kamehameha bakery

DSC01580 I had seen many people posting about this bakery, Kamehameha Bakery.

Their trending item is their poi glazed doughnuts (the black-ish looking orbs).

We tried getting our hands on these a couple of times, but they were always sold out.

DSC01581 You know why? They open at 2 a.m.! So, of course when you go at 10 a.m. they are sold out of these babies.

On Saturday, luck was with us, we were early, and even though there was a line out the door, it moved fast.

We purchased 6 poi glazed, 2 very large ensemada, 1 long john and 1 glazed. $9-something, which isn't too bad considering the ensemada is the size of someone's face!

No poi taste, and the bright purple will shock you, but the poi glazed are good and soft.

DSC01582 The glazed was good also, nice and soft like Krispy Kreme only better.

Mom enjoyed the ensemada and long john. The long john cream tasted a little like haupia.

We'll be back!

As always enjoying your posts Kat.

Those donuts look really interesting.

I've never had a black and purple donut. I'm intrigued!

I've found a place with good old fashioned donuts with cream and jam for my next trip back home. No purple ones though:)

Wishing you and yours well.

You are back in Hawaii! Whoo hoo! What a nice time to be in Hawaii... I dream of going there often, but we never got out of here. Donuts look delicious! I have been on diet (sort of) and totally miss eating lots of sugary stuff.

K and S said...

yes I've been here since June, Nami :) I need to go on a diet too.

Take care.

Purple and black in a donut. I know I would love to try that one. I wonder if they use fresh or dried poi.

K and S said...

I was thinking they fry up their taro rolls for this Rowena :)

Take care.
