The Teeny Tiny Candy Store In Hawaii You’ll Want To Visit Over And Over Again
While the Hawaiian Islands are certainly home to some big names in candy — Big Island Candies, Hawaiian Host and Honolulu Chocolate Company, just to name a few — there is a little-known candy shop that blows all these brands out of the water. Found just miles from the Lihue Airport on Kauai, you’ll want to visit this one-of-a-kind sweet shop as soon you step off the plane for your weekend getaway from a neighboring island or your time spent away from Kauai. There’s truly nothing sweeter than this teeny tiny treat destination.

If your sweet tooth isn’t quite satisfied after a trip to this stellar shop, head to Big Island Candies, where you can embark on a super sweet factory.
