Welcome to the Nutpatch Confectionary Blog! Nutpatch Confectionary opened the doors of its first retail outlet in Novermber 2011, after many years of wholesale production. Situated in iconic Kettering, many have asked why such a location for the hidden treasures on offer inside the unsuspecting shop? The location for Nutpatch is perfect, with the hazelnut orchard located a short 2km drive from the shop and further production also located in Kettering.
A idealic drive for the weekend, just a 30 minute drive south of Hobart, Nutpatch's Kettering shop is sure to excite and please.
Nutpatch initially started production with its famous hazelnut nougat, which has now been diversified to also include almond. This nougat was an 18 month undertaking by confectioner John Zito, who perfected the technique from an age old Italian recipe and hasn't looked back since. For anyone who has tasted or heard about our nougat, it is unique, with its wonderful honey flavour and pure natural products. We pride ourselves for the fact that it doesn't stick to teeth and is a pure product. The nougat contains roasted Tasmanian Hazelnuts harvested from our local orchard, to always ensure the freshed possible produce is used in our products.
We also specialise in handmade fine chocolates and our range of confectionary keeps growing and growing. We enjoy inventing new products and creating things to challenge the imagination and tatse buds. Our blog aims to showcase some of what we do at Nutpatch.
We pride ourselves in perfection and aim to please, whether it be a gift for that special someone or a self indulgence, you are sure to find something to delight.
