News Release #48 – This new UACOCO package will be the perfect gift!

A more affordable price and size for a gift!
Rainbow coconut cracker UACOCO released a new boxed package in a cute compact size!

Since its release as the project’s third Made in Hawaii product to support Hawaii’s local businesses last year, this rainbow coconut cracker “UACOCO” has shown its overwhelming popularity that production was nearly outpaced by demand at times. Mid-September, “UACOCO” has released a new boxed package in a cute compact size and is now available at 111-HAWAII PROJECT’s participating vendors!

The new UACOCO package comes with 32 pieces in a more affordable suggested retail price of $6.90 compared to the original UACOCO (36 pieces). Also, the new package is a compact boxed type so the crackers are less likely to break, and is easier to pack inside your suit case, making this the perfect gift to distribute for everyone. Please try our UACOCO in the new packaging for your next Hawaii gift!

What is UACOCO?

“Uakoko” (Hawaiian word for Soft Rainbow) + “Coconut” = UACOCO
UACOCO is a coconut flavor based crispy crackers in rainbow colors to represent Hawaii. In Hawaii, rainbows are said to be 6 colors, so we carefully chose 6 flavors that would match with the base coconut flavor; Pink Guava, Peach Orange, Yellow Pineapple, Green Matcha, Blue Coconut, Purple Potato.

The fusion of different cultures, food, tastes and flavors here in Hawaii is what really makes it special. Popular sweets amongst locals, such as Chi Chi Dango, originated from Japanese sweets and were made in Hawaii. Operating for over 60 years, Fujiya Honpo was one of the Japanese sweets shop that introduced mochi to Hawaii. This collaboration product with Fujiya Honpo is a Japanese senbei “Tea Cookie” based sweets, a new fusion of Hawaii and Japan.
