Didn’t sit well with me - watching people work for (I am sure) very little in an excruciatingly boring job and the astronomical amount being charged for the chocolates. I wouldn’t recommend.

Went as part of a wine tour to finish off the day with something sweet. Loved the samples, and watching them making the chocolate was cool. Service was great

This is a great spot to pop in and have a look as you arrive in Kerikeri. Had the two kids in tow and we were given some samples on arrival. Be warned. This is top notch quality chocolate and is priced accordingly.

The customer service was great, they were more than happy to cater for our needs. The samples were generous and very tasty. This is no doubt the best chocolate I've had in a while.

A lovely small specialty shop of chocolate fabulousness! A sample at the door assures you aren’t leaving without more. Watch the painstaking craftsmanship of making their chocolate through the glass wall of windows. And then shop til you drop gathering awesome chocolate. Down side...i don’t...More
