This small shop just metres away from The Strand has the most delicious chocolates I have tasted in New Zealand with flavours such as raspberry, lime & chilli or Salted caramel, who would be able to resist (not me anyway). Definitely worth a visit.

All I can say really is OMG! I cannot tell anyone enough how awesome, delicious, decadent, and so very special these chocolates are. I visited on the 8th August, and was allowed to try one before I decided on my purchase, That one chocolate made me cry! Genuinely. Never have I tasted such perfection regards flavour, texture etc. Please please... More

Can two hot chocolate drinks really warrant five stars? Absolutely when you have them at Russell's Newport chocolate shop on a really cold July day. The chocolates looked very nice and we were going to buy some. Then the person ahead of us ordered a hot drink. We couldn't resist. I am glad we didn't. The drink was absolutely wonderful.... More

This tiny shop is just off the waterfront near the Russell pier, it has outside tables which makes it a nice spot for a coffee and delicious handmade choc (and conveniently next door to an excellent icecream shop that has the BEST range of icecream that the kids will love). The range of chocs is not huge but they are... More

Took a beautifully wrapped gift box of freshly made chocs to a friends batch. Divine. You can see them being handmade in the shop. Knowledgable and friendly couple run it and helped with major decisions. Rest of trip we had to pop in daily to buy just one chic a day...salted caramel dreamy! Beware the coffee is very strong..just my... More

Managed to consume a box of 9 without a problem in one evening so went back to get more. You can actually taste the flavours in the chocolates which is often a rare thing these days. Great place to visit if you are in Russell and the owners are truly as lovely as their chocolates.

I've travelled the world for over 40 years and have had some great hot chocolates in Europe, Africa and the Americas. Never would I have guessed that my world favorite hot chocolate (even on a early summer morning) would have been found in the quaint town of Russell, Bay Of Islands, New Zealand. Check it out! However, not only is... More

Newport chocolate shop is run by an Argentinian\Swiss lady who is quite happy to share a bit of her family history with you. the products are very good quality as you might expect from someone who is passionate about her produce. the only thing is that the rage is quite limited and you might not be wowed by all that...
