“Yummy but getting more expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

I headed off to Haigh's today for a spot of Easter shopping, prepared to spend a little more on chocolate than in 'everyday' shops. However, I was in for a shock. I am absolutely certain that the prices have increased significantly since last year - $11.75 for a small dark chocolate billy and $7.20 for a 70g egg! I decided to leave the egg at the shop and purchase some Lindt eggs (which are also delectable) instead. I'm sorry to say that I will be buying far fewer products at Haigh's in the future.

“LOVE this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Its like Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory. So much of Haigh's chocolate is made by hand and it is a joy to see people packing and making the lovely chocolate. Also you get free samples - yum!! and there is a section of the shop that has factory seconds - double yum!

“CHOCOLATE YUM!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Anyone and I mean anyone can find their chocolate here at Haigh's. Beautiful dark or milk chocolate available at pretty good prices. Really loved the Easter egg range. Well worth a visit to the shop, just make sure you eat them quickly before someone does it for you.

“An Adelaide icon?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

An Adelaide icon on the corner. There is quite a queue in there often.Some nice stuff, but a Bit pricey ! They also give you chocolates to taste when you buy!
