀ PlaceofOrigin.inĀ –Ā Ć  laĀ Charlie and the Chocolate factoryĀ !


In an era of thriving e-commerce,Ā PlaceofOriginĀ creates its own niche by being India’s first marketplace forĀ specialtyĀ Indian foods, regional and ethnic specialties- following a producer-to-end customer format, it delivers delicacies hassle-free at the doorstep. The idea is to connectĀ “places” of origin (offering legendary food products) which are oftenĀ far-off from spaces where we live. Surely you would have heard about the famedĀ OotyĀ chocolatesĀ from the land ofĀ NilgiriĀ Hills or old-school bitterĀ dark chocolates ofĀ Auroville, not to forgetĀ HimalayanĀ food fare , but have you tried them yet? That precisely is what this website helps us do !

Vis-a-visĀ sweet savories, the site offers a range that extends from chocolates, cakes and confectionery sweets to brownies and biscuits. The brand list is quite eclectic with names likeĀ Mason & Co, Sleight of Hands,Ā Moddy’sĀ Ooty, Bean Therapy, Earth Loaf, Ā NordicĀ KandieĀ and others . Prices vary from a low of Ā ā‚¹Ā 120 to the premiumĀ ā‚¹2000+ bracket, so there is much to choose from.Ā But what impressed me was the vastĀ array of chocolateĀ variety, to suit people’s wide-ranging Ā palate, preferences and tastes . Take a look :

  • Gluten-freeĀ andĀ Organic–Ā ones for the health-conscious-yet-sin-lovingĀ millennial
  • Vegan chocolateĀ for the strictly vegetarian folks
  • Lactose-freeĀ andĀ Nut-freeĀ chocolates to ensure one does not miss out on delicacies due to any sort of allergy
  • Citrus-basedĀ for the tang-lovers
  • DarkĀ andĀ MilkĀ chocolates that areĀ evergreenĀ favorites

There are also Ā a myriad concoctions and flavors , and some of what I could gather include cacao, cinnamon, cream, cashew, Ā coconut, orange, apricot, almond, truffle, fruit nuts and even chilly .Ā With so much on offer, it doesĀ makeĀ senseĀ to make a dash for a highly indulgent, chocolaty experience ahead. Also check out some snapshots from the website to set theĀ ballĀ rollingĀ šŸ™‚ BonĀ AppetitĀ !
