Ok this is my bread so i gotta go deep on this this bread is like my homie



Kings Hawaiian bread has the perfect combination of a fluffy inner core with the most most amazing outer crust, it is baked until a golden crisp is seen covering the whole face of the outer roll. this is just the begging of the wonders that this bread holds. It all started in the late 1950's with Robert Taira who founded the company which at the time was called Roberts Bakery in Hilo hawaii. In the 1963 the company moved to Honolulu and changed their name to the one... the only.. Kings's Hawaiian. this was the beginning of a empire that was destined to be the best. Robert Himself was the son of Japanese immigrants, Graduating at the top let me emphases this THE TOP of his baking class he decided to open his own bakery 'Roberts Bakery'. But after moving to Honolulu his company want just seen as any other bakery. it almost instantly became a staple to the locals who would line up for blocks to get a taste of Robert's famous breads and cakes which were prepared and served with Aloha Spirit, an expression of caring and sharing that is an essential part of island culture. people no... locals were loving his bread outside of just eating it, they said things like "its ok" and "not bad" things like this help Kings Hawaiian move form the small islands of Hawaii to the main land the one the only USA BABY. it really started with the loacals pawning off Roberts mouthwatering bread to hick tourists who would never fully understand the meaning of his bread. So in 1977 a new 24,000-square-foot bakery was built in Torrance California. And it was called, what else? King's Hawaiian Bakery Bitches. 'Missing personal interaction with King's Hawaiian fans, Robert opened a family run bakery and restaurant in Torrance. The menu included Robert's LEGENDARY tropical cakes, along withTRADITIONAL Hawaiian fare. In 1983, Robert responded to more and more requests for new ways to enjoy King's Hawaiian by baking up the 12 PACK OMG REVOULUTION of Original Hawaiian Sweet Dinner Rolls. By the 1980s, Taira's company, King's Hawaiian Bakery, was grossing US$20 million annually(WOW SUCH MONEY). In 1988 the company established their current corporate headquarters in Torrance, California Always true to his original recipe – in 1986, Robert baked up Honey Wheat Round Bread, to the delight of bread-lovers everywhere if you dont like this bread after all he went through you are the devil.'

Pros

I always thought it was just another Portuguese sweet bread, didn't think it was some big thing anywhere, is this recently popular or something?

Portuguese sweet bread is good in general though.

It is. It is just that on the mainland most people have only had King's Hawaiian. The Portuguese influence is nowhere near as strong on the mainland as it is in Hawaii. So while it is just a part of the normal food scene in Hawaii, it seems more exotic on the mainland. Ex Pats probably feel nostalgic for it as well, since food from Hawaii is relatively rare on the mainland unless you cook it yourself.

Liliha Bakery and Leonard's is also good. Ani's in Aiea sells some good sweet breads as well.

Arby's recent partnered with King's though for some of their sandwiches which probably helped the exposure. Pretty much every supermarket I go into today has a King's Hawaiian display. So it is a lot more ubiquitous these days.

I think I would take a Malasada over sweet bread. Although sweet breads like Ani's with the fruit fillings can be frozen and taken with you to the mainland for later consumption. Whereas a frozen and reheated Malasada is just a sad thing.

And then King said" Let there be King's Hawaiian sweet rolls" and it was so yummy.

I could really go for some of those sweet rolls now. At my job when they have me working cashier I get quite a few people coming through my lane with a pack or two of the King's Hawaiian sweet rolls. I try to fight the temptation of running off with them.

Never heard of it.

But yet again I'm a vegetarian organic food snob who gets nearly everything at Trader Joe's, Whole Foods and Fairway, and last time I seriously shopped in the supermarket (rather than "hunted" for something specific) was quite a while ago, so if this is some new thing, meh.

Hell yeah, I love malasadas. Used to live on the north shore and there was always a malasada stand outside the Mililani walmart with them being fried up fresh, loved those things.
