I love peanut butter and chocolate combination that’s why I devour Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. But I was surprised to find a peanut butter variant for M&M’s…
For the chocoholics like me, Hong Kong may be one of my fave places. This is because there are wide variety of chocolates available, some can’t be found in our groceries. And for dark chocolate lovers, you’ll find lots of them at 7-eleven stores. While we’re in HK, we always pass by 7-eleven before going back to Taisan to buy chocolates for our midnight snack. Chocolates consumed a considerable amount from our pocket money.
Here are my chocolate finds during my recent HK trip:
Food and travel are a perfect combination, by sampling the local cuisine, you also get to taste a country’s history and rich culture. Albeit my husband’s non-adventurous tastebuds, he willingly gave in to my demand, food tripping Hong Kong’s cuisine. Some restaurants are not authentic Chinese but these are the food places recommended by other HK travellers.
After enjoying our Italian food at Bellissimo, we decided to cap the evening with dessert. And so we headed to the newly opened dessert place along Roces Ave. called Heavenly Chocolates, which I learned from Shopcrazy.com. The place is quiet and relaxed, perfect way to enjoy your drink of hot choco or cold chocolate drinks. Before we even get to order, the attendant gave us free taste of the Sachi Nama chocolates. We were given bite-sized chocolates that we immediately ate and boy, had I known that the chocolate was this good, I could have eaten it little by little to savor the flavor of the chocolate. The texture is so smooth it melts in your mouth quickly. The texture reminds me of Meiji Melty Kiss chocolates. I wasn’t able to take pictures of the Sachi Nama chocolates because even my officemates munched them at once. They sell these chocolates at Php 350 per box and they come in different variants too.
I liked the taste of Mexican Mocha over the Marula Malt. Mexican Mocha has a deep chocolate taste while Marula Malt is on the sweet side and not too chocolate-y for me. The owner is generous enough to give us samples of the chocolates that will be arriving in their shop soon. We immediately picked each chocolate pieces we forgot to take photos of them first (oops!). We were given a dark chocolate and milk chocolate variant. I preferred the dark chocolate because I find the milk chocolate a tad sweeter for my taste.
We were eager to try their Chocolate Pasta but it’s not available at that time. Their specialty cakes will also be available soon so this place deserves another visit and hopefully, they’ll be in full blast to serve all things chocolate.
