The "Made In Hawai'i" Story

It was an ordinary day.  Shopping the shelves of stores in Oahu, Kauai and Maui for gifts for family and friends for the upcoming holidays.  Want to make sure that I get something suitable for everyone as well as pick gifts that are actually made on the islands of Hawaii.  More than once I picked up a gift, turned it over and found it was made in China or the Phillipines.  Quite a few stores did feature shelves marked with "Made In Hawaii" posted on them to make it easier to select local gifts.  I did manage to find the gifts I wanted and have all of them made in Hawaii.  I took a few photos of some of the items that I found were made on the islands to show you the selection of gifts I could find.  It was another extraordinary day in the life of an ordinary guy.  PS - click on photos to enlarge.


Rooster Kookies made by the Kauai Rooster Kookie Company.
Hawaiian Shirts can be found almost anywhere in Hawaii.  Make sure you find one with the Made in Hawaii, USA.  
Maui Style potato chips are fantastic.
Mulvadi Gourmet Pancake Mix in a variety of flavors is made in Hawaii.  Price is listed under the packages.
Made by Alaea Salt Company, these tubes of herbs or spices are a great gift.
Glico Hawaii Pretz packages have flavored pretzels in them. 
Big Island (Hawaii) Delights are chocolate dipped Macadamia Shortbread. 
Packages of made in Hawaii golf balls make a great gift.  They come in a variety of patterns.
Tiki Toes are island style stickers.  
Nutty Farms packages Trail Mix, Fruit chips, nuts and a variety of other good items.
The Aloha made juices are great.  They are made on Honolulu in a variety of  flavors.  My favorite is the Passion Orange.
The Aloha Spice Company packages many spices that are primarily organic.
These tins would be a great souvenir in itself, but it holds cookies made in Hawaii.
