On our second trip to the Big Island, we drove along Highway 11 and spied from the highway the Donkey Balls Store. It was one of the odd little shops that we had seen advertised in one of the local tourist booklets. Traffic on Highway 11 was a little slow anyway (road crews were cutting the landscaping along the highway),... More

We drove out of way here to try the coffee and chocolates based on good reviews and were so disappointed. No one even greeted us when we walked in and there were zero samples. The place was dirty and small. Utter waste of time. My guess is they offer sample only on cruise ship days. Needless to say I saved... More

Fun and funny employees. Great products made by hand with care. Amazing chocolate. (We went to buy souvenirs for friends and family, but the samples were great. We bought some chocolate covered peaburry Kona coffee beans. DELICIOUS!) We bought a funny gift pack for a friend with 'goat balls' and 'blue balls'. Funny names but gourmet chocolates. The ONLY downside... More

The chocolates are amazing. There are a lot of samples, lots of variety, and lots of humorous nick nacks. We visited twice and spent a decent amount on chocolate. It's not cheap but it's a very delicious snack. My favorite was Monkey Balls. Enjoy!

My husband and I stopped here while on our honeymoon. We bought some hot sauce and a sticker at the store. We enjoyed some free samples of the Donkey Balls. We used a coupon that we found in a tourist booklet for a free tote bag with a $15 purchase. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful.

Chocolate covered macadamia nuts with a fun twist. Several different flavours, and spicy varieties as well. Fun to go and look around, try some samples and a great place to pick up something fun to bring home to family and friends.

We were just checking out stops along the highway and found this place. They were super friendly, gave out free samples of coffee and donkey balls (various food items covered in chocolate). Their most popular item is the chocolate covered macadamia nuts.
