Growing up on Hawaii, the Big Island, I’m a little shame to admit it wasn’t until a few weeks ago that I found out about these Ugly Cookies from Petroglyphs in Paradise. Now I can’t stop eating them!

My brother-in-law Jon asked me to bring some back from Kona when he found out I was heading there on business. Mission accomplished thanks to some help from my mom and a trip to Long’s KTA.

While they are ugly looking, they taste incredible. Light and crisp, packed with chocolate, oatmeal, rice cereal, and Kona Chips. They remind me of Momofuku Milk Bar’s Compost Cookie, but better. Brilliant! And I bet you can’t eat just one.

So the next time you’re on Hawaii Island and looking for a tasty omiyage (gifts) to take home to family and friends, consider some Ugly Cookies. They aren’t cheap with a price tag around $17 for a 18 oz. container.

But as the label suggests, “It’s what’s inside that counts!” And what’s inside is pretty darn good.
