Update #17

February is for CHOCOLATE CLUB!

1 comment

Aloha Kickstarter Chocolate Enthusiasts,

February marks the last delivery date of our Kickstarter chocolate. This month also marks the first month of our Kickstarter Chocolate Club! So for all those who pledged at this lovely level, you should be receiving your first bar within the next few days...HORRAY!

The first bar we've decided to share is one we began to put together specifically for Kickstarter, our Hamakua Hawaiian Crown 60% Ghost Pepper infused chocolate with Hawaiian Crown Sweet Gold Pineapple....yes it's a mouthful ;) This bar, is a wonderful ALL HAWAIIAN Beauty, with chocolate grown from the 5 acre Hawaiian Crown estate in Hamakua; a bountiful coastline on the Northeast side of the Big Island. The pineapple is also from Hawaiian Crown and grown on our very own island of Oahu. The devilishly sneaky ghost pepper, which are famed as being the spiciest pepper in the world, are grown in our very own backyard. Don't worry, we're not gonna make you run for the carton of milk on this bar, the pairing of the pineapple and chili pepper make for a delightful sweet and spicy combination that leaves a playful tingle after it melts in your mouth. Trust us..it's a top seller and fan favorite! 

All other pledge levels have been sent out at this time. If you haven't received your chocolate yet please let us know so we can track it down or the postman/woman who made off with it. We and our Oompa Loompas thank ALL of you again for making this Hawaiian Chocolate Dream possible, there is still a lot of work to be done to eventually bring Hawaiian chocolate to the world stage but it is an adventure we plan to take. So keep posted, Hawaiian Chocolate is here to stay and will be hitting shelves near you soon! So stay tuned here or on our Facebook, Twitter and website. As always, 

Your Friends in Delicious Handmade Hawaiian Chocolate,

The Manoa Chocolate Team

Thank you ALL who came out to our first KICKSTARTER Wine and Chocolate Pairing last night. It was fun sharing the world of Manoa Chocolate with you and meeting so many amazing local foodies. I think we can all say we eat a lot of good food in Hawaii...

Looking forward to seeing everyone again and keeping you in the loop with our NEWEST flavors and Origins. Thanks again for making this all possible. We've still got one more to go!

ALOHA!

Update #14

For all those at the $10 Backer Level

Your chocolate flies!

We recently put into development an Oompa Loompa jet pack system so that we could hand deliver all your chocolate. With many trails and few errors the Oompa Loompa flight program has been a HUGE success. So stay on the lookout for the envelopes posted below, our Oompa Loompas have been flying around all week delivering your individual bars of chocolate. Their travels have taken them everywhere from Pullman, Washington to Sweden and even the Jungles of BRAZIL! Manoa Chocolate is all over the world thanks to your generous support...and patience. Thanks again.

Other backer levels, your chocolate is being packed as you read this, awaiting the next wave of flying Oompas.

ALOHA!
