Today I continued the Hawaii/Islands Theme Week that I started yesterday with a Passion Fruit dark bar from Madre Chocolate (Honolulu, HI).
Made from Big Island Hawai'i cacao beans and passion fruit, the bar had a rich, dark chocolate base, with faint earth and coffee notes, paired with the slightly acidic taste of dried passion fruit bits. It was an interesting mix, perhaps not for everyone; but it grew on me. It was lovely to taste some chocolate grown in Hawaii -- the only U.S. state where (as far as I know) it's possible to grow cacao outdoors.
