Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Factory
You've seen the blue cans and boxes in the drug store; now visit the source. At the Mauna Loa farm and factory, visitors can tour the grounds, sample the products and stop by the Visitor Center. Not only is there a gift shop onsite, but the prices are wholesale. Buy the macadamia nuts plain, salted, in brittle or covered in milk chocolate. Gift baskets and other specialty items are also for sale. Admission to the factory is free.
We are still awaiting an order we had shipped on the 17th and it was due to arrive in Oregon on the 27th. It is now September 1st and it still has not arrived. Other than that, we LOVED visiting the Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Factory! (Russell Price & family)

Tours are ok, but a little noisy and on the boaring side.
The gift shop is nice, and has some good deals on their products too!
I liked the self-guided tour (free!) which was perfect for my 3-year old and 1-year old since we could skip things that were not interesting for them and stay extra long at things that were. And - we actually learned something! I had no idea that macadamia nuts were so hard to crack - or that they needed such hands-on care to get them through the process unscathed!
The gift shop had samples, which my sons loved, and the employees were extremely nice.
