Just in time for the holidays, Hawaiian Host® enters the luxury confections realm with the launch of KOHO. This is Hawaiian Host’s first entry into this segment and marks its first real departure from the chocolate-covered macadamia that the company has long been known for. KOHO invites you to take an experiential flavor journey to paradise with its exotic assortment of dome-shaped bon bons. KOHO is distinctly separate from the rest of the Hawaiian Host product line, which makes it truly unique.

“The dual meaning of KOHO strongly resonates with Hawaiian Host,” says Ed Schultz, President and CEO of Hawaiian Host Group. “Koho is the Hawaiian word for ‘choose,’ which highlights our role in having carefully selected the flavors and ingredients for this collection that best express the Hawai‘i we love. Additionally, koho also translates as ‘the tip of the paddle,’ which honors the spirit of innovation that has driven Hawaiian Host from the very beginning.”


The luxury label features handmade artisan chocolates with flavors inspired by the Islands. In keeping with the pioneering spirit of Hawaiian Host founder Mamoru Takitani, this collection is decidedly fresh and innovative, thanks to its thoughtfully crafted flavor profiles and elegant packaging. Think hand-painted chocolate shells with Kona coffee and caramel nestled within; bon bons infused with tart, yet sweet liliko‘i or coconut caramel — KOHO entices you to take a Hawai‘i-inspired flavor journey beyond the macadamia nut.


The KOHO collection comes in the following flavors:

  • Macadamia Praline
  • Liliko‘i Caramel
  • Hawaiian Sea Salt Caramel
  • Kona Coffee Caramel
  • Coconut Caramel
  • Macadamia Blossom Honey Caramel


The above flavors come in three box assortments:

  • 6-piece “Seeker” box of a single flavor. Choose from Liliko‘i Caramel, Macadamia Praline, or Hawaiian Sea Salt Caramel ($14.95)
  • 12-piece “Explorer” box containing Macadamia Praline, Liliko‘i Caramel, Hawaiian Sea Salt Caramel, and Kona Coffee Caramel ($29.95)
  • 18-piece “Voyager” box containing the full suite of flavors ($44.95)


Within each box, you'll find pieces delicately nestled in trays, wrapped in parchment paper and sealed with a specially designed KOHO label. All boxes include a menu card with images and descriptions of the brightly hued bon bons. Premium ingredients were carefully selected, using locally sourced ingredients when possible.


KOHO by Hawaiian Host is now available online. Visithawaiianhost.com for more information.
