macadamias for days…

Macadamia nuts are by far our favorite! Did you know that the macadamia tree is actually native to Australia? However, here in the United States they’re primarily grown in Hawaii. Macadamia trees were introduced to Hawaii in the mid 1800’s and have been thriving there ever since. Our favorite brand is Mauna Loa! However, because of shipping costs, these delicious little nuts can get a little pricey. They’re totally worth it in our opinion though!
