Magdalena's Cacao Bean "Bean-to-Bar" Dark Chocolates


Here's a cool new find...artisan chocolates by Magdalena Cacao Bean Chocolates.



Local organic cacao beans harvested from the farms of Gerry and Cynthia Baron in Magdalena, Laguna, hence the name, are used in all of Magdalena Cacao Bean Chocolate products. And true to its "bean-to-bar" all-natural process, one can taste the pure, rich chocolate flavor in every bite. An engineer by profession, Gerry Baron tapped his training in designing customized equipment to produce a unique line of true artisan chocolates. And in August last year, Magdalena Cacao Bean Chocolate rolled out the first batch of premium dark chocolate products.  


Simple, almost rustic, and big on all-natural chocolate flavor, each product delivers a taste and flavor experience that can only come from local, farm-grown cacao beans. And one can sense Gerry and Cynthia Baron's love for chocolates in each product, lovingly packed by hand in small packages. Semi sweet with a rich dark chocolate flavor, all Magdalena Cacao Bean Chocolates are dairy free, making it less fattening. 


Magdalena Cacao Bean Chocolates are packed in 80 gram packages, and available in Dark Chocolate with no filling, Roasted Cashew filling, Dried Mango filling and Marzipan Pili Nut. Priced at P 160 per pack (SRP), and for a limited time, will be sold at a special introductory offer at 25% in selected retail outlets. Magdalena Cacao Bean Chocolates will also introduce a variant using low glycemic coco sugar for diabetics very soon. Very cool. 


Magdalena Cacao Bean Dark Chocolates are made from 60% Cacao Beans, 10% Additional Real Cocoa Butter, 29% Raw Washed Cane Sugar, 1% Vanilla Powder, and 1% Soya Lecithin. Absolutely no fillers or preservatives are used in the chocolate products.


Pure dark chocolate indulgence in every bite. Experience real "bean-to-bar" dark chocolate goodness with Magdalena Cacao Bean Chocolates, a cool local product that's definitely worth checking out.

  8. It's really hard to find artisan or gourmet chocolates that's locally produced and with cacao's locally harvested. Hope they have more shops to supply their chocolates to so we could also have a try. Let's recommend them to food bazaars!
