Yesterday I tasted Manoa Chocolate's "Breakfast Bar" that was made with roasted coffee beans and cacao nibs in Hawaii. Manoa (meaning thick, solid or depth) is a bean-to-bar chocolate company based in Oahu, Hawaii.
Today I snacked on a close cousin of the Breakfast Bar -- another Manoa 60% cacao dark milk chocolate bar with coffee beans and nibs, only this cacao came from Ecuador rather than the Dominican Republic.
Both bars were dark, hearty and crunchy; however, I found this bar to be a bit nuttier and smoother tasting.
I also made a chocolate sundae with caramel and black mission fig sauce and a liberal sprinkling of chopped Manoa Chocolate Ecuador bar.
Today was Day #11 of Chocolate, Figs and Coffee Theme Week, and Day #2 of Chocolate and Hawaii Theme Week.
