Cacao Island is one of 34 islands surrounding Whole Cake Island as part of the Big Mom Pirates' main territory known as Totto Land. It was run by Lola, the former "Minister of Chocolate" (チョコレート大臣 Chokorēto Daijin?); because of her departure, the island is currently without a Minister. It is the first island of the Charlotte Family siblings' secret route to Whole Cake Island.
Chocolat Town (ショコラタウン Shokora Taun?) has many things made out of chocolate, such as the houses, fountains, hot springs, and even clothes. Windows are under the jurisdiction of the candy chancellor and pillars the biscuit chancellor. It is legal to eat any of the chocolate structures with the exception of the roofs. Another exception is when "dismantlers" are hired to eat the building before the material expires. When a building is being dismantled, a sign must be put up to alert the public. Items that aren't chocolate are either personal belongings or items for public usage. They also seem to have chocolate variants of non-chocolate foods such as burgers, pasta and fried chicken.
Caramel (カラメル Karameru?) is a cafe owned by Charlotte Pudding and is next to her house. As with all the other buildings, most of it is made of chocolate, along with marshmallows, jelly beans and almonds. A majority of the building was eaten by Monkey D. Luffy and Tony Tony Chopper, which would have been a crime had Pudding not covered for them.
The Sweets Factory (お菓子工場 Okashi kōjō?) is a large factory where Sanji, Pudding, Chiffon, Buche, and 30 other chefs from Whole Cake Island gathered to make a wedding cake to calm one of Big Mom's craving.

Less than 62 years ago, Cacao Island became part of the Big Mom Pirates territory also known as "Totto Land", and its appearance was changed to its current look by Charlotte Linlin and Streusen's Devil Fruit powers (the Soru Soru no Mi and Kuku Kuku no Mi respectively).
Lola was later appointed the minister in charge of this island. After she was arranged to be married to Prince Loki of Elbaf five years ago, she decided to leave and search for a husband on her own.
Whole Cake Island ArcEdit
The Sanji Retrieval Team docked on Cacao Island for supplies on their way to Whole Cake Island. While there, Monkey D. Luffy and Tony Tony Chopper devoured Charlotte Pudding's café and the Sanji retrieval team encountered Pudding shortly afterwards.
Sometime afterwards, the mystical ingredients for the wedding cake were stored at Chocolat Town. Pudding, in order to stop her mother's food crazed illness, suggested to go use them to make another cake with the help of Charlotte Chiffon. Pudding and Chiffon later informed the Sanji Retrieval Team about their plan and recruited Vinsmoke Sanji to help them make the cake. The three later traveled towards Cocoa Island while the rest of the team lured Big Mom, planning for the two groups to meet halfway as the cooks made their way back with the cake.
Upon arrival, Sanji hid within Rabiyan's folds while Chiffon pretended to be Pudding's prisoner. They proceeded to the "Sweets Factory" where the WCI 31, Whole Cake Island's head chefs, gathered to assist Pudding. Inside the factory, Pudding altered their memories of the Tea Party. With Sanji taking the lead, the chefs began to work on making the substitute wedding cake.
Meanwhile on the Thousand Sunny, the Sanji Retrieval Team planned to meet up with Luffy at Cacao Island after he defeated Katakuri. However, Brûlée eavesdropped on them and reported their plan to Perospero, directing the Big Mom Pirates to ambush the Straw Hats there.
Sometime later, Pound arrived to Cacao Island following his daughter, while Brûlée informed Pudding about the Straw Hats' plans. Outside the Sweets Factory, Oven arrived with his soldiers and attacked Pound, forcing him away.
After the chefs finished baking the base of the cake, they planned to finish the cake on-route to Big Mom. However, after leaving the factory, they were interrupted by Oven, who at first tried to punish Chiffon for her treachery and later decided to use her as bait against Bege. When the Fire Tank Pirates arrived, Oven was attacked by Bege, causing him to release her. Bege and his crew went on to attack the Big Mom Pirates on shore, and Sanji used this opportunity to lift the cart carrying the cake and the chefs onto Bege's ship before it changed course to leave the island. In a last attempt to take Bege down, Oven used his Devil Fruit power to heat up the sea and damage the ship, but he was stopped by Pound. Oven then struck down Pound as his daughter and her friends escaped. It was then reported to the rest of the Big Mom Pirates.
A blockade was later formed around Cacao Island and Oven later placed a large mirror at the canter of Chocolat Town and ordered the island's citizens to break or discard their mirrors, leaving it as Luffy's only way out of the Mirro-World. Oven was later joined by more of his siblings for support.
