Bring Home “Aloha” One Individually Wrapped Cookie at a Time

Posted in: Editor's Blog, Food & Drink, Shopping

Even before the world adapted to a new “normal,” Honolulu Cookie Company was individually wrapping each one of their iconic pineapple shaped cookies.

Honolulu Cookie Company started in 1998 when entrepreneurs Keith and Janet Sung developed a recipe for premium shortbread cookies. As an artist, Keith wanted to develop something unique – a cookie that represented true Hawaiian hospitality. What he created was a line of island-inspired flavors in a signature pineapple shape. The recipe has been refined over the years, but always carries through that dedication to quality ingredients inspired by the flavors of our island home.  

From a single bakery, stores opened throughout Honolulu, particularly in Waikiki, to ensure the hospitality that inspired Sung’s cookies was delivered to visitors from around the world.

“One outcome of the travel shutdown in Hawaii was that we increased our online sales,” says General Manager Ryan Sung. “We were pleased to spread the spirit of ‘aloha’ at a time when people needed it most."

The Pineapple Shape

Pineapples are the international symbol of hospitality. In fact, Honolulu Cookie Company’s iconic cookie shape was originally chosen for this reason. The cookies are designed to be given as gifts, a way to celebrate a meeting of old friends or new acquaintances by sharing something sweet.

“We see ourselves as hosts who strive to share Aloha by making all of our guests feel welcome,” says Sung. “With each pineapple-shaped cookie, we want to invoke a pleasant memory or experience reminiscent of our home in beautiful Hawaii.”  

Bringing Home the Sweetness of Hawaii

Honolulu Cookie Company’s bakers follow a strict recipe of only the finest ingredients to create premium, Hawaii-inspired shortbread cookies. Each cookie is individually wrapped and packed by hand in their unique signature packaging. 

“What better way to share the sweetness of a Hawaiian vacation than to bring home premium shortbread cookies inspired by the islands?” asks Sung.
