Two things need to be talked about in this post.
It also doesn’t help when you Google best eats in Hilo, and a sushi place has all these rave reviews that start to blur together and read, “Eat here tonight. Drive faster.” So we did. (But only the ‘eat here’ part. Cody is very law-abiding when he drives, you know?)
(I chose this picture from the Interwebs because the photoshop job is suberb. IT’S LIKE THE CHIPS ARE REALLY BY THE OCEAN.)
Sweet Maui Onion Chips. That’s the name of the flavor but maybe also what I muttered when I first tasted them outside the friendly market on Moloka’i. Sweet, sweet Maui Onion. I’m embarrassed to say we ate a bag of these almost (wait for it…) EVERY DAY. :/ It started as a joke but then became an addiction. We easily spent a fourth of our food budget on ONLY these chips. Do you understand me?
And let me let you in on another secret. Purely science. I THINK they must be diet chips because somehow, in all our gorging, we LOST weight. What I’m saying is, it’s like vegetables in a bag and you have to buy them. :/
The plot twist: We raved and raved about them and smuggled two bags home in our luggage, only to find them at Fresh Market in KAYSVILLE, UTAH, priced at two for four dollars (the price of one bag in Hawaii). Hahahaha. WHOOPS.
