What Makes Hawaiian Cookies Special?

As I’ve gotten older, most of my souvenirs from Hawaii are food souvenirs. Honolulu Cookie Company features some of my favorite Hawaiian cookies. Shortbread cookies are my favorite, and I love how Honolulu Cookie Company puts its own tropical flair into each cookie. I’m partial to the guava, lilikoi, and mango flavors.

What is Honolulu Cookie Company?

Honolulu Cookie Company started in 1998 on Oahu as a shortbread cookie company. Each cookie is shaped like a pineapple, the international symbol of hospitality. How perfect for Hawaii!

Not only are their stores all over Waikiki and Honolulu, but they have expanded to Maui, Las Vegas, and Guam! You can find them at Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, Walt Disney World, and select Bloomingdale’s and Tommy Bahama locations.

Something I learned recently while visiting a Honolulu Cookie Company store in Waikiki is that the ladies in the factory hand-dip their cookies in Guittard chocolate!

Each piece of fruit and coffee bean is hand-placed. It’s not a machine. Touches like this make it feel like a family business I’d like to support.

Waikiki Beach Walk

The newest place to hang out in Oahu is Waikiki Beach Walk. It features one-of-a-kind boutique shops, restaurants, activities and performances. You can learn to play the ukulele here for free! It was an easy walk from our room at the Waikiki Courtyard Marriott and most Waikiki hotels.

Honolulu Cookie Company recently expanded its Waikiki Beach Walk location. It’s now twice the size! That means more products and more space to move around and shop. There was plenty of room for my stroller, and I liked not feeling rushed. Waikiki shops tend to be small, so this felt quite luxurious!

My boys were all about the free samples. There is a whole shelf of miniature cookies for visitors to sample. They were big fans of the chocolate chip macadamia nut.

I spoke with the manager, who told me this location also offers interactive classes. They just had a class where guests could dip their own cookies in chocolate.

Now THAT’S something my family would love to do on vacation! And eat all our mistakes!

Why Do These Hawaiian Cookies Make Great Gifts?

As I mentioned before, the pineapple is an international sign of hospitality. Food gifts are my favorite because they are meant to be enjoyed immediately! So, these gifts are the perfect holiday hostess gift. They also make great housewarming gifts, new baby gifts, and teacher gifts.

My family loves when I bring back these pineapple cookies from the Honolulu Cookie Company.

Because they are individually wrapped, they also make great party favors! These would be perfect for a destination wedding or in a tropical goodie bag. I also like to bring these back to share at work or school.

And if you wanted to be the “cool house,” you could order them as Halloween treats for trick-or-treaters!

The taste of these cookies is only matched by the adorable pineapple shape and everything it represents. I always pick up a few boxes in Hawaii to bring back Hawaiian souvenirs for friends and family. I also like to keep them on hand for last-minute gifts.

How Can I Order These Hawaiian Cookies Online?

YES! I’m so glad I live in an era where you can still get a taste of Hawaii anywhere in the world. You can order your favorite Honolulu Cookie Company products online.

There are several Honolulu Cookie Company stores in Waikiki, Oahu, and Maui.

Honolulu Cookie Company gave me a lovely gift bag full of yummy cookies. I’ve been buying their cookies for years. All opinions are my own.

I want to eat those pineapple-shaped cookie decors on the wall. Hehe. And do you know that there is a Korean drama called Eulachacha Waikiki? They apparently named it after that place in Hawaii.

I really want to go to Hawaii and it was one of the places that we considered last year for our wedding anniversary but it is too expensive. We went to Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia and I enjoyed it but Hawaii looks really cool.

Yes, Hawaii can be really expensive. I had no idea about that Korean drama! Is it set in Hawaii?
