Kukui Nut Leis

Home9Blog9Kukui Nut Leis

If there is one Hawaiian accessory that has prevailed over time, the Kukui Nut Lei takes the crown. Originally worn by the islands’ ali‘i (Hawaiian for “chiefs,”) Kukui Nuts Leis are now a popular item for folks of all social classes.

Kukui Nuts come from the Kukui tree, the official state tree for Hawaii. Kukui trees grow easily all around the islands, and each part of the tree has been put to good use throughout history. Its wood has been constructed into outrigger canoes, its oils have been incorporated into health and beauty products to help heal the body, and of course, its nuts have been artfully strung into leis.

St. Nick’s Snack Picks!

Home9Blog9St. Nick’s Snack Picks!

Christmas is still a few weeks away, but many families get an early visit from St. Nick on December 6th. Youngsters hang stockings or put out shoes the evening before St. Nick’s day and wake up to find small trinkets, snacks and other gifts in their footwear. LeiHut loves all things holiday, especially if we can put a little Hawaiian twist on the tradition. Here are our top St. Nick’s holiday picks:

Mixed Mochi Balls: These colorful, crunchy, bite-sized snacks are as delicious as they are fun to eat. Mixed mochi balls come in a variety of bright colors and almost look like ornaments you could hang on the Christmas tree. These light and airy nuggets make a great snack on their own, or can a fun addition to other salty munchies like pretzels, popcorn, or other arare.

Sweet Coconut

Sweet Coconut: Give them a sweet treat as white as Christmas morning snow. Dried coconut pieces have a chewy texture and are chock-full of island coconut flavor. Try adding pieces to trail mix or into your favorite dessert recipes for a truly tropical taste. You can also create an edible winter wonderland by incorporating coconut into your gingerbread house decorations!

Tropical Candies: With flavors like pineapple, mango, and coconut, there’s no way you can go wrong with these delectable hard candies. These yummy treats dissolve slowly, allowing you to enjoy the tropical taste sensation. At a time when chocolatey, gooey candies and cookies are in abundance, having a fruity option around is a welcome change.
