Big Island Candies
If it is candy that you're after, there is more than enough to satisfy at Big Island Candies. The hand-dipped chocolate macadamia nuts are a Hawaiian classic. Peanut butter bars and almond wafers are among the other tempting treats. While candy is the main attraction, it is not the only one. Buttery shortbread, rich Kona coffee, Mochi balls and a variety of other local specialty items are also available. Adventurous eaters will want to sample some of the local munchies: try the Li Hing Mui cookies (made with sour plum powder) or the Ika (dried squid). Definitely worth a visit for their sweet treats which are noteworthy as gifts as well.
