Hit Up Safeway for Your Lane Necessities

We hit up Safeway this morning for last minute necessities. Still had water Who knew peaches were a hurricane staple? Besides the peaches will go bad so how about food that will last longer? Like these cotton candy Twinkies? Or these Cookie Monster cookies? If water is not your thing, there’s always wine in a […]

Lucerne Lactose Free Milk Tastes “Cow Like”

Recently the Lucerne milk line at Safeway changed cartons, going with a different look. Or did the entire carton itself change? Different milk drinkers say the milk from this new carton tastes “cow like.” There’s a bovine quality to the milk that’s not welcomed. Maybe meant to mimic “farm fresh,” but the city dwellers and […]

Finally. With the impending arrival of neighboring Target, the main Safeway location in Kailua is getting a much needed facelift.

Who doesn’t love the sophisticated cookies? After you outgrow Oreos, Pepperidge Farms will be waiting. Remember the days of seeing Hickory Farms “pop up” […]

Seen at the Grocery

Highlighting some of the new stuff I saw at our local Safeway. Ben and Jerry’s has a new limited ice cream flavor, Key Lime Pie. I love me some key lime, and this frozen treat does taste like key lime. Mellow key lime anyways, not a mouth-puckering, eye-squinting, sour-on-the-tastebuds key lime. International Delight is changing […]

Adventures in Hawaii Kai

Got some catching up to do… Last week, went to the East side for dim sum and happened to catch the grand opening of Beard Papa’s, the maker of fresh ‘n natural cream puffs, located in the Koko Marina Foodland. The short line took forever to move. We ordered 6 puffs and were in line […]

Lifestylin’ with Safeway and Jordan

“Lifestyle” themes appear to be the latest trend in marketing. Safeway is renovating its stores with its Lifestyle look with the Hawaii Kai branch being the first in Hawaii. I guess with the Safeway Lifestyle remodeling comes the chocolatey fruity goodness of Coffeemate’s Chocolate Raspberry creamer. Went to the old school Safeways in Aiea and […]
