What happens if you take a beloved combi and add a third wheel to it? Well, in this case, that's gastronomic magic. Dried green mango, a little salt and dark chocolate create a distinctly Filipino flavor that is sure to appeal to a whole new crop of dreamers and chocolate lovers.
Cocoa from Malabog
Theo & Philo works with cocoa from the barangay Malabog, a community of about 11,000 inhabitants, which is part of Davao City , the largest city in the Philippines by area . Everything in Davao City is low-rise and very green, stretched out in hill country.
There are many small cocoa growers in Malabog. The growing conditions are perfect. In 2019, for example, Nong Joe won the prize for the best cocoa beans from the International Cocoa Awards (ICA) out of 226 participants from 55 countries.
Philo Chua sources the cocoa in collaboration with the organization Gawad Kalinga , from a group of farmers. Gawad Kalinga helps people out of poverty.
(Barangay is the smallest political administrative unit in the Philippines.)
Ingredients: cocoa beans (58%), cane sugar, cocoa butter, dried green mango, sea salt.
May contain traces of nuts, cow's milk, sesame and soy.
