A Few Of My Fav Things - Hawaiian Host Aloha Gems - Milk Chocolate Covered Macadamia Nuts Review



My Aunt Carol and her husband live in Maui, Hawaii. When my Aunt comes back to the "Mainland", as we like to say, she always brings us little treasures from the island. I love it too because it reminds me of the summers I spent in Maui; surfing the waves, eating the most incredible food, and evading beat downs from Tetahs... more to come on that in a later post. 


Unfortunately, I did not get to see my Aunt before she went back to Maui. But when I went home for Thanksgiving there was a lovely box of these beautiful babies on the kitchen counter. My mom was trying to guard them from me and actually snatched the box out from under my camera lens as I was trying to snap a picture. Yes. They're that good. Obviously, I prevailed in the end because you see the pictures here but I had to do so major schmoozing and promise that I would not eat them all. 


There are two macadamia nuts in each chocolate. They are a good size macadamia nuts, about the size of a chickpea, and covered in a sweet, milk chocolate. The milk chocolate has a very smooth texture, not grainy at all. I must warn you though. These gems are addictive. You can't eat just one. 

Personally, I think these make a great holiday gift because they're delicious and kind of festive in a unique way. Or if you wanted you could save them for Valentine's Day and surprise that lucky someone with a box of chocolates and trip to Hawaii!! Just saying. 

If you want to try them for yourself. Here is the link where you can purchase them.
