If you're a fan of richly decadent macadamia nuts, chances are you're already familiar with Mauna Loa's product and its iconic blue packaging. Deepen your knowledge at the Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Factory & Visitor's Center in Hilo, on the Big Island of Hawaii. The "mac nut", as it's fondly called on Hawaii, is one of the major agricultural exports from the Hilo area, along with papaya and orchids. They're a star ingredient in many Hawaiian dishes, particularly in sweets and treats. During your visit, learn how Hawaii's most popular nut is harvested, how macadamia nut candies are made, and pick up delicious macadamia nut gifts, free samples and other munchies in the gift shop.
