From choco loco to choco no-no

I was so excited when my mom gave in to drive us to Megamall (okay, it’s not really far from my place but I don’t like to commute just for my food cravings).
Anyway, I was craving for the Belgian Chocolate Fondue of Eskimo Bob by Iceberg one day and I can’t stop chanting BELGIAN CHOCOLATE FONDUEEEEEEE. I guess that was the reason why my mom gave in.
Yey! Eskimo Bob!!! I immediately ordered the dessert my tummy was requesting and I added Country Fries just in case I get tired of eating fruits with chocolate.
The fries arrived first and it was… OILY. But since I was hungry, I still ate it. Not satisfied though. It was really oily and it didn’t have crispy edges.

As for the BELGIAN CHOCOLATE FONDUE (sorry, I just have to type it in all caps), I was disappointed BIG TIME. Let me tell you why.

Before, Eskimo Bob had more uh… stuff, to dip in the chocolate. There were fruits such as strawberries, mangoes, bananas, kiwi, pineapple, cherries, and peaches. There were also slices of cake, marshmallow, and whip cream. Now, they serve fondue with mangoes, bananas, peaches, strawberries, mini marshmallows, cherries, whip cream, and ice cream.

Aside from the missing kiwi and slices of cake, the chocolate was not good at all. It does not taste as good as before. I’m not sure if they used old chocolate or if they changed suppliers but it was BAD. Goya chocolate was far better.
With this experience, it might take a while before I visit Eskimo Bob again.
