Rarotonga is so lucky to be surrounded by the most beautiful flowers in the world. The scents, starting at sunrise, and never ending have to be smelt to be believed. We make here the most delicate of perfumes, complimentary body cosmetics, candles. Finally our local fruit liqueurs bring flavor as well as scents to the palate.Our Factory in Panama welcomes you and shows you how our various products are made, whilst in the Cook's Corner we have our famous Fudge Factory! Try an ice cream with chocolate fudge sauce!

Once of those places that must be visited while in the city of Avarua. Unfortunately we were full from lunch that we didn't get to try the fudge, but my hubby and I did do some shopping in this cute store. They have beautiful souvenirs and lovely smelling perfumes that capture the tropical vibe.

I visited this lovely little shop that has a variety of souvenirs such as soaps, magnets and jewellery. The staff are friendly and helpful, and tempt you to try their fudge. The fudge is simply divine. I bought some creme brulee fudge - it was delicious. Also tried the chocolate fudge and would have bought some, but didn't want to... More

The fudge at this place is so good. This is always one of our first stops when we return to the island and we always bring a little more back with us!

This is a great little shop to visit for some very cool souvenirs and delicious fudge. We got lots of both from here and visited a few times. Located right next to the bus terminal in town. If you spend $80 at IDCK down the road you get a voucher for free fudge. Yum!

Coconut oil products, soaps, liqueurs, candles, perfumes, little gifts and knick knacks. And of course fudge. Excellent fudge. The kind that sticks to the roof of your mouth and the... More

I stumbled across this delightful shop while wandering around Avarua on a wet day. This little shop is packed with interesting gifts and the fudge was divine. They encourage you to taste before you buy which is certainly good for the taste buds. The staff were delightful and happy to talk about their lives in the Cook Islands. This is... More
