Theo & Philo Artisan Chocolates

For many years, I though that good ol' chocnut was the most proudly Pinoy chocolate created, until I met Theo & Philo.

Theo & Philo Artisan Chocolates is the only bean to bar chocolate from the Philippines. By bean to bar, it means that ALL ingredients used in the chocolate bars are sourced locally here in our country (with cacao sourced from Davao, and sugar from Bacolod).

I got to try their Milk Chocolate with Barako Coffee variant, which I got from Human Nature's flagship store in Commonwealth.

I love the packaging. It's simple but classy. From the color choice, to the kalesa detail - it shows a strong sense of Philippine pride.

I love how this bar gives just the right kick of Barako coffee. Even if it's a milk chocolate (and not dark chocolate), it still has a bittersweet taste to it. The texture has a little bit of graininess in it, which resembles crushed coffee. However, I find that it easily melts in room temperature or even on your fingers while you're eating it. (Tip: Eat it at home so you could lick your fingers right after! Haha!) If this bar of chocolate doesn't wake up your taste buds, I don't know what else will.

Speaking of Theo & Philo being proudly-Filipino, their other flavors will surely tickle your tastebud, like 70% Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate with Labuyo (Chili), Dark Chocolate with Green Mango and Salt, Milk Chocolate with Organic Barako Coffee, Milk Chocolate with Pili Nut & Pinipig (Toasted Rice), and Dark Chocolate with Calamansi.

I'm craving for more Theo & Philo chocolates, particularly their Labuyo and Green Mango and Salt flavors! What are your picks? :)



  1. I'd love to try the one with Labuyo and Green Mango and Salt too! Sobrang ka-curious! :D

    Sana meron din sa ibang branches ng Human Nature. :)

  2. It's just too bad that this cannot be shipped, and the nearest Human ♥ Nature store is still too far away. The pitfalls of living in the boondocks. :(

    1. These can't be shipped because they easily melt. The Human ♥ Nature store is far from my place too.

      Maybe you can find one outlet from here that could possibly be nearer to your place: :)
