Ala Moana Shopping Center, Honolulu: 24 reviews and 75 photos

ONE REASON OR SHOULD I SAY THE MAIN REASON I HAVE REALLY LIKED THIS STORE IS THAT THE OWNER AND I HAD A LANGUAGE TOGETHER MANY YEARS A GO IT SEEMS... BUT THE IDEA OF CRACK SEED IN HAWAII IS VERY POPULAR AND ALSO VERY TASTY.ONE HAS TO TRY IT AND THEN IT CAN BE SOMETHING THAT YOU COME TO LIKE VERY MUCH Crack seed, a popular local snack in Hawaii, comes in a variety of shapes, sizes, and flavors. Also known as Li Hing Mui or See Mui, crack seed is actually a variety of dehydrated and preserved fruits Before canned goods were available, merchants heading west across the rugged terrain of China carried dehydrated fruits to supplement their meals of plain rice. The salt in crack seed was useful for long distance travelers in several ways: besides replenishing the salt lost by the body in perspiration, it also helps the body retain water and lessen muscle cramps.
Crack seed was first shipped and sold directly from mainland China but storeowners in Honolulu's Chinatown gradually began to customize seeds for local taste buds.
