Chocolate covered heaven! They have some Great candies! I really liked the Goat Balls and the coffee was good too. The habanero ones were real good also. So many varieties and most were extremely good!

I wouldn't suggest you go out of your way to find this place, but, if you are out and about, going to the Painted Church or any of the attractions on Mamalahoa Hwy, this is worth a stop. The staff there are super nice and will let you sample just about anything.

Candy , or rather chocolate is a big draw and samples are routine here. This is a great stop to wander into as you pass through this tiny town, and a good place to pick up gifts for the poor souls who are enduring winter at home. Kids love it, and the name alone will bring a smile to your... More

I love chocolate so I had to stop and sample the balls. There were donkey balls, boar balls, chicken balls, and monkey balls to name a few. You can also buy t-shirts, bumper stickers, hats, coolie can holders etc.

The names of all their products are entertaining. Nice place to grab souvenirs and gifts for those back home. The nice thing about this place is that most everything seems to be made locally.

Took second look at first but what else could you call macadamia nuts encased in chocolate. Or a large selection of other goodies. Wonderful variety and fun staff. Bought a variety. Have a cool place to store; melting is obvious issue. That was my excuse to not share many.

We were driving down the road through this little funky town when I spotted Donkey Balls. I had a smirk on my face, quickly parked, and had to investigate. Once inside we tasted chocolate covered everything. I also tasted flavored salt and different flavored sugar. I especially liked the Lilliquoy sugar and purchased some for home use. The staff were...

What a fun place, it really captured our curiosity as we just had to check this place out, after seeing an ad in a tourist publication. As Australians, we love Donkey Balls, the chicken balls, no nuts.....hahahaha....great chocolates and good fun. Check out the bull balls or the super hero balls!

If you are looking for a treat (chocolate) in a fun place? Go to the Donkey Balls Store in Kealakekua. You can watch them make the sweet treats right there. They have many versions of the donkey balls so I would be surprised if you didn't find some to your taste. Go have fun and enjoy!
