Jaymes Song

His Kraft-y
idea’s a winner

Jaymes Song dug himself into a hole, but it was a good thing, and it won him a digital camera.

Song -- the Star-Bulletin's police reporter -- is the first of 12 winners in the "Just Say Cheese" contest sponsored by Kraft Foods Hawaii and Fujifilm. His prize was a $400 Fuji digital camera.

"The hardest part was digging the hole -- because I'm not a small guy, right? -- so I had to dig the hole pretty deep," Song says.

Buying all the products cost about $25 (when you really need these things, none are on sale). Shopping and shooting together took about 2-1/2 hours.

"I wanted to do something with the beach, something Hawaii-themed, something eye-catching and funny," he says. "I thought, what if I had a little Kraft body and my big head? I don't think my real body can sell any products." The photo was taken at Kailua Beach Park by a friend, who also helped dig the hole.

Well, now that you know what Kraft is looking for, you can enter: Submit a picture of yourself, your family and/or your friends with at least one Kraft product by Sept. 25. Send entries to "Kraft Say Cheese," P.O. Box 4376, Honolulu 96812-4376. Call 524-5080.

Honeydew melon flavors a light, creamy dessert
that's new in the market.

Frozen treats to
beat the heat

The idea for Meadow Gold Dairies' latest frozen dessert flavor came up through the employee ranks. Honeydew Melon, just released in stores, is a light green, light-tasting dessert, and it was created based on an employee's suggestion.

The honeydew frozen dessert -- not an ice cream, although it's creamy like one -- is locally made and sold in half-gallon containers.

Also new from Meadow Gold: The company is donating a portion of its sales of special cartons of vanilla, chocolate, Neapolitan and Cookies 'n Cream ice cream to Hawaii's youth soccer teams.

The cartons have a soccer-themed design featuring the logo of the American Youth Soccer Organization. Proceeds will support AYSO's coaching and referee programs, as well as other activities.
