About Us Bundaberg Chocolate Shop

Melanice Jacobsen Owner Cha Cha Chocolate


Not many people are in LOVE with chocolate like Melanice, the owner of Cha Cha Chocolate, The Chocolate Shop In Bundaberg everyone is talking about!
The smell and taste of chocolate will always remind her of her own childhood. Her father, Barry Jacobsen taught her everything she knows in industry from working in the previous family chocolate business. 
Having supplied Candy Buffets for special events since 2011, opening The Chocolate Shop for Melanice was about taking her enthusiasm for all things chocolate to the next level.
Cha Cha Chocolate first opened its doors in October 2017 as a “pop up shop” for 8 weeks, within days of opening Melanice knew this was something special and everything she had dreamed about. Two years later and the business is overflowing daily with local support and visitors from all around Australia and the World. 
While many of us can only dream of the old-fashioned favourites, Melanice was focused on bringing them back such as Polly Waffles, Russian Fudge, and Gourmet Rocky Road just to name a few.
Melanice said there was nothing better for her to see customers walk into The Chocolate Shop for the first time and smile with surprise to experience the magic and variety we are known for.
As the seasons change so does Bundaberg Chocolate Shop. Easter and Christmas are the most exciting times of the year. We order all our European Chocolates six months in advance and when it starts to arrive we know it’s time to hang the decorations and get excited about unwrapping and tasting each new product.
“At a very young age I spent a lot of time in the factory watching my father making his Fudges, Brittles, Chocolate Bars and Rocky Road and then in my early twenties I continued to work for the family business."
“We add new products daily to The Chocolate Shop, our most exciting and biggest seller is our handmade chocolates from Sydney in our Vintage Chocolate Cabinet, with over 50 varieties to chose from, there is something for everyone.”
Positioned at 84 Bourbong Street in the heart of the Bundaberg CBD the shop truly has to be seen to be believed, especially given the creative spin that Melanice puts on everything. Also known for her attention to detail everything is an experience and stepping inside the front door you will see for yourself why everyone loves Cha Cha Chocolate.
Cha Cha Chocolate specialises in Handmade Fudges, local Bundaberg Products, European Chocolates, Gourmet Gift Hampers, Specialty Chocolates and Vegan & Dairy Free Products.
Melanice is so proud of what she has created for everyone to experience and she looks forward to seeing you.
