We always make a point of stopping in at the Hamakua Macadamia Nut Factory when we are on the Big Island. If you go in the morning or early afternoon you can view the factory employees in action through big picture windows as they process...More

Unremarkable factory store with many types of macs. Only the large bags set it apart from dozens of other places. My office-mates were really tickled when we broke open the bags. But, if you don't need 4# of nuts, don't bother.

Stopped by because we’re close. Glad I did. Sampled lots of their nuts and brittles. Ended up with the basic dry roasted. The brittles are awesome and we settled for the coconut. I wouldn’t drive miles out of the way but it’s an interesting 1/2...More

Nice little mac store. Has a nice variety of mac nuts here. Free samples of a number of them. They also have some free coffee to sample. Mac, chocolate, coffee, souvenirs, smoothies and popcorn can be found here. Prices cheaper than at walmart.

Ate probably a quarter of the samples... Everything they sell, there are samples of! We were there at 4 on a Thursday, and there was no one working behind the windows (where you'd watch the production line) or giving the video tour. So, self guided...More
