Antonio Pueo Spanish Chocolate
Antonio Pueo Spanish Chocolate Products

The story of Antonio Pueo Chocolates has its beginning in historical Intramuros, the old Walled City of Manila in the early part of the 20th Century. Its founder was Jose Maria Pueo, a 17 year old Spanish immigrant who arrived in the Philippines armed with the knowledge of chocolate manufacturing which he learned from his Spanish godfather, who was also a friar.

Through the 17th century until early 1900's the Spanish religious community had built a reputation for high quality production of cooking Chocolate which they called "Tableas". Following the very same basic production techniques and secrets learned from the good friar, but with some of his very own innovations. Jose Ma. Pueo started the first Chocolate Factory to produce Antonio Pueo Chocolates (named after his father and uncle). In post-Colonial Intramuros, Mr. Pueo quickly built a reputation for having the highest quality natural chocolate drink manufactured locally from the finest grade of "Cacao".

"Cacao" or Chocolate, made the old-fashioned way directly from cacao beans has a deeper, darker brown color, distinct and wonderful aroma, and all the instrinsic natural taste and goodness coming from having all its cocoa butter intact. When cacao beans are processed into cocoa powder, almost all the natural cocoa butter is extructed (later to be sold as an additive in food, cosmetic and pharmaceutial industries for use as high grade moiturizer or as an additional flavoring ingredient in some other food product). Without enough cocoa butter, the result is a chocolate drink that is tasteless, watery, and pale by comparison in both taste and color.

At Antonio Pueo chocolates, all our products are of the best quality because we use only 100% pure chocolate. Each product made at our factory carries the stamp of more than a century of high quality chocolate processing and manufacture. Because every chocolate product is ground only from organically grown Plantation cocoa beans from Davao with all the cocoa butter intact, you are assured that the real taste and aroma of naturally grown and roasted whole cacao beans will always permeate each and every taste of Antonio Chocolates. So you must try our products and experience the grandeur of the Spanish Colonial times for yourself.

Truly, Antonio Pueo Hot Chocolate is an Old World Luxury all of us can still enjoy even in this new millenium.
