  • Here you can enjoy an excellent hot chocolate "Mexican style" (with chili and cinnamon). Really yummy, and great on cool days. But: unfortunately only available in an NZ$ 11 (eleven) package that adds...  more »
  • After a pub lunch we thought we would have an ice cream before catching the boat. Fortunately we came across Newport Chocolate first and had the most delicious cup of hot chocolate. A must!  more »
  • My friend found this chocolate shop and insisted that we take a trip to Russell so she could share it with me. I have since returned several times and it is now my new favorite. The shop is small and ...  more »

  • Newport chocolates are without any doubt the best you can possibly buy in NZ. The manufacturers use only first class ingredients and - compared to others - know what they are doing because they have heaps of experience and knowledge. Having said this: You always get what you pay for - like in this case where quality and workmanship reflect the price. And the owners are absolutely right when they claim that well explained and clearly stated (in writing) conditions of purchase don't require further comments. Exactly: You cannot order just one oyster when the menu offers only the options of one dozen or a half. Everyone who doesn't understand this has either got an IQ of less than 60 (mentally retarded) or lives in a dream world.
  • Best iced chocolate drink I've ever had! And the male staff member also gave us some great travel advice to go to Long Beach which turns out is the nicest beach I've ever been to! Thank you would recommend
  • amazing chocolate and selection! the frozen chocolate is the best we ever had. Will definitely come back for more.
  • I visited this shop mid afternoon during the week, and the shop was quiet and staffed by one person. I politely enquired as to how much it cost to buy single chocolates. The lady responded rudely that it was very clearly written on the sign and promptly returned to her work with her back to us. The group I was with was shocked at her reaction; she then repeated and said every other customer was able to understand the pricing structure - minimum of four chocolates. I have worked in the hospitality industry and this is not how to treat potential customers. It would not be difficult to explain "unfortunately we only offer chocolates four or more," or to have divided the price to sell individuals. I give two stars because the chocolate did indeed look to be of good quality, but the service was terribly rude. I have been in New Zealand for one year and this does not reflect Kiwi hospitality, not impressed.
  • Plenty of samples. Expensive but delicious chocolate
