Da Kine Hawaiian Snack

Pretty soon, My Beloved and I are headed to Hawaii to visit our ohana (family) there - we can't wait!

Apparently, the Hawaii contingent is excited, too, because last week
in the mail we got drawings from the children, welcoming notes from the parents and this package of da kine snacks from Hawaii.

I remember Li Hing Mui from my childhood in Hawaii but this is a new wrinkle on that old game. Japanese pretzel-type snacks with Chinese flavorings and a Hawaiian poi pounder on the label - nothing could say "Hawaii" to me more except maybe getting the "shaka" greeting from a friend.

Can't wait to have a malasada from one of those beach trucks, to enjoy mahimahi fresh from my brother's fishing catch, to taste pineapple still warm from the field, to eat Maui onions as a local delicacy and to drink a cup of Lion brand coffee as we walk down Kailua beach at sunrise.

Hawaii no ka oi!

Oh my "to taste pineapple still warm from the field" I'm oozing jealousy, just oozing it.

Sara, I couldn't begin to describe the beauty and the marvelous people - you'll just have to go yourself.

Cookiecrumb, we LOVE Iz. So sad, so beautiful.

Evlmprs, wish you could come with - if you want me to take anything to your sister, let me know.

Morgan, Oz is not far from Paradise - you and Mr. Brown should go!

Melissa, I will definitely have one in your honor - and maybe a couple of others, just for me!
