Welcome to Day #1 of Chocolate and Hawaii Theme Week.

Today's Onomea Chocolate Salted Macadamia Nut (bar) was made by Lonohana Estate Chocolate (Honolulu, HI). 

Aroma notes included: chocolate with very light fruit fermentation notes (at least when the sealed package was initially opened) and faint salted nuts (macadamia).

Flavor notes included: smooth yet flavorful, relatively sweet dark chocolate (low in bitterness) with very faint/subtle and well-balanced fermented fruit (cacao pulp, tropical fruit (light citrus, pineapple, mango)) notes. These faint, authentic fruit notes paired well with the sea salted macadamia nut pieces. 

It was great to kick-off the New Year (2024)--and a Hawaiian Chocolate Theme Week--with a chocolate that has a great Island origin story. The cacao, sea salt and mac nuts: all grown in Hawaii. 

Thank you to Lonohana founder, chocolate maker and farmer, Seneca Klassen, for continuing to create and share great Hawaiian cacao with chocolate lovers everywhere. Onomea is a relatively new(er) chocolate brand/partnership. (Loved the fun island flavors and graphic designs on these bars.)

Ingredients: "Organic cane sugar, Hawaiian cacao, organic cocoa butter, organic Hawaiian macadamia nuts, Hawaiian sea salt"

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