HONOLULU COOKIE COMPANY® INTRODUCES NEW, FLOWER-SHAPED COOKIES FOR MOTHER’S DAY
HONOLULU, April 12, 2013 – The plumeria, commonly used to make leis and traditionally given to visitors as a welcoming gesture and symbol of Aloha, serve as the inspiration for the Honolulu Cookie Company’s Mother’s Day collection and new flower-shaped cookies.
The five Mother’s Day gift ideas are available in limited quantities. The beautiful collection is filled with delicious bouquets of flower-shaped premium shortbread cookies.
The cookies are baked each and every day from a traditional recipe using only the finest ingredients and natural flavors from Hawaii including, creamy macadamia nuts, rich Kona coffee, finely-shredded coconut and sweet Lilikoi (passion fruit). Each cookie is individually-wrapped to preserve its oven-freshness.
The Large Flower Gift Box is a timeless classic containing 24 cookies neatly tucked into a chocolate-colored box wrapped in a petite satin bow. A similar Medium Flower Gift Box is a smaller yet elegant alternative. Each cookie is hand-dipped in only the finest dark and milk chocolates just waiting to be savored.
The Flower Cube is an indulgent treat with the most cookies in the entire collection for any mother to enjoy with their loved ones. Forty cookies in 15 flavors peek through the clear cube that is delicately-wrapped in a large lemon-colored ribbon.
A charming Mother’s Day gift for friends or co-workers is the Flower Pop-Up Box with a flower-shaped window offering a sneak-peak of the tasty cookies. Another is the Flower Gift Bag with a dozen crunchy morsels.
“The plumeria not only smells beautiful but is a wonderful gesture of Aloha which served as our inspiration for Mother’s Day,” explained Ginger Waters, Vice President of Marketing, Honolulu Cookie Company. “Giving a gift to mom is a similar gesture of love and appreciation for everything they do for us.”
Honolulu Cookie Company’s premium cookies are featured in 15 unique, island-inspired flavors made fresh in Hawaii such as the Triple Chocolate Macadamia, Dark Chocolate Lilikoi, Mango Macadamia, Kona Coffee and Lilikoi Mango. Select cookies are embellished with sweet morsels of dried mango, pineapple, coconut or Kona coffee bean.
Cookies are delicately-placed in signature packaging to ensure that each box is presented as a treasured gift.
