Chocolate of the Day:

1 piece/ball
Surfin' Ass Coffee/Keoki Chocolate Factory
Keoki's Big Island Donkey Balls, Half Ass ("20 Layers of Milk, 20 Layers of Dark")
Good + - Very Good
Weight: ~ .8 oz. / 8 ounces (227 grams) in total package of ~ 10 pieces
Calories: 120 calories (estimate)
Cost: $11.95 for total package/bag
Purchased from: Lava Java (Coffee Roasters), in Kehei, on the island of Maui, in Hawaii

This (1/2 milk and 1/2 dark) chocolate flavor was good, although I liked the all-dark chocolate flavor a bit better.

These Donkey Ball chocolates came in several flavors; I bought one package of almost every flavor I could see/find to try. So, two flavors down, about 4-5 more flavors left to try I think. Thanks again to Lava Java for shipping a box of these back home. My suitcase was already bulging at that point. But I didn't want to leave Hawaii without bringing some of these home. While I wasn't able to ask anyone at Surfin' Ass/Keoki's about how they came to create Donkey Balls, I get the feeling they had fun along the way.

The packaging contains the customer-flattering statement "Chocolate People Sure Are Smart!" OK, now I don't feel so foolish about buying chocolate donkey balls.
