Wonderful place. Its an old factory and the people who work here are so nice. Free degustation of many chocolate. They propose some tea too. We bought some chocolate and fall in love for the honey comb!

such a nice little place to visit, kids loved seeing the chocolate being made, they even got to taste test some fresh choc coated honeycomb straight from the production line. Was so cheap to buy the chocolate and brittle etc. Wish we brought more than what we did.

Watch the video, chat with owners. Production only Monday to Thursday and sometimes Fridays. The honeycomb secret is there

This was a serendipitous discovery as we explored Coffs Harbour. We were greeted in the carpark by some colourful lorikeets and once inside, were warmly welcomed by a staff member who took time to explain the manufacture of different products and introduced us to the man making honeycomb. He was so friendly and passionate about what he was doing! Very... More

Took our kids who loved watching the production. Staff were informative and friendly. Very encouraging of the children watching and learning. We were there for a while! Good selection of treats to buy for reasonable prices 😊

This factory is a "blast from the past". It is still family owned and operating as it did in 1980. That is what makes it so great ! Apart from being able to see trays and trays of honeycomb being manufactured, you can watch how various products are coated with carob. The staff willingly describe the processes. There is a...

Spent a good hour at the factory which is easy to miss if coming from the Coffs end of the road! There's a small car park so no trouble parking. They were making the peanut brittle in the factory and gave us a full description of the process and some samples to try. It's fascinating watching the brittle being rolled... More
