Big Island Candies New Product Alert: Haupia-Flavored Confections

Thank you to our sponsor for the complimentary product! 

I have become a huge fan of Big Island Candies products, now that I can get them on Oahu from their store in Ala Moana Center. When I was asked if I wanted to sample their upcoming product release, I did not hesitate at all! 

Starting on March 22, 2024, you can find these haupia-inspired confections at Big Island Candies' stores on Oahu and on the Big Island, and on their website at bigislandcandies.com.

The Haupia White Dipped Macadamia Nut Shortbread features their signature macadamia nut shortbread, dipped in a creamy white coating made with pieces of coconut. 

These cookies come in gift boxes of about 17 individually wrapped cookies, perfect for gift-giving or for snacking on in your home or office.

Each cookie is diagonally dipped by hand by Big Island Candies' employees at their Flagship Store and Factory in Hilo on the Big Island. If you have not ever been to their Flagship Store, you need to go! They have an open kitchen area, and if you're lucky, you'll get to see the hand-dipping in action! It's amazing how consistent they are with the hand-dipping. 

The Haupia Macadamia Nut Bark consists of dry roasted macadamia nuts and crisp rice, held together by a white coating with coconut bits, giving it a subtle coconut flavor. 

An 8.5 ounce bag includes approximately 5 pieces of bark. 

I suggest pairing this with a cup of hot Kona coffee - the bark is rich!

Prices are as follows:

Ala Moana Store (1450 Ala Moana Blvd, near Center Court):

  • Haupia White Dipped Macadamia Nut Shortbread: $20
  • Haupia Macadamia Nut Bark: $16.50

Hilo Flagship Store and Online:

  • Haupia White Dipped Macadamia Nut Shortbread: $19
  • Haupia Macadamia Nut Bark: $15.50

This product release aligns with the Merrie Monarch Festival, one of the biggest events of the year in Hawaii. The event takes place in Hilo from March 31 to April 6, 2024
