    Thanks for creating this

      Oh my goodness, that would be fantastic! I’ll put writing the article on my list of things to do. If I am very good I could get it to you by the end of the month.

    Oh, the last day I was in Maui in January, we dropped into Sweet Paradise Chocolate, a small chocolatier that is in the same mall as the Monkeypod Kitchen. When I asked about the chocolates, I was delighted when I was told that everything in the store was gluten-free! I bought a couple of packages of chocolate covered macadamia nuts, but have not yet indulged in them.

    This location in Kihei opened just last year. They said that currently they also have locations on Oahu and The Big Island, but they are planning to close both of them and concentrate on the Maui one.

      Thank you for sharing. I stopped by the other night before going to Monkeypod for dinner. I only had time for a quick glance, but everything looked so beautiful and delicious. I hope you enjoy your chocolates.

    Where can I purchase Chia on Maui?

    • Amanda says:

      You can find chia many places on Maui: Mana Foods, Whole Foods Market, Down to Earth, Hawaiian Moons, Foodland, Safeway. Just about any supermarket or health food store will carry it.

    Hi,

    I am travelling soon to Maui from Australia and am both Gluten and Dairy free. I am meeting up with friends from Canada and one of them forwarded the link to this webpage to me. I am over the moon at seeing this page because I was really worried about eating this trip as my last trip to Maui in 2006, was a bad experience with eating for me and exceptionally limited.
    So looking forward to trying some of these shops and restuarants.
    Thank you.

    I stumbled upon your website and feel so blessed that I did! My nine-year-old daughter was diagnosed with Celiac Disease (very high antibody test & positive biopsy) December 2013 & has been GF since January 1. We love to eat out & travel but haven’t done much of either since her diagnosis because it stresses me out! She doesn’t have any gastrointestinal symptoms so there is no way to know if she has been “glutenned”!
    Anyway, we will be in Maui October 21-29 staying at the Grand Wailea Condo Rentals (so that I can do most of the cooking). Your list of grocery stores is helpful but I am wondering which store has the most GF options? I have not been that impressed with Whole Foods here in San Diego (ravioli will say GF on front of package but then have a disclaimer in small print on the back stating: food is processed in a plant that also processes wheat). But I’ve heard Whoke Foods offers a curbside concierge service for price. Saving time. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance! Karin

      For stores with the most options, I would say those would be stores such as Whole Foods, Mana Foods, and Down to Earth. I’m not sure how much Hawaiian Moons has, but I do know they have some.

      I don’t know anything about the concierge service at Whole Foods. It’s not something I’ve ever used. I would actually say that it’d be safer for you to look at the products yourself rather than letting someone else do that, especially if they may not know how diligent they’d need to be to keep your daughter safe.
