Ever wondered what flavour your suburb might be as a chocolate? No, we haven't either. But the sweet-toothed folk at data visualisation company Small Multiples and artisan chocolatier Bakedown Cakery have teamed up, scouring ABS Census data to create chocolates for 12 Sydney suburbs. "For a suburb such as Westmead, with a strong Indian population, flavours including cardamom, coconut and cashew join forces to represent the ancestry of its residents. Concord, with its large Italian influence, sees a chocolate flavoured with strawberry paired with a tart balsamic vinegar caramel, to demonstrate its heritage," says Jen Lo, from Bakedown Cakery. Suburbs from Manly to Rooty Hill get a look-in for the Not A Single Origin collaboration. Details: visit notasingleorigin.com
