We were at a huge mall near my in-laws' home last Sunday as we decided to have lunch out one Sunday. Walking to a store after lunch to check out some items, I decided to browse a chocolate stall to see if they have some interesting dark chocolates apart from the usual ones we could buy from the supermarket. I found a couple of bars that looked interesting based on both packaging and descriptions and decided to purchase the two. Here's the first one we sampled later at home.
|Jcoco's black fig pistachio in dark chocolate in solid purple is definitely packaged to catch attention|
|Description of the product (what to expect?) and ingredients at the back of the pack.|
|A pleasant surprise to find the chocolate wrapped individually and with curious images for each. The inside of the package also provides a brief write-up on the advocacy of the manufacturer.|
|Each small bar also had information about the chocolate at the back.|
|The packaging of the small bars appear as if the chocolates came out of a fashion mag. The wife found these quite amusing.|
The chocolate is described as having 44% cocoa. We think it was just right in terms of the flavor and was perfect with the other major ingredient, which was black fig pistachio. I haven't had black fig pistachio before so I really didn't know how it would taste but I think the mix went well enough. The price is also just right at about 100PhP for the 3 bars inside the package. It's a steal for those who want to enjoy good quality dark chocolate. It's available at the Cacao stalls at SM malls.-
