To savor the most complete cacao experience, try the Triple Cacao bar, a 70% cacao, limited edition Hamakua bar, from Madre Chocolate (Hawaii). In the capable hands of Madre chocolate makers, the cacao fruit, cacao bean, and finished chocolate are blended together to form a delicious bar.

The previous, award-winning version of this Triple Cacao bar (shown at left) used some beans from the Dominican Republic. While both bars were made in Hawaii, this latest version was made from all Hawaiian cacao, and was wonderfully flavorful.

Today was Day #7 of Chocolate and Hawaii Theme Week.

These Kona Coffee chocolate pieces were made be MacFarms of Hawaii (Captain Cook, HI), using 100 percent Hawaii Grown Macadamia Nuts. I could not taste much of the Kona Coffee, but these chocolate covered macadamia nuts were good, regardless -- especially after a hike in the mountains. It may not have been Hawaii, but the mountains and water were beautiful all the same.

More walks = more chocolate.
