|Flavoron's Pastillas Balls may look simple from the outside, but inside is an honest-to-goodness pastillas heaven!|
The “Ber” month has officially started this September. Thoughts of Christmas will come to mind. Carols will be played in public places and décor will be sold. Gifts will also be considered. A list, maybe a long one, will have to be prepared.
Food is perhaps the most practical thing to give. Many will depend on ordering food as gifts, especially those who do not want to be bothered with tedious preparation. Lately, we discovered a home-based chocolate guy who produces exquisite personalized chocolates and delicious sweet goodies.
Chocolates are said to be love elixir. But this wasn’t what made Rex S. Romero Jr. interested in them. Although he had admitted on using his own business once as a present to his ladylove, his interest in chocolates was simply a fortunate stroke of serendipity.

For starters, Rex doesn’t really have any culinary/pastry background. He’s course was computer related—which means, he should be facing computers than melting pots and working in the kitchen. But as luck would have it, he found himself in a food bazaar where incidentally, a chef was demonstrating how to mold chocolates. He had listened well yet he had no inkling that it would be the start of something big for him.
What started as a plain hobby soon transformed into a passion. Rex later found himself researching on chocolates and tries his best to further improve his craft. He has even developed 24 different flavors for his other brand, Flavoron. He also makes yummy polvoron. He thought of Flavoron in 10 minutes flat as part of the challenge in the nationwide search for Talk & Text and Go Negosyo contest where he emerged 2nd runner up.

What makes his chocolates different from the rest? Well, it is uniquely personalized—he’s selling personalized photographic chocolates. Yes, you can have your face painted on each of his decadent chocolates. He personally painted the likes of President Noynoy Aquino, the late president Corazon Aquino, celebrities Kris Aquino, Pokwang, Rafael Rossel, Denise Laurel, Melai Cantiveros, Jason, and many others on his website. Aside from its uniqueness, it will surely delight anyone with a sweet tooth. His chocolate is indeed a perfect gift and giveaways for wedding, debut, birthdays, and anniversaries. Delivery can be requested but charges will depend on distance.

I personally liked his Flavoron Pastillas Balls in Strawberry flavor. At first sight, it looked like an ordinary pastillas, only made in small balls. Yet after a few bite, one would notice it does have the yummy chewiness of any regular pastillas, but it had the goodness of real strawberry flavor. If you’re a strawberry lover, you’ll get hooked on this one. Flavoron has a lot of other flavors that would surely satisfy any discriminating palate. For the more adventurous foodies, there’s even a wasabi-flavored polvoron from Flavoron. I see no other reason why you shouldn’t try Rex Chocolatic and Flavoron this coming Yuletide season. After all, his products are too cute to look at, you might want to frame them, so sad you can only eat them.
