The store also offers lots of free samples, so you can taste... More

While traveling up the North East coast of Kona we stumbled onto this chocolate factory and what a treat it was. There unusual assortments of chocolate flavors and sizes of the Balls are wonderful. Beware please, do not eat the whole bag on your drive back to the Hotel. These can be addicting.

Easy drive from Kona. Friendly staff ready to answer questions and offer samples. Bring a coupon from the tourist guide and receive a cotton donkey balls bag/tote. Some shopping nearby on the street - art crafts.

While traveling on Route 11 we saw their sign and had to stop. Delicious chocolate and coffee beverages also. The staff was very friendly offering many free samples. Well worth a visit.

Samples were available and very friendly servers. The variety was amazing of all the different donkey balls. When we were there they were not making them, but the kitchen and window was within viewing.

It is a great place for chocolate covered macadamia nuts. The place is great with funny names for their covered macadamia nuts in all different flavored. I have to go there every time I visit the Big Island.

Stopped here only because my mom thought the name was funny and wanted to look. The people were very friendly and gave samples freely. The chocolate was delicious. I would reccomend a stop to at least see it.
