How can you miss out on the Donkey Balls experience? They have free samples, great coffee and awesome gifts. They have the gifts for folks you hate buying gifts for. Great chocolate and macadamia nut concoctions in so many different flavors. The name of the candies alone is worth a visit, so many options from Donkey Balls, to Chicken Balls,... More

Visited here in January on a family trip. Had no idea there were that many kinds of balls - and a great description on each bag to go along with them! Was kind of a side trip but we had a blast hollering out each kind of ball we could find. It was also informative, you watch them making them... More

This cute little store is the original location. They have free samples and a multitude of things to look at as well as a window into the making of the chocolate balls themselves. Would highly recommend this to anybody that loves chocolate or just wants a sweet treat.

My sister visits Kona regularly, and said that the Donkey Ball factory was a must! She wasn't kidding! They have so many flavors and options. Allergy friendly. Very nice staff and very funny! Good sense of humor! 💋

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).

When we were planning our trip a friend said we had to try donkey balls. Turns out we were staying less than ten minutes from the factory so we stopped by to see what the fuss was all about. While in the store you can watch them making the assorted candies through a window and sample some of the treats... More

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'.
