I have never been to Hawaii but I sure love the butter macadamia nut cookies from Honolulu Cookie Company.  Even for Xmas, my friend special ordered the cookies from Hawaii for me.
During that time, we realized there is a store in Las Vegas at the Venetian.  We debated if the location was real or not and called to check if they had the flavors I wanted.  Unfortunately when we called, no one answered so we just ordered the gift online.
Since I was going to Las Vegas for New Years, then why not go down to check it out for myself.  They actually offered all the seasonal flavors and had many samples to try.  You can purchase the individually or pre-made gift sets.  They also had tiny pineapple shaped cookies to choose from.
I wish they had more of the tiny peppermint butter macadamia nut cookies to purchase.  They apparently only had samples to give out.  I tried a couple and just ended up buying more of the big individual cookies.
If you love these cookies and live near Las Vegas, then I would say stock up when you come for a visit.  My friend bought me the cookies with a shipping deal of 25% off and still ended up costing her $15 for shipping.  Plan a trip for Las Vegas and save the money to have more cookies!

Testing! :)

I have decided that I'm going to use this way of updating my readers! I'm about to leave for a fantastical European vacation and want to keep my readers up to date on my fun adventure!

I never have time to post when I get back so why not abridge the posts until one day (when aliens take over the world) I'll put up a real post.  In the meantime, you can see the wonders I see! ^_~

I remember coming to Hello Dessert for the first time eons ago and how they don't allow photos.  Everything still looks the same and the menu seems to have expanded.  Still not sure about taking photos but I take them anyway! O:)
We ordered 3 drinks, popcorn chicken, and an appetizer assortment that came out to be about $40.  Needless to say that the prices are not cheap.  I got my favorite Mango Moo, which the name is funny enough.  The smooth and flavorful texture of mango topped off with bits of mango.  Ms. Lin Guide decided to try the avocado smoothie and it was good.  You can taste that they use real avocados.  
The popcorn chicken was not bad.  It was better than what I thought they would serve.  I like that they had basil chopped up and fried in the batch.  The appetizer assortment was just okay.  I wish they baked the garlic cheese bread longer so that the cheese could melt.  The fried mozzarella sticks were good but no different from your typical frozen food sold in markets.  I thought the calamari was just meh.  If you want a snack, just go for the popcorn chicken only.

All in all it was fun to take a trip down memory lane.  I still like the Mango Moo, so I'll eventually be back...
