The first stab of love is like a sunset, a blaze of color — oranges, pearly pinks, vibrant purples…
I’ve been coming across these artisan chocolates by THEO & PHILO through the blogs I skim through but never actually got a hold of them. Names like Dark Chocolate with Siling Labuyo or Dark Chocolate with Calamansi and what really got my attention, was Dark Chocolate with Green Mango & Sea Salt. I was salivating just reading them out loud. I immediately placed an order through ECHOStore and thank God they would deliver. Thank you Ms. Chit & Ms. Rowena. I ordered the following: One of each and the rest to share. =)
1. 70% Dark Chocolate (2) – my son’s favorite
2. Barako (2)
3. Labuyo (2)
4. Calamansi (2)
5. Green Mango & Salt (2)
My favorites are the Dark Chocolate with Calamansi & Green Mango & Salt. The Labuyo was good but a bit too spicy for me. I like spice but it was a bit too much for chocolate. I still have to try the Milk Chocolate and Pili & Pinipig. Heard that there is a new flavor.
I was eager to share my new discovery with my mom but she isn’t too adventurous with these themed named chocolates. I think she will stick to her Hershey’s Kisses and Valor Sugar Free stash. My son gobbles his share in a jiffy asking for more. He really loves Dark Chocolate. Just with everything else, consume in moderation. Enjoy and savor each bite. Simply indulge and once in a while, give in.
