Filipinos and Their Love Affair With Dark Chocolates

“Your hand and your mouth agreed many years ago that, as far as chocolate is concerned, there is no need to involve your brain.”

Chocolate, that dark sweet delight that has been your most constant temptation from the moment it got introduced to your tastebuds.

Historians say chocolates have been making the world happy since 350 B.C. The discovery of cacao was so revolutionary back then that it was even used as a form of currency. Since then, chocolates have been enjoyed by different cultures in a variety of forms and flavors.

Filipinos’ love for the sweet may very well be connected to our history. Our region was where the sugarcane originated, which explains why we love to put sugar on everything.

Its the one pasalubong we Filipinos will never grow tired off–whether its from abroad or even local.

But while we love our local flavors, there is no denying that we also appreciate international quali-ty when it comes to sweets. And this is what Goya Dark Chocolates has done—it has captured hearts of both young and old because of its unique bittersweet chocolate taste that can give oth-er imported chocolates a run for their money.
