Garden Island Chocolate is the premier gourmet Hawaiian Chocolate company.  Our locally grown cacao infused with the flavors of Kaua‘i and the Big Island of Hawaii, produces some of the finest chocolate in the world. We make organic dark chocolate bars,(85% cacao) chocolate truffles and a healthy traditional hot chocolate drink. We have guided chocolate farm tours and tastings every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 9:30 am. The tours are very popular so book in advance at www.gardenislandchocolate.com The all-you-can-eat chocolate experience is 3 hours so come hungry. We not only sample 20 different types of chocolate including a fresh made chocolate drink, but a plethora of exotic tropical fruits. It is very educational and hands on where visitors lean all about how to grow, process and make chocolate.We are located in Kilauea on the North Shore of Kauai. Just look for “The Chocolate Shack” next to Banana Joe’s fruit stand.Mahalo for helping us to sustain and support local agriculture, and in turn a healthy and happy community. We use only organic practices and believe in sustainable permaculture to reconnect people back into the land. On the chocolate tour and tasting we encourage a deeper appreciation of this magical superfood. Bite any square of fine dark chocolate, and try to describe the aromas and flavors, not just whether you like it or not. You might not be able to find the words to describe it. Chocolate has over 400 distinct flavors. Aromas live within us, becoming an integral part of our senses, creating new memories of pleasure and satisfaction. Try to find associations with the world around you. When you taste, close your eyes and think, ‘What does this remind me of?’ Paradise…
