Theo & Philo Artisan Chocolates.


I found these bars of chocolates on the shelves of Team Manila last weekend. And I'm really glad I did. For chocoholics like me, Theo & Philo Artisan Chocolates are a wonderful addition to my must-have chocolate list. They have the prettiest packaging and the most interesting flavors.


I grabbed a bar of Green Mango & Sea Salt and a bar of Pili & Pinipig. I loved the Pili & Pinipig. The sweetness of the chocolate is just perfect. Rich and robust, nutty and crunchy.

The Green Mango & Sea Salt was in dark chocolate. And since dark chocolate is bitter, the flavors were kind of clashing each other. I think green mango and sea salt would be wonderful in milk (sweet) chocolate. You know, sweet-sour, sweet-salty? That would be an awesome combination. There's just something so sexy and heavenly with sweet-salty, sweet-sour combination.

Dear Theo & Philo, how about making Green Mango & Sea Salt in sweet Milk Chocolate? :)


Theo & Philo is proudly Pinoy. Their cacao is sourced in Davao and sugar, from Bacolod. And the quality of their products could compete with many imported chocolates out there. Every bite of these chocolates is a joy.

And I love their packaging. Tasteful and luxurious.

  • Kape Barako (Milk chocolate with organic Barako coffee)
  • Milk Chocolate (Dense, creamy, and not too sweet)

  • Pili & Pinipig (Milk chocolate with glazed pili and pinipig)

  7. My sister said Theo & Philo chocolates are really good. It's just too expensive here in Cebu. Around 120 I think :-(

    1. I think it's also already about P120 in Manila now. But it's good to have this once in awhile. You get good chocolate and you get to support a true-blue pinoy company. : )
