Oahu food( Betty Shimabukuro )
Hawaiian chocolate: Many local companies make fancy chocolate candies, but only two use pure Hawaiian-grown chocolate -- Original Hawaiian Chocolate Factory and Waialua Chocolate. Cocoa content on both is high -- 60% to 70% for the dark chocolates. You'll have to seek out a specialty shop. Go to www.originalhawaiianchocolatefactory.com for locations.
For Waialua Chocolate, visit the Dole Plantation on Oahu's North Shore ( www.dole-plantation.com).
Betty Shimabukuro is the food editor for the Honolulu Star-Bulletin. Her second cookbook, "What Hawaii Likes to Eat," was released last month.
