The 5th Annual Chocolate Chocolate!, is from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 30, at the Buy Local Block Party hosted by the North Kohala Merchants Associate.
Hawaii has innovative growers who cultivate thousands of brightly colored red and yellow cacao pods every year and creative chocolatiers who turn the beans held in those pods into delicious chocolate products. To celebrate Hawaii growers and chocolatier’s accomplishments, One Island’s sustainable living program hosts Chocolate Chocolate! as a fun and festive farmer and artisan-to- consumer direct tasting experience.
Adding to the chocolate wonders, the Kava Kafe will be hosting a delicious chocolate Mole Enchilada dinner plate and locally made fudges and raw chocolate products available from the Kohala Coffee Mill and the Sweet Potato Cafe. Find great holiday gifts at Chocolate Chocolate! in front of the Kohala Coffee Mill in the heart of Hawi. Tasting tickets are available online at www.oneisland.org.
