Our Story

A Local Favorite

Say "Ed and Don's" to the island folks and you will probably be answered with a smile and a sigh as our customers fondly remember "twirling on a stool in the ice cream parlor at Ala Moana, touching the candy kitchen in Kaimuki, watching the aunties hand-dipping chocolates."

Established in 1956, Ed and Don's was named after founder Martha Maier's two sons: Edwin and Donald. The very first two retail shops opened in Moanalua and Kaimuki. By the 1960's and 70's, Ed and Don's had several parlors enriching the Islands, helping to establish the brand as the leader in gourmet, Hawaiian candies. While we no longer carry ice creams, we continue to product beautiful handmade chocolates and brittles the old fashioned way!

Our factory is still located on O'ahu. Our dedicated hands create beautiful confections the old fashioned Hawaiian way, handmade with lots of Aloha that you, your family and friends are sure to enjoy for many years to come.

Gourmet Hawaiian Confections Since 1956

Ed & Don's was founded by Martha Maier in 1956, named after her two sons, Ed and Don. After selling holiday cards, candy and cookies, it was suggested to Maier to make her own candy business and sell it year-round.
