Sueoka’s Store and Snack Shop

November 1st, 2012 · 2 Comments

For some reason I never visited Sueoka’s Store and Snack Shop in Koloa town, so I decided to stop in while I was walking around the area.

I was so glad I finally stopped in! There were so many cool and different things to look at in the store! I didn’t really buy much, but had a fun time looking around.

The snack shop is actually a window outside of the store. I didn’t really check it out, but I heard they have really cheap plate lunches and teri burgers.

Inside, the store itself is a bit dated, but clean. The aisles are pretty tight and jammed with both things you’d find on the mainland and things very unique to the Hawaiian market. Those, of course, were the most interesting to me.

In addition to the boxed and canned stuff, there’s fresh produce, seafood and meat.

Now I just have a whole slew of photos of interesting things I saw! Papa’a = “cooked crisp”, so I guess papa’a chips are crisp chips! From Taro Ko Farm.

More chips from Taro Ko Farm.

Great selection of Hawaiian books sprinkled around the store.

There was a large selection of Hawaiian liquor. Here’s Keoki’s Kona Coffee Liqueur and Maui Okolehao. Okolehao is derived from the ti plant.

Old Lahaina Rum from Maui.

Ocean Vodka and Hawaiian Vodka.

Hawaiian Popcorn.

Rice! Lots of rice!

Laura’s Otap is Filipino puff pastry.

Shoyu. Lots of shoyu!

Umeboshi = pickled plums.

Mama Sita’s is a Filipino line of sauces and mixes.

Noodles. Lots of noodles!

Tapioca pearls.

Bee-Ann’s Fish Crackers, another product of the Philippines.

Maui white cane sugar.

Aloha Sunset pancake mixes. We’ve gotten some teas they make, but never the pancake mixes.

Cones for Sushi, cone sushi.

Ono Ono Luau Leaves for laulau or squid luau!


Super random assortment of non-food items. I bought a couple of the Japanese Salux wash cloths for Dallas. He uses them every day. I have one in my shower I use sometimes too.

Fresh ahi.

Kauai Grown pork belly.

Boy Bawang chips are from the Philippines. Lechon Manok is Filipino roast chicken, so I guess the chips on the left are chicken flavored!

Ding Dong Snack Mix is a mixture of “greaseless peanuts, corn bits, U.S.-grade green peas, corn chips and curls.” Another chip from the Philippines!

A selection of teas from The Hawaiian Tea Company from Maui.

A selection of teas from The Pacific Place Tea Garden in Honolulu.

Lots of produce!

Pineapples, of course!

Half and aisle of canned meats.

Hawaiian Sun guava jelly and jam. Classic!

Assam Milk Tea is from the Philippines.

Crack seed!

Kauai Kookie, a favorite!

Hawaiian Springs Water.

Hawaiian Sun tropical drinks.

Aunty Lilikoi is also a favorite from Waimea. Looks like they got a web site revamp and a label revamp.

Marlin Fish Jerky from Kona.

Salty Wahine spices are made in Waimea. I didn’t buy any this time, but I have in the past.

Fresh leis!

Fresh orchids.

Just cut the cake, Danny!

Last year, while everyone was still in town visiting for Christmas, Dallas’s family in the suburbs threw me a bridal shower. This year right after Christmas they threw Caroline and Danny a baby shower. Caroline is expecting a baby boy in the beginning of February.

I bought the baby his first Packers outfit, which Caroline loved and Danny hated! It was a onesie, hat, bib and a Packers 101 board book. Caroline was holding the hat up and was like “oh look, he could wear this home from the hospital!” and I said, “yes, it will be right after the Packers win the Superbowl!” Danny was not amused.

Goodbye Cory & Chris

October 10th, 2011 · 1 Comment

The truck was just a little bit gigantic!

Cory, Chris & Aunty Laura strategizing.

Doug played a lot of box Tetris inside the truck. Danny did a lot of heavy lifting.

Brad, Danny, Doug, Chris, Uncle BB, Kevin, Aunty Gail, Eddy, Bonnie

Tommy and Kenji had a ball running up and down the ramp. Look at mean Uncle Danny, though. He made them stop.

Meanwhile their brother Eddy chilled out with their grandma in the middle of the chaos.

Steve, Kevin, Doug, Chris, Danny, Uncle BB, Jeremy

Full truck. Time to make some tough decisions about what goes, what stays! Doug, Kevin, Chris, Steve

Eddy was born in January, Tyler in August. So much bigger than even a month ago!

Cory & Me. Some family members wouldn’t talk to me with that shirt on, but the game was that night!

On Sunday Cory and Chris had a Load The Truck/Moving party. Chris got a job in Vail, CO and actually left more than a month ago to work there. In the meantime, Cory packed up all their things. Chris came back this weekend to get her and all their stuff. They rented a truck and are driving out to Vail with their dog, Zoe.

I arrived to the party about an hour late and thought I would have missed a big chunk of the loading, but the truck wasn’t even there yet! And there were only about 8 people and 3 of them were pregnant (Caroline, Toni, Chris’s sister)! There was so much stuff, I thought we would be there all night. Slowly people showed up, all hoping they’d missed the bulk, but they did not! Aunty Laura said that is how the family works, but reminded me that Cory is a part of the family too and she knows that about everyone! haha. It turned out that everyone did their fair share of heavy lifting… well, except the pregnant girls, babies, and older aunties.

Dallas was on a flight to South Carolina for work, so I was there on my own and was willing to do whatever I needed to. Cory helped us when we moved to Roscoe Village and she and Chris have helped us with other things on numerous occasions, so we owed them that. Luckily it went pretty fast once we got going. I don’t think everything made it into the truck, though. I was sort of hoping the bike roof rack wouldn’t make it or this cool trunk they have wouldn’t and I’d be forced to take it for…. safe keeping.. but alas, those things fit in. They’ll be towing a car on the back of the truck, so hopefully they can fit some things in there too.

After the moving was done, we all had dinner. Aunty Laura made a whole spread of her famous flank steak, chili, salad, mac n cheese, cone sushi, char sui, and all sorts of things. Naoko made an Italian cream cake and like always, it was delicious!

Good luck, Chris and Cory! You guys will be missed!
