Is ironic.

I was curious if I could purchase a case of Hawaiian brand snacks straight from its manufacturer, and I was shocked they don't currently ship to residential addresses in Hawaii!

"We are unable to ship to P.O. Boxes, APO addresses, Hawaii, and Alaska," informed me in their shipping policy.[1]

Hawaiian brand snacks is owned by Pinnacle Foods, Inc. which ships their items from Auburn, Washington, which is located approximately 11 miles away from the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

Interestingly, their shopping cart allowed me to check out a 15 bag case of 8 ounce chips for $92.43 ($41.25 for the chips and $51.18 for UPS Ground shipping to Honolulu). I didn't try to complete that order for obvious reasons...
