Newest Addition - Musubi Bag
Aloha! Please join me in welcoming the new reusable Musubi bag!
This new addition joins the ranks of Foodland’s reusable bags as possibly the cutest one yet! The idea behind the design was basically, “What makes Hawaii people happy?” The answer was clear: spam musubi, duh!
This design takes me back to the days when I sat in math class, doodling in my notebook—I-I mean, diligently taking notes in my notebook. *cough cough* The big musubi on the front and back of the bag is laid out like a diagram, with dimensions, ingredients, instructions for making it—really, anything you could want to know about making a spam musubi. It’s like a how-to guide for beginners.
Around the bag are scattered various other musubi incarnations, some well-known and some a little less than common, including the “low-carb musubi” (a piece of spam wrapped with an extra-skinny strip of nori) and the “BAMBUCHA musubi,” which is too big to fit on the bag.
Also, I LOVE the bright turquoise color. It reminds me of the ocean on a sunny day, making it perfect for summer picnics and beach days. (It’s also great for any other season here in Hawaii, since bright colors are always in season here!)
It’s so important to protect our beautiful islands, and you can help by using reusable bags when you shop. FYI, for every reusable bag you use at checkout at Foodland, you get 5¢ back! Plus, you’ll receive a stamp card that’s redeemable for a free bag of Back to Nature Nuts! Do you have any other sustainable tips to share? I’d love to hear them!

Have you ever been so busy that you missed a meal because you didn’t have the time to eat? Surely it happens to all of us occasionally, but once we realize it, we hardly give it a second thought because we know we can eat almost whenever we please - some families in our communities don't always have that luxury.
We are truly amazed by the generosity of our customers. Despite tough economic conditions for many, our customers always rally for a good cause, and especially when it comes to caring for the extended family of island residents.
