Honolulu Chocolate Co.

What began as a café in 1987 has become the largest – and perhaps finest – gourmet chocolate retailer in the state of Hawaii.

The factory is located behind its Ward Centre storefront, and chocolatiers begin work every morning at 6 a.m. – using fresh heavy cream and rich butter from local dairies and combing the finest Belgium and French chocolates. All chocolates are hand made with wholesome ingredients and contain no preservatives.

The company produces more than 100 items – including chocolates and truffles, as well as chocolate-dipped fruits, macadamia nuts, and even Oreos! In addition to their own products, the store also sources other high-quality gourmet brands.
