Chocolate, grown and made in Hawaii and off to Kona we went to explore the Original Hawaiian Chocolate Factory.  Over 1400 cacao trees bear vibrant pods and are harvested every 2 weeks. Through a detailed process, and much done by hand, the beans are dried in the sun to develop flavors.

After tempering, chocolate is poured into molds and milk, dark and special Criollo chocolates are ready for sale.  There’s no blending of chocolates or artificial ingredients to alter the “food of the Gods”.   Pam and Bob Cooper started the factory 18 years ago in their retirement years and chocolate has kept them young.
