Not just about the chocolate.
Many years ago on the wild west coast of the South Island, lived a man. He was the mayor, the fire chief, the bookstore owner, and my grandfather, Tik Heenan. Tik was also the town chocolate maker, and into his chocolate he poured all his integrity, passion and his love for New Zealand. When Tik was gone, his recipe passed through many generations. Until, when chance came, it was handed to the most unlikely creature imaginable. Me.
For me, it’s never been just about the chocolate. It’s about the people, the place, and doing something we love. We handcraft with aroha and Southern grit to create that taste of New Zealandness our customers love. We’re proud to develop Grandad’s recipe into a company that promotes our heritage to the world through chocolate.
Taste what it means to be Kiwi, one bite at a time.
Factory tours are available for groups of about 12. Come and see where the magic happens, and of course there'll be a chance to taste all of your favourites.
Seriously Good Cafe
Pop in for a coffee, and one of our sugared donuts, oozing with chocolate. We do savoury items too. Our ploughman's sandwich will get you through until dinner. Tomorrow.

What chocolate lovers really think...
Love this Shop. Always gorgeous food and great coffee. The chocolates are sublime. 👌🏼 The graphics on the boxes are so stunning, they make amazing gifts with the great local content.
Hands down the yumiest chocolate I have tried in a long time! Something to suit everyone's taste and Kiwiana Chocs make brilliant gifts 💟
I was given the Wine Collection box. It was the best chocolate present I've ever had - and I've had a lot. ALL the flavours are divine but the Pinot one was the most delicious chocolate I have ever eaten. I'm not joking. 13/10.
I always buy my mum Rocky Road that she loves and send it to her for all those special times...when Mum comes for a visit we have to go and get her treat💜
