We had to drink a "Mocha Mama" (check)
And try Moloka'i Bread.
Moloka'i Bread I believed refered to the sweet bread from Kanemitsu's Bakery.
(Later I heard about a thing they call "Molokai Hot Bread" which is also at the bakery and may have been what she meant.)
We drove to Kaunakakai and went into the bakery. There were tons of blue bags of bread on the counter. All of which had names on them. These were pre-orders. I got the feeling that coming here on Easter may have been a mistake. But what could we do? We were going home today.
But I didn't know how heart-breaking it would be to be standing behind the person who got the LAST LOAF OF SWEET BREAD!
I was in shock.
I just had to leave. Getting anything other than the bread I had my heart set on would be "chasing."
So we decided to drive as far away as we could. It would have been so much easier if they had run out an hour ago. Even fifteen minutes ago. But the lady in front of us? I started running through everything that slowed me down that day by just a minute. "Maybe if I didn't make that U-turn to park..."
So we ended up driving all the way to Halawa Valley. Which was spectacular and got our minds off of things.
Well what really got our minds off of it was fearing for our lives. The road to Halawa is quite precarious and becomes only one lane at the scariest parts. But then it was time to head back to the airport to make our flight. (Or so we thought, little did we know that our flight was going to be delayed for over an hour.)
We passed through Kaunakakai one last time and we just HAD to try something from that bakery. So my girlfriend went in and bought the last bag of bread they had.
This bag, it was sandwich rolls basically, was the last item in the whole bakery. The "lemon filled" in the Kanemitsu "donut box." And well...
Look I'm not going to review a bakery based on their hot dog buns. And now that I know they serve it hot at night, I guess I'm going have to plan another trip.
