BERLIN Chocolates are one of the best pasalubongs you can bring home to your loved ones or friends back in Manila. 

It was awesome to meet The Diplomatic Wife, a Filipina Expat diplomat now assigned in Berlin. She introduced me to one of the best boutique chocolate shops in Berlin–Winterfeldt Schokoladen.  

You can follow her ongoing food and travel adventures in Berlin with a Filipina perspective. 

I was able to visit Fassbender & Rauch at the Gendarmenmarkt first, so I had a something to contrast with my Winterfeldt Schokoladen experience.

Check out our chocolate food tripping in Berlin…

Fassbender & Rauch

Fassbender & Rausch is one of the most touristy chocolate shops in Berlin, located in the Gendarmenmarkt area.

Fassbender & Rausch Chocolatiers-38.jpgLove the Mandel-Nougat Pralines (€1.60)–chewy & creamy but not too sweet.

I recommend buying their signature chocolate tin boxes and an assortment of truffles.

Winterfeldt Schokoladen

“This is one of my favourite Berlin Finds and a must visit for any chocolate lover in Berlin. This place was awarded Best Chocolate Specialty Shop in Germany 2012. With the fine selection of chocolate, it well deserves the award. TD and I have been addicted to it since our friend Isabelle took us their the first time. Our favourites are the Roc Lait (milk chocolate covered ganache with nougat), Kondierte Orangen (candied orange slices dipped in chocolate) and the chocolate covered marshmallow with wafer base. The Salted Caramel Macarons is also great. TD also loves the thick hot chocolate, and he orders it in large size. This is not for the choco-faint-hearted. You’ve been warned!”

We ordered DiploWifes chocolate favorites…

TheDiplomaticWife at Winterfeldt Schokoladen-31.jpg
Roc Lait (€8.50/100g) milk chocolate covered ganache with nougat.

It has a smooth chocolate flavor with chewy nougat texture and just the right sweetness. 

I scored pogi pasalubong points with my wife for the Roc Lait. 🙂

TheDiplomaticWife at Winterfeldt Schokoladen-32.jpg
Kondierte Orangen (€5.00/100g) candied orange slices dipped in chocolate.

The candied orange slices add a tangy counterbalance to the sweet dark chocolate.

TheDiplomaticWife at Winterfeldt Schokoladen-28.jpg
My favorite combination: Strong Chocolate Drink with sweet Roc Lait.

  1. The awesomeplanet blog is what I read to start my day, and with the Berlin travels detailed in the last few entries, we Filipinos will somehow realize that there is hope for the Philippines to be again progressive just as Germany has progressed
