In Hawaiian, “kahu” (v.) originally referred to taking care of an oven. In time, it became a term for taking care of anything. So, a basic translation of “kahuna” (n.) would be, “a caretaker.” Wally Amos, the Cookie Kahuna, is caretaker of the original recipe, caretaker of the oven, and CARETAKER OF THE TASTE. His first name is Wally.
Caretaker of the Taste Since 1975
When he opened the world’s first gourmet cookie store in Los Angeles, Wally Amos declared that all products be HANDMADE from the finest, PURE INGREDIENTS. The taste became renowned. Then Wally famously lost his company. Subsequent corporations changed the ingredients, and the ORIGINAL RECIPE seemed lost. But people remembered the TASTE. Now it is back under Wally’s new brand name, The Cookie Kahuna!
