This is a great place to learn about macadamia nuts. There is a self-guided tour which we found very interesting and educational. You learn the process from harvest to cracking to salting and coating. There is also a gift shop with every kind of Mauna Loa Macadamia nut treat you can imagine. They have free samples so you can make sure you like it before you buy it. Out back is a small snack stand with sandwiches and ice cream. The only downside is that everything has nuts in it - the ice cream and the cookies so if you are allergic, you are out of luck. I would definitely recommend a trip if you are in the area. Probably don't need more than an hour for the tour, shopping and snacking.

This is the second visit for us. We love this place. We go in and they give samples and they have the best ice cream. There is also a tour that you can take to see how the nuts are processed. We have never taken the tour however we love the finished product.

Its interesting just driving down their road, the trees on both sides for quite some time. I was hoping for a little more tasting in the gift shop, but they had some different kinds that I bought and they were very good. I bought a cool pack reusable bag to bring the goodies home in, I still have it and use it for groceries. The little walking tour was pretty good, I like that it was self guided. You could see into the factory well but I found it interesting and wished it were longer. Nice spot for a picnic lunch.

Love Mauna Loa Macadamia Nuts. Especially the Caramacs. If you're visiting Hawaii, They make a perfect gift to bring back to loved ones. Mauna Loa Mac Nuts have been a staple of our christmas gifting for the past 10 years. Oh yes, forgot to mention how much I love the honey glazed Macadamia nuts. Yum! Costco has really good prices for a pack of 6, but they can be more conveniently picked up at ABC stores which are just about everywhere in Waikiki. Fun Fact: In 2004, Hershey's acquired the Mauna Loa Brand.
