Living out my Chocoholic dreams at the Godel Chocolate Tour


Given the opportunity, I will indulge in chocolates without hesitation. I eat more chocolate than the average person. Who doesn't love chocolate anyway? 

Chocolate is so good that most people have their favorite, go-to flavor. Chocolate has an undeniable appeal to those with the "sweet tooth".  But did you know that chocolate or cocoa is actually bitter in its natural state?  Percentage on the chocolate label indicates the amount of pure cocoa liquor in the mixture. So the higher cocoa percentage it is, the more pure and bitter it is in taste. 

Chocolate is made from cacao beans.    It goes through rigorous procedures before it is processed into sweet chocolate solid moulds (candy bars) or liquid (chocolate drinks etc.) products found on store shelves. 

Godel - Spreading Happiness

From sweet milk chocolate to super dark chocolate with 70 percent cocoa, peanut butter-filled bonbon, to a whole array of sinfully delicious options in between, JCG Marketing Group / Vesmach crafts these chocolate products and more under the Godel brand. This  new chocolate player in the Philippines is set out to rival the best chocolate manufacturers in the world.  Godel confections are at par with those produced by premier chocolate-makers.


I came to appreciate chocolate more after joining in a chocolate factory tour at Godel. It felt like being in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory movie.   It was awesome to know how Godel chocolates are being processed first hand and to experience eating as much chocolate stuff as I like.

Best Chocolate for candy making  

Godel manufactures chocolate products using locally-sourced, fermented cacao beans from South Cotabato and Davao. Godel carefully chooses every chocolate bean and ingredient that is flown into its kitchen to be transformed into fine chocolates.

These quality 
cacao beans that go through fermentation, result in more flavorful beans that in turn produces a distinctly fruity chocolate product.  Each cacao bean is carefully sorted according to quality and size.

The Long and Winding Pathway

 Bean-to-Bar production in a nutshell includes these steps -
Tempering and Dosing

Godel takes extra care in keeping the mould and chocolate temperature almost the same to prevent sugar blooms. It heats and cools the chocolate (tempering) to get its desired chocolate characteristics.

When done properly, chocolate will have a smooth, glossy finish that chocolate makers want. It hardens into a firm chocolate with a nice snap when broken off.

A Burst of Flavors

For chocolate fan or a chocolate connoisseur, indulging in chocolate is the best part of the process. I get to taste Godel chocolates to my heart's content!  The chocoholic in me was happy savoring -

Milk Chocolate Almonds, Chocolate with Whole Almonds, Milk Chocolate with Cashews, Salted Caramel Chocolate, Chocolate with Nibs and Bonbons with fillings. Bonbons come in with dulce de leche filling, white chocolate with pili nut, bonbons with peanut butter and bonbons with coco jam

I had a grand tour of tasting all their creations featuring - Tablea, Cacao Tea, Stir-in Hot Chocolate and Hot Chocolate Bomb.

This cocoa ball of chocolate mix drink contains marshmallows. You simply have to pop a hot cocoa bomb in a mug and pour over hot milk to melt the bomb. Stir to mix the concoction together to enjoy a good cup.

For one day, I was able to live out my dreams at the Godel Chocolate factory.

What's Up Ahead

If you have a weakness for chocolate, you need not look anywhere else. Godel has great selections to choose from. More chocolate-y developments are also in store as Godel will soon launch its Couverture Chocolate for Bakers / Chocolatiers plus new flavors like mint towards the end of the year.

On top of chocolate goods, Godel offers baking tools and equipment for chocolate makers from cacao bean sorting to packaging. Food products, Godel gift boxes and Vesmach baking solutions may be purchased onsite or online via Lazada and Shopee.
