Calling all choco-holics! On July 7-11 2021, S Maison at Conrad Manila will be the sweetest place in town, bringing you the must-see World Chocolate Festival where you can indulge in heavenly chocolate treats. Get ready for a sugar high as you feast on everything chocolate – donuts, ice cream, waffles, tableas, babkas, cookies, and chocolate frozen yoghurt.
This year, your favorite sweet shops show off their iterations of the award-winning Auro chocolate. For the fair, Auro is partnering with Overdoughs, Café Mary Grace, Poison Doughnuts, Half Saints, Serenitea, Bubu Bars, Lola Café, Pinkberry, and Conrad Manila.
FROYO AND VEGAN ICE CREAM
Want to try dairy-free choco bars? Bubu Bars has the perfect treats for you! Get their “Nuts For You” flavored vegan ice cream bar with hints of bourbon vanilla and light creamy caramel covered in thick Auro 55% single origin dark chocolate, topped with salted almond praline. Vegans can also try their “Fancy Pants” sweet and tart vegan ice cream bar blended with roasted strawberries, covered in thick Auro 77% single origin dark chocolate and topped with freeze-dried strawberries. Their products are all dairy-free and plant-based so you can satisfy your sweet tooth ─ minus the guilt! What’s more, you can also opt for Pinkberry’s rich and nutty dark chocolate froyo at the fair.
CHOCOLATE-FLAVORED CHIPS AND COOKIES
Can’t decide between sweet or savory? Have the best of both worlds with Poison Doughnuts’ milk chocolate Doritos donuts, coated with an Auro 42% milk chocolate glaze, or their white chocolate Cheetos donuts with 32% Auro white chocolate. If you prefer your chocolate in cookies, there’s something for you, too! Give in to your cravings with Overdoughs and their white chocolate cashew butter cookie mixed with sweet Auro white chocolate, cashew nuts and white chocolate chunks. They will also offer more flavors that you can try at P120 per piece or P450 for a box of four.
SAVORY CHOCOLATE PAIRINGS
Believe it or not ─ Half Saints will offer spicy chocolate and beef kare in a pan, sweet and savory ground beef filling with 42% Auro milk chocolate and spicy Japanese curry. They’ll also be serving their highly praised 64% Dark Chocolate Tart with Himalayan Pink Salt, among others. Meanwhile, Lola Café will have a strawberry and chocolate waffle with crème fraiche and toasted coconut on the menu and Auro tsokolate cakes.
DELICIOUS MILK TEA AND CAKES IN CANS
If you haven’t tried the trendy cake in a can, Conrad Manila’s chocolate and griottine cherry cake in a can, topped with a 64% Auro chocolate disc, is the perfect place to start. Another cake to try is Café Mary Grace’s single-origin Davao dark chocolate with almond chocolate bark and orange cream. For milk tea addicts, Serenitea will offer several special milk tea flavors with Auro chocolate like their bestselling Cacao Cookie Supreme, Trio Chocolate, and more.
