All of us here at Foodland were thrilled to learn that we were voted “best grocery store” by readers of Honolulu Magazine. What a tremendous honor this is – especially during a year in which we were faced not only with having to close our Hawaii Kai store after nearly 50 years, but also with mass merchants like WalMart and Target selling more food and our competitors opening new stores right near ours. We know that you have more choices than ever of where you do your grocery shopping, ... more »

You may also notice that the seed cavity is much smaller than a normal cantaloupe and that the sweet juicy fruit extends all the way to the rind. In addition to the traditional nutritional benefits that a cantaloupe typically offers, the ... more »
Here’s a little help with one of your New Year’s resolutions…Think Thin Bars.
I love these bars. 20 gram of protein and no sugar. They call them “portable nutrition" and I call them delicious. These are a great one to pack in your bag and filling enough to help tide you over to a meal.

When our annual Share a Holiday Feast program launched on November 1st, we wondered how well we’d do this year, considering Hawaii’s struggling economy. We could only hope we would raise as much we did as last year ($96,226.17) to help those in need enjoy a holiday meal with their families. We shouldn’t have been surprised when the final donations were calculated – after all, people in Hawaii have always been more than generous for good ... more »
