Caroline E, General Manager at Devonport Chocolates, responded to this review

Thank you very much for visiting us and we are glad you enjoyed the chocolates. You are right our chocolates taste delicious but they aren't cheap. Our chocolates are handmade and our chocolatiers are incredibly skilled artisans and with that comes a bigger price, but each chocolate really is a little work of art. More

Just to give ourselves something else to work off from Xmas, we ventured across to Devonport with the Devonport Chocolates in our sights! The shop is only small, but packed full of chocolatey goodness! I'd be surprised if you left empty handed. They have milk, dark, white chocolates, blocks, cream filled, truffles, gift packs and other plenty more little morsels!... More

Tucked into a small area near the Devonport Pier, the ladies welcomed us into their store and offered us a slice of their standard chocolate truffle roll. That sample just melted in your mouth with a delicious taste! We complimented how they tasted better than some of the Belgian places, and they both gushed. They answered any questions we had...

I did a road trip from head to toes of New Zealand and I could say that Devonport hot chocolate was on of the top 3 that i had during the whole trip. Besides this, the chocolates taste like home made and have a really nice appearance. I specially liked the dark chocolate combined with chilli centre one and the... More

Well I didn`t take the ferry to Devonport, but I went to Devonport Chocolate boutique in Queen street. It was my lucky day as they were tasting white chocolate, my favourite. Beautiful store, well stocked with hand made chocolate from Devonport where the main factory is. The beautiful Steph who was behind the counter that day told me a great... More

Always so many tempting things, but I keep coming back for the truffle logs. Great selection of gifts for children and adults, along with seasonal (and holiday) specialities.

We looked forward to this visit! and weren't let down. The only problem was we couldn't buy the beautifully decorated shoes they had made and painted from chocolate, as too fragile. We happily bought some more hardy bars etc as gifts, and the lovely people at the shop helped out with plenty of bubble wrap. It's worth the detour, you... More

What visit to a quaint village isn't complete without some home-made chocolate? Definitely stop here on your way to the hike for the views - a great boost to get you through! Yummers!

Visited here after being told how wonderful it was by the local tour bus driver, really! it is a very small shop and definitely not an attraction, which has some exotic sounding chocolate, which are very expensive. You can look through the window and see them making chocolate, but there is no actual information. The staff member totally ignored us... More
