Sometimes it’s not the most famous or highest quality cuisine of your hometown that you miss the most. Sometimes it’s just the little things you can’t get anywhere else.
This is a very little thing indeed.
There is a special edition Hershey’s Kiss – the macadamia nut kiss – that is sold only in Hawaii (and from what I understand, at least one online source). While some candy lovers complain about the small quantity of macadamia nuts in each kiss (c’mon, a kiss is a very small candy), I think they are just wonderful. Just enough chocolate and just enough macadamia nut flavor. Of course that would be too much chocolate if you just keep nibbling on them, because they are soooo darn good.
Yes, I have a couple of bags to take back to the vast midwestern wasteland with me. Mmmm mmm mmm!
