P.O.G., (the Hawaiian drink) where can I find it in LA?

Is there a grocery store in LA that sells frozen Hawaiian POG, (Passion, orange, guava juice blend) ? They sell it fresh in cartons in Hawaii and it's named POG . I use to be able to get Hawaiian delight mixture that was mostly sugar from Albertson"s and Von's but they don't carry it any more. Does anyone have any clues? Thanks.

  1. Albertson's and Safeway in NorCal still carries Hawaiian Delight. Just bought some. You might ask for it. If that doesn't work you might need to go to da islands with a Hawaiian suitcase (plastic ice chest) and bring it back yourself. BTW, I believe the Haleakala Dairy stuff is now made in Texas.

    1. how about heading out to gardena/carson/south bay where there is a larger hawaiian community. you may also want to request it from the manager of your local market, sometimes they do listen to us...

      1. I've seen cans and smaller bottles of it at some Asian markets. There's one on Sawtelle-- not Nijiya, but the one closer to the Giant Robots-- that seems to h ave the largest variety I've seen thus far...

        1. They serve it at a little Hawaiian restaurant in Mar Vista called Rutt's Cafe. They might be able to point you to a place to buy it.
