Why Hawaii?

Hawaii is the only state in the United States that grows cocoa, due to its climate and location near the Equator. Some of the most expensive cocoa in the world comes from Hawaii, and the farms are tightly managed in contrast to other cocoa farms across the world.

Dandelion first sourced beans from Hawaii in 2020, and has since been developing relationships with several local farms and chocolate makers since. On your trip, you’ll get to visit these farms and meet the people responsible for providing some of the chocolate you love at Dandelion.
