Some time ago, I heard a nasty little rumor that the Komoda Store (and Bakery) in Maui that makes those marvellous "Makawao Cream Puffs" and the Azuki Pies went out of business.

Please tell me that it's not so!

Whenever I find myself on Maui for business, I always make it a point to make a detour to Makawao to pick up these goodies to take home as omiyage.

Can anyone confirm or deny the validity of this rumor?

Eep! I hadn't read anything to that effect, but I'll keep an eye out. I remembered this Honolulu Advertiser article (http://the.honoluluadvertiser.com/article/2004/Jan/26/ln/ln05a.html):
Tomorrow's opening of the much-anticipated, much-hyped Krispy Kreme Doughnuts shop in Kahului the first in Hawai'i will be a test of loyalty for patrons of two longtime Maui bakeries with statewide followings.And that was only in January. So soon?

Some time ago, I heard a nasty little rumor that the Komoda Store (and Bakery)... Can anyone confirm or deny the validity of this rumor? Nuh, uh...denied. This rumor's been rearing it's ugly head for several years now. Those Komoda's are old, but still fully functioning. :)

BTW: Krispy Kreme's dun stand a chance against a Komoda doughnut stick. :)
