That is the secret of their exquisite Flavor. Preferred Stock Pine
apple, for instance, is grown, ripened and canned all under the sunny
skies of Hawaii. Pineapples brought to this country and then
canned must be picked before fully ripe or they won't keep and
the flavor is flat.
Hawaiian Pineapple is the best
crown. Every morning, the ones
ripened to their "spicy best" are
gathered, taken into the cannery,
close at hand, peeled and cored by
special cutters operated by bright, tidy Hawaiian
girls. ( All the tough, fibrous center is removed, the
the ' eyes" all cut out, and the rich, sun-gold slices
packed into Preferred Stock cans just the best
part of each pineapple.
