ZeroThreeTwo was invited to the opening of Tabléa Chocolate Café, its newest branch at the J Centre Mall in AS Fortuna, Mandaue City—the sixth branch to open in less than 18 months. It was also my first time to attend a store opening. (Yay!)
In the launch of its first Mandaue location, Tabléa celebrated by rolling out an array of new products, just in time for holiday gift-giving and festivities. One of these products is their version of a Filipino Christmas classic, Puto Maya accompanied by fresh mango and Sipping Dark Chocolate. Other new offerings are the Hot Chocolate mixes, allowing you to prepare your favorite Tabléa drinks at home. The mixes will come in five varieties: Sugar-Free Black Chocolate, Mexican Spice, Milk Chocolate, Sipping Dark and Traditional (with Muscovado sugar). The new Tabléa Chocolate Truffles Collection includes delectable tablea-based truffles in Coconut, Chili, Dark Chocolate and Espresso flavors. In the opening, they were giving out lots and lots of chocolates. I ate everything I could get my hands on. I have to be honest with you guys.
I’m a self-confessed chocoholic.
Now, fellow chocoholics can enjoy the divine taste of childhood classics like champorado (thick chocolate rice pudding) and sikwate (hot chocolate), along with the cafe’s best sellers such as the Chocolate Con Churros, Tabléa Ensaymada, Tabléa layer cake, silvanas and its signature chocolate-covered cacao beans.
So it’s a date! Let’s meet up in Tabléa and have our CA (Chocoholics Anonymous) meetings. I’ll go first.
“Hi, my name is Ralph and I’m a chocoholic.”
PS – In addition to last Christmas’ popular Tabléa Sampler Box, new gift boxes will be available this year including: Tabléa Hot Chocolate Mix Starter Kit, Tabléa Brownie Box and Tabléa Chocolate Chunk Cookie Box.
