Every tine we go to the Big Island, we go to Hilo and get some candy that we don't normally find (e.g. chocolate with potato chip & macademia nut). Take your time to puruse the offerings. They provide sampes for selected candies, as well as Kona coffee sample. They are very delicious, a bit pricey, but definitely worth the visit. You can see the workers in the factory behind a glass wall making differnt types of candy; from decorating to baking to packaging. You may have to endure the rush of tourists from tour buses. When you see them come, pay for your merchanise and then stand back and wait for the rush to be over in 15 minutes.
