Miss Universe Phl,  Auro Chocolate partner  for exclusive drink

Miss Universe Philippines, in partnership with Auro Chocolate, unveiled a

limited-edition customized drink made for a sound mind and body.

“People have this misconception that when they think chocolate, they think only dessert — something sweet, something that you can only have at the end of the meal. But cacao and chocolate are so much more than that. We want to push the boundaries of what cacao and chocolate can be,” said Kelly Go, co-founder of Auro Chocolate, at the opening of the World Chocolate Fair at S’Maison last 5 July.

The special blend will be served hot mixed with collagen from the exclusive menu of Auro Chocolate Cafe.

“It is good for not only your mind, but also the body. This is something new for us; this is going more into functional chocolates. We already know that cacao is healthy, full of antioxidants and fiber, but we are boosting that with collagen which is, of course, good for your skin, too,” Go said.

The Collagen Hot Chocolate will be available for a limited time only.

The first, biggest and grandest World Chocolate Fair in the Philippines concluded its fourth staging at the main atrium of S’Maison at Conrad Manila. Held from 5 to 9 July, WCF featured over 12 brands specializing in sweets and pastries, in which some even used Auro’s award-winning bean-to-bar chocolate.
