Snacks From Hawaii

Published in: Daily Photo

I got the nicest surprise in the mail yesterday — a care package filled with local Hawaii snacks from my friend Fern on Oahu.


She sent quite a few of my favorites, like Passion Orange Drink Mix (YUM), Coconut Pudding Haupia (it’s kind of like coconut Jell-O), Red Coconut Balls and Mauna Loa Macadamia Nuts, and some things I’ve never tried before, which I’m super stoked about. Seriously, I can’t wait to get those Hawaiian Sun Pancake Mixes (Lilikoi Passion Fruit, Pineapple Coconut and Chocolate Macadamia Nut) into my tum! I’m going through a breakfast-for-every-meal-of-the-day phase, and these should totally hit the spot.

There are some non-food-related things in there, too, like yummy-smelling soaps and lotions, a sweet card, a magazine, lip balm, and some drops to keep in the potty for those, um…less-than-fragrant moments when you’re on the throne (it happens to us all). 🙂

THANK YOU, FERN! This was very sweet of you. You made my week.

    Lilikoi Passion Fruit!!!! Those pancakes would be the first thing I tried. Oh man, I love Lilikoi! There used to be a bakery on the road leading to Kilauea Lighthouse on Kauai that made a Lilikoi cake. Yum!!!
    Let us know how the soaps from Kula Herbs are.

    Ohh this makes me want to re-visit Hawaii so much! I went several years ago, for about 4 days at the end of a long trip, and I was ill the whole time. 😔

    One day I’ll go back and spend a couple of weeks exploring everywhere!

  8. These packages are great, especially when they come as a surprise.

    Oh my gosh, it all looks so yummy! 🙂 Anything with macadamia nuts is a favorite of mine, and that coconut pudding sounds ahhmazing! While I do live in SoCal, maybe it’s time I go West to take a vacation. My last three have been on the East Coast, yet I’ve never been to Hawaii… 🙁

    Hawaii is the most beautiful place I’ve ever visited. I haven’t been in years. I really want to take my son there.

    That shot of the macadamia nut package gave me a flashback to my childhood. When I was a girl, my grandma went to Hawaii for a convention and someone she was doing business with sent her like a few big cases of macadamia nuts. they were so good but that was like my mother’s answer when I wanted a snack for like a year. And now, I can’t even stand the smell of them. 🙂
