Welcome to Day #14 of Chocolate and Hawaii Theme Weeks.

Today's 100% Hawaiian Cacao bar was from Lonohana Estate Chocolate, LLC (Honolulu, HI), offering high-quality, tree-to-bar chocolate.

Made in Hawaii from cacao that was planted, grown, harvested and dried in Hawaii, this 100% Hawaiian cacao bar was a great blend of creamy and crunchy, pure single origin chocolate goodness. There's something to be said for being a vertically-integrated operation, although I'm sure there is more work involved. Wearing multiple hats as cacao grower, fermenter/chemist and chocolate maker (and chocolate educator) is likely satisfying and, at times, exhausting.

Today's bar had balanced, pure "true" chocolate flavor (chocolate brownie, enhanced by crunchy, cocoa nibs) and light caramel, fermented and fruit notes.

Note: Made in a peanut-free environment; soy and gluten free.
