a huge surprise! enjoying the Kinder Chocolate Cereals 

My son loves Kinder Joy! You have to take a picture with the Kinder Joy mascot to get free Kinder Chocolate Cereals. My son was afraid of the mascot yet they still gave him a treat. And while he was enjoying it, the mascot appeared and waved at the camera. Well that is literally a huge (egg) surprise!

Choco-Liquor Cakes by Maricar Reyes-Poon 

The hype with this Choco-Liquor Cake is not because of Maricar Reyes-Poon as a celebrity. It is because of the cake itself being rich, moist, and with a hint of wine, so good it is addicting.

Coco Dolce

Probably what sets Coco Dolce apart from other chocolates is the use of organic coconut sap sugar as its only sweetener making it a healthier choice.

Easter celebration 
roaming around the venue giant ice cream 

I grew up with the idea that the best chocolates are the imported ones. But with Shang Chocolate Wonderland, I got to know more about our local chocolate makers and how great their products are. It has way changed my perspective on chocolates that it has become more than just an Easter celebration or a chocolate festivity. So before you head on with your diet for that summer body, indulge yourself first with various great chocolate treats at the Shang Chocolate Wonderland!
