Having grown up on Hawaii’s Big Island, Lance Duyao knows a thing or two about this magical place. And as a creative mind behind Big Island Candies, he’s recognized in Hawaii as a true arbiter of style. Lance is our go-to for beautiful boxes and ribbons for all kinds of gifts and favors, not to mention his passion as a consummate foodie. We couldn’t think of anyone better to ask what makes the Big Island so special. Here’s Lance’s shortlist of things to do and see on your next visit.
If you’ve never tried Big Island Candies’ famous chocolate-dipped shortbread cookies, you haven’t lived! Perhaps a slight exaggeration, but you get the point. And the taste is only matched by the fabulous packaging. Since Lance is a humble guy, we’ll add them to the list. Thanks, Lance! xo ~robyn
