A Sneak Peak

One of the things I love at Foodland is that we really care about the food we sell. We pride ourselves on only selling food that we “would serve our own family and friends” and we really mean it. As a buyer I have to present new product lines to our quality control committee in a monthly meeting. It’s really kind of fun in that it is a show-and-tell format.

Last week I presented a few new lines that I am really excited about. I felt great in that everything passed in the ... more »

It’s updated every Wednesday and has a lot to offer in terms of savings. Another great page that offers savings is our Coupons page provided by Coupons.com. The other day, before I went shopping, I went over to the coupons page just to see what was available with no particular items in mind.

South American Roses

Nestled in the Andes Mountain at an elevation of 8,661 feet above sea level, Bogota is the capital city of Columbia. After La Paz in Bolivia and Quito in Ecuador, Bogota is the third-highest capital city in the world. What does that elevation feel like in Hawaiian terms? Haleakala on Maui reaches an elevation of just over 10,000 feet above sea level at the highest peak. That means Bogota ... more »

Quick Favorites

I know that a lot of people here in Hawaii, like myself, are really active and busy. I don’t know about you guys, but a lot of times I find myself not having much time to eat and always grabbing something on the go. It’s not easy to find food that’s quick, and tasty, but I know that I can always rely on our deli to prepare something that’s delicious and can be eaten without wasting time. Here are just a few of my Foodland Deli favorites:

A Refreshing Riesling

Sweet wine lovers stand up proud and be counted!

The sweeter wine varietals are making a big come back! More and more wine lovers are discovering the fun and joy of the sweeter varietals like Riesling, Gewurtraminer, and Moscato D' Asti.

Do you know the difference between a Male and Female Uhu?

There are a bunch of different types of Uhu (Parrotfish), and they all go through different phases as they mature. During these phases, they change colors and some change from male to female. The only way to identify the sex of an Uhu is identifying the type and color. Almost all parrotfish start out as females in the Initial Phase and change to males in the Terminal Phase. However the Stoplight Parrotfish develop directly into males.

Filet? Ribeye? Strip? T-Bone? What makes them different?

With the launch of our Certified Angus Beef Contest, I thought that it would be a great time to familiarize everyone with a few different cuts of steak. Hopefully, next time you’re at a steakhouse or checking out our meat department this will help you picking out a steak to your liking. Let me know if you’d like to know about any other cuts not mentioned here.

  • Filet Mignon: The most-tender cut of beef, the Filet Mignon has been appearing in restaurants since ... more »

Sweet Gold

If you love pineapple, you have to try the Hawaiian Crown “Sweet Gold” Pineapple available exclusively in our stores. Locally grown in Kunia, this pineapple is sure to be the best you’ve ever tasted.

Check out what food writer Joan Namkoong had to say about it in last week’s Honolulu Star Advertiser: more »

Wine and Cheese?

Just got back from a buying trip with the directors of wine, deli, and R. Field. Was a great trip to Sacramento where we met with over 400 vendors offering cheeses, specialty meats, yogurt, you name it.

We locked onto quite a few great American artisan cheeses, and some really nice French cheeses as well. Keep an eye on R. Field's selection. In short time, they should offer a wider selection of cheeses from France, all flown in.
