Exquisite Love for Valor

August 4, 2014

I have a new love, and its name is Valor. He is fine and smooth, and sweet when I want him to be. He is from Spain and he will stay in the Philippines.

Before I get a violent reaction, let me just clarify that my new love is a chocolate brand – Valor Chocolates. The leading company in the Spanish chocolate industry. It was Valeriano Lopez Lloret who founded the Valor Chocolates. Defined by a passion to produce the best chocolate, Lloret together with his family of master chocolatiers, set up factory in 1881.  Since then, five generations have been at the helm of Valor Chocolates and have managed to transform the brand into an international standard.

How Valor Chocolate is Made: From Bean to Bar  

Valor chocolate experts select their cacao beans from three of the world’s finest sources: Ghana for the Forastero variety, an intense cacao that gives depth to flavor; Ecuador for the Guayaquil variety, one of the most aromatic; and Panama for the Trinitario variety that gives a fruity note to the intense aromatic flavor.  These cacao beans travel 12,000 miles to Valor’s central factory in Villajoyosa Spain. The factory starts its “from bean to bar” manufacturing process by blending these cacao beans into proportions and mixing it with other high quality all natural raw materials to produce the finest chocolates.   

Behind the Pleasure… 

I love Valor because it continues to innovate, as demonstrated by the launch of their latest sugar-free products which are now sweetened with stevia, a natural sweetener derived from a plant originating in South America that is 15 times sweeter than sugar but with zero glycemic index. Valor sugar-free chocolates are pure guilt-free indulgence. I remember meeting Stevia during our organic farm tour!

Over 130 years of passion for chocolates, the best cacao beans in the world, all natural ingredients – these are just a few best-kept secrets behind the boundless pleasure of Valor Chocolates.  Check out Valor’s immense range of flavors from pure chocolate, chocolate with Mediterranean Marcona almonds, chocolate mousse, sugar free hazelnut spread and more!

They say Spanish and Latinos are best lovers, and I so agreed. Valor is rich, and authentic. Maybe it is real love because Valor made me like Milk Chocolate – the kind of chocolate that I rarely eat, because I always go for dark chocolates. 😉

Yeah, okay, so Valor is not a guy; and I don’t mind sharing Valor with my girl friends 🙂

Valor Chocolates are available in Premium chocolate bars, Sugar Free plain chocolates – Dark, 70%Dark, Milk; Sugar Free chocolates with nuts – Whole Marcona Almonds and Whole Hazelnuts; Creamy sugar free chocolate mousse; and more!
