As a young man, Mamoru Takitani had a pioneering spirit and a desire to create
a world-famous candy. Experimenting in his parents’ attic, he and his wife,
Aiko, blended different kinds of chocolates developing a unique recipe. Mamoru
began dipping macadamia nuts into this secret blend creating a sensation on
Maui. Armed with his fabulous recipe, Mamoru moved to Honolulu and purchased
Ellen Dye Candies, a local confectioner since 1927 and renamed the company
Hawaiian Host. Although there were early setbacks, through hard work and
dedication, the Takitanis turned a small candy business into the country’s
largest exporter of chocolate covered macadamias.
