omiyage

If you travel back and forth to the Islands every year like I do, getting something "original" for omiyage (souvenirs) can sometimes be tough.

This Hershey Kiss has been on the market for about 2 years now, but this was the first time I'd actually found them in the stores (I guess I wasn't looking hard enough).

It is a great item because it is only sold in Hawaii.

I got this at Don Quijote but have also seen it at Target, Longs Drugs and other stores around Hawaii.

Hi Kat,

good to try new things but nothing wrong with the tried and true:)

Guess this means we'll be seeing you soon this side of the sea.

Till then enjoy!

Great choice! I took these back to the mainland for Christmas the last couple of years and they were a big hit. ;-)

IS that the same Don Quijote they have in Japan? I didn't know the store was anywhere outside if Japan. I love that shop.

K and S said...

Yes it is Sarah, though the one in Hawaii is more like a supermarket.

Take care.
