Like that exotic vacation you’ve been dreaming of. Dark chocolate is combined with black sesame praline, cashews, and pili nuts for an almost sinfully indulgent and crunchy treat. If a sexy adventure had a flavor, this would be it.

Maker

Theo and Philo

Theo  Philo is a chocolate maker based in the Philippines. Theo and Philo prides on using local ingredients. It all started from Philo’s love of baking, and desire to use chocolate. He would always scour for special and different types of chocolate. Growing up in the Philippines, he was surprised no one was making bean to bar chocolate, after he first encounter with single estate chocolate. Cacao is grown in the Philippines but it was mostly used to make hot chocolate and exported. That’s when the decided to experiment with local cacao and see what good can come about! Along with their single origin plain bars, they have a collection of flavored bars that are inspired by the local Filipino cuisine. Theo is short for Theobroma Cacao, and Philo is derived from the Greek word which means love. Their goal is to create masterpieces with each bite of their chocolate, which is carefully crafted to capture the bountiful heritage of the Philippines.

Cacao Region

Davao, Philippines

One of the smallest big cities in the Philippines, Davao City is affectionately known as both the cacao and durian capital of the country. In fact, often you'll see both fruit trees growing on the same plantations within city limits, yet due to large soil & cacao varietal differences, you'll find that the resulting chocolates taste nothing alike. The region is so widespread that there's even a citywide speed limit that makes a trip from one end to the other take nearly two hours without traffic!

love the sesame flavor

I love sesames but rarely find them in chocolates. This is a unique bar that combines the nutty and crunchy sesame praline with chocolate. The bar is relatively small in size, but I really like the sesame flavor and the texture.

Strong Dark Chocolate Sesame Flavor

This bar is definitely not for everyone, but if I could have give it a 4.5 instead of 4 I would have. I couldn't give it a full 5 because it is a specialty taste bar.
If you love the taste of black sesame, then you will love this bar. The black sesame blends well with the dark chocolate and cashews. The pili nuts have an almond like flavor, and this is my first experience with them. The chocolate is a very rich dark chocolate taste. The bar is on the smaller side, but I can only eat it a little bit at a time given how rich it is, so I am not bothered by the size.
The packaging also is very pretty and has an interesting feel.
Overall this bar is delicious and something I would order again as a treat for myself.
