It was on our way to National Volcano Park- we stopped in and got a few drinks and bought a bag of donkey balls "salty".

You'll probably stop here because of the funny name and it is a cool place. While I agree the chocolate is good, I've had better. The coffee though is REALLY good. It must be the combination of the sweet chocolate smell and the mellow coffee, whatever it is it's great. Stop here, and grab a cup.

The chocolate here is very tasty! They give you a few samples when you come in. I tried the coconut one and the caramel one. Both were very good. They have interesting names for their chocolates, such as "salty balls", "tiny balls", etc. I ended up purchasing a bag of their "dirty balls" - dark chocolate with cocoa powder. They... More

While traveling around the Island we past a store called the Donkey Ball Factory. With a name like that we had to stop and see what it was all about. Well the store/factory is a landmark. They make assorted candies called Donkey Balls. Such varieties as "Blue Balls", "Salty Balls", and more. (I don't want to spoil it for you... More

If you love coffee and must-have-coffee-often this is for you! The aromas are wonderful and the most difficult thing is deciding which coffee you are going try. Chocolate samples--YUM. We were amused with the signs, packaging and Tshirts. My favorite Tshirt was "I don't have a problem with caffeine, I have a problem without it".

After passing this place 4 or 5 times the kids wanted to stop. It was nice to see the workers make the chocolates while we were there. There were also samples but don't take too many or they will start to give you weird looks. After trying the samples, we changed what we got. It was a nice place to... More

I had high expectations so this wasn't my favorite place on the island, but it's worth a stop. Tasted some of the varieties they offer and they r good but not the greatest I've ever had. Didn't purchase any balls but did try a coffee drink and that was quite good. Things are a bit pricey but definitely creative and... More

If you drive by you need to stop. This is a fun, cute little chocolate company that will make you laugh. Their chocolate is good too! If you don't want to make the drive, you will find some of their "balls" sold other places including the airport store.

We had a beautiful drive down to this store and enjoyed the samples as well as watching them make the all the different types of chocolate coated macadamia nuts or malt balls. They also have their own funny named coffee roasted there. We had a blast in the store.

If you like chocolate you will love Donkey Balls. You can also purchase different types of balls like dirty balls and frosty balls. The store is pretty funny but they do make great balls. Aloha
