Recently at Aloha Pokē Co headquarters, we were having a deep discusion on how we super dig pineapples and love packin’ bowls with them! Their sweet, juicy flavor is a nice sidekick to our good friend the jalapeño. You can find this dynamic duo in our ‘Aloha’ house bowl. But the pineapple is more than just a deliciously kushy, exotic fruit. They can symbolize hospitality and friendship. And that is what Aloha Pokē Co. is all about. 😌🍍💕 Pineapples have come a long way and we are a proud supporter of what they represent and their delicious taste!
Since the late 1400’s, pineapples have been placed on the exterior of homes and porches signifying a welcoming, open door to strangers. When hostesses would set a pineapple in the middle of their tables, which symbolized the warmest welcome extended to their guests. To this day, the pineapple is still a prominent symbol of hospitality in the restaurant industry. Aloha Pokē is full of tropical, good vibes and we strive to bring our guests the best and most welcoming experience at our shops. You’ll always have a spot at our table 😊🤘🏼 Keep reading to learn how pineapples can sometimes be a little bit too welcoming…
If you ever find yourself buying a pineapple at the grocery store, you might want to avoid putting it upside down in your shopping cart…😳 Little did we know that another meaning for the pineapple is ‘swinging.’ If that’s what you’re into, no judgement here. Aloha Pokē believes everyone should pokē who they want and pokē responsibly. If you really are curious about “extracurricular activities,” you can also put a pineapple on your front porch. Very welcoming, right? 😉 So if you’re nervous about where you’re putting your pineapples, just keep packin’ them in your pokē bowls to be on the safe side. No extra meaning there besides deliciousness! 🍍💕
