Honolulu Cookie Company Box

Whenever you see good design, you just can't help but admire it! 

When we were in Hawaii just after Christmas, we found the Honolulu Cookie Company.  Now they make pretty fine cookies (their coconut shortbread is to die for!), but what I had to have was a box full of their cookies - because of the *box*! This box has lots of moving parts and is heavy.  There is a little spot of velcro to keep it together - it should have a padlock...!

And how can you resist a little pineapple shaped cookie?  They're so inviting.  Another brilliant design element.

It must have cost a small fortune to produce these boxes.  I have to stand up and applaud them for "going for the gusto"!

Very cool.
Very yummy.
Very creative!
