It’s Souvenir Sunday, a day to take a look at unique, locally-themed gifts you can buy when you’re stuck at the airport.
This week’s treats: Coconut Pineapple and Guava Bread from Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport.
The breads, now on sale in some shops at the airport, started as a treat baked up by HMSHost and offered in employee cafe.
Pilots and flights crews began snapping up loaves to take to the mainland and eventually HMSHost – which operates many shops at HNL and other airports about the country – decided to make the bread available to travelers as well.
Now Makai Plantation and The Local in the Garden View Food Court (C-Gates area) sell the homemade Coconut Pineapple and Guava Breads.
Other treats to find a HNL airport include fresh flower leis, hula girl ornaments, Spam-flavored macadamia nuts, and ukeleles.
Leis are everywhere at the airport. Even on the sign for the women’s restrooms.
Help out with Souvenir Sunday.
