Chocolate has been known to Filipinos' since the arrival of Spaniards. They brought cacao tree that time and taught local Filipino to cultivate and make it a chocolate.

In Batangas, where cacao tree is also cultivated, we also drink tsokolate. Aside from kapeng barako, this is an alternative for those serious drinkers. I remember before, we used to buy tabliya (chocolate made of cacao) in the market and use it for our tsokolate. Sometimes, we use tabliya for our delicious champorado.

    we bpught a lot of Tablea tsokolate when we just got in Batangas City. i remember when i was a little kid they use this as the chocolate flavor rather than powdered cocoa that can be bought on market.. i love the scent and the bitterness taste of this! perfect at the morning and served hot!
