If you happen to be in the neighbourhood it's a comical stop. The chocolate-covered macadamias are tasty, but no better or worse than similar products offered elsewhere. Apparently the testicle-humour is the defining feature.

My husband, three sons and I went here one of the last days we were in Hawaii. What a hoot! Tons of funny named chocolate confections (all balls), and they are really good. The proprietors are fun and pleasant. T-shirts, stickers and great coffee too....More
