Who said a chocolate bar doesn't go great first thing in the morning? Our Breakfast Bar is sprinkled with a layer of roasted cacao nibs and Hawaiian grown Kona coffee. The addition of nibs on the back of the bar add a crunch to compliment the creamy mouth feel of our dark milk chocolate.
In 2010, while studying at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, Dylan Butterbaugh made a friend who was researching the potential success of growing cacao in Hawaii. Shortly after, Dylan spent six months in labs at the College of Tropical Agriculture learning the processes that turn the fruit into chocolate. When the chocolate industry in Hawaii began to emerge, he identified a need for local processors and launched Manoa Chocolate.
Mānoa Chocolate is a bean-to-bar chocolate factory focused on producing quality dark chocolate in Kailua, O‘ahu. Since 2010, their goal is to showcase the unique flavors and characteristics of cacao through direct trade of single origin beans from around the world and across the Hawaiian Islands.
