  • Our cookies here was thinking not so much delicious Hawaiian souvenirs, but since became a fan. If you actually go to the store and be like tasting heaven, they will bring the tasting. I had gone from many things not sold only at the head office and check more and regret. My favorite is the Norimaki ARARE with chocolate chip cookies.

  • Yes this place is for tourists and I am a tourist. They are generous with their samples and the view into the manufacturing area is interesting. I guess if you don't like sweets you won't like this pl...  more »
  • You get a sample or two and some Kona coffee on your way in. If you are interested in something they seem willing to get you a sample of that as well. There are some windows which allow you to see som...  more »

  • Such a fun place to visit! You can see employees making the beloved Big Island Cookies which is fun, and the store is decorated beautifully! There is an incredible selection of treats and many can be sampled and accompanied by a small cup of locally grown Hawaiian coffee. The staff is very friendly. Definitely worth visiting!
  • My wife says “this was the best customer service we’ve received on island. You should write a review and include that. Oh, and tell them about how you can sample anything you want just ask. And great job finding the passion fruit brownies babe, I’m proud of you. Those were amazing.”
  • Tourist friendly hot spot. They have a whole system set up to get tourists in, hand them free samples, then have them spend money on their factory direct sale of hawaiian shortbread, brownies, and other treats. Definitely qualifies as a tourist trap but the sweets were good so it's alright in my books.
  • The store was neat. It was busy - a lot of tourists. There were other customers in the store who seemed to have someone who worked there accompanying them, offering them free samples or anything they were interested in. When we went to check out my husband and I were debating about an item and the lady at the cash register offered to give us a sample to help us decide. She was definitely the most pleasant person we interacted with - I wish we had found her sooner! The selection seemed to be mostly different kinds of shortbread dipped in chocolate, and chocolate covered Macadamia nuts, brownies. I wasn’t overly impressed with their selection. I haven’t dug in to taste our purchases yet so I can’t speak much to the quality!
  • Wow!!!! I was like a kid in a candy store 😉 Amazing candy and great service. Martin helped me select the best products for my family back at home, and he was knowledgeable about the samples he gave me. The chocolate coconut bars are the best!!! I will return again 👍👍👍👍
