One of our main aspirations at Garden Island Chocolate is education.
Chocolate is a true superfood, containing the three essential components of food: protein, carbohydrates, and fat. Garden Island Chocolate uses a stone melanger to grind the beans preserving the medicinal properties. Consequently Hawaiian chocolate retains extremely high levels of flavonols (antioxidants), theobromine, phenylethylamine, and anandamide. Garden Island Chocolate is uniquely Hawaiian distinguished by the local soil and pristine environment that brings out the best chocolate flavor possible.
We host many Kauai school groups on educational field trips, we plant cacao trees at local school gardens, we provide a plethora of information to visitors to Kauai, we talk to folks about local chocolate at the weekly Waipa farmers market and we offer our fascinating and fun chocolate farm tours.
We are cultivating chocolate connoisseurs.
