Taste-Testing Hawaiian Food

Did I mention that Cari and I are going to Hawaii later this year? It’s true. We’re celebrating our 20th anniversary this year and decided Hawaii’s the place to celebrate.

And ever since we booked our trip, I keep suddenly noticing Hawaiian things — stuff that was probably always there, but just never mattered before. Like at the grocery store.

I did the shopping a couple weekends ago and suddenly started noticing Hawaiian food on the shelves.



I couldn’t convince Cari to try the Hawaiian BBQ sauce, but I can tell you unequivocally that the Hawaiian potato chips — the “Sweet Maui Onion” flavor on the right — are really good.

We’ve already been told about a Hawaiian bakery that makes amazing donuts, but we’ll have to wait until the trip to sample those.

    You will LOVE the portugese donuts — they are called Malasadas – you can get them at Leonard’s bakery – oh – and the pineapple beats anything you can buy here — and take plenty of money with you because everything is expensive! Otherwise, have a great time – Hawaii is awesome. If you’re going to Oahu make sure to visit Kualoa Ranch – they do tours there – you get to see where Lost was filmed as well as Jurassic Park and many many other well known television shows..

    Did you try any new food on this trip or was it Olive Garden and Outback the whole time? 😀

    Hahaha … you are SO funny, Mr. Mihm. Don’t even get me started on the amazing burgers at the Cool Cat Cafe in Lahaina. To. Die. For.

    Misty – we never got a chance to try the Portuguese donuts. But that’s a good excuse to go back again, I’d say. 🙂
