Mauna Kea Mist a photo-friendly treat

We finally tried the Mauna Kea Mist ($5.95) from Da Snack Shack at Pearlridge Center. The airy balls don’t taste like much but it sure is fun to eat. They are barely sweet but with a choice of dipping sauce that isn’t tasty enough to justify its mist-blocking properties. Also available at the newly opened Japan Village Walk kiosk.

Spring Break fun

If you can’t quite afford a Spring Break getaway, vacation at home. Hans Hedemann Surf School is running a Spring Break Keiki Waterman Adventure on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon at Turtle Bay Resort through April 14. Kids ages 7-14 can learn tandem surfing and stand-up paddleboarding and ride an outrigger canoe for $140. After the class is over, hit the links with the resort’s kids golf free noon-4:30 p.m. deal.
