Natural Holiday Snacking Guide

We have some exciting snacks in store for you this holiday season. I wanted to give you a quick rundown of what goodies you will find at Foodland, available now!

Stacy's Pita Chips, Simply Gingerbread

Seasonal Flavor Clif Bars are Here!

Can’t wait for the Thanksgiving Pumpkin pie?
Got a hankering for some Iced Ginger Bread?
How about working some pre-Christmas Candy Canes into your snacking routine?

The seasonal Clif bars are always a hit and this year they brought back the awesome spiced pumpkin pie. This one is so good that I asked them to make it year round as the flavor is a perfect combination of cinnamon and nutmeg with subtle pumpkin notes.

Halloween Cupcakes & Cookies!

Gnu Flavor and Fiber Bars

We recently launched these at all the Foodland stores. What’s great about the Gnu Foods Flavor and Fiber bars is that you get almost half of your recommended daily fiber intake in one bar, they only have about 130 calories and they taste great.

Banana Walnut and the Orange Cranberry are the two top flavors. They are a baked bar and have a wonderfully fresh feel to them.

Easier-to-feed Organic Baby Food

Organic baby food is a category that continues to post strong year over year growth. Maybe it’s because Mom’s want what is best for their little ones. Maybe it is fears of GMOs. Maybe it’s because the baby food companies are making it so convenient!

We brought in the Plum Organic baby line and it has taken off like a rocket. The squeezy pouches are so easy to use. You simply unscrew the oversized cap (it’s so big ... more »

OnoPops - handmade in Hawaii!

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 »

Living Garden Succulent Plants

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.

Wine Pairings for local favorites!

As the Prince of Pau Hana, I often get asked, "What wine can we serve with our favorite local foods like Poke, Sushi, Huli Huli chicken, Thai, or Chinese?

If there was a wine made for our tropical climate and Hawaiian regional cuisine, it would be the food-friendly Gewurztraminers and Reislings.

Today’s Gewurtraminers and Reislings are not the sweet German wines that many of us recall from our wine entry days (Blue Nun, Black Tower, Havemeyer). Today, the ... more »

Local Kona Dragonfruit Farm Visit

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.
