Mamoru Takitani Founder’s Collection

MAMORU TAKITANI FOUNDER’S COLLECTION – the original favorite, now with a new look

Hawaiian Host Mamoru Takitani Founder’s CollectionTM pays tribute to our founder and his legacy. From the beginning, Mamoru Takitani dreamed of being the best candy maker. When his magical recipe for chocolate-dipped macadamias created a sensation on his home island of Maui, he purchased Ellen Dye Candies in Honolulu, a local manufacturer since 1927, and renamed the company Hawaiian Host®.

Mamoru Takitani Founder’s CollectionTM  is made with premium, tropically grown macadamias. Ideal for gift giving and sharing with friends, the entire collection of premium confections (Milk, Dark, White, Honey Coated, and Matcha) will roll out over the next few months at select Hawai’i retailers.


Milk Chocolate Giift Box – available in 2oz., 4oz. 8oz. and 16oz.The original classic confection that started it all.  Whole and half dry roasted macadamias are selected by hand, then covered with our secret premium blend of creamy rich milk chocolate.

Dark Chocolate Gift Box – available in 3.5oz and 7 oz. For dark chocolate lovers, a perfect combination of dry roasted macadamias and decadent semi-sweet chocolate.

*Will launch at select Continental US retailers in early 2019.
