Did not have this on my agenda, but it proved to be a fun and interesting stop. We were able to see the manufacturing process of Donkey Balls (you have to do your on research).and enjoy some cookies and coffee. Quick in and out.

They kept offering us wonderful samples! You can see them making the chocolate balls. They are delicious and did not melt on the way home! Thanks for a great product.

It is a fun and shares the "Hang Loose" attitude of Hawaii. There are a variety of Donkey, Boar, Dolphin, Chicken, and other balls to choose from. The bags include hilarious titles. If you are in the area, visit Donkey Balls, enjoy the product names for a good time.

My wife and I stopped in Donkey Balls to check it out. Passing it over and over piqued our curiosity. Small store with fresh made candies...mostly chocolate but some variety. It seemed like a tourist trap to us...high prices on the candy kept us from buying any. They had samples but we couldn't get to them for the mob of... More

Donkey balls are a Macadamia nut coated in milk chocolate until it reaches the size of a golf ball. They are delicious but not cheap. The store sells a lot of different types of chocolate confectionery and souvenirs. Got a sweet tooth, worth a visit.

Nice flavors of chocolate over various things including coffee beans and mango. Prices are bit steep for what it is but most everything in Hawaii is expensive.

Samples help sell. The chocolates are a little pricey but original and tasty. You can also buy their products at ABC.
