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.
The chocolate must be incredible because, the sugar-free chocolate is amazing! Of course I tasted some chocolate in the store but I made the mistake of not tasting the shortbread cookies. I did buy some of the sugar-free, sugar-free chocolate dipped shortbread cookies and took them home. Boy, when I opened the package and tried them, I just couldn't believe they were sugar-free! They are so good....hence why I made a mistake, I should've bought more!
Now for the store itself, very professional, friendly staff and very nice displays and setting. I particularly like the glass enclosed work area where I could see the workers busy making the chocolate covered macadamia nuts. A must visit when visiting the Big Island. Only drawback is that the treats are a bit pricey but, I will not let that stop me from purchasing the cookies again. Yummy!
I went to my niece's wedding shower and these are the party favors.I was very impressed and i couldn't get enough of it, the next day i ordered online and can't wait to have them again w/ my favorite coffee.
I had this biscotti in my hotel suite when I went to the Big Island and I was hooked from the first bite! I now order it on a regular basis from their website and have it shipped to my home in the U.S. The delivery is top notch and not one was broken...looked as if I pick it right off of the shelf in the store! Well worth the price, and just look at the beautiful gift wrapping! Classy!
