10 Best Hawaiian Snacks

10 Best Hawaiian Snacks

If you don't agree with our picks, please leave us a comment!

    1. Li Hing anything. Seriously, you could put li hing powder on sawdust and I’d probably eat it. We love it on pineapple, oranges, mango, or just about any fruit. And of course, who doesn’t love Li Hing Mui Margaritas!!


      2. Poke. Whether spicy, Hawaiian style, or shoyu flavored - Poke is always a winner.

        3. Chocolate Macadamia Nuts. They’re what all your friends on the mainland want you to bring back.

        4. Hurricane Popcorn. It’s the perfect combination of salt, sweet, and buttery.

        5. Strawberry Mochi. Two Ladies Kitchen in Hilo makes the most ono version we’ve had.

        6. Shave Ice. Whether you get rainbow, lychee, or lilikoi, don’t forgot to top it with Li Hing or condensed milk!

        7. Pickled Mango. If you have an aunty who drops off a jar for you, even better. If not, you can buy it here.

        8. Acai Bowl. Outside of Brazil, Hawaii is the number one consumer of this super fruit. You can even get one in the food court at Costco!

        9. Manapua. It's the Hawaiian version of Char Siu Bao and you can find them at 7-11, Chinatown, or Libbys in Kalihi. There's chicken curry, sweet potato, kahlua pork, Lup Cheong, and even specially decorated ones with cartoon characters on the bun. 


        10. Fish Jerky! Our favorite is the Teri Ahi.

        Grew up and lived in Kaneohe, Hawaii back in the betta days. Now am trying to fine the original white kine Li Hing Mui, on the salty side and Long Drugs had it, plus the seed store had it, but now hard to find da Bumbucha kine Li Hing Mui.
        Order on line, but comes small and too sweet, mo beta da ones you put in half lemon and good for colds and sore throats.
        Am living in upper Michigan, can order on line, but always da wrong kine, but will be back to Hawaii one day and going stock up.
        Mahalo for allowing me to comment.

        I’m a little sad that spam musubi didn’t make the list.

        It’s a tough one, but it’s gotta be Manapua from Char Hung Sut.
