The Silky Oak Chocolate Company's chocolate

Chocolate that grows on trees

silky oak chocs2 A Silky Oak (grevillea) tree growing behind the factory is responsible for this chocolate company’s name. Previously known as Kramers Chocolates, which dates back to the 1950’s, Silky Oak purchased the assets, including the recipes and tradition, in 2000 and today they continue to produce new flavours and varieties to keep the tradition alive.

The factory is in sunny Hawkes Bay between Napier and Hastings and draws upon all the naturally grown fruits in the area for the chocolates’ flavours and fillings. Factory tours are pretty special with the added bonus of ‘chocolate history’ thrown in. You can check these out on their website.

The can arrange chocolates for that special occasion and corporate gifts; if you can’t find what you’ll looking for talk to them and they’ll customise an handcrafted order for you. They understand that a special occasion is just that – special.

Luckily for all of us, if we’re not able to visit them in Hawkes Bay, their chocolates can be purchased in their own shops in Tauranga, Lower Hutt and Kilbirnie in Wellington. Keep an eye out for their Easter eggs at Easter, they are worth getting an order in for quickly.
