Driving north from Kona, this factory is on highway 270 and the staff is very welcoming and helpful. We sampled all the flavours, bought a few of them as presents for friends back home and kept a few like the brittle for our own enjoyment....More

This very friendly store and warehouse shows you how the macadamia nuts are picked and processed for consumption. They had wonderful products from local vendors.
