(SPOT.ph) Chocolate is perhaps one of the few foods in the world that has an almost awe-inspiring quality, thanks to its benefits. It's considered a superfood, after all, with its antioxidants and other endorphin-releasing ingredients. But ask around, and most people would admit that there's really only one reason why they like eating chocolate: it's delicious. Some would even say heavenly.
Inevitably, Villa del Conte has earned quite a following since they landed in Manila in 2011, thanks to pralines with rich milk chocolate and indulgent fillings like caramel and macadamia cream. This year, the artisanal chocolate maker from Padova, Italy launches several new flavors to add to their selection. There's the Milk Chocolate with Blueberry Filling, with creamy milk chocolate, a hint of crunch, and a fresh blueberry flavor. The Dark Chocolate with Tartufone Cream and Cereal is rich and luxurious, heavy with a subtly bitter flavor from the dark chocolate. The crunch from the cereal bits is a good contrast to the gooey, creamy center. But our favorite has to be the Dark Chocolate with Salted Toffee. This praline has semi-sweet chocolate and crunchy toffee bits with just the right amount of saltiness to break up the sugar. The taste lingers on your tongue, leaving a pleasantly salty-sweet flavor.
Villa del Conte also has branches in Greenbelt 5, Trinoma, and Resorts World Manila. Prices start at P480 for a sampler box.
