Aunty and the formerly Famous Amos
A fun quick post about people you meet at Costco. Aunty took a celebrity shot with Wally Amos who used to be known as Famous Amos and then of subsequent Uncle No Name fame. He is still Mr. Aloha – and his cookies (now called Cookie Kahuna) reflect it for they are “Baked with Aloha”.
Back in the 70’s and 80’s, Famous Amos was famous. He came to Hawaii in 1977. Aunty used to like the Famous Amos cookies and enjoyed going to events at Kapiolani Park sponsored by him. His name and face were everywhere, always with a smile, kazoos, and loud aloha shirts.
It was very nice to meet this famous cookie man during Costco’s black Friday sale. Aunty even scored a kazoo from him!
