big island bee & la tour bakehouse

As I was trying to figure out what to bring back as omiyage, I came across these cute packages of honey.

There are 8 sticks in each package and are sold for about $3 (plus tax, prices vary at different stores) each.

8 = hachi (ha-chee) in Japanese which is also the same pronunciation for bee...I'm not sure they intended to make that connection but I thought it was cute...

another item I picked up for friends is the Furikake Puffs by La Tour Bakehouse, which are sold at all La Tour Cafes.

These are $3.50 (plus tax) and would recommend picking these up at the main location in Iwilei--they have the most inventory, though the parking lot is kind of a pain to get in and out of.

I hope the friends I give these to will enjoy them.

Ooooo, great ideas! I was trying to rack my brains thinking of omiyage for the seminar staff in Oct. Thanks!

I think the honey is nice because it is small and easy to pack, V. I hope those puffs are good, I was hoping to sample at the store, but they didn't have any at that time :(

Take care and look forward to seeing you in October!
