Boost Your Immune System With Monggo Chocolate

These are difficult times that we’re in. With the entire world currently on red alert, we sincerely hope that everyone stays safe and healthy. A new strain of coronavirus is on the loose but that does not mean we should all panic and empty out our grocery stores. In this article, we would like to share some tips on how to boost your immune system, with Monggo Chocolate!

How to Boost Your Immune System?

COVID-19 is caused by a virus, the same family of what causes the common cold. Except it is far deadlier than the flu. Presently, there is no cure but only supportive treatment. While we should all be practicing social distancing to avoid getting infected, we can also help our bodies fight this pesky virus to keep our immune system in tiptop shape. How?

  • Eat a healthy diet
  • Exercise regularly
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Get enough good sleep
  • Keep your stress levels low

Yes, this is the most generic advice, but it works! However, with quarantines keeping us indoors far longer than we’re used to, we also suggest eating chocolate. Now more than ever, it’s important to boost morale along with our immune system! While the health benefits of chocolate are questionable, there is no questioning the fact that eating chocolate makes us feel good.

Five Chocolates That Help Boost Your Immune System

The only thing more healthy than these chocolates are… celery. 4/5 of these also have an added ingredient that makes it even more delicious, and they’re all immune boosters too!

1. Dark Chocolate 58% of Cocoa with Ginger

Ginger has been used as a medicinal herb and flavouring agent for over 5000 years! This aromatic root can boost your immune system with its anti-inflammatory effects and reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes with its ability to improve fat metabolism. Let this mighty and amazing herb add a sweet peppery zing to your chocolate craving!

2. Dark Chocolate 58% of Cocoa with Nutmeg

Did you know that nutmeg, or ‘buah pala’ is native to Indonesia? The seed of the Myristica fragrans evergreen tree can be ground into this sweet, pungent spice long used for its festive flavour and psychoactive properties. Whether you believe the health claims or not, it’s never inappropriate to savour your chocolate with added seasoning!

3. Dark Chocolate 58% of Cocoa with Red Chili

Red chili needs no introduction in Indonesia. Fun fact: It’s also classified as a fruit, not vegetable. Among its many properties, it is a natural painkiller, rich in Vitamin C, an antimicrobial and linked to longevity. This chocolate is historically significant as the ancient Mayans who discovered chocolate used to drink it with ground red chili!

4. Dark Chocolate 69% of Cocoa with Peppermint

This hybrid mint whose oil is a natural pesticide is being researched for its properties to soothe an upset stomach. The relaxing effect of peppermint also works wonders on our moods (peppermint tea anyone?). Not to mention that refreshing aftertaste which you can attain from eating chocolate! But still brush your teeth before you go to sleep, okay?

5. Dark Chocolate 100%, 86%, 77% of Cocoa

The darker the chocolate, the higher the content of antioxidants which make you happy. (The Dark Chocolate with 100% of Cocoa is even sugar-free!) Perfect for those that enjoy the bitter brilliance of chocolate. If you’re tired of eating chocolate, why not drink it? Melt some of these dark chocolate and turn it into a chai hot chocolate or make a decadent dessert instead!

Why yes, we do have an online store!

We hope you found these tips on how to boost your immune system helpful, especially with how feel-good chocolate can help too! In light of the pandemic, we advise everyone to stay safe and healthy, and if your closest Monggo Chocolate (find out where with our store locator) has run out, then be extra safe and just shop online!

Chocolate Monggo’s 14th Anniversary “Lebih Asyik, Tanpa Plastik!”

On April 27, 2019, at our head office and the production site of our premium chocolate, we celebrated Monggo’s 14th birthday under the slogan “Lebih Asyik, Tanpa Plastik!”. The theme was chosen to further support the movement of reducing plastic waste, which is responsible for the devastating impacts on our environment.

“Chocolate Monggo has been reducing the use of plastic ever since the brand was founded, but this year we are especially dedicated to reducing our consumption of plastic. One of our concrete actions is to reduce the use of plastic in our packaging. For example, we use aluminium foil and FSC-certified paper that is easily decomposed, for all our 40gr and 80gr packaging. Customers are also given a paper bag when purchasing Chocolate Monggo, instead of receiving their products in a plastic bag” said Steffen Hitscher, Marketing Manager of Chocolate Monggo.

A series of events were held during the 14th anniversary of Chocolate Monggo “Lebih Asyik, Tanpa Plastik!”, including the planting of cocoa trees (Theobroma Cacao) around our neighboorhood in Kotagede, recycling workshops and for charity, we invited orphanages to create their own chocolate. Besides, we completely banned plastic from the event.

We would like to thank the all the sponsors, who supported this event: Yogyakarta’s Royal Ambarrukmo Hotel, HS Silver, Lendis Advertising, Puratos, Pangan Lestari, Greeng Inspiration (Printing), Media Centerlink, Hamzah Batik, Hamzah Jakal, Cemerlang, PT. Espera Satya, Narisaq, GCB Cocoa, UOB Bank, Bank Mandiri, Bank BCA, Bakpia Wong, Fave Group On, GL. International, Sumber Praline Utama, Illy Coffee, Margaria, and Radio MNC 97.0 FM Trijaya Yogyakarta and I-Radio 88.7 FM Jogja.

Monggo’s Efforts to Reduce Plastic Pollution

More than 8.3 billion tons of plastic have been produced since 1950. It weighs the equivalent of 80 million whales, 1 million elephants, or 822,000 Eiffel towers. Unfortunately, only 9% of that amount has been recycled and the rest is still scattered in landfills and even in the sea.

Please note, the average time that a plastic bag is being used is 12 minutes, while in fact, it takes 1000 years to decompose.

From several studies show that Indonesia is the second largest contributor to plastic waste after China. According to the journal Nature Communication, Indonesia is estimated to contribute more than 200,000 tons of plastic waste mainly from Java and Sumatra. Many rivers in the urban areas are full of garbage and cause flooding during the rainy season. In fact, four rivers in Indonesia are included in the 20 dirtiest rivers in the world.

Many people don’t realize that we already consume micro-plastic on a daily basis. Plastic polluted rivers supply watering for plantations, which then provide food to the nearby cities, or, the micro-plastics are simply consumed by animals that become daily food base such as fish and chicken in Indonesia.

Chocolate Monggo’s Efforts to Reduce Plastic

At Monggo, we’re not only enthusiastic about making chocolate. We love sweet food as much as we care about environmental sustainability. And ever since, we were especially worried about plastic waste.

All our retail products do not use plastic packaging, but are protected by aluminium foil, which degrades faster than plastic, and wrapped into a paper packaging made of FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified paper.

However, we also feel responsible that our packaging is disposed correctly. We like to remind our consumers about it and therefore, print a Javanese man, who correctly disposes his trash, on each of our products.

Besides, we have always given paper bags for our customers to carry their purchase. The paper bag that we provide is less harmful to the environment than the plastic bag and can be reused as well. We also serve our drinks with paper straws, paper cups, paper box for takeaway snacks.

Easter is Coming

Chocolate Monggo creates seasonal products for special occasions, especially those where people like to share with their loved ones. Soon Easter is coming up, for which we created several chocolate products to celebrate.

Over the years the “egg-hunt” has become a popular European tradition to celebrate Easter, especially for children. Usually decorated eggs are hidden by the parents for the children to find.

Today, easter bunny and eggs made of chocolate became important for the celebration of Easter. At Monggo’s showrooms those chocolate eggs and chocolate bunnies can be found in different sizes, either with a filling or hollow. This Giant Easter Egg is entirely made of Dark Chocolate with 58% of Cocoa and guarantees to delight its happy finder.

Kedai Chocolate Monggo

The café culture is on the rise in Indonesia, especially because of the younger generations, who categorize cafés not only as a place to relax and mingle but also to do other activities that are more formal and productive, such a studying, working or having a professional meeting. Coffee is consequently a popular drink these days. The availability of good quality chocolate drinks, on the other hand, remains scarce.

At Monggo, we’ve created various chocolate drinks with a similar quality as our regular products. You will find the Chocolate Drinks at our Kedai Cokelat that is located at our Chocolate Museum and Factory in Bangunjiwo. With an open and connected Javanese-style, slightly modern but with iconic Javanese features such as the Joglo itself (open Javanese building, resting on wooden columns), or the  Gebiok (Javanese wood carved walls) that surround it, the Kedai is such a place to spend time at.

The focus though lies on our authentic chocolate beverages. Various cold and hot chocolate drinks with different percentages are available, reaching from Milk, Dark Chocolate with 58% of Cocoa and Dark Chocolate with 69% of Cocoa until Dark Chocolate with 77% of Cocoa. The beverages are prepared only from real chocolate and Milk, but without adding any additional sugar.

We’re often asked why Monggo doesn’t offer cocoa powder that allows to prepare a chocolate drink. But for us, chocolate is not just made from cocoa powder. Real chocolate has to be made of cocoa mass and cocoa butter, the cocoa beans pure components that not only deliver taste and mouth-feel but also most of cocoa’s nutrition. At the Kedai Cokelat, we only serve these real and authentic chocolate beverages. Once tried, you’ll realize that a chocolate drink can be much more than just sweet. You’ll notice the unique aroma of the cocoa and how it becomes stronger and slightly more bitter, according to the percentage you chose for.

Beside those unique beverages and regular drinks, there is a mixture of coffee and our chocolate, which we call “Choco Moko”. The Kedai also offers unique snacks, made with the expertise of Monggo’s Belgian Chocolatier. Enjoy so-called “Galettes”, which are flat, French-style pancakes, with different fillings such as Salty Caramel, Hazelnut and Brown Sugar.

We try to run the Kedai as eco-friendly as possible and therefore serve our drinks with paper straws, paper cups, paper box for take-away snacks.

Come and visit us and try these unique treats, starring Monggo’s fine chocolate, in a cozy-Javanese environment.
