It was interesting to see how chocolates and honeycomb is made. We were able to watch chocolates being made and taste test the products. The people were friendly and explained about the business.

This free attraction is family run and they are so passionate about what they do. We arrived and were the only ones there with no scheduled tours, but the owner went and turned the machines on to show us how it all works. There is a lot to taste for free both Carob and Chocolate and their prices are really... More

This was magic. The very welcoming and friendly staff show how they make their honeycomb and you are free to ask questions and sample their wares. The product is classic in style and very well priced and you don't feel like you have to buy something. Its a pity this place isn't advertised more as my family found it both... More

I unfortunately came at lunch time and the tour was not on, yet I walked around and sampled some treats. There is plenty to look at but next time ill take the tour. Everything is very reasonably priced and the staff are very nice. A very nice place to stop and stretch your legs

We stopped off to kill an hour or two and we met some delightfully knowledgeable people who were only too willing to share their knowledge. We saw honeycomb being made and licorice bullets being coated. The staff are all willing to chat, plus you get to sample!!!! Worth stopping in to see how things are done.

This little factory is awesome. The staff were so friendly and helpful and we got to watch the staff making honeycomb and then we got to see how it was coated with carob. There were lots of samples to try and lots of varieties to buy in the shop.

Coffee and Tea available with a biscuit.It was free and the prices... More

We visited this small chocolate/carob factory while in Coffs Harbour recently. The staff are very friendly and you can see honeycomb and rocky road being made. There are samples of the produce for you to try. We personally didn't like the taste of the chocolate and carob but the nut brittles and honeycomb are very good. The prices are quite... More

We first visited Carobana in 2000, and we have been back to holiday in the Coffs Harbour area several times since then. There is no way that we would miss out on a visit to Carobana. The products are delicious, our favourite being the carob coated banana and ginger. Watching the production of the products is always interesting, even after... More
