Overview
More
Wholesale production of carob, chocolate, honeycomb and brittle confectionery products. Public viewing of production is free so are the tastings. A full retail shop to buy at factory prices & mail order is available. Tea/coffee is available and a colouring-in table for the little ones. Group tours are available for free but bookings are essential as we already have pre-booked tours throughout the year, so email or phone call will prevent double booking. Our grounds are park-like and suitable for picnics. Public toilets - change table.

It's a quick, sweet treat stop that will suit young and old not far off the highway and near close to the Big Banana.

We went to the place on Friday and unfortunately it was not the production day. There were sample of chocolates available for tasting so you can try before you buy. Price was reasonable and staff were friendly.
