Hawaii Travel & Things To Do In Hawaii

Amy Fujimotohttps://alohawithlove.com
I grew up in Hawaii and love trying out new things to do in Hawaii. When I'm not writing about Hawaii travel, I document my Mom's recipes, hike with Daisy the waddling rescue, work on my 200-gallon aquaponics system, and dream about my future van conversion so I can do some more traveling.

Feel like some pie at the beach? Why not?

Ted’s Bakery has that hole-in-the-wall feel to it, but only because it’s a small standalone building that most people don’t notice when they drive by. It’s easy to miss, but if you do find it and take some time to check it out, you’ll find that both inside and outside will be crowded. In addition to baked goods, Ted’s Bakery also sells plate lunches, but what they’re really famous for are their pies. In particular, their chocolate haupia is probably their most well-known pie.

I hope you get a taste!

Hawaii Folks Love Their Chocolate Haupia Pies

When I go to a family party/potluck/gathering, I’m pretty confident that Ted’s chocolate haupia pie will make a showing. It’s a frequent visitor to many a party and it’s a flavor that everyone recognizes. Other bakeries will also have their own chocolate haupia pies, but these days Ted’s Bakery seems to be synonymous with this particular flavor.

The pie has a thick layer of chocolate pudding on the bottom followed by an equally thick layer of haupia pudding – a coconut pudding that you’ll probably get to taste at a luau dinner or touristy restaurant. If you’re not into coconut, no worries, there are plenty of other flavors for you to try out. But you may want to give it a try anyway – I’ve had a few friends who dislike coconut fall in love with haupia’s flavor. That’s because haupia is made with coconut milk, rather than from coconut meat.

Ted’s Bakery is standing room only and it’s bound to be crowded when you first step indoors; but, the line moves quickly mainly because people are ordering already made baked goods to grab and go. There’s a decent selection for you to slobber over, but if you’re short on time, money, or stomach space, just go for the pies for a quick taste. They come in whole pies and by the slice depending on how much you feel like eating.

Local Tip: If you don’t have enough time to stop at Ted’s Bakery, make a stop at and Safeway. There’s almost always a few Ted Bakery pies, including their signature chocolate haupia pie.

Just another bakery on the side of the road.
