Dove is not just soap. I was searching for my favorite chocolates in the mall after a long day at school. It wasn't easy attending a long meeting about the preparation of the culminating activity of the Special Program in the Arts since the mob of students constantly complaining about the system and the previous presentation can really numb your ears and your consciousness. I needed the most comforting food to lift my spirits up and face the challenges of the day again.
I always turn to chocolates every time I'd feel down or stressed from work. According to research, the anti-depressant SEROTONIN in chocolates actually lifts spirits in moments of melancholia and anxiety. I usually go for dark chocolates as it was proven to help relax blood pressure with flavonoids, the antioxidant responsible to fight against aging. I saw Dove chocolates in the array of local brands so I bought each of the four flavors, Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate, Crispy Rice and Hazelnut Almond Raisin. I was sent the four variants but I just had a bite of the Dark Chocolate since my son had eaten everything by the time I reached home. I had to buy the chocolates again to compare the experience with those I'm used to.
The difference? Well, I'd have to say Dove Chocolates is more comforting to the taste as it is not too sweet nor too creamy. Some local brands will make you taste that foil wrapper in the bar and some would just make you taste the richness of the gum base used in the chocolates but Dove Chocolates was just simply chocolatey and really relaxing. What's more relaxing was the price. At P45 (43g bar), the taste is at par with the leading commercial chocolates sold nationwide and really cheaper!
It's really the best advice to all who'd join the SMP (Samahan ng Malalamig ang Pasko) this Christmas!
