  • Cookies are the best buy. Recently, increasingly addicted to biscotti. It is yummy chocolate. The rocky road is recommended. So get to taste what bothers says to shop and sample, you can buy with confidence. Kona coffee, cow coffee but coffee there ~.

  • I love this place !!!!Very pleasant atmosphere and great customer service!!! It is decorated pretty nice !! They are super generous with samples . The chocolate covered coffee bean sample was my favorite the other samples were good but a little too sweet !! The best factor about the store that I liked was that when you buy something they give you some free samples along with your purchase !!
  • This place is quite neat. You can see how everything is made through the windows from their store and they have many free samples. We left with a lot of tasty candy.
  • A fun stop while in Hilo, see your favorite Hawaiian treats be made, and enjoy samples. My wife highly recommends a chocolate biscotti to complement your favorite Kona coffee.
  • Wether you are a local or a tourist, this is a great place to buy chocolatey gifts. The packaging and the quality feels special and you pretty much can't go wrong with these as a gift. My favorite are the super soft brownies. When you visit, you are given samples at the door, but keep a sharp eye out for many more scattered around the store. If you want to taste test anything else, just ask.
  • If you're looking for some kind of factory tour on the Big Island, and you were disappointed by the one at the Mauna Loa mac nut one, make sure you make a stop at Big Island Candies! Their assembly line is in the back behind glass windows so you can see how workers make the chocolates. They even work on Sundays! I don't actually really like Big Island Candies because they're too sweet for me but going there made me felt like I was in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It was a wonderful experience!
