I found some local chocolates there. Some like Theo + Philo and Malagos Chocolate, I've already tasted before. Both use chocolate beans from Davao, I didn't know Davao produces cocoa beans, but that was a very good surprise.
I was able to try Malagos Chocolate in a food fair. Not allowed to have chocolate during the pregnancy, but I couldn't pass on the chance since it was my first time to see the brand. I tried their 65% Dark Chocolate, it was heavenly! Better than some imported brands with a higher cocoa percentage. I was also offered to try their hot chocolate, one of the best ones I've tasted...ever! I've never been so proud of a Philippine made product before...well, not as much as this one. I will definitely play around with recipes using Malagos Chocolate after I give birth (c'mon Scout, mommy wants to bake!).
I'll be making separate entries for the other local chocolate items that we bought (and more about Malagos Chocolate escapades, of course) when I get to try them.
