Located among the variety of shops on Lahaina's popular Front St. is a store called Tutu's Pantry. I spent well over an hour there...testing hot sauce! The shelves here are stocked with a foodies dream - jellies, bbq sauces, seasonings, spices and hot sauce. The staff are very friendly and have a counter set up with all necessities for taste testing an array of hot sauce, without burning your taste buds. The reason you NEED to try these out (if you're a fan of hot sauce that is) is because it's impossible to choose! There's coconut hot sauce, guava hot sauce, tropical vinagrette hot sauce...and then there are the jellies...I could go on and on...and I did one afternoon while the crew were out snorkling. Might sound like an unusual way to pass the time while on Maui, but I loved it and can't wait to go back there just to stock up my shelves with these island goodies that have become a favorite in our home.
You won't find these items on the mainland so get 'em while their hot in Maui! It'll add spice to your life and remind you of paradise while you're killing time until your next Hawaiian adventure.
