2018 Good Food Award Winner!
I met Susan Bassett, owner of Mauna Kea Cacao, while judging raw beans at the Big Island Chocolate Festival in Hawaii. She produced some of the highest scoring cacao. After visiting her farm I ordered enough beans to make one batch that turned out wonderful so we submitted it to the Good Food Awards. In January 2018 we were awarded with a Good Food Award and started working on another batch of chocolate. Here's to continuing our partnership with Mauna Kea Cacao! Please enjoy this single estate, grown in America, 70% dark chocolate.
Ingredients: Organic cocoa beans, organic cane sugar, organic cocoa butter.
Allergy Information: May contain traces of peanuts, three nuts, wheat and milk products due to shared equipment. Soy free. Vegan.
We were recently in Hawaii and toured the Mauna Kea cacao farm where the cacao for this chocolate bar is grown. It was such fun to be able to enjoy the "fruits of their labor"! Maverick has done a great job highlighting their Hawaiian cacao.
I really enjoyed this chocolate. It is the best tasting dark chocolate. It is also healthier as it does not have much sugar. I really like that they use cacao from the Mauna Kea Cacao farm on the Big Island of Hawaii.
Big Island Hawaii 70% Dark Chocolate
After touring Mauna Kea Cacao farm on the Big Island of Hawaii, we ordered chocolate bars from Maverick, as they use the beans from this farm to make their Big Island Chocolate. It is truly exceptional and worth every penny! It arrived in perfect condition with cold packs that were still cold. The only warning I have is that once you try it, all other chocolate will seem subpar.
I am totally spoiled! Cannot eat (almost) any other chocolate other than the Delicious Belize…. Thank you for my monthly delivery and for the lovely thoughtful thank you note you write every time.
