There seems to be several locations for Makana Confections. We were near Blenheim. The shop itself is pretty isolated, nestled among vineyards. There are no other stores near it. The employees were very friendly and helpful. You can watch them make the candy right there....More

Saw the sign and had to stop as a couple of chocoholics in the car. Neat shop and factory and I must confess we bought a few chocolates.

Watch them creating their masterpieces right in front of your eyes. Lovely stuff. Only complaint was that there were not enough small pieces or packages to buy. Pretty pricey.

Dont do what I did and walk in on your own. I was completely ignored. Not offered any tasting or any help. I found their selection quite limited and very overpriced. I bought some espresso sticks at some ridiculous price. Next time I'll get them...More

Perhaps not worth going out of your way to find, but if you're doing a perambulation around the local wineries it's worth a ten minute stop here to taste the samples and have a look into the kitchen. Friendly staff and well-presented products. Having said...More
