A local chocolate brand puts chicken skin in a bar
Chicken skin chicharon and adobo flakes, to be exact
Jun 19, 2018
Some people like their chocolate dark, some milky, while some prefer theirs… savory? Before you raise an eyebrow about this peculiar preference, you might want to see this first. Yes, a chocolate bar that incorporates, not just sweet and savory, but two savory flavors: chicken skin chicharon and adobo flakes.
Ever tried chocolate that satisfies both your sweet tooth and your palate for savory? Our Chole Chocolate Bar is our Filipino version of the mole: Chicken Skin Chicharon. Adobo Flakes. Really good chocolate. Spiced with Palapa made for us by @chiliasylum. You have to try this to believe and enjoy it! Come over to Philippine Harvest today until Sunday at the Central Square in BGC. Philippine Harvest is a joint project of the Department of Tourism and the SSI Group of Companies. #CulinaryTourism #DOT #PhilHarvest #SSI #RisaChocolate #PhilippineChocolate #Savory #Snack #chicharon #adoboflakes #itsmorefuninthephilippines #instasnack #instayum #instachocolate
Risa Chocolates, the local brand behind this ingenious combination, says it is their version of the Mexican mole sauce, which contains fruits, spices like chili pepper, cinnamon, and cumin, and for a sweet twist, chocolate.
To make their Chole chocolate bar, as they like to call it, they even put in a little something extra, called “palapa” which they had exclusively made for them by Chili Asylum, which specializes in such spices.
For those who are unfamiliar with palapa, Bon Appetit describes it as “Spicy, sweet, earthy, and garlicky,” all at the same time. It packs a lot of spices like garlic, ginger, chili, of course, mixed with grated coconut meat.
The Chole chocolate bar, along with their other signature bars were showcased at their booth during the 9th Philippine Harvest at the Central Square in Bonifacio Global City.
