On the Coconut Wireless...

In my September 26th post, No Mo Da Kine Haupia? , I reported that Maui's own Roselani Ice Cream had to discontinue their signature flavor due to the loss of their coconut milk supplier.



Roselani has sent me a message on the "coconut wireless" to let me know that a replacement supply of coconut milk has been found and their ono (delicious) Haupia (coconut pudding) flavor is back in the freezer shelves of Hawaiian stores.

So, go check 'em, and enjoy. Don't over do it though. Like my motto says, "Ey, no get nuts!" But if you want to get nuts anyway, try their Classic Macadamia Nut ice cream.

Haupia...
Macadamia...
GAZEBO...?

Seriously, now. You don't happen to know anywhere I can find it in Japan, do you?

Only in Hawaii, Moody, I'm sorry to say. You can try some when you take the Flying Eggheads to perform in Honolulu.

Ice cream that sounds delicious but is unobtainable is the best for us.

Thanks for visiting "Richie".

Have some ice cream and tell the little green fascists not to worry about the elections. As the Germans said in 1982 when they replaced Chancellor Helmut Schmidt with Helmut Kohl, "Ve are just svitching der Helmuts"!

I don't mind coconut ice-cream but I prefer the fresh coconut drink that you drink off the fruit itself plus you can scrap off the flesh too. We get a lot of coconuts here - some chilled ones imported from Thailand.

I almost had to do a blog post about the joy of finding real, live, honest-to-gosh HAUPIA in Manhattan the other day!

Now if somebody would just open a Leonard's branch. mmmmm.

Haupia in Mahattan. Amazing. We didn't have a Leonard's on Maui, but Komoda Bakery in the Upcountry paniolo town of Makawao has lots of goodies.

I practically danced a happy little haupia hula.

Now I should mention that where I found it was the one place in Manhattan where I would have expected to find it - L&L Drive In (ha, that's a misnomer around here, mo' better fo' take da subway, yeah?). Just finding out we had one of those was SO great! They have haupia on the menu, but I think I've gotten there too late before, and all the other haupia-craving displaced Hawaii-raised people in Manhattan have already beat me to it. I was waiting for my plate lunch & glanced over in the refrigerator case where they usually just have the sushi and seaweed salad & there it was! YAY!

The big thing at Leonard's was the fresh malasadas (that's how they spelled it). I think that should be the next big food fad in Manhattan - I think cream pufferies Beard Papa & Choux Factory have sort of had their moment & now it's time for Manhattan Malasada Mania!

Wow, you've got all kinds of local grinds there.

I used to enjoy sata andagi once in a while at the Bon Dances on Maui. It's an Okinawan treat that is like a malasada without the sugar.

Coconut ice creams became popular in recent days. Wholesale coconut suppliers sometimes do produce coconut ice creams as availability of coconuts are always plenty with them.
