The Auro Assorted Collection is made up of eight incredible chocolates, packaged in a gorgeous box with a solihiya pattern. Filipino craftsmanship is at the forefront of this collection, with each chocolate smooth and creamy, made with cacao beans sustainably-sourced from Davao farmers, and produce and additional ingredients all proudly local. They’re gluten-free, and treenut-free.
This collection consists of 64% Dark Chocolate, 42% Milk Chocolate, 77% Dark Chocolate, 55% Dark Chocolate, 64% Dark Chocolate with Cacao Nibs, 55% Dark Chocolate with Arabica Coffee, 42% Milk Chocolate with Banana Chips, and 32% Roasted White Chocolate with Cashews.
Both dark and milk chocolate go well with red wine. Try a Shiraz or a Cabernet Sauvignon with Dark Chocolate. For Milk Chocolate, go with a Merlot or a Pinot Noir. White chocolate is much sweeter, and thus, will be better with a less sweet drink. All of these will pair perfectly with a good cup of gourmet coffee, or a mug of hot tea.
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!
