Honolulu Cookie Company Announces New Whale Collection and Charity Partnership

Make a Big Splash With a Whale of a Cookie!

HONOLULU, HI--(Marketwired - October 06, 2014) - To celebrate the start of Hawaii's whale season, which runs October through May, Honolulu Cookie Company is proud to release their new Whale Cookie, a delicious shortbread treat shaped like the tail of a Hawaiian Humpback Whale.

The Whale Collection will be available in Honolulu Cookie Company's two Maui retail stores: Front Street and Whalers Village, and online at www.HonoluluCookie.com starting October 3, and in four of Honolulu Cookie Company's Oahu retail stores: Ala Moana Shopping Center, Hilton Hawaiian Village, Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach and Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center on October 14.

"Every year we get excited when we see the humpback whales return to our Hawaiian waters," said Ginger Waters, Vice President of Marketing with Honolulu Cookie Company. "These seasonal cookies make a great gift, and they also celebrate our partnership with Pacific Marine Life Foundation, a non-profit organization that's dedicated to public education and efforts to sustain all 20 species of Hawaii dolphins and whales."

"Honolulu Cookie Company is showing true aloha for the whales by giving back to these wonderful creatures who give all of us so much pure joy," said Jason Price, Director of Marketing and Public Relations for Pacific Marine Life Foundation (PMLF). "We are grateful for Honolulu Cookie Company's partnership and generous support."

The Whale Collection comes in a beautiful sea blue packaging decorated with humpback whale motifs. The deep blue Whale Collection Wrap Box, bearing a large cut-out of a joyful leaping whale, holds 12 whale cookies in 4 Honolulu Cookie Company flavor favorites, including Pineapple Macadamia and Chocolate Dipped Macadamia ($14.95).

The larger, elegant Whale Collection Gift Box pays tribute to the majestic grandeur of these awe-inspiring mammals in a quilted turquoise blue box embossed with a silver whale design and wrapped with a silver bow. The Gift Box contains 24 whale cookies in 8 signature flavors, including Dark Chocolate Coconut and White Chocolate Kona Coffee.
