The self-guided tour of shelling, roasting, and other processing that results in bountiful varieties of flavored macadamia nuts and confections is not that compelling if production has stopped for the day, so go before 3pm or plan to watch a video to get caught up. But who are we kidding—it’s really all about the free tastings here, generous samples of big, fresh nuts in island flavors such as chili “peppah,” Spam, and Kona coffee glazed. (Just the plain salted ones are fine by me, thank you.) The affable staff can pack your purchases in flat-rate priority-mail boxes (you just pay postage). Outside the hilltop factory warehouse are picnic tables with an ocean view.
