Hats off to the Mauna Loa company! Amazing work defining the chocolate experience in Hawaii. Our only regret is that you sell this same product in Arizona.
Let us explain: One of the great things about traveling to Europe is the chocolate, it does not just taste better there, it is better there. It is made with less wax for one thing. We are not bashing the American companies for how they make chocolate. We understand that with the higher temperatures in the States (120 degrees in Arizona at times) that for the chocolate to not melt in transit that you need to add more wax. We Giants have brought home European chocolate only to find we need to store it in the refrigerator to keep it from melting and reshaping each time it hardens. We understand that European brands are sold State Side – they are not the same, really they are not. Brands like Cadbury are produced by Hershey’s for US sales. There are some stores where you can get real European chocolate but not like there are Arizona stores that you can get Mauna Loa. It takes work to find real European, and the good people from Mauna Loa offer product at Target and Walmart and other many fine retailers near you.
While the Goodman Giants were in Hawaii we consumed many chocolate covered macadamias produced by the the Mauna Loa company and we loved it! Sadly it was not as special because we also eat these at home. There are so many flavors and choices that we all would look like real giants if we digested these to our hearts’ content. Choose the flavor that sounds appealing, and we know you will love it.
Milk chocolate rating:
Trust that if we rated each type that they would have gotten simiar scores based on the bias of the different Giants. It is not as if those that don’t like dark chocolate will magically start enjoying the flavor if a nut is dipped in it.
*Disclaimer: American chocolate will also melt in the Arizona heat.
