Waialua Hot Chocolate, Blue Hawaii Lifestyle, Ala Moana Center and downtown Honolulu
Derek Lanter of Waialua Chocolate adds his secret kick of spice to the local hot chocolate at Blue Hawaii Lifestyle
It's bitter cold out there—by Honolulu standards anyway. Overnight lows in the 60s? Break out the boots and mittens. At least close the bedroom windows.
There's no better antidote to winter's chill than something hot, rich and sweet with a kick. And, to top it all off, you'll want the joys of eating local.
The hot chocolate at Blue Hawaii Lifestyle is now made with Waialua Chocolate, grown in the rich soil and ample sunshine of Oahu's North Shore.
Blue Hawaii doesn't add a little chocolate flavor. It chops a 30-gram Waialua chocolate bar and whisks into hot milk. Plus, there's just a little pinch of hot pepper, which makes it all come alive.
Hot pepper? That's the Aztecs drank theirs, and they invented hot chocolate.
It's the perfect $6 wintertime prescription. Available on the go both downtown and in Ala Moana Center.
