Patchi, the Lebanese Chocolates founded by Nizar Choucair, is finally here in Manila!  Thanks to Lucy Torres who gave it as a gift to Ben Chan, who in turn fell in love with it and franchised the boutique store in the metro.

Patchi already has a cult following of chocolate lovers in Manila. It is known for having the finest chocolates with nutty fillings, and thematic chocolate favors/gifts. It is a bit on the expensive side, but it is an affordable luxury that one can indulge in to celebrate milestones or to give as gifts.



The boutique store showcases the different decorated gifts for various occasions.

Here are my favorites:


The Chest of Gold Milk Chocolate Patchi (P6,347.45).

(L) Swan Bouquet of Chocolates. (R) Christmas Patchi Tree (P4,449.35).


Patchino — an extensive line of chocolates for kids. Don’t you just love the playful packaging?


This is the bestseller — The Choco Factory (P1,750).

(L) Welcome Baby Boy (P13,393.15). (R) Vase of Patchi Chocolates.


Welcome Baby Girl (P14,106.05).


According to the saleslady, this was the favorite of Lucy Torres to give away this Christmas — a box of Milk Chocolate with Pistachio Croquant and Milk Chocolate filled with Gianduja and Pistachio pieces.


The Patchi chocolates are color-coded. The gold ones are Milk Chocolate while the silver ones are Dark Chocolate.  Not sure about the gray and the dark ones, though… (Would you know?)


Patchi 25
. Dark Chocolate filled with Gianduja Milk and Hazelnut Pieces.

This is the basic favorite and one of the bestsellers. You can’t go wrong with choosing the Chocolates with Hazelnuts.


Audace
. Milk Chocolate filled with Hazelnut pieces.

I like the Milk Chocolate because of its creaminess versus the Dark Chocolate in Patchi.


Rocher Noir
. Dark Chocolate with Caramelized Almonds.

This is my favorite!

The Rocher Lait version, which is Milk Chocolate with Caramelized Hazelnuts, is the favorite of my friend Mishy. 🙂


Pave Pistache
. Milk Chocolate filled with Pistachio pieces.

For pistachio lovers, you’ll be disappointed with the subtle taste of the pistachio. Better stick with the hazelnut variants.


Royal
. Milk Chocolate filled with Gianduja and one whole Hazelnut.

I prefer the chocolates with bits and pieces of nuts instead of the whole ones because you can savor the taste until the last bite.

Legere. Milk Chocolate filled with Hazelnut and Crispy Rice.

I like this too just because of the “Nestle Crunch effect” of the crispy rice — Yum! 🙂


The pricing is on a per gram basis. For example, this sample selection I bought (8 chocolates) costs around 108g x P4.85/g = P523.80.
