Photo Fridays – Non Coffee Treats on the Kona Coffee Trail

Mirielle trying Donkey Balls

While most of our stops along the Kona Coffee Trail involved coffee, we sneaked some Donkey Balls.  Covered in Hawaii travel guides, a few outlets around the island sell locally grown macadamia nuts covered in chocolate.  Forget the chocolate covered mac nuts you see in candy boxes, these are at least an inch in diameter.  In addition to  dark and milk chocolate, you will  find coconut, chili pepper, Hawaiian sea salt and other concoctions added.  Two warnings: these are popular so flavors sell out and bring lots of wet wipes as they are messy.

Less covered in  guide books, but in my opinion more delectable, are the nuts and candy you can find at the Kona Coast Macadamia Nut & Candy Factory.  Intrigued by the building we stopped, took a turn running a mac nut through the processing line and picked up both salted raw nuts and candies: dark chocolate mac nut and coconut bark for me and milk chocolate mac nut bark for my husband.  We shared a little with Mirielle but never let her see the full stash.

I am participating in DeliciousBaby’s super cool Photo Fridays, where everyone is invited to link to a travel photo. Please click here to see more of this week’s photos & stories.
