This bar is like life, sweet and hefty. Velvety chocolate with the spiciness of the Filipino labuyo pepper, which has been included in the Ark of Taste by Slow Food.

SKU: TPH0030 Categories: , , , Brand:


Like that fiery heroine that girls want to be and boys want to have: equal parts sweet and spicy. This well-loved favorite takes the velvety richness of dark chocolate and adds the zing of labuyo. This is probably the only time you’ll be more than happy to be on the receiving end of a kick—to your taste buds, that is.

Siling labuyo is a Philippine chili pepper that was developed after the so-called Colombian exchange in the Philippines. It is a “wild pepper” and has been included in the Ark of Taste by Slow Food. On the Scoville scale it scores 80.000 – 100.000, which makes it comparable to tabasco or piri piri.

Cocoa from Malabog
Theo & Philo works with cocoa from the barangay Malabog, a community of about 11.000 inhabitants, which is part of Davao City, the largest city in the Philippines by area. Everything in Davao City is low-rise and very green, sprawling in hill country.
There are many small cocoa farmers in Malabog. Growing conditions are perfect. In 2019, for example, Nong Joe won, out of 226 participants from 55 countries the prize for the best cocoa beans of the world in the International Cocoa Awards (ICA).
Philo Chua sources the cocoa, in collaboration with the organisation Gawad Kalinga, from a group of farmers. Gawad Kalinga helps people out of poverty.
(Barangay is the smallest political administrative unit in the Philippines.)

Ingredients: cocoa beans (58%), cane sugar, cocoa butter, labuyo chili pepper.

May contain traces of nuts, cow’s milk, sesame and soy.
