hi reid, you are a real tease ;)fabulous pictures! especially that of the tart...


gaaaaah, that looks like one of those chocolate pudding pies from sunnyside, but i swear that is the pineapple whippy stuff from the dole plantation. is that pineapple whip available anywhere besides there?? oh wait, am i right?

happy holidays and mele kalikimaka to you!

clare eats


that looks yummy and I have noeyedeer


have a blessed Christmas!


GADS! Just gimme some! ::slurp:: ESPECIALLY the pineapple whip. That stuff is heaven!


Oh yum. Looks like Christmas is going to be tasty at your place!

Mele Kalikimaka!


Seeing that pie reminded me... You absolutely must try the Apple-Custard Pie at Deluxe Pastry Shop in "downtown" Kaneohe (45-1042 Kamehameha Hwy). And even better yet, call ahead to reserve a pie and ask them to add a layer of haupia (a dollar or two extra). I know it sounds kinda strange, but it's really good. I was given this tip by Danny Lopes, who wrote Moe Keale's "A Part Of Me, A Part Of You" (The Hospital Song).

Is that a chocolate haupia pie from Ted's bakery?


Oh my. That tart. Now I must go get myself some breakfast before I lick the screen.

Looks like a Sunny Side bakery pie!


Hi J,

Thank you! It was a delicious chocolate cream pie. It's one that I really love, but don't often have an opportunity to enjoy.

Hi Santos,

You're absolutely correct! I'm not sure if they serve Dole Whip anywhere else as I don't actively look for it. I always have to wait for my trips out to Wahiawa, which makes them all the better.

Mele Kalikimaka to you too!

Hi Clare,

There were yummy! Mmmm. =P

Hi babe_kl,

Same to you dear! =)

Hi Jo,

You said it. I love it!

Hi Melissa,

The holidays are always tasty, don't you think?

Mele Kalikimaka to you too!

Hi Kyle,

Thanks for the tip.

I'll be in Kaneohe next week sometime so I'll be sure to call ahead for the pie. Look for a report soon.

Hi Rae Ann,

Thanks for stopping by!

Close, but no cigar. The chocolate haupia pie has loads of whipped cream on top.

Nice guess though!

Hi Tara,

I take it you like chocolate. I do too (in pies at least)...that's why this is one of my favorites!

Hi Brian,

Welcome to the site.

It definitely is a chocolate cream pie from Sunny Side. It's one of my favorites!


Gah, Dole whip! That's my favorite "around the island trip" snack. I've always wanted to Sunny Side's pie, now I just need to find an excuse for going all the way to Wahiawa


I love Sunny Side pies. If only they weren't all the way in Wahiawa. Mmmm...


Hi Reid - the chocolate pie looks divine! Have a wonderful christmas and new year!


Hi Kathy,

I love Dole Whip too! I always have to get some when I visit the North Shore.

Sunny Side pies are delicious and if you haven't tried them before, you really should try them soon.

Happy Holidays!

Hi Marvo,

Yes, if they only weren't all the way in Wahiawa. *sigh*

I would have them more often because they are also so reasonably priced...much like how Ted's was back in the day.

Hi Keiko,

The chocolate pie is delicious. Not too sweet with just the right amount of chocolate flavor.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you too!


Both look delicious Reid! What's in the Dole whip - pineapple and cream?


ooh, their pies.
really feeling homesick now...


Hi Cathy,

I'm not sure how they make the Dole Whip, but try to imagine a whipped version of a pineapple sherbet. That's kind of what the flavor is like. The texture is like a soft serve ice cream cone.

Hi Kat,

I love the pies at Sunnyside too. It's a shame that I don't get to visit their more often..their plate lunches are pretty good too.

    Most of the newer photos on this site are being taken by this camera. I'm still learning how to use it, but I think the photos it takes are amazing. Though the lens I use often varies, many of the photos on this site are taken with a Canon EF 35mm f2.0 lens.

    A majority of the photos on this site were shot using this little camera. It was compact and discreet -- excellent for taking photos under most conditions. Sadly, it has recently died.
