When you tread into the Malaysian waters, it is very likely that you will tour the grandeur that is Langkawi. In between the intricate combination of 99 islands hides wildlife, magnificent sceneries, and deals that all of us would love to get our hands on. Be it clothes, perfumes, kitchenware, or chocolates, this archipelago has some very attractive rates to offer!
However, with tons of options and deals available, getting by can be rather puzzling. So, as a resident, I will take the courtesy of introducing you to the top 12 famous chocolate shops in Langkawi!
1. Coco Valley Sdn Bhd
A walk through the Aquaria Langkawi is bound to be refreshing, yet tiring. At such a time, you can always grab a halt at the Coco Valley Sdn Bhd to satisfy your sweet cravings or hunger! The humongous store houses cocoa products from Fererro Rocher, Cadbury, Whittaker, Nestle, and many more brands.
A stop at Coco Valley has always managed to clear off many items from people’s shopping lists at once. Besides internationally made chocolate, you can find other Malaysian products, cookware, and alcoholic beverages of many kinds.
As the government took the initiative to make stores in Langkawi duty-free, you will not have to spend any money for paying taxes. This means that taking a shopping spree here instead of visiting other Malaysian outlets will definitely save you a few ringgits.

4. Billion Duty-Free Supermarket
The Billion Duty-Free Supermarket is undoubtedly one of Langkawi’s biggest duty-free malls. Hence, it accommodates many stores and a well-made chocolate section that holds the largest chocolate collection you can hope to stumble upon.
Like the others on the list, you will be given the choice to purchase from both – international and local brands. Nonetheless, I will warn you to keep your expectations low as the mall seems to be slowly dying out since the pandemic.
Amongst the things that you can find though, are sweet items from Ritter Sport, Toblerone, Cadbury’s, etc. Each graces the shelf with extremely low price tags so I advise you to get hold of a bag and scoop in as much as you can!
In addition to this, customers can also shop for wines, alcoholic beverages, and other items at cheap rates. Branded sports stores like Nike, Puma, and Adidas stand as the mall’s biggest attractions.

From what I have seen, Zon’s chocolate section manages to be a nirvana for anyone with a sweet tooth. It holds delicious goodies from around the globe along with the best quality local chocolates. International brands like Cadbury’s, Nestle, Hershey’s, and more are endorsed along with regionally produced chocolates like the ones from Daim.

8. Rams Home Decor Sdn. Bhd.
When in Kuah, Langkawi do not forget to check out the Rams Home Décor Sdn. Bhd. Besides offering a lot of popular chocolates, you will find some unique ones that are unlikely to be present elsewhere in Langkawi.
If you are looking to purchase a huge stack of chocolate at a cheap price, this is definitely the first place that you should visit. However, as the low price is a result of the nearing end of the chocolate’s shelf life, I recommend that you check the expiration dates before munching away!
As stated by the name, the store is mostly known for its home décor. Believe me when I say that I have never walked out of the second floor empty-handed! So, while you are shopping for your treats, take a look at the pillows, curtains, bed sheets, and other décor items.

Chocolates, cookies, wafers, and candies from brands that are situated all over the globe feature every shelf. The undoubtedly rich collection will, therefore, let you get your money’s worth.
One of the most unique products though is the exotic durian-flavoured chocolates that were specially ordered from abroad. So, if you do visit, do not forget to give this hyped chocolaty treat a try!

Hershey’s, Ritter Sports, Cadbury’s, and other popular chocolate products are all put on display for you to grab. You should also stop by Beryl’s section as it has a wide variety of chocolates and nuts.

12. Warisan Duty-Free
Since the Warisan Duty-Free store is near a big hotel chain, it is very likely that you will find it near your residence. So, when in a rush to purchase chocolates for gift-giving, fetch your wallet and start walking!
Like most chocolate shops in Langkawi, the store has a wide variety of chocolates to offer. Nevertheless, from my experience, the prices are a little higher than what you would find in the above-mentioned stores.
It is also very likely that you might not be able to find the chocolates or items that you are looking for. This is owing to the huge pool of customers who will quickly clear away the stocks daily.
