TO ALL YOU SNACK LOVERS OUT THERE!
If you're looking for a place to find LOCAL snacks, LOCAL cookies, and flavors from around the island chain.. stop in at "ALOHA COOKIE CONNECTION" at the Ka Makana Ali'i Shopping Center in Kapolei.
I had a moment to speak with TESS STIMSON (Co-Owner of the Aloha Cookie Connection). She is a super sweet small business owner and very customer focused! She proudly spoke of the variety of different small businesses within her store and helped me to find what I was looking for.
The store is packed with a variety of small business creations ranging from cookies to chex mix to chocolates to popcorn and so much more!
I went in with a craving for something and totally changed my mind and went a different direction to grab another type of snack! Everyone says, "don't go in hungry.." But, even after eating lunch, just walking into this store, I started having dessert fantasies and cookie dreams!
Although these are just a few of the bundles of vendors positioned at this cookie haven, Tess tells me that they are always looking for more. Many businesses in the Aloha Cookie Connection are from the outer islands. As residents of Oahu, we sometimes can't get the snacks from Maui, Kauai, or the Big Island until we actually take a trip there. Now, we can save on airfare and rental cars by just stopping over to Kapolei to find our outer island favorites!
Do you have a favorite snack/treat from the outer island that you'd love to see here on Oahu? Be sure to send TESS and TROY STIMSON a message at firstname.lastname@example.org .
