We are so excited about our new partnership with Shane Victorino and excited to announce the winner of our Flyin’ Hawaiian Poke. Without further waiting…the winner is HOME PLATE!
We wanted our customers to be a part of this partnership as well which is why we had you try the “bases” in 14 of our stores and then come online and vote for your favorite. We had over 4,600+ votes for the different bases and home plate is the big winner. This is the flavor that has great crunch with ... more »
Many customers have reached out to us with questions about green onions in our Foodland stores and we wanted to let all of our customers know that the recent cease of sales from Wong Hon Hin farms does not impact any products we carry.
The Department of Health required Wong Hon Hin Farms in Waianae to destroy and dispose of approximately 800 pounds of fresh Green Onions today due to presence of an unapproved pesticide found on the product. While we do buy product from Wong Hon Hin ... more »
The first annual Hawai`i Food & Wine Festival kicks off this Thursday evening. The three-day event in Honolulu will showcase dishes using the state’s bounty of local produce, seafood, beef and poultry prepared by a roster of internationally renowned master chefs.

I like to do the Master Cleanse a couple of times a year to help regulate my system and get rid of accumulated toxins. For those of you who have never done it, you basically don’t eat any food for 10 days and live on a concoction of lemon juice, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper. It’s an amazing experience to go through and I always come out of it with an increased appreciation of food!
I was on day 5 of the cleanse when Josh and Joe from more »
With Give Aloha, Foodland's Annual Community Matching Gifts Program, in full swing and running through the end of September, I've heard that inquiring minds want to know who to give to. Indeed, with over 500 participating non-profits -- who all do great work for our community to choose from, deciding who to support can be a daunting task. So here are a few tips to think about...
Well, it's that time to challenge ourselves to eating 100% local again! I don't know about you, but I found the 2010 Kanu Hawaii Eat Local Challenge to be fun and really enlightening. As you may recall, last year I wrote recipes that were mostly local, but this year, I thought that some of you may want to step it up a notch and decide to go 100% local.
This week I am thrilled to introduce locally grown and assembled Living Garden Succulent Plants. These hardy beauties come to us from the creativity of Terri and Greg Lee who are the owners and designers of 1st Look Exteriors.
Each of the Living Garden Succulent Plants were assembled by hand by Terri and Greg themselves. It amazes me the care, attention and pride that Terri and Greg put into each and every one of these creations.
Back in June, I introduced the locally grown Hamakua Mushrooms. You learned a little about the farm and the different mushrooms that are grown by Hamakua Mushrooms. We ran it on special so I’m sure a lot of you got to taste how delicious they are!
Even though I told you they are grown here in Hawaii (the packaging notates this too,) I feel there are still some of who can’t believe they are grown in Hawaii! So, I went to ... more »
Last week, I had the pleasure of visiting Susie Weaver at Kona Dragonfruit Farm on the Big Island. Let me tell you, I have a whole new appreciation for this unique fruit. Dragonfruit is not easy to grow and requires a lot of meticulous attention. Due to this year's rainy and wet weather, this season's crop was very limited. The few flowers that did grow needed to be hand pollinated at very early in the morning, as this fruit-bearing cactus blooms while it is still dark.
