I’m not a cream pie fan, with one exception. I much prefer fruit-filled pies, especially fresh (uncooked) marionberry or strawberry pie. Word was though that Ted’s chocolate haupia cream pie was to die for. Since the bakery was on our route to Hale’iwa anyway, we made a dutiful stop here.
This was a great pie. There are two layers, one made with chocolate custard cream, the other haupia (or coconut pudding). The pie is then topped with whipped cream. Not in the least overly sweet, one bite of this pie was enough to have temporary amnesia about berry pies and put it on a level with the other cream pie that I am addicted to—key lime.
Luckily, you don’t have to drive all the way up to the North Shore to have this island classic. Many of the supermarkets in Honolulu sell it.
Ted’s also sells Hawaiian grub, but I didn’t hear much about it. Chocolate haupia. Chocolate haupia. Chocolate haupia. Onolicious, yeah?
