Original Donkey Balls Factory and Store
Donkey Ball Store
This is a worthwhile quick stop for anyone who enjoys chocolate or innuendo and is passing through Kainaliu on the west coast of Hawaii Island (around eight miles south of Kailua-Kona, just before Captain Cook). They specialize in donkey balls, which are macadamia nuts covered in thick milk chocolate. Actually, they have a whole menagerie of balls beyond donkey: boar, goat, monkey, dolphin.... Whether you want milk, dark, or white chocolate, coconut flakes or a salty caramel crunch, or just candied mac nuts without the chocolate, there's something for you. It's all made on-site, and the smut doesn't stop with the names: You'll be asked if you "want a sack for your balls," too. Whatever you choose, they'll make a great gift... if they last that long. (If you'd rather save the balls for a special occasion, Rebel Kitchen is just a couple yards away.)
