Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate and Hawaii Theme Week.

Today's Onomea Chocolate "Passion Orange Guava" (bar) was made by Lonohana Estate Chocolate (Honolulu, HI).

Aroma notes included: dark milk chocolate and subtle tropical fruits (passion fruit, citrus (orange), guava, and very faint and (probably imagined) mangosteen and pineapple).

Flavor notes included: flavorful, relatively sweet dark milk chocolate (low in bitterness) with tropical authentic fruit notes (passion fruit, warm sweet citrus (orange), guava). Dried fruits (and orange oil) were ground/incorporated into the chocolate, leaving a very fine fruit graininess in the texture, but leaving the pleasing fruit flavors relatively intact. Organic milk powder added a little creamy richness and also softened the tart sweetness (acidity) of the fruits.

Today's bar was an homage to POG (passion fruit, orange and guava). I have fond memories of this popular Hawaiian juice, enjoyed during vacations there.

Lonohana founder, chocolate maker and farmer, Seneca Klassen, continues to create and bring great Hawaiian cacao, single origin chocolate--and chocolate with Hawaiian flavors--to chocolate lovers around the globe. 

Onomea is a relatively new(er) chocolate brand/partnership. (Loved the island flavor inclusions and colorful art work(s)* on the packaging.)

Ingredients: "Organic cane sugar, Hawaiian cacao, organic cocoa butter, organic whole milk powder, dried guava, dried lilikoi (passion fruit), Hawaiian vanilla, orange essential oil"

Allergen-related information: Contains milk. "Produced in a peanut-free environment on equipment that also processes milk and tree nuts."

*The front label art for this bar was titled "Kamokuna" by local Hawaiian artist, Kate Wadsworth.
