“Seriously Yum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

Look it's a factory so not flash but they make chocolate ....all kinds ...enough said. You can see the chocolate being made, taste all kinds and when you finally choose it is very reasonablely priced. Staff are lovely. So glad I don't live nearby, I probably would weigh an extra 200 kg.

“Great factory, people and products”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

Brilliant to see a small industry still operating like this. We say a number of things being made and the staff expertly talked us through the process while continuing to work and give us samples straight off the line! There was a great selection of products to buy from, free refreshments and clean bathrooms. One lady also gave us a history of the carob tree, some seeds and instructions to grow our own. Doesn't get any better than this - they deserve an award for excellence.

“Friendly and knowledgeable staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Tasty carob! I never appreciated the difference between chocolate and carob - the friendly staff explained and showed us some raw carob pods. We tasted some of the different types and ended up walking out with several packets; very tasty!
Yes, it's only a small place and a little out of the way to the north of Coffs, but well worth the visit. Once we got back home to Sydney (and finished all of our carob), we ordered some more via their website :-)

“A small concern.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

A small family business with a selection of chocolate and associated products. We tried the Chocolate Licorice and the Honeycomb Nibbles. Both were nice.

“Deelish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

A very interesting Carob Chocolate Factory, entry is free and so is tasting.....and it all tastes great. Another attraction is watching someone making Honeycomb in front of you and getting to taste fresh honeycomb also.
Great little shop for buying your chocolate treats direct at reasonable prices.
