so generous of King’s Hawaiian, we got 2 bags of King’s Hawaiian bread and other goodies!!!!!

i left these in the kitchen and my mom finished a round bread by herself one afternoon. she said they are super super super good so she couldnt stop eating it. i just finished the 2nd bag of the sweet round bread as im writing this post; i couldnt stop chewing on it. they are super soft and buttery/sweet. their original hawaiian sweet bread, honey wheat, hot dog buns, hamburger buns, and savory butter dinner rolls are perfect for any family meals and celebrations.

  1. Such a lovely post! thanks for sharing with us all! All of the shown food dishes look amazing, very colourful & very appetizing too! I love that dessert as well! :) MMMMMMMMM!

  2. The Maine lobster salad in the hot dog bun looks very, very appetizing. And, I know what you mean that once you start nibbling on the Hawaiian sweet bread, it’s hard to stop. :)

    Fantastic photos as always.
