About this Gift Set:
Wai Meli - Eucalyptus Blossom Honey
Eucalyptus Robusta typically blooms during September through November, making this honey a seasonal fall harvest on our island. When the nectar is foraged from a single floral source such as this one, the honey has a wonderfully rich brown and amber color, very smooth texture, and an intense flavor reminiscent of the robust trees from which it is derived. This honey has flavor notes of butterscotch, creme brûlée or caramelized sugar. This varietal is sure to delight your senses!
Manoa Chocolate - Chocolate Bar
Mānoa Chocolate is a Hawai'i based Chocolate Maker who sources Hawaiian cacao whenever possible. Similar to Wine Makers who buy grapes and turn them into wine, Chocolate Makers buy cacao and turn them into chocolate. Whenever there is available Hawaiian cacao supply, Mānoa Chocolate sources from local farms and turns the raw cacao into premium grade chocolate. Founded in 2010 by bootstrapped college students, Mānoa Chocolate is now the largest Chocolate Maker in the state, and in the top ten of the larger bean-to-bar craft chocolate in the entire U.S.
ʻUlu Chips - Sweet Potato
ʻUlu chips are created in Honolulu with locally grown ʻulu (breadfruit). This starchy fruit was brought here by the Polynesians hundreds of years ago and has been a staple in the Hawaiian diet ever since. ʻUlu Mana takes this delicious fruit that is high in vitamins and fiber, slices it thin, and cooks it in healthy coconut oil.
Kaimana Fish Jerky - Teriyaki
The Rooster and Tuna meet to make a seriously spicy jerky. This is the only tuna jerky officially sanctioned by Huy Fong Foods, creators of the original Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce (aka Rooster Sauce).
