Some people prefer dark for its slightly more bitter taste and its associated health benefits (you can find more about the health benefits of dark chocolate here). Some prefer milk for it’s sweeter taste, and some prefer white for it’s combination of sweet and creamy.

So when it comes to choosing your holiday sweets, there is only one thing left to decide. Do you prefer milk, dark or white chocolate?

You can also find our Atebara Crunch Chocolates in our Holiday Gift Baskets.

Hawaii Island Gourmet at Hilo Trading Comany

 

Hawaii Island Gourmet and Atebara is known for its potato chipstaro chips and sweet potato chips. We have been making healthy chips (using only three ingredients: potatoes or taro, salt and canola oil) since 1936. Our chips are kitchen cooked and handmade. To keep them as healthy as possible, we use a special spinning process to remove any extra oil.

This weekend, however, we were at the grand opening of the Hilo Trading Company sampling our hand-made, Hawaii Island Gourmet chocolates. The event was a success with local companies coming from all over the greater Hilo area to promote their products. Whether it be chocolates, chips, macadamia nuts, or coffee; The Hilo Trading Company is a one stop shop for products made in Hilo, Hawaii.

To make our chocolates special, we incorporate our potato chips and taro chips right into the chocolate. You get a unique mixture of melt in your mouth creaminess mixed with a tasty crunch. A taste that you can only get from Hawaiian Island Gourmet Products.

You can also come by our store. The address and contact information is listed on our contact page here: Hawaii Island Gourmet. We look forward to seeing you soon.
