Variety of different donkey balls ( macadamia nuts covered in chocolate) with many flavors. The jokes are fun, the chocolate and coffee good and the staff is pleasant. We also toured the factory where they were making the largest breakfast cookies I have ever seen, as well as packaging the balls'slts abd sugars of different kinds.

The donkey balls store is worth a stop if you are on the highway south of Kona. They have a variety of donkey balls (chocolate covered macadamia nuts) with all kinds of flavors. They sell extra large ones called captain donkey balls, superhero donkey balls. The jokes are fun, the chocolate good and the staff nice.

Very friendly staff. Get to watch the donkey balls being made. They sell their donkey balls, salts, sugars, tshirts and a few other good things. Lots of samples available.

Wide variety of comedically-named chocolate treats, and a great selection of coffee drinks as well. I'm a dark chocolate freak and this place definitely satisfies.

Fun place with decent chocolate. Try it. I found the goat and donkey balls quite good. It's also near a few other fun shops.

Donkey Balls offers an amazing selection of chocolates and a good coffee bar -- with Kona coffee, of course! They will ship chocolate to the mainland via FedEx at what seem to be quite reasonable rates -- provided you're buying and shipping enough to make the cost worthwhile. 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.
