Chocolate dipped Candies on the Big Island

HI! While I was in Maui last May, a lady at the Hyatt told me about these chocolate dipped candies from the Big Island and said they were delicious!! I didn't visit the Big Island last year but I am going there next week. Does anyone know what she was referring to? I love both chocolate & candy. I'd really appreciate it if someone could give me a bit more info on that. Thank you all in advance!

Our favorites are the chocolate covered macadamia nuts, Mauna Loa our favorite brand. We tend to eat them like popcorn,... and yet my bride remains slim. Long's seems to have as good prices as anyone. They alternate which brand is "on special", every few days. Unless things have changed recently a six ounce box runs less than two bucks, or a six pack around ten.

It is Big Island Candies and those are chocolate dipped shortbread cookies. Delicous.

Use the link posted and one is able to order on line even. Free tastings at the factory in Hilo.

what echolynch said. They are amazing.

Each "cookie" individually wrapped.

I've actually never been to the factory because it's too dangerous, lol, but I've been given these as presents.

Chocolate mac nuts are yummy, but a chocolate mac nut to a Big Island shortbread is like a common burger to filet mignon.
