Press Release: BIG ISLAND CANDIES INTRODUCES THE GUAVA MACADAMIA NUT SHORTBREAD




Just as spring makes its arrival, a new flavor of shortbread is bearing fruit at Big Island Candies.  The guava macadamia nut shortbread continues to fall in the continuum of Big Island Candies’ confections that take inspiration from tropical fruits, which include pineapple shortbread, coconut shortbread, passion fruit mochi brownies, and chocolate covered passion fruit brownies.  A Guava Macadamia Nut Shortbread Assorted Combo will be introduced in time for the Merrie Monarch Festival beginning in Hilo on April 17, 2022.

 

The Guava Macadamia Nut Shortbread boasts a rich, distinctive pink hue with a flavor that is fragrant and refreshing, an unmistakable expression of guava balanced by the nutty allure of macadamia pieces.  A White Dipped Guava Macadamia Nut Shortbread imparts a whisper of vanilla as it partially coats the cookie with a creamy ivory glaze.  The 19-piece Guava Macadamia Nut Shortbread Assorted Combo will include 9 Guava Macadamia Nut Shortbread and 10 White Dipped Guava Macadamia Nut Shortbread in the signature chocolate brown Big Island Candies gift box measuring 7” long by 4½” wide and 1¾” high.  This 8½ ounce gift box will retail for $16 at the Hilo Flagship Store & Factory, online, and via mail order, and for $17 at the Ala Moana location.

 

“Listening to the requests of customers who adore the Bite Size Guava Macadamia Nut Cookie, we decided to use that general flavor profile as a starting point for our new shortbread variation,” discloses Sherrie Holi, President and Chief Operating Officer of Big Island Candies.  “Although the texture and flavor formulations are different between the two cookies, we like to think of them more as ‘confection cousins.’”

 

Big Island Candies has two retail outlets in Hawaii.  The Hilo flagship store and factory is located at 585 Hinano Street, while the Ala Moana store is on the street level of Ala Moana Center, 1450 Ala Moana Blvd., near the Center Court.  For store hours, please call the Hilo flagship store and factory at (808) 935-8890 or the Ala Moana store at (808) 946-9213.  For more information or to order online, visit the website at www.bigislandcandies.com
