Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate and Hawaii Theme Week.

Today's Onomea Chocolate "Lime in the Coconut" (bar) was made by Lonohana Estate Chocolate, LLC (Honolulu, HI). 

Aroma notes included: lime (essential oil) and chocolate.

Flavor notes included: creamy, smooth and flavorful, relatively sweet dark chocolate (low in bitterness) with fresh squeezed lime and lime oil notes. The roasted coconut (completely incorporated into the chocolate) was almost undetectable; it may have been harmonizing with the lime in the background and contributing to this chocolate's silken texture and melt. 

There were also very, very faint (pleasant) wood (cedar) and very fleeting pepper notes. Not sure if this was from the lime oil, the cacao, or both together. But, I enjoyed these tidbits of tasty complexity.

Thank you to Lonohana founder, chocolate maker and farmer, Seneca Klassen, for sharing great Hawaiian cacao with 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 coconut, lime essential oil"

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

*The front label art for this bar was titled "I'm Going In" by local Hawaiian artist, Kate Wadsworth.
