Mauna Loa Featured as a Best Snack in Every State

Food & Wine Magazine named macadamia nuts the best snack in the Aloha State, and we couldn’t agree more. Oh, and not just macadamias, but Mauna Loa’s Maui Onion & Garlic flavored nuts. Senior Editor at Food & Wine Magazine, David Landsel writes, "Indigenous to Down Under the good-fattiest nut may be, but for generations, the Aloha State was the world's largest producer of one of the world's most indulgent natural snacks, brimming with B vitamins and other essential nutrients. A few a day will do you, but try telling that to anyone with a bag of the Mauna Loa brand Maui Onion and Garlic flavored in their hand.”

The Food & Wine team put together a list of “The Best Snack in Every State.” To be considered, snacks had to be able to ship without a lot of effort. Landsel states, “The primary goal of our  state-by-state is finding the very best of everything, we've also aspired to paint a broad picture of American food culture, and to celebrate the considerable breadth and diversity of what's on offer.”

For years, our Maui Onion & Garlic flavor has been a staple amongst locals and visitors alike. For those who have yet to try the flavor, we like to describe it as a Hawaiʻi-inspired twist on sour cream and onion. Our Maui Onion & Garlic nuts are available online and in-store. To find your nearest retailer, go to "Where to Buy" on and find the best snack in Hawaiʻi!

Our sister brand, Hawaiian Host’s Dark Chocolate AlohaMacs was also shouted out as the alternative go-to mac nut snack. Whether you love chocolate covered or flavored mac nuts, it’s an honor to be recognized as a go-to brand. Our ʻohana at Mauna Loa is proud of the role we play in sharing our delicious snacks with the world.
