Mamoru Takitani’s dream of creating a world-famous candy came true, thanks to his pioneering spirit. In fact, Hawaiian Host started as an experiment in Mamoru’s parents’ attic on the Hawaiian island of Maui.
Hawaiian Host is the original chocolate-covered macadamia. Hawaiian Host is also the largest manufacturer of chocolate-covered macadamias in the world, as millions of boxes of our treats are shared all over the globe.
Hawaiian Host combines premium ingredients–handcrafted milk chocolate, dark chocolate, Hawaiian honey, Kona coffee, to name a few–with dry-roasted macadamias to create its signature delights.
Hawaiian Host products, after years of success, are associated with the Japanese word omiyage, meaning: a thoughtful souvenir from paradise to gift to friends and family. This gift from paradise is how Hawaiian Host shares the spirit of the Islands with the rest of the world.
