Lovely hand made chocolates, buy them as a gift, they wrap them delightfully for you. A little on the pricey side around $3.50 for a single morsel of deliciousness, but what better way to delight the love of your life (or yourself)

This little shop is a great place to buy chocolates made in the local village. You will have the opportunity to taste some of the chocolate flavours too. I would suggests that a lot of the flavours are more suitable for adults with a sweet tooth such as Chocolate espresso and chocolate cappuccino.

I love walking into a shop and being greeted: "Hello, would you like to try a chocolate sample?" Perfect. I loved the window through to the factory so that you could see the chocolates being made - many being finished by hand. Lots of single chocs in the cabinet, and lots of pre-boxed sets with some already gift wrapped. Gift... More

Called in to bribe my daughter after heading up Mt Victoria volcano nearby. Found the prices rather eyewatering, but the samples were lovely. brought a couple of small treats, but never knew plain chocolate could so much!

Thank you so much for your review. We are definitely at the higher end of the market in terms of price, we are handmade, have high grade ingredients and talented and skilled staff, but we think the taste says it all, every chocolate bar, truffle or chocolate literally is a little work of art. Thanks for coming in. More

We have travelled the world in search of great chocolate delights but this just wasn't one of them. I'm sure others may disagree but we found the taste lacking the smoothness you'd expect from expensive chocolate.

Hi Tom, Thanks so much for your review, we would love to know what chocolate you tried so we can look into this. If it was our new Samoan bean to bar then yes sometimes it can get a bit grainy, the high cocoa solids and the very handmade nature of it can lend to this, we do try to... More

Thank you for the review. The chocolate covered honeycomb is one of my favourites too. If there is a bag open here it is very hard to stop eating it! More
