Aloha, welcome to Day #22 of Chocolate and Hawaii Theme Week(s). 

Today's Cashew and Sea Salt 70% Dark Chocolate (bar) was from Puna Chocolate Company (Kailua-Kona, HI). The family-owned company uses Hawaiian chocolate and coffee to craft their bars and beverages.

Aroma notes included: dark chocolate (brownie with balanced, very faint earth, bread/salted cracker, green and oxalis); and gentle sweet nut (cashew).

Texture: hearty dark chocolate and softly crunchy cashew pieces

Flavor notes included: rich chocolate-y flavor (dark brownie) and salted cashew nut pieces. 

What I liked about this bar: 1.) the choice of this particular Hawaiian cacao/dark chocolate; 2.) the delicious, rich (slightly addicting) blend of dark chocolate and salted cashews; and 3.) the fact that this bar was not overly sweet.

Ingredients: Hawaiian Cacao Beans, Organic Cane Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Roasted Cashews, Alaea Hawaiian Sea Salt

Allergen-related information: Contains cashews. "Manufactured in a Facility That Also Processes Milk, Peanuts, Tree Nuts"
