Hey those look pretty cool. Although I don't think I've seen them before, and they do look like old soda bottles. Do they come in flavors? Do they sell them at the stores? If they do I want to know.

IF you are really interested.

I actually am going to pick up a case this Saturday although I have never tasted the stuff. They said they have root beer, pineapple and mango. What flavors did you try?

They were quite responsive via e-mail.

The soda will be for summer party. You know one of those lazy afternoons when the grill is going. :)

well, being a made in Hawaii product, and located near da ol Waialua sugar mill, it behooves them to use local kine stuffs.
So, herewith, the basics:


The modern Waialua Soda Works pineapple formula is a mixture of Maui natural cane sugar and C&H white sugar, plus pineapple concentrate.

new flavors:
Rootbeer, mango, lilikoi and melon or kiwi, cream soda, using Hawaiian vanilla.

Then I say everybody who lives in Hawai'i who comes to read HT should go out and support this company. THIS is the kind of company Hawai'i needs...located in Hawai'i, run by local people, for the Hawaiian market. If you have to drink soda, buy from Waialua Soda, not the local Pepsi or Coke bottlers. And keep buying their product until (or if) they get bought out by one of the majors. That, unfortunately, is the fate of most small successful companies. :(

Next time I'm on Maui, I'll ask the local supermarkets if they have started selling it, too.

well, transplanted mainlanders. And hopefully their reach will extend beyond the islands.


I am soured on pepsi:
When they had that big corporate convention, and paid the strolling bones their exhorbitant fee to perform, (when they also had their aloha stadium concert, which i was happy to attend, 5 rows from da stage, even...) on Hawaii island, pepsi painted their corporate colors and logo on lava rock that stretched along the road or path to the site.
Booo. auwe. and hope they are kahuna'ed.
