What to do, however, if you are in Ohio dreaming of li hing cherry and shredded mango?
Jump on the 'Net.
Hawaii crack seed purveyors have found a mainland niche market for their mouthwatering delicacies.
To fill that demand, a number of distributors have started hawking their Hawaii snacks via the Internet.
For homesick college students, displaced islanders and those who just want to shop by phone, getting your fill of rock salt plum and smoked cuttlefish legs is just a click away.
One of the most complete sites is Crackseed Hawaii, located in Waipahu. You can find it at http://www.bvkhawaii.com/crackseed/.
Also online and waiting for your order is Annie's Island Baskets at http://www.anniesbaskets.com/crack.html, which features a Web-friendly ordering form.
Hawaii Internet General Store at http://webwrite.com/higs/ also sells crack seed and other Hawaii items.
