Some of us have turned to the comforting power of sweet treats to help deal with their feelings (no shame in that!), others have picked up cooking and baking to exercise their creativity. Regardless of where you fall on the spectrum, you’re in for a treat with Auro Chocolate’s QuaranTreats. These are boxes with a preselected set of Auro chocolate—perfect for your eating or cooking needs—that are available for delivery on weekdays, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., anywhere within Metro Manila. There's a 5 p.m. cut-off-on orders every day, and you can pay via Paypal and BDO bank transfer. Aside from helping satiate your chocolate hankerings, purchasing these boxes will also benefit medical frontliners as 20% of the proceeds will be donated to Makati Medical Center, Philippine General Hospital, and Red Cross in the form of chocolate.

The company was launched in 2015 and have since gone on to change the way we see Filipino chocolate.
