Awesome eats: Valentine’s Day pop-up with Choco lea


From deep in the heart of Manoa Valley, Choco lea arrived downtown as one our first Awesome eats pop-ups last year, and chocolate lovers gobbled them up. Now they’re back with two special boxes of locally made artisan chocolates to celebrate the day of love.

Sweet lovers, mark your calendars for Tuesday, Feb. 14. Choco lea’s creme de la creme gift box has 20 hand-crafted truffles in assorted special flavors (see below), or go nuts over or a half-pound box of their new strawberry almond mac nut bark and red velvet white chocolate macadamia nut clusters.

Warning: Only 50 of each kind will be available for pre-order, so reserve early!
