Each product as its own life cycle and besides all the laboratory analyses, we are also testing each of our products in different storage conditions to determine how long it can maintain its best quality.
But don’t forget that we live in a Tropical country with high temperatures and high humidity levels. So, keep your chocolate in a cool and dry place.
In order to maintain its best quality, our chocolate is stored in a cool and dry place. The best temperatures are between 18 and 20 °C for bars, tablets, and other plain products, but for pralines and truffles between 6 and 9 °C is a must.
Chocolate easily absorbs odors. Avoid placing chocolate near smelling foods or products. The odors can modify the taste of chocolate and there is no pleasure in eating a dark chocolate-tasting soap.
Chocolate doesn't like water either. Avoid direct contact with water, condensation, or humidity. If your chocolate is in the refrigerator always re-sealing the packaging tightly to keep the product dry. Water on chocolate will make the sugar bloom to the surface and create white spots. It is still good to eat with those white spots but as we say “we eat with our eyes”
Non-refined cane sugar is used in most Chocolate Monggo products. We also use coconut blossom sugar and Javanese palm sugar.
Pure chocolate is indeed bitter. 100% Dark chocolate Monggo is made with a very good cocoa mass from well-fermented cocoa beans and this is reducing the bitterness of the taste.
If you are on a strict none-sugar diet and this product is still too bitter for you, then try the 100% with dried apricots. Without affecting your sugar level this chocolate will bring real taste pleasure.
100% cocoa Dark Chocolate is safe for diabetics because the chocolate does not contain sugar but is made from pure cocoa only. Dark 100% with dried apricots is also safe for diabetic people and is a fruity-bitter pleasure.
Any dark chocolate from 60% of cocoa till 100% is good for people with heart problems as it will help to lower blood pressure.
Almost all Chocolate Monggo products are Gluten-free. Although we are also creating cereal bars, biscuits, and cookies that are not gluten-free.
Chocolate Monggo is a premium couverture chocolate or “Real Chocolate” produced in Yogyakarta using high-quality ingredients, namely fermented Indonesian cocoa beans and made of high percentages of cocoa mass and cocoa butter. We don’t use any cheap vegetable oil in our products.
Our extra fine chocolate needs a very long process of making and ageing before it will melt smoothly on the tongue. Our Belgian chocolate expertise is a guarantee of quality but also of creativity. Try our delicious chocolate pralines and truffles to feel the difference.
While you might also find on the market other chocolate products that are generally “compound chocolates” made from a little cocoa powder mixed with a lot of sugar and vegetable oil. Products like this are mostly only tasting a bit of chocolate but are not real chocolate.
Chocolate Monggo is an original product from Jogja, made from natural local ingredients and be handled/ treated/ processed by chocolate experts from Belgium at our factory located in Bangunjiwo, Bantul Regency Indonesia.
We are also working with many local farmers to source our cocoa beans, fruits, spices, nuts, etc

Any dark chocolate from 58% to 100% is very good for health with its very high antioxidant levels.

Dark chocolate is the food with the highest antioxidants! Even milk chocolate has good levels of antioxidants. The antioxidants in (real) chocolate are flavonoids and they are helping preventing cancer and heart diseases.
Plain Dark chocolate will not make you fat. Instead, eating Chocolate tends to make us happier. Chocolate is also a source of high calories and energy and it is a perfect snack for sports activities. Eat and eliminate.
One insect, in particular, is attracted by the cocoa and the chocolate. It is called the “Cocoa Moth” a little butterfly that will lay its eggs near the source of any nice cocoa smell. The newborn tiny larvae might find their way through the packaging and reach the good chocolate to feed on. That caterpillar will then grow in the chocolate and make room to metamorphose into a moth. A complete life cycle will take up to 3 months. Such contamination often occurs in open rooms and supermarkets letting the moth too easily reach its target.
If such a thing happens to you with our product, we won’t let you be frustrated with your infested chocolate and will replace it even if this has not happened in our hands. Only your positive experience matters to us.
Please don’t forget to keep the packaging with the infested chocolate and share pictures of it and details of your purchase.
We are also happy to be informed about such matters as we will immediately evaluate the storage conditions of the contaminated product.
You may ask yourself if this couldn’t happen in our production facilities. Infested cocoa beans eventually? Well then, the eggs of the moth would need to go through the roasting, the extra fine grinding, the extra fine sieving and that would just be impossible.
We also advise, in order to reduce those risks, to purchase directly from our stores offline or online.
