Honoka’a Chocolate Co. references cacao as the raw and unrefined bean from the cacao tree prior to any processing or roasting. Once the cacao has been roasted, cracked, and winnowed, it takes the form of ‘nibs’ which are then used to make our unique Hawaiian chocolate.
The very first milk chocolate bar crafted here at Honoka’a Chocolate Co. was carefully developed based on feedback and requests from our loyal customers. We chose to create a Goat Milk Chocolate Bar and began production in June of 2020.
Can you believe it? We've won an award for our Goat Milk 55% bar! A Silver Medal in the Chocolate Alliance awards, and out of 400 entries in this category!...
Thanks to all of you who have supported us in the past and present, we’ve come to a crossroads in our ability to meet our production to fulfill sales. We just can’t produce enough chocolate!
