  1. Wait, chocolate is NOT a vegetable?! ๐Ÿ˜› This is awesome — my family is from Hawaii (Oahu though) but I’ve never done anything like this there. Next time I’m exploring other islands I’ll be sure to check it out. Thanks for sharing!

      I don’t know…it DOES grow on a tree so in my book it technically qualifies. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Actually with a seed inside, doesn’t that make it a fruit? In any event, I’m sure we all agree it is a REALLY important food group, right?

    I had NO IDEA chocolate pod thingys grew on trees. What a cool experience. Definitely a great family activity.

      It is weird that they are just stuck on the tree without a stem of some sort! I was surprised at how colorful they were! So chocolate is delicious AND pretty to grow!!

    This reminds me of when I went on a coffee tour in panama. It’s so crazy when you realize how some of the things we consume are actually made. I learned a lot from this post! Now, i want chocolate!

      I hear coffee tours can be really interesting, too. The weirdest I’ve heard of was a cat poop coffee? EEEK! LOL! I’m not into coffee THAT much. ๐Ÿ™‚

    My dad is a chocolateer by hobby and he sometimes sources his chocolate from Hawaii! As you said, its extremely high quality and generally very sustainably sourced. Thank you for the info ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have never done a chocolate farm tour, but it sounds like my kind of thing. I have seen the Cocoa pods and tried it, when I was in indonesia, it was awful!! I would love to try the finished product, though being from the UK I am used to chocolate tasting a certain way, so it would be interesting to see if I liked it ๐Ÿ™‚

    That white gunk tastes amazing. That gecko really knows what he is doing! Sounds like a very interesting trip. Thank you for sharing.

    • NatalieTanner says:

      It looks pretty gross, though, doesn’t it? LOL! I wonder who was the brave soul to try it out for the first time!

  7. I almost did this when I was last in Hawaii but got lost somewhere between a cocktails and lounging by the pool. I’m sorry I missed it now. I’ll be sure and visit next time.
