This wicked good treat by Kaimana Jerky is made with wild-caught wahoo. And it’s just as nutritious as it is tasty. The jerky contains an impressive amount of minerals, making it a great source of potassium, zinc and iron. Also, the low calorie snack is seasoned with organic ingredients. You can’t beat the delicious combination of sweet, hot and umami flavor in Kaimana Jerky’s spicy chili wahoo. The jerky is proudly made in Hawaiʻi with no artificial preservatives or nitrates.
Historical accounts suggest mangoes first arrived in the Hawaiian Islands before 1825. Today, the fruit thrives with over 500 varieties across the Islands! For locals and visitors, mango season is a highlight of summer, providing a refreshing sweetness to the Hawaiʻi heat. The fruit is widely consumed, either fresh, dried (coated in li-hing powder is a local favorite), pickled or added into chutney and sauces. Mānoa Chocolate incorporates the fruit into its Manakō Mango chocolate bar for a burst of flavor that instantly evokes summer time in Hawaiʻi. And Shar Tuiasoa of Punky Aloha Studio is the talented local artist behind the cover illustration.

Island Harvest’s macadamias are grown using organic farming methods on the slopes of Kohala on Hawaiʻi Island. The island’s rich soil and dedicated farmers bring you these one-of-a-kind sea salt macadamia nuts with aloha!
Maui Crisps makes its jerky with the tastiest ingredients on the island of Maui. Crafted in small batches, Maui Crisps strives to produce only the highest quality pipikaula, Hawaiian-style beef jerky. Once a staple for the 19th century paniolo (cowboys), the name pipikaula translates to “beef rope,” and it’s as popular today as it was back on the open range.
Maui Crisps snacks are a mix of old and new: traditional family recipes merged with lighter, crunchier chips. The result: original jerky unlike any other on the market. Ultra thin slices of high quality beef are marinated in the tastiest family sauces and dried to crispy perfection on the slopes of Haleakalā. Enjoy!
