Uniquely flavored chocolate balls. Fun quick stop. I tried a few and bought several. An island tradition that will be a hit for chocolate lovers. (I am not).

Free samples and an extremely nice sales clerk! We talked about a lot of stuff, grabbed some samples, and bought some donkey balls of course. Cute

If you love chocolate and nuts, this is your place! They have all kinds of macadamia nuts coated with chocolate. Crusty balls. Blue balls, dusty balls, flakey balls! The names are funny but the stuff is awesome. Check them out. The staff is funny and super friendly. Lots of free samples. They have chicken, goat and boat balls too'.

I stumbled upon Donkey Balls in a local market in Waikoloa. After quickly eating a half pound of the chocolate covered macadamia nuts, I was curious to see what other varieties they manufacture. On the drive to Kealakekua Bay we stopped to explore the store. It felt a little touristy, but they were well stocked with a variety of balls.... More

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.
