Delectable local treats for every craving

Whether it’s for a birthday, anniversary, special holiday gift or just a gesture of gratitude, Aloha Cookie Connection & Snacks is the perfect one-stop shop to creating one-of-a-kind gift baskets filled with local cookies and snacks perfect for any occasion. Hawaii Now hosts Kanoe Gibson and Jobeth Devera filled their baskets with some of their favorites and even learned how to wrap them up beautifully.

Aloha Cookie Connection & Snacks was founded by owners Troy and Tess Stinson in November 2017. With a dream to open a local shop with a selection of the best local snacks in their neighborhood, Troy and Tess tested the waters with a small kiosk at Ka Makana Ali’i. A few months later, Aloha Cookie Connection & Snacks opened its storefront.

What feels like a craft fair for snacks in one location, Aloha Cookie Connection & Snacks takes pride in offering both well-known Hawaiian brands as well as homemade confections from smaller companies. Whether you are a sweet tooth or prefer savory snacks, there is a variety of treats that will satisfy every craving. From sweet and chewy to salty and brittle, the shop is full of cookies, brownies, popcorn, jerky and more! There is a delectable treat for every person young or old. Some of its offerings include Big Island Delights, Maui Sweets, Kauai Cookie, Hawaiian Chip Company, Manny’s Munchies, Primo Popcorn, and Aloha Jerkyz.

If you want to make someone’s day or give a unique gift, Aloha Cookie Connection & Snacks offers pre-made gift baskets or customers can customize baskets to their liking! The shop will be participating in Ka Makana Ali’i’s 2nd birthday Royal Gift Bag Promotion by offering surprise gift bags in small, medium and large sizes. The anniversary event kicks of October 20 and runs through Sunday October 22.

Aloha Cookie Connection & Snacks is open M-S 10AM-9PM and Sunday 10AM-6PM.
