The Chocolate Love Affair

         "Love? I'd rather fall in chocolate." Those are strong words to live by, especially when you consider chocolate sufficient enough to "fill the void". I imagine unattached people uttering those words on Valentine's Day to themselves and their peers with functional relationships. I can't blame them. Food is one of the few things that works so easily as a pacifier, especially chocolate in particular. Known as one of the most studied aphrodisiacs there, chocolate soothes more than just our taste buds. However, Christina Erika Jacob, Athena Rafer and Richard Balatan of The Chocolate Love have taken their affair with the famous and well-loved sweet treat a couple notches higher. I let out a giggle when I found out their business was established on Valentine's Day and that it spawned from Christina's intent of getting something for her boyfriend, "We are all HRM students from the University of Perpetual Help System DELTA. It started when I (Ecks) was trying to find the perfect Valentine's gift for Richard. Athena suggested that I should make homemade chocolates. After that, I asked Athena if they could sell chocolates on Valentine's Day too. Richard helped make chocolates after Valentine's Day." And then, The Chocolate Love was born. Everything was just so fitting. 

            The product they started selling first were the customized heart-shaped chocolates. Other sweets like chocolate lollipops, chocolate bars, Chocolate wontons (or "Chocmai" as Richard calls them), cupcakes, Fried Twix and the beloved fried Oreo. Ever since Flaming Wings offered Wicked Oreos (which are deep-fried Oreos topped with ice cream) on their dessert menu, people began making their own at home and see it as a fun activity to do with friends and family. Of course, we all have days when we just wanna plop ourselves on our beds and do nothing but eat, right? Well,  The Chocolate Love team (no, the owners are not made of chocolate) can make your life just a wee bit easier cause they personally deliver your orders.

         I got to try a box with some of their products, mostly composed of the 3 best sellers on their line-up: Fried Marshmallows, Fried Oreos and Cake Pops, along with a Choco and Mallow Pop. They also sell edible cake toppers, Chocolate Covered Potato Chips, Leche Flan and Cakes in a Jar, among other things. These would make great giveaways for parties as they also customize the chocolates they make. Plus, everything is made to order so you're sure to get a fresh batch of sweets.

Fried Oreo (P12 each)

         Biting into an Oreo is one thing, biting into an Oreo that's covered in pancake batter and deep-fried until golden brown is another story. 

Fried Marshmallow (P 6 each)
       I never thought anyone would try frying a marshmallow given that it's soft, gooey and chewy. The Chocolate Love team added a layer of chocolate as the treat's surprise element. I asked the owners what separates them from other homebakers and they had this to say, "I think it's because we make sure our customers are 1000000000% satisfied. We make sure that our customers are happy with their orders. Last December, I made cake pops so many times, to no avail. But when a customer ordered Christmas-themed Cake Pops, we took it as a challenge and gave our 100% in making it even thought we didn't offer cake pops at that time."

Cake Pop (P25 each)
        What is a Cake Pop, you ask? It's basically a small portion of cake with a stick and takes the round shape of a lollipop. I think I would have 10 (or more) of these instead of a huge slice of cake on a day wherein I'd trick myself into thinking I'd be eating less. *teehee*
