A True Gourmet Experience
To get to know Mason Chocolate is to discover Mason Gourmet and the delicious experiences it offers.
Carrying lines of artisan chocolate, gelatos and baked goods, Mason Gourmet is a culinary force to be reckoned with. But before delving further into the brand, one should recognise the namesake family behind it. Nigel and Yanie Mason, partners in business and in life, along with their children, first gained recognition with Mason Adventures. The
family empire started out offering rafting adventures, before branching out to other fun and educational activities, including the famed Mason Elephant Park & Lodge, jungle buggies, tropical trekking and mountain biking, among others.
After the unrivalled success of Mason Adventures, the family created Mason Gourmet. The gourmet line comprises Mason Gelato, Mason Bakery and Mason Chocolate. Mason Gelato draws inspiration from flavours around the globe, incorporating them with locally sourced ingredients to bring a local touch in its variety of refreshing flavours. In the other corner is Mason Bakery, parading sweet treats of handcrafted pastries and confections, created by the brand's skilled bakers.
Deserving a spotlight of its own is Mason Chocolate, where top-quality Indonesian cocoa beans are meticulously processed, resulting in arrays of sinfully chocolateladen bites – from decadent chocolate bars and thins to the delicate truffles and pralines. The chocolate bar selection spans from milk chocolate with 43% cocoa, to dark chocolate with 71% and 85% cocoa, with other unique flavours including rock salt dark chocolate, palm sugar white chocolate and chilli dark chocolate, and all-time favourites like caramel milk chocolate, white chocolate, fruit and nut dark chocolate and hazelnut dark chocolate.
If there's one thing the Mason business empire is known for, it's for the memorable experience it offers to guests. The same thing goes for its chocolate line – it's not just shelf after shelf of artisan chocolate, Mason Chocolate also offers the ultimate chocolate experience. The Mason's Bali Chocolate Tour and Tasting package has been created to introduce the best hand-picked cocoa beans sourced from several regions in Indonesia, and at the same time to provide an experience to remember for the whole family.
The tour includes a behind-the-scenes factory experience – where you can watch the elaborate process of making the chocolate products and, of course, the best part is the gourmet chocolate tasting, where you can have a taste of the various delicacies and decide which one is your favourite.
Have we mentioned that the chocolate factory is located at Mason's Koko Bambu restaurant, a beautiful bamboo structure blessed with soothing views of infinite rice fields and an alluring swimming pool to cool off in? It's where the exciting Mason Jungle Buggy activity takes place, and the venue is also a short drive away from the famous Mason Elephant Park & Lodge. So it's always a sweet idea to make a day out of it. With Mason, you'll get a bite or two of the quality chocolate, a cone of lush gelato and an abundance of fun experiences you will cherish for a long time.
