I decided to extend Chocolate and Coconut Theme Week a few days, until we leave Hawaii. There are too many great coconut-related chocolates, tropical fruits and other great items available at road stands and small markets.

Yesterday, we found one such road stand/market: the Nahiku Market Place, on the road to Hana, in Maui. The market was made up of a few informal vendor stands in the middle of a lush, green tropical jungle. A small cafe hut served beverages, and also carried Wow-Wee chocolate bars. This slightly soft, fudgy, Dark Chocolate Hawaiian Coconut bar paired nicely with some fresh oven-roasted coconut candy from another vendor, and a stir-fry fish, vegetable and steamed rice dish from a chef working out of a trailer.

Note: Posts and pictures may be delayed due to travel this week.
