Moddy’s aka Modern Stores Ooty

A trip to Ooty is incomplete without tasting and bringing-back home-made chocolates. The art of making chocolates was introduced by the British in the 1800s, when Udhagamandala (the actual name of Ooty) rose to become the numero-uno place for ‘British Collectors’ to spend the summers in south India.

Ooty is the home to two of the oldest home-made chocolatiers in India – Kingstar Confectionary and Moddy’s.

Moddy’s aka Modern Stores has been delighting chocolate-patrons from school kids to tourists to food-connoisseurs to the locals, since 1951 with over a 100 varieties of home-made chocolates.
