Of course, no trip to the World Chocolate Fair is complete without pasalubong for the family. Take home some cake-like Conrad Manila’s chocolate and Griottine cherry cake-in-a-can adorned with a 64 per cent Auro chocolate disc, or a Davao dark chocolate cake with almond chocolate bark and orange cream from Café Mary Grace.
