Visited on our way to Pololu Valley and were pleasantly surprised by the variety of products and flavors. The staff was very friendly and offered many samples.

Little did we know that this place even existed. But let me tell you this gem has the Best Macadamia nuts we've ever tasted! We are going back again before we leave the Big Island as our treats are going fast. The staff are wonderful and try every sample you want there wonderful. A little extra bonus is the gorgeous view from the parking lot. A must stop no matter what, this place is better than any other Macadamia Factory around.

If you go to a macadamia nut plant/store be sure to pick this one. The sample table is right when you walk in, and it's help yourself(so keep going back). They have lots of different flavors available jalapeño, onion and garlic, honey glazed, chilli peppah(my favorite), even spam(which is quite popular) just to name a few. The flavored macadamia nuts also come in an array of sizes. Also available is local coffee, shirts, macadamia nut brittle, chocolate macadamia nuts, and other local fare(jams, jelly, spices). The staff is very friendly and helpful. They also have a snack bar in the back if you want ice cream or a smoothie. I think they also have a coffee bar when you walk in. Another plus is you can ship your purchase home if you want(if you pay for shipping), sometimes it's more convenient than trying to fit it into your luggage, and hoping your not over the weight limit. Plus be sure to crack a macadamia nut while you're there(just remember to put on the safety goggles). I believe they have a shuttle bus if you're staying in the Waikoloa area(we drove there, but I think the bus was leaving as we were entering the parking lot). If you are on the big island be sure to stop here and buy 100% locally grown macadamia nuts.

A great stop for souvenirs. I grabbed a small bag of macnuts for $5.50 and got a nice tour, and lots of samples to try. Coffee prices are a little high. I would probably look for the chocolates and coffee at a different spot, but definitely get some macnuts here.

If this is on the way, definitely make a pit stop here. Lots of samples and a free quick tour of the factory. It's cheaper to buy nuts here than at the airport or the shops in town. You always have to bring some home!
