Sugar Overload

A Saturday excursion to find the best way to treat your kids this summer.

If you’re looking for a way to spoil your kids this summer, we’ve got you covered. We set out on a Saturday adventure to test a few confectionaries on our kids. Since it’s never too early for ice cream, we started at Gypsea Gelato in Kealakekua.

They have wonderful amenities for kids, keiki-sized tables, outdoor games, and a play area in the shape of a pirate ship, full of toys and kids’ books. But the main attraction is the handmade gelato. The ingredients are locally sourced, and with their wide variety of creative flavors, it’s easy to find something everyone enjoys.

With sticky fingers and one stained shirt, we packed into the car and headed to Candy Cove located in the Kona Inn Shopping Village. The kids were mesmerized by the variety of goodies: salt water taffies, gummies, chocolates, and a few sophisticated items for the parent’s in-tow. This store has everything. The children walked around in circles trying to make up their minds.

In need of some cool air, our next stop was Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice at the King Kamehameha Beach Resort. With 42 flavors and the option for snow-capped mochi or Li Hing Mui powder, it’s prudent to have your kids sit down, enjoy the AC and make the order alone. 

At this point, with insulin levels skyrocketing, we wanted to provide some macronutrients other than sugar. Luckily, King Kam is a local producer of the infamous Mr. Beast Burger. So we downloaded the app and ordered what turned out to be a fantastic hamburger. The kids might have been more excited about the Mr. Beast logo than the food, but a win is a win.

We can’t advise you to string all these treats together like we did but we hope it gives you a few new ideas for your next weekend excursion.
