  • 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 !!
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • All shoppers are immediately greeted with a sample and smile. Erin and Megan answered questions I had. Great for omiyage!
