KHON2’s Wake Up 2day and Living808 present a special series from the Island of Hawaii. Taizo Braden went exploring and found the joys of a staycation on Hawaii’s largest island.

Maebo Noodle Factory in Hilo is known worldwide for its signature One-Ton Chips.

The company began in 1950 by making saimin. Rachel Maebo says it wasn’t until her mother-in-law added sugar to their won-ton pi that the now-famous One-Ton Chips were born.

In 2009, the factory started making cookies, which include actual One-Ton Chips in the batter.

Maebo Noodle Factory is located at 2036 Kilauea Avenue. For more information, call (808) 960-0067.
