Let's be honest, we were attracted to the name! It's a cute little shop that specializes in candy and coffee. They are quick to point out that no donkeys were injured in the making of these products. :)

Stopped dead in the street when we saw this place, a minute to closing time. The friendly staff offered us coffee and kindly kept the store open whilst we made our purchases. The chocs have gone down really well at work - they taste delicious!

We arrived literally two minutes before closing as were not planning on stopping but saw it as were driving by. My husband ran in and grabbed the closest item on the shelf and went to pay while the rest of us started perusing the amusing merchandise. The staff told my husband "It will take us an hour to clean up... More

A quirky shop that obviously thrives on its tongue in cheek name and with all the suggestive merchandise inside. The chocolate nuts are tasty and good quality but they are very expensive, as is the coffee. We paid €80 for 3 bags of nuts, 2 ice creams, 1 bag of coffee, 2 smoothies and a straight forwarded Americano, left feeling... More

Donkey balls are chocolate covered macadamia nuts. They have many (50 or so?) variations with different types of chocolate and different fillings. We tried several kinds and they are quite good. The best part might be the names they come up with for the different combinations. You can watch them make the balls through windows in their store, and they... More

Not just your average chocolate covered mac nuts! Great flavors like chili, coconut, and sea salt. Fun little store with friendly service and free samples. Worth a stop if you are in Kona.

This shop in Kealakekua is the perfect place to stop and get some funny souvenirs. They dip ingredients in chocolate and name them, according to their size, donkey balls, goat balls, monkey balls… they even have boar balls which are huge. Chocolate covered macadamia nuts are named donkey balls, but you’ll also find chocolate covered malt balls, strawberries, peanut butter,... More

I was visiting The Big Island and had to stop by the Donkey Ball Factory and Store. They make the delicious chocolate covered macadamia nuts covered in chocolate. The selection is large. They even had the sugar free variety for my diabetic friends. My favorite though is the one with coconut and dark chocolate. I selected the ones I wanted... More

There are so many selections and variations of Donkey Balls that even the most discerning chocolate lover can find something to pleasure their pallet. They have Balls to sample, plenty of souvenirs and gifts for the family and what's most interesting is the opportunity to stand at the glass observation area and watch the confectioner perform the magic of converting...
