The coconut milk flavor in this bar was very authentic. I ate this bar with a handful of toasted almonds and the two paired nicely.

The tagline printed on this organic chocolate bar wrapper invites the customer to "Taste the Aloha." Yes, I would be happy to support local Kauai local agriculture and community, thank you. Garden Island Chocolate Co. is fortunate to be able to work with a cooperative of farmers, involved in raising and propagating their own cacao trees. And "all processing of the chocolate (including stone-grinding of cacao in a melanger) from the bean to the finished bar is done on Kauai."

Thank you to Alec who brought a few of these Kauai Chocolate bars back from a recent trip to Hawaii.
