FROM THE OCEAN TO THE WATER LILY POND.
The sea in it’s purest state, takes us across an ocean. The book, The Waves by Virginia Woolf is a ripple effect of characters who explores concepts of individuality. Breaking the boundaries down between people, the book flows between prose and poetry. Woolf, herself wrote that the six characters were not meant to be separate ”characters” at all, but rather facets of a sense of continuity. My love for prose I can relate with the flow of water. The first opening lines are enough to hear the voice of a great author and her exploration of identity.
Water is the essence of life just as chocolate is the gift from the fruit tree called Theobroma Cacao. The ‘cocoa bean’ seed not unlike the characters and facets of the book has transformed our own lives. From the outer layer to cultivation, chocolate has a vast maturity and sophistication through the ages.
Fardoulis Chocolate Frogs
About Frogs: Frogs are assimilated to a healthy ecological planet in our environmental awareness. When we see a frog it is nature’s gift of letting us know our planet is safe.
Australia, as a continent of the world we are an island nation.Surrounded by surf beaches, the Australian chocolate frog symbolises our world heritage status and preservation of water life. Almost every Australian chocolate company makes a chocolate frog as part of our love for nature and respect for wildlife.

Our chocolate frogs decided to take an adventure trip across the Pacific Ocean and show you some of their own discovery of the ‘The Galápagos Islands’

Coincidentally it was the Spanish that brought us chocolate as we know today to Europe. Although Christopher Columbus had first set foot on the land of cocoa beans by accident he had not encountered cocoa in all its glory. Unbeknown to him it was used as trading commodity (money) and Spanish women were the first to become ‘chocaholics’ ( a hot chocolate drink) before their menfolk. Does this surprise us?

Water Lilies by Monet
The chocolate frog is our Monet, he studied the reflections of the ‘Water Lilies’. A series of oil paintings by French Impressionist Claude Monet (1840–1926). The paintings depict Monet’s flower garden at Giverny and were the main focus of Monet’s artistic production during the last thirty years of his life.
The continuity of a great author’s book, ‘The Waves’, the everlasting flow of water, Claude Monet’s artistic paintings, the history of chocolate and our chocolate frogs. The cross section themes, relations of following passions, the rhythm of life and cycle of time seems like our chocolate frogs have landed right back on their own feet.
