Ha’anin Minagof - " A Day of Happiness"
As we have done in the past, the net proceeds of the event will be donated to the Villages of Inalahan and Talofofo for their community improvement fund.
Join us in Celebration!
As a way to say thank you to the people of Guam for staying strong and sending a message to our international travel partners that we are ready to welcome them, we in Southern Guam want to invite all of you to an event similar to our past river festivals featuring our local artists, farmers, and entertainers to showcase themselves after this long drought brought about by the Pandemic.

Pre-packaged ice pops made in Guam. We are an official Guam Product Seal member.
Hafa Adai! We are Pacific Island Månnge Pops, Guam’s first local ice pop company established in 2015. Back then, we noticed that there were no frozen treats that were truly locally-made so we started a small business with the goal of making the most delicious ice pops on the island. All of our pops are made by hand in small batches at Hamamoto Tropical Fruit World in Windward Hills, Yona. We always source our ingredients from local businesses and farms—Including our own! Our flavors are refreshing, original, and gourmet. Absolutely no artificial flavors, colors, chemicals, or preservatives are used. Thank you for supporting our local farmers and our family business. Have a Månnge Day! We are available at all Foody’s Shell Gas Stations, Two Lovers’ Point, select hotels in Tumon, and Coffee Slut in Hagåtña. Our Ice Pop Flavors: Strawberry Calamansi, Calamansi Mint, Soursop Strawberry, Ripe Mango, Pineapple Strawberry, Mango Strawberry, Coconut Candy, Lychee Coconut, Ube, Avocado Cream (seasonal), Green Mango (seasonal), Watermelon Sea Salt, and Nutella Banana.
Coconut Candy - Traditional, Chocolate, and Mango Flavors
Here at The Coconut Tree Company, we strive to create a modern twist on a classic CHamoru household recipe. Every piece of our gourmet coconut candy is shaped and packaged thoughtfully by hand. We aim to share the island’s taste and cultural experience through our assorted, sweet flavors. From our kitchen to beyond The Coconut Tree Company’s doors, our confections keep tradition alive.
