Calling All Cigar Aficionados - J.C. Newman & Arturo Fuente Cigar Smoker
We invite you to join us on Friday, May 30th at the Hawaii Prince Hotel for the J.C. Newman & Arturo Fuente Cigar Smoker!
Our special guest Rick Zunt is the regional representative for J.C. Newman and Arturo Fuente Cigars.
J.C. Newman Cigar Company’s history can be traced to 1895 when Julius Caesar Newman rolled his first cigars in the family barn in Cleveland Ohio. From these humble beginnings, the company now has a world class reputation for producing super-premium and premium cigars. J.C. Newmans cigars are sold in over 80 countries around the world. Its brands include Diamond Crown, Diamond Crown Maximus, and Diamond Crown Julius Caesar, all of them made by Arturo Fuente, as well as Cuesta Rey and La Unica. J.C. Newman is also the distributor for Arturo Fuente cigars.
Arturo Fuente needs no introduction. The brand was born in 1912 in West Tampa, Florida and has grown to one of the most famous in the world. With its Hemmingway series, Chateau series, Don Carlos line and Fuente Fuente Opus X, the company has developed a massive following among cigar aficionados.
Each $79 event ticket offers 5 cigars (including Diamond Crown Maximus, A Fuente Hemmingway, Cuesta Rey and more), dinner, and a selection of premium spirits and beer, all inclusive. Our guest bartender, Kyle Reutner of The Pig & The Lady, will be serving 4 specialty cocktails created just for this event!

Ireland and Hawaii are over 7,000 miles away from each other, but based on the celebration of St. Patrick's Day on the islands, you would think they were much closer. It's always a special celebration for our team here at Foodland, considering our Irish roots with our founder Maurice "Sully" Sullivan.
We set out on our latest trip to California wine country with one goal in mind: find a new, outstanding, but very affordable wine that our customers will not only enjoy, but LOVE. The trip took us through the famous wine regions of Napa, Sonoma, and Central California, where we explored a variety of vineyards from the well-known and established to smaller, less recognizable, family-run operations.
The New Year is just around the corner and here are some helpful tips to ring in the New Year with nice glass of bubbly Champagne!
Pouring sparkling wine doesn't have to be complicated. First off, the best thing you can do for your bubbly is to keep it extremely cold. The colder it is, the more you are preserving the bubbles and the less messy it will be to open and pour.
Have you tried Wines that Rock? We introduced these wines at our Princeville location about three months ago, and as soon as we put them on the shelves, customers were picking up the bottles and even taking pictures with their favorite iconic rock albums featured on the labels.
We had heard the buzz about Skinnygirl® Margaritas a while back and several of our customers were even asking us about when we were going to start carrying this hot new low calorie ready to serve cocktail at Foodland.

All of us foodies that watch every Chef and Food show on the Food Network could not help but notice the new wine being talked about on the Food Network. Wente Winery and the Food Network have partnered together to craft a new wine called ENTWINE wine. The goal was to offer everyday wine for everyday people to enjoy with everyday food. No foo-foo fancy foods, and no wines that you need a second mortgage to purchase.
As I pour my can of Guinness Draught into a tulip shaped glass I watch that authentic surging and cascading of “tiny bubbles” in the glass and wait patiently for my first sip, the same way I have to wait when a bartender pulls a Guinness from the tap. The unique can utilizes a built in ‘widget’ which provides the right mix of nitrogen and carbon dioxide and helps create the perfect creamy head.
Sure enough, if I close my eyes as I take a sip, I feel like I’m at my favorite pub in ... more »
