People like to ask where the name "Pineapple Kitchen" came from? Pineapple Kitchen was born out of a desire to show hospitality to family and friends, especially when it comes to food! The pineapple is the universal sign of hospitality, so it was natural to pair it with our love of good food. At Pineapple Kitchen we have created all-natural products to serve at your next party, which will surely make your guests feel welcome.
