Hawaii is known for its beautiful vistas, volcanic rocks, and fun dances. It also has some excellent agricultural products, which make good souvenirs. They're affordable, don't take up a lot of space, and won't sit on a shelf gathering dust for years (unless you never eat or drink them). If you're traveling to Hawaii and are looking for an affordable souvenir, consider getting one of these agricultural souvenirs.
Kona coffee is coffee from the state of Hawaii. Driftaway Coffee explains that even though Kona coffee is grown under 2,000 feet above sea level, which typically produces simple, mild, and bland coffee, it tastes excellent. The coffee matures slowly, like coffees at higher elevations, because Hawaii is so far north of the equator.
Kona coffee can be found throughout the United States, but there are two reasons to get it while you're in Hawaii. First, it's easy to find pure Kona coffee in Hawaii's coffee shops, cafes, and boutiques. Outside of Hawaii, Kona coffee is often mixed with other coffees to create blends, so you don't get the pure Kona taste.
Second, some coffee farms in Hawaii offer tours. Going on a tour lets you see the trees that grew your coffee and the facility where the coffee was processed. This added level of knowledge will make your souvenir even more special when you brew the coffee at home.
A Hawaiian Pineapple
The pineapples from Hawaii may not be as well known as the state's coffee, but the pineapples are just as delicious. You can find pineapples and pineapple treats all over the state's islands. As with coffee, there are pineapple plantations you can visit while in Hawaii. You can also find freshly picked pineapples at roadside stands and stores. Even if you don't like pineapple, get one to try because you've probably never had a pineapple as fresh as the pineapples that are just brought in off the farm.
A Bottle of Hawaiian Wine
For wine aficionados, Hawaii has a few vineyards and wineries. The state's climate isn't as well-suited for growing grapes as other state's regions, but grapes can be grown where the islands reach at least 1,500 feet able sea level. Even if the wine isn't as good as that from Napa Valley or Sonoma Valley in California, or the Finger Lakes in New York, Hawaii has unique wine that a connoisseur of the beverage can appreciate.
