Indulge Your Candy Cravings
Big Island Candies is a decadent destination for chocoholics of all ages and tastes. For more than 30 years, the Hilo institution has been known for the quality, irresistibility and innovation of its products.
Big Island Candies is located in a 40,000-square-foot facility on Hinano Street near the Hilo Airport. Candy and cookie makers work in plain view behind a glass window at the rear of the store. Daily tours and free samples are available.
Be sure to try the company’s award-winning macadamia nut shortbread cookies, diagonally dipped in dark chocolate, milk chocolate and white chocolate. The company also has a line of truffles with names that’ll make you drool: Mocha, Hibiscus, Dark Chocolate, Yuzu and Coconut. And that’s only the tip of the candy jar.
The store is open every day from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
