Chocolate is one of man’s greatest creation. I just love chocolates. That’s why when I heard of Davao Chocolate Festival I made sure to visit them. Davao Chocolate Festival was held in SM City Annex Event Center on September 12 – 14, 2014. I went there last Saturday and tried different kinds of chocolates which are locally produced.
There were also display of cacao which are grown in the region. Did you know that Davao region is the biggest cacao producer in the country? It is just befitting to hold this kind of event here. Different participants joined the event and showcased their products.
The event is made to inform people that World Class Chocolates can also be found in Davao. I am sure that a lot of people were surprised to see chocolates made in the Philippines. These chocolate brands are not just your ordinary chocolates. They can actually be compared with chocolates from other countries.
Here are the chocolates that were on display last Saturday:
Other than the display of different chocolates, there was also a competition. Different schools participated in making a dessert using chocolates from Davao Region. I wasn’t able to taste them but they really look enticing and delicious.
I hope my fellow Davaoenos would patronize these products. This will help boost our economy in Mindanao at the same time it would also help local farmers earn more. Let’s be proud of what we have here in our Region. We may not be the best yet, but we are definitely on our way to becoming one of the world’s best. 😀
