Perfect gifts but bad for an airplane ride

We're going to Hawaii in a week to visit my relatives (hooray!) and have our son meet them (lovely!). It is a Japanese and Hawaiian tradition to bring gifts when you travel, usually of food. And the traditional food to bring from NYC, for decades, is a box of chocolates from Macy's. I kid you not. But in the modern age these are relegated to a dusty corner in a hard-to-find part of the department store. I would love to bring them some food items that have been made in our little corner of the world, Brooklyn. These are the items I most wish I could bring. Notice the amount of breakable glass that Murphy's Law would mean WOULD ABSOLUTELY get smashed in our luggage?
