Discovering chocolates at The Cocoa Trees

This one day, a colleague brought peanut butter Oreo cookies to work. Of course, they were wiped clean in minutes. But everyone was also wondering where to find them again. As luck would have it, I was invited to visit The Cocoa Trees.

The Cocoa Trees I visited is a shop-in-shop at Nature’s Basket, Hill Road, Bandra (W). Apart from selling giant Oreo Cookie packages, the retail concept store sells the widest range of quality, recognized chocolate brands like Anthon Berg, Cadbury, Celebrations, Chupa Chups, Cote d’Or, Daim, Droste, Duc d’O, Fazer, Ferrero, Gavottes, Goldkenn, Haribo, Hawaiian Host, Hershey’s, Jelly Belly, Jules Destrooper, Kagi, Kinder, Lorenz, M&M’s, Maltesers, Mars, Mentos, Merci, Milka, Ritter Sport, Snickers, Starburst, Storz, Swiss Delice, Taveners, The Belgian, Tic Tac, Toblerone. Basically, the A-Z of international chocolates.

Do you remember that F.R.I.E.N.D.S episode where in the midst of Ross & Emily’s back and forth, all Joey cares about is the large bar of Toblerone? We found a huge ruled bar of Kinder at The Cocoa Tress and may I say, the photographeress was very pleased?

The great thing about The Cocoa Trees opening up in a location other than the airport is that you needn’t just buy your favourite international chocolates from the Duty-Free. Plus, The Cocoa Trees is always running some or the other promotion and you can make hampers to gift your loved ones. The store earns brownie points from me. 🙂

Spiritzzz... Adding to your lifestyle
Spiritzzz… Adding to your lifestyle

Some time ago, a store called Spiritzzz got in touch with me. It was rather interesting because they believe your shopping experience should be combined with a pampering session. The store offers not only ready-made apparel, jewellery and accessories but also a hair and make-up studio. While you shop from a wide range of dresses, tops, tunics, jumpsuits and the like, you could get a haircut, blow-dry, hair spa, foot spa or face rejuvenation treatment. Now that’s something I’m willing to try. Aren’t you? Especially since the store is giving away vouchers to 3 of you lucky readers this month. One is for a hand spa, the other for a foot spa and yet another for a facial treatment. It’s simple. Write to me (in the comments below) explaining what it is about shopping that makes you want to pamper yourself. The best answers win. 🙂
