HAWAIIAN CHIP COMPANY
If you are ever between the airport and Waikiki, I highly recommend that you stop by the Hawaiian Chip Companyon Republican Street. This Hawaii small business owned by Jimmy Chan makes some really good Taro and Sweet Potato Chips in a small warehouse next to an Air Conditioning Contractor and Restaurant Equipment company. Jimmy also makes some really good hot sauce named Kilauea Fire and Raging Volcano. His products are so good that he has to turn down selling mainland Costco stores because he cannot obtain enough quantity of Taro to fill the orders. You can however buy his products in local Costco stores. Jimmy's Gourmet Taro and Sweet Potato Chips come in Original, Zesty Garlic, Kiawe BBQ and Kilauea Fire flavors. I love to eat them with his hot sauces. The Kilauea Fire is slightly sweet with a back end kick of heat. The Raging Volcano sauce packs a nice punch of Habanero Pepper heat from start to finish. The flavor is addicting. You will stand there in his warehouse and eat an entire bag. Jimmy brought out a piping hot fresh bag of chips for us to sample. Everyone in our group ended up buying chips, hot sauce or both. Jimmy is a dedicated salesmen who simply enjoys his product and customers. This is the kind of business you want to succeed. Jimmy does not cut corners. He uses 100% fresh Hawaii products to make his chips. The Taro comes from the Big Island and Sweet Potatoes from Molokai. You can enjoy a free sample during the week and also on Saturdays. 1928 Republican Street. Honolulu, HI.
They also serve and sell 100% Hawaii Coffee from the Big Island and Oahu. Free samples.

The birth of our delectable chips began through the aspirations of entrepreneur James “JimmyChan” Chan and inspiration from Emeril Lagasse’s cooking show. From dream to conception, James relentless pursuit to find the best cooking method and perfect balance of spices has made our sweet potato and taro chips one of Hawaii’s favorite snack chips. Only the highest quality Okinawan sweet potato and taro grown on the Big Island and golden sweet potato grown on Molokai is used to make our gourmet chips. By using only the freshest and highest quality produce we are able to consistently offer you the best sweet potato and taro chips on the market today. If you don’t believe us, try a bag for yourself–you will notice the difference.
With the market currently demanding healthier foods, we strive to keep our chips as natural as possible. Without compromising the quality and taking our customers health concerns to heart, we switched our cooking oil from partially hydrogenated soy bean oil to canola oil, which is trans-fat free. In addition, our cooking process allows us to minimize the amount of sodium without sacrificing flavor, and it also allows us to keep our product preservative free. We don’t want you to worry about your health when you “inadvertently” munch away a whole bag.
Throughout the years we have developed five tempting flavors, which we are sure you will find a favorite that will satisfy your cravings. These flavors are: Original (lightly salted), Zesty Garlic, Kiawe BBQ, Kilauea Fire and Sugar Coated.
Keep an eye out for possible new flavors and products in the upcoming year!
