Happy Thanksgiving from Hawaii Island Gourmet

Aloha Gift Basket Starting tomorrow, the Holiday Season is officially here.

We wish you a Happy Thanksgiving.

While you begin your Holiday shopping, we ask that you please consider your local community and stores.

Our products and gift baskets are made by local members of the community using as many local products as possible. Our taro chips and sweet potato chips are made using Hawaii grown taro and sweet potatoes from local farmers.

Each dollar spent with us is supporting not only the artists who handcraft our cookies, candies, chips and gift baskets, but also the local companies and farmers who supply the materials.

Thank you for all of your support. We look forward to celebrating the holidays with you!

Milk Chocolate or Dark Chocolate

The holidays are almost here. Can you believe Thanksgiving is this Thursday? With the holidays comes lots of great food. Roasted turkeys and hams, stuffing, pies and don’t forget the sweets.

Candies in all kinds of shapes and flavors.

Whether you prefer dark, milk or white chocolate, we’ve got you covered. Our original handcrafted Atebara Crunch is available no matter what kind of chocolate you prefer.

Atebara Crunch Milk Chocolate in tray

Our Milk Chocolate and Dark Chocolate Crunch are made from high quality, gourmet chocolate mixed with pieces of our famous Atebara Potato Chips, the first and original chip in Hawaii (since 1936), and Hamakua Macadamia Nuts.

Our Purple Sweet Potato Crunch is creamy, gourmet white chocolate mixed with pieces of our Hawaii grown and made Hawaii Island Sweet Potato Chips.

Assorted Crunches

Some people prefer dark for its slightly more bitter taste and its associated health benefits (you can find more about the health benefits of dark chocolate here). Some prefer milk for it’s sweeter taste, and some prefer white for it’s combination of sweet and creamy.

So when it comes to choosing your holiday sweets, there is only one thing left to decide. Do you prefer milk, dark or white chocolate?

You can also find our Atebara Crunch Chocolates in our Holiday Gift Baskets.
