There they are making the taro chips right before your eyes and you can sample a variety of flavors.

“crispy tasty magic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

so the day we left Kaua'i, the husbanator insisted that we go pick up 4 more bags of the Okinawa sweet potato chips "because you can't stop talking about them." he then gallantly protected them as a carry-on bag so they made it back to mainland uncrushed. yeah, they are THAT good.
the taro chips are pretty awesome too, and yes, it's basically a house in Hanapepe with an uncle in slippers throwing batches of thin-sliced root veggies into a wok of oil. but it is crispy tasty MAGIC that comes out.
just go! and chat with the uncles if you have time, they're great.
