I finally got the chance to meet Pam Lim Cinco, the person behind the delectable Risa Chocolates during the Best Food Forward event last April 2-3, 2011. When I met her, I honestly told her that I never had the chance to try their chocolates but I heard and read a lot of good reviews about it.
These reviews were right! The chocolates were downright scrumptious. I tried the Choco Choco Milk, and and after finishing a few samples, I bought a box for myself (yes, I’m selfish when it comes to chocolates; but it’s a good thing that I’m the only one in the family that appreciates dark chocolate).
All three are 50-55% dark chocolate. So soft and it melts in your mouth (and no, not like M&Ms). The Choco Choco Milk is the sweetest. I could hardly taste the Cerveza Negra but you could sense that it has a different taste compared to the Choco Choco Milk a.k.a. “child-friendly” truffle. As for the Dark Rum Truffles, you could definitely taste (and smell) the liquor.
This is also the PERFECT anti-stress snack. I finished a box while doing a presentation and I went on with work with a big smile on my face (and drooling for more). Yes, I am seriously in love with Risa Chocolates. When I found out that they will be part of one of our biggest events, my tummy got so excited.
Verdict: I can’t wait to buy more of Risa Chocolates. I will definitely try Cacao Nibs and Cookie Dough truffles.
