LONOHANA Estate Grown Chocolate Bars
We produces three unique batches of our Limited Edition chocolate bars approximately every eight weeks. No two batches are ever the same with each yielding roughly 350 bars. These bars are sold through the LONOHANA Chocolate Club, as well as at the factory and on our website.
Given our size and availability of cacao, in order to strike a balance between producing bars of the highest quality and continuing to tend the farm with care, we have created the chocolate club to be fun and delicious. We have several levels of membership available, designed to fit all levels of interest and chocolate devotion.
However many bars remain after fulfilling our members' shipments are available online and at the factory.
SUMMER SHIPPING SCHEDULE: Please note. For mainland orders we will typically ship on Monday-Wednesday so as to ensure that your chocolate is not "in transit" over the weekend. All shipments are sent USPS Priority with ice pack and insulation, all of which is recyclable and/or biodegradable.
How Does the Chocolate Club Work?
Similar to CSA (Consumer Supported Agriculture) programs, the LONOHANA Chocolate Club connects people directly with our cacao farm and factory here on O'ahu. Members receive a delivery six times per year - choosing either 1, 2 or 3 bars from each of the three batches shipped directly to their door.
In addition to pure chocolate bars, our Limited Edition bars incorporate an array of Hawaii-grown inclusions, such as cacao nibs, sea salt, fruits and spices or nuts. The ingredients change based on what we find in season, but we always aim for 100% Hawaii-grown produce. We never stop exploring delicious flavor combinations, and members get to explore the rich agricultural bounty that Hawaii has to offer.
Membership has its rewards! By becoming a member you ensure that you will never miss out on any of our Limited Edition bars. Members receive free shipping, complimentary factory tours, access to member-only chocolate offerings and discounts on any future purchases. Click here to see all membership options
Ordering Chocolate without a membership
Any bars remaining after fulfilling our member shipments are available in our online store or at the factory. Please note that quantities will fluctuate and once a Limited Edition bar sells out, we will likely not have it for sale again. Descriptions of all our bars and any available for purchase are listed here.
Oahu Locals and Island Visitors
For those of you who live here on the islands, we are pleased to offer a flat $5 shipping charge on all purchases. If you live locally, or are just visiting, we also are happy to have you visit us at the factory, where you can tour and buy direct if you desire.

All levels of membership include FREE Shipping. (excluding International)
Individual purchases have the following shipping charges: 1-3 bars = $10; 4+ bars = $15
Hawaii Residents: There is a flat $5 shipping charge for all deliveries made to Hawaii addresses.
As we are located in the tropics, chocolate is heat sensitive, and we care about the environment - we ship our bars in 100% recycled insulation with non-toxic, re-usable cool packs. Please recycle the insulation in your garden waste as it is made of non-toxic recycled bluejeans (cotton) and use the ice packs in your children's' lunches or for picnics. All other packaging is as close to 100% post-consumer recycled cardboard/packaging as we can find.
We primarily use USPS Priority 2-Day for all deliveries. We strongly suggest using a business address for shipping, so there is always someone there to accept delivery.
Annual Memberships are billed once per year. You may cancel at any time during the year, however if cancellation occurs prior to the fulfillment of the six-shipment per annual cycle, Lonohana Estate Chocolate LLC will reimburse the remaining unused portion of annual membership less $25 per shipment already delivered.
Lifetime Memberships are not transferable. Lonohana Estate Chocolate LLC is not responsible for acts of God, weather or catastrophic events, which would prevent cacao being harvested and/or chocolate produced in the future. Lonohana declares that after 3 years (36 months) from the date of payment the contractual/financial obligation is deemed to have been fulfilled, and any cessation of operations, or inability to fulfill further shipments thereafter will not result in any refund. If prior to three year anniversary, Lonohana Estate Chocolate LLC were to cease operations and/or not be able to fulfill its obligation to lifetime members, those members would have the option to be reimbursed at a pro forma rate of $500 per annum of the unused portion of the three-year period.
