Aloha!

I just found this community and thought maybe someone would be able to help me out.

I was born in Honolulu, used to live in Kailua then Kaneohe. I pretty much grew up on Lanikai Beach, we were there all the time with my cousins (who live here in Northern Cali now also). Although I am now almost 22 and I moved to Northern California when I was about 10 and haven't been able to go back since, I miss it so much. All of my favorite memories are there. Thanks to Myspace, I was able to reconnect with my friend who lived just 2 houses away from me in Kaneohe, and it turns out her parents are still in the same exact house. I thought for sure they would have moved.

Anyways, my cousin and I share a special bond. We love love love our Hawaiian Sun drinks (Passion orange represent!! lol). I used to get them when my mom would go to the Asian markets up here in Cali, but most of those places have closed down and the one new one that just opened does not carry them :( I found where I can order some online, but I would like to go to the store to get it because online, it is way more expensive than I have ever paid for it. Plus, I don't want to wait for shipping, my cousin was in a car accident this past weekend and I was going to bring him some.

If anyone knows where I could find it in the Fairfield/Vacaville/Davis area please let me know. Its not that big of a deal, I just thought it would be nice to bring him some.

Thanks!

sorry i can't help with the hawaiian sun drinks, but oh man, passion orange was my favorite too! and i have a similar story to yours, just throw in being a navy brat, haha. i was born in honolulu, lived in ewa beach and waipahu my first two years, and moved between socal and norcal until i was 6. then we moved back to hawaii and left when i was 10 :( i am 23 now. if i ever get married (haha) i'd want to go back to hawai'i for my honeymoon.
I would like to get married there, thats where my parents were married. I find myself browsing jobs in Oahu... I would love to move back!
I know that if you're anywhere near a L&L Hawaiian Barbecue, you can find some cans of Hawaiian Sun there. My father lives in Tahoe and there's one right in Reno. Some Sam's Clubs sell them, not here on the east coast but you might have some luck looking at the warehouse stores out there. I live in MA, and I just ordered 12 cans of Pass-O-Guava via ebay. I paid 20 dollars total, which was cheaper than the 60 they charge for 24 cans on the Hawaiian Sun website.

Good luck, let us know if you find any!
Yeah we have an L&L in the next town over and they have some, that is my last resort though, because I wanted to get a whole case to split with him. My search continues... and I will let you know how it turns out! I have a few stores on my list to check out. Thanks!
