WHITE CHOCOLATE + COCOA NIBS – DAVAO, PHILIPPINES
The tourists in Davao, Philippines, often visit for the region’s summery climate and cultured history. Although much of Davao’s story entails Spanish conquistadors and Japanese immigrants, the arrival of the cocoa bean on Filipino soil is often left for the epilogue. When Spanish explorers first planted cocoa in the Davao region nearly 400 years ago, it was an attempt to guard what they called “food for the gods.” Little did they know that what they once hoarded would allow the Davao region to become one of the world’s premier sources for cocoa beans.
Askinosie handcrafts this single origin white chocolate with 34% cocoa butter, which they press themselves from cocoa beans sourced directly from farmers in Davao, Philippines. They integrate this single origin cocoa butter with certified organic cane sugar and goat’s milk powder to create real, bean-to-bar white chocolate!
They then add Davao, Philippines roasted cocoa nibs to the back of the bar. The cocoa nibs are from the same batch of beans used to make the bar itself, so in just one bite you can taste the entire story—from sourcing to production.
