I like chocolate. This place makes chocolate. Instant happiness! Staff often offer you a free sample at the door to whet your appetite. There are glass windows allowing you to see into the factory and watch all sorts of deliciousness being created. 100% recommend the macadamia nut brittle.

Also came here in Dece 2014. The chocolate is amazing, especially the Macadamia Butter Toffee Crunch ($25NZD) which is to die for. would rather pay $20NZD for a box though as there is never enough! You can also watch them making their chocolate treats in the shop through a glass wall that surrounds the kitchen

As you walk inside you are greeted with the lovely smell of chocolate. You can watch all the chocolates being made - behind glass - and there is always a... More

This is the factory where they making hand packed chocolate. Different kinds of chocolate that you can taste before you´ll buy them. They aren´t the cheapest, but definately worthy to buy even for you or your friends. It´s pefect gift and they offer the service of delivery anywhere to anyone.
