Subtle and addicting: Patchi

A fried from Lebanon gave me Patchi chocolates as pasalubong. Basically, Patchi is a brand of ultra decadent chocolates from Lebanon. It was made famous in the Philippines when Ben Chan brought the franchise here last year with a store at the Fort. Supposedly, Patchi offers the most expensive box of chocolates in the world in their corner in Harrod's in London.
I'm not a big fan of chocolate but I was so excited to try Patchi!
The box he got me had landmarks of Lebanon printed on 'em. What a great way to show someone a glimpse of the country without being so "tourist guide-y"
I chose my favorite landmark first. Love the NatGeo feel of the arcs!
Such a gem! So small yet so interesting!
My first bite was magical! The taste was so subtle and mild that I had to chow down the entire block in one bite. It was milky and light, it reminded me of being a kid when everything in the world was beautiful and bright.

I couldn't resist, I had to get another one!
I have to say, I understand why Patchi chocolates are so expensive. It is so elegant, the chocolate just melts in your tongue. I would love to try their other flavors like dark chocolate perhaps, or those with nuts in them. I hear Lucy Torres' favorites are: the Milk Chocolate with Pistachio Croquant and Milk Chocolate filled with Gianduja and Pistachio pieces. Sounds yum! I would love to try those.

I can't say I've become a chocolate-convert already. I think I have yet to find chocolates that would really sweep me off my feet. But for its elegance and daintiness, I would have to say, Patchi chocolates are up in my list :)
