The Sweetest Road Trip in Hawaii Takes You To 8 Charming Chocolate Shops
Chocolate can either cheer you up after a bad day or help you celebrate life’s happiest moments. Either way, I’d like to think that chocolate is an entirely necessary part of life. Luckily for us, Hawaii is the only state in America to grow cacao, and as a result, our beautiful islands are home to some of the country’s greatest chocolatiers. Many of these chocolate shops are found right here on Oahu, and today, we’re visiting eight of our favorites on one of the sweetest road trips ever created.
With less than two hours of drive time, consider your sweet tooth satisfied. Our 44-mile journey begins in Honolulu before heading further into Waikiki, trekking across the island to Kailua on the Pali Highway, and looping back to Aiea via the H3. There’s simply no sweeter way to spend your next day off.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
