Raaka Cacao 100%
Forget everything you think about 100% bars. This pure cacao bar is creamy and bright, not bitter, with a subtle, tingling fruity sweetness.
Tasting notes: Bright & Fruity
OmNom Milk of Madagascar 45%
The Madagascar bean was OmNom's first love, so it was clear to them that they needed to see what it would taste like as milk chocolate. The red berries stood out so much they even considered for a while to name the bar "Red Milk."
Tasting notes: Floral & Red Berries
Amano Macoris 70%
Tasting notes: Apricot, Caramel, Brown Sugar & Cream

Akesson's Brazil Forastero 75%
Grown on a historical Brazilian plantation, Forastero cacao's astonishing warm aroma is balanced with tart notes of the native pitanga fruit in 75% dark chocolate. The Pitanga fruit, also known as the 'Brazilian cherry', looks like a small pumpkin and has a sharp and sweet taste. Parasinho's Forestero cacao is the only variety grown on this Fazenda Sempre Firme plantation. Grown amid a forest with the highest biodiversity on earth, this exceptional cacao is distinctly Brazilian.
Tasting notes: Earthy, Tobacco, Brazilian Pitanga Fruit, Tart & Autumn Spices
Manoa Haupia Coconut Vegan Milk Chocolate 60%
This inclusion bar features vibrant artwork by local artist Shar Tuiasoa of Punky Aloha, and delicate molding inspired by Polynesian tattoo patterns. Together with historical tidbits about each inclusion ingredient, the complete package of flavor, art, and culture creates three bars that do more than taste good: this is chocolate with a sense of place. A fruit brought by Polynesian settlers, on their long voyage to Hawaii coconut is known as one of the canoe plants - crops essential for island living The Hawaiian word for coconut is niu, but the title of this bar Haupia refers to the popular Hawaiian dessert made using the white meat of the coconut fruit.
Tasting notes: Tropical Fruit & Coconut
Raaka Pink Sea Salt 71%
A fruity, complex salted dark chocolate to end all salted dark chocolates. Made with single-origin cacao from Zorzal Cacao, a farm and fermentary within a bird sanctuary in the Dominican Republic, and sprinkled with Peruvian pink salt sourced from Salt of The Earth Co. We think New York Magazine said it best: this bar has a “deep, dark, mysterious flavor with hints of cherry; and a finish as long as a David Foster Wallace footnote.”
Tasting notes: Earthy & Cherry
