Mikey’s Favorites Golden Flakes (Shortbread Cornflakes) Cookies
Every once in a while a locally-made treat comes along that’s truly special. Well, Mikey’s Golden Flakes (Shortbread Cornflakes) cookies, made right here in Honolulu, are just that. Actually, they’re AWESOME! By far one of the best cookies I’ve ever tasted. Honestly.
Buttery-sweet, very crispy, with an added dimension of flavor and texture offered by the cornflakes that are speckled on the bottom and top of each cookie. Add a glass of cold milk to dip them in and you’ve got the perfect after-work or school snack.
Along with their popular Golden Flakes cookie, Mikey’s Favorites also offers a few other varieties such as Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chip with Macadamia Nut, Chocolate Chip with Walnut, Macadamia Nut, Peanut Butter (also very popular), Pineapple Coconut, Rainbow Delight (Candy Sprinkles), Shortbread and Almond Cookies… most of which are in the Shortbread style, so they’re all very crispy, sweet and buttery rich. Yum!

Mikey’s Favorites are manufactured in a shop tucked away in an industrial backgroad off of Waikamilo Rd. in Kalihi, which is where you’d need to go if you want their full selection, although few small shops such as Baldwins, Shima’s and Tamashiro Market sell select flavors in smaller bags.
Interestingly, the owner’s name is Greg Teshima, where as Mikey is actually his son’s name, hence you get why they’re named “Mikey’s Favorites”, and for good reason so… they’re my favorite cookie too!
This is how a box would come packed from their shop (that is ALOT of cookies)…

These make fantastic omiyage (gift), which in fact are how I discovered them. Give ’em a try – especially the Golden Flakes – and I bet you’ll love ’em.
