Hawaiian Host Goes Tropical With Coconut Caramacs

New Coconut Flavor Added to the Popular Caramacs Line

HONOLULU, HI--(Marketwired - May 1, 2014) - Hawaiian Host, the world's leading brand and producer of chocolate covered macadamia nuts, has announced the availability of Coconut Caramacs, a tropical edition joining the deliciously popular Caramacs family which also includes Maui and Kona Caramacs. The newest Hawaiian Host creation features coconut, smooth homemade caramel and dry-roasted macadamia pieces, covered in signature creamy milk chocolate and topped with toasted coconut flakes.

"It's always an exciting time when we introduce a new product to the world, and this tropical island twist on our fan-favorite Caramacs makes this a very special launch for us," said Rosalie Romo Char, Director of Marketingor Hawaiian Host Chocolates. "The response to our new Coconut Caramacs during our preliminary taste tests was overwhelmingly positive, and we are thrilled to get the product into the hands of our coconut-loving customers."

Coconut Caramacs, packaged in 5.3 oz. boxes, are now available to order nationwide via the company website. Earlier this year, packaging for the entire Caramacs line of products underwent a makeover to better reflect the radiant beauty of Hawaii and the true Aloha spirit that can be tasted in every box.

For those attending the Sweet and Snacks Expo May 20-22 in Chicago, Coconut Caramacs, along with the brand's long list of best-sellers, will be available to sample at booth #523.

Hawaiian Host chocolate covered macadamias start with premium macadamias that are hand-selected, dry roasted and vacuum sealed to ensure freshness. The signature candy, first produced in 1927, combines macadamias with a special blend of super-premium chocolate to create its classic taste. Additional specialty items feature white and dark chocolate along with gourmet ingredients including toffee, caramel, honey and more.
