We visited Carobana Chocolate factory twice in two days. The first day we arrived 15 minutes before closing time and we were still welcomed in by Jean and she went through what she was doing with us and sold us some delicious peanut brittle and Anzac biscuits. We then noticed the free quilling lessons and came back the next day... More

You could be forgiven for thinking that the majority of the products here are chocolate coated morsels when in fact, it is CAROB. True, they so have some actual chocolate but the Carob products are delicious and I would bet that if you asked a friend or family member to taste some of their coated honeycomb or coated peanut brittle,...

This chocolate factory is a "mom and pop" place that is a lot of fun to visit. They make chocolate M-F and will let you watch production and give you free samples. They also are generous with free samples of their other products. The owners are friendly and helpful.

Took my mother on a special get away for a long weekend and we found a brochure for this place. As this was just down the road from our resort we visited on the last day on our way home. What a lovely surprise. Quaint, pleasant and a little old fashioned. So interesting to see the candies being made and... More

There are not many places that you can return to time and time again and love it each time. Carobana is one of them. Once again outstanding customer service from Jean, Trish, Ken and Ian. So good to see familiar faces and to treat ourselves to their brilliant product range. Our family loves Carobana and a visit to Coffs would... More

We took the family to The Carobana Chocolate Factory whilst holidaying at Coffs Harbour and it was a wonderful experience for an hour and a half. We watched as the honeycomb was made and then tasted the free off cuts, on venturing further we saw them making Easter products, amazing, then on the other side of the factory was the... More

I've been visiting Carobana since I was a kid and it never disappoints. The staff that run the factory are always friendly and very proud of their product. If you can catch the honeycomb making, its really interesting. There's delicious free samples and the carob is so yummy, I have to resist stocking up because I love it!

We found the Carobana Chocolate Factory to be a warm and wonderful place for the kids to learn about carob and get up close and see chocolate making in action. Our son said 'It was amazing, people kept popping out of doors and giving us free chocolates mum!' The staff were welcoming and incredibly enthusiastic about their factory. There was... More
