Big Island local foods

We're coming to the Big Island in 10 days, staying at the Four Seasons. We may well not do a lot of eating off property, so I'm not looking for specific restaurant suggestions, but no matter where we eat, what are some local ingredients and dishes that we should look for?

I've already got on my list:
Ohelo berry jam
poha berry jam
spam musubi (sushi)
poke
kiawe honey (do I remember this from a previous visit?)
lilikoi jam (other lilikoi products, like honey?)
malasadas
shave ice

What else is unique and great? We'll try pretty much anything (once....)!
