Is the consistency of your Macadamia Honey Butter like Peanut Butter or Nutella?
Not really. Most of us grew up eating peanut butter, so we may think that all nut butters have the same consistency/texture. Since various nuts have different amounts of oil, the texture varies. Our macadamia nut honey butter is more like a thick, delicious paste. It is not as easily spreadable as peanut butter or Nutella. Because we limit our ingredients to just macadamia nuts and raw honey, the texture is nutty and just the right amount of sweet. It is delicious and nutritious. If you wish to make it more spreadable, microwave on low for 10 to 15 seconds. Don’t use high heat as it could destroy the powerful nutrients in raw honey. Our Macadamia Nut Honey Butters have no added sugars, salt, oils, lecithin, preservatives etc. Serve with fruit, pretzel sticks, bread, yogurt, etc. See our easy Recipes/Serving Ideas section.
How long after I place my order will I receive my item in the mail?
In general, orders are shipped 1 to 3 days after the order is placed, and delivery typically takes 1 to 2 days to Hawaii neighbor islands, and 5 to 7 days to mainland locations. If you’re on Oahu, we’ll contact you when your macnut honey butter is ready for pick up. If you’re in Kailua, we offer free delivery!
After I open my jar of Macadamia Nut Honey Butter, Festive Walnut Honey or Perfectly Pecan Honey Butter how should I store it?
You can store your jar of macadamia nut honey butter in a cool, dry place in your pantry for up to 7 days. Make sure the lid is on tight and keep out of direct sunlight. When stored in the pantry, finish it within a week. (This is never a problem in our house!) If you need to keep it longer, refrigerate it. Like most foods, the refrigerator can dry out and harden nut butters. Let it return to room temperature before eating it. You can also warm it on low heat in the microwave for 10 seconds to soften it to make it spreadable.
Festive Walnut Honey and Perfectly Pecan Honey Butter can be left in the pantry for a few days after opening. After that, it’ll keep for up to a month in the refrigerator. Bring to room temperature before enjoying.
Its best to enjoy your Macnut Honey Butters (as well as the Festive Walnut Honey and Perfectly Pecan Honey Butter) when its fresh. Don’t let them get lost in a cabinet or in your fridge as honey butters do dry out over time.
Is your Macadamia Honey Butter fattening?
If you limit your intake to two teaspoonfuls a day, its not fattening; in fact, it’s good for you! Approximately 1 tablespoon (14 grams) of our macnut honey butter has 80 calories. Macadamia nuts are loaded with healthy fats and raw honey has so many health benefits. It’s a super food!
Is your Macadamia Honey Butter Keto friendly?
That depends on how you define Keto. Our macnut honey butter has 5 grams of carbs per serving (one tablespoon). If you have self control and can stop at a teaspoonful or two, it will not throw you off the Keto train. However, if you’re doing “strict Keto,” our sympathies, as you may want to avoid this deliciousness because it contains raw honey. We may do a strict Keto version in the near future. In the meantime, save your carbs for a little raw honey!

How long does infused honey last?
Our infused honeys (Cacao, Pineapple, Hibiscus, Guava, Haupia Vanilla and Ceylon Cinnamon Honey) can be stored in a cool, dry place in your pantry for up to six months. Remember to stir infused honey before enjoying.
Do I need to store raw honey in the fridge?
No. Store raw honey in a cool, dry, dark place in your pantry such as a cabinet. Keep it away from direct sunlight as heat can destroy nutrients. Raw honey lasts hundreds of years when properly stored!
Help! My raw honey has crystallized. What can I do?
It’s normal for raw honey to crystallize. You can fix it by placing the jar of honey in a pot of warm water, and stirring the honey on low to medium heat until the crystals dissolve.

Why are Macadamia Nut Honey Butters pricey compared to other nut butters?
Macadamia nuts are the most expensive nuts and we only use top quality, local ingredients if available on island. We don’t dilute our Hawaiian Macadamia Nut Honey Butters with other less expensive nuts such as peanuts as many other companies do to keep costs down. We also use only the best raw Hawaiian honey. We get our macadamia nuts from the Big Island; the vanilla beans are grown on a small family farm on Oahu and we use 100% Kona Coffee beans from the Big Island of Hawaii. After turmeric, vanilla is the second most expensive spice in the world. We keep our ingredients pure, raw, clean and as local as possible. Inquire about our kama’aina and military discounts.
