This is a pack of 25 squares of Auro’s 42% Milk Chocolate with Cacao Nibs. It’s perfect to give as a gift, or to have on hand to serve visitors.
The Auro 42% Milk Chocolate is a smooth, single-origin chocolate made with cacao bean sustainably-sourced from local farmers in Davao. Creamy and delicious, the addition of cacao nibs adds a slightly bitter dimension, and a welcome crunch to the chocolate.
Milk Chocolate pairs well with red wines like Pinot Noir or Merlot. You can serve these squares after dinner to round out a good meal. If you prefer something non-alcoholic, it also goes brilliantly with some good gourmet coffee.
The name Auro Chocolate has become such a distinct moniker that you’ll find few who aren’t familiar with the brand. Since their launch in 2015, they’ve found exponential growth and success. They can now be found in many specialty shops, as well as hotels, select supermarkets, restaurants, the Philippine Airlines, and retail stores in 10 countries.
Proudly Filipino, Auro Chocolate boasts a company that is not only bean-to-bar, but is also committed to positive social impact. Their fine cacao and chocolates are made from beans directly sourced from farmers in Mindanao, and bought at higher value to give the farmers opportunities for an improved standard of living. Crafted with skill, passion, and the latest technologies in their factory in Calamba, Laguna, they seek to honor the flavors that make Filipino chocolate so distinct, using traditional techniques and original recipes.
So incredible is their passion and their craft that they’ve been globally recognized multiple times, winning distinctions from illustrious award-giving bodies like the International Chocolate Awards, and the Academy of Chocolate. They currently have 50 international awards to their name.
Store your chocolate block in a cool, dark place, ideally between 18 to 24°C. You can use the refrigerator, but place the chocolate in an airtight container to keep the moisture and humidity out—and retain its full range of flavors, of course!
