Manoa Ninole Bar

Manoa Ninole chocolate bar.  Fig and balsamic notes. Earthy finish that circles around to the lovely acidic balsamic notes after a while. Be patient while you wait for it!   Smooth creamy texture and even melt helped by a bit of cocoa butter.  Nīnole Hawai’i origin cacao in north east part of the island.
