Exceptional E-Commerce, Local Style

This month, we feature three Web sites that satisfy your appetite for a taste of aloha.

Crackseeds Plus Hawaii

This virtual store sells everything from its namesake snacks to books, videos and music. You’ll most likely find Crackseeds products at your neighborhood supermarket, however, li hing mui lovers living outside of Hawaii will find this on-line store an oasis. Among the Crackseeds accolades: customer testimonials and the “Top Service Star,” Yahoo’s highest award in its Customer Rating Program.

The Bottom Line:

This Web site offers a cornucopia of local delicacies that are great gifts for homesick Hawaiians.

L&L Drive Inn

L&L Drive Inn’s home page is as hearty as its famous plate lunches. Although you can’t order food from this Web site, you can learn about the history of L&L’s business, look at its catering menu, and search among its expansive list of restaurant locations.

The Bottom Line:

Sorry, this is no substitute for the real thing, but it can help you find the address of the Ilima Award-winning plate lunch store closest to you.

School Kine Cookies

Now, whenever you crave those creamy, buttery cookies by School Kine Cookies, you won’t have to wait to buy them at the next neighborhood fund-raiser. School Kine Cookies provides direct orders on its Web site. In addition, the Web site also offers special deals for non-profit organizations looking to raise some money.

The Bottom Line:

Albeit fundamental, this Web site offers everything— short of a glass of milk.
