Love Chocolate Dip? Try Chocolate Chip!

HONOLULU, HI--(Marketwired - July 24, 2014) - Chocolate lovers, this is your big summer! Honolulu Cookie Company, maker of Hawaii's favorite premium shortbread cookies, has added new flavors to its signature shortbread collection: Chocolate Chip Macadamia, Chocolate Chip Kona Coffee, and Chocolate Chip Chocolate Macadamia.

Rich, semi-sweet chocolate chips infuse these crunchy, pineapple-shaped cookies with standout chocolate sweetness popping in every buttery, delectable bite. "These treats are the first flavors in two and a half years we've added outside of our limited-edition holiday collections -- these new chocolate chips add 3 new flavors, bringing the count to 18 in our lineup of signature tastes!" said Ginger Waters, VP of Marketing. "If you love chocolate dip, you'll want to try chocolate chip," said Waters, noting that the cookies, which are baked fresh daily in Honolulu, should satisfy chocolate cravings anywhere cookie fans receive these fresh tropical shortbread treats, which can be ordered online at HonoluluCookie.com for prompt shipment.

Along with the introduction of chocolate chips, Honolulu Cookie Company has designed fresh packaging for gift collections featuring the new cookies: The Chocolate Chip Collection ($12.95) and the Fruit & Chip Collection ($12.95). The chocolate chip cookies are also available in the Chocolate Chip Collection Pineapple Ornament ($4.95) and the Tropical Cookie Jar ($29.95).

Based on the original 1998 recipe developed by founders Keith and Janet Sung, these buttery rich, chocolate chip shortbread cookies strike the perfect balance with a crispy, yet delicate texture and just the right amount of sweetness. The rest of the 15 signature flavors feature hand-dipped gourmet dark, milk and white chocolate, while others have tropical fruit pieces or Kona Coffee beans hand-pressed into their centers.
