Chocolate Cake Always Loves You Back - Red Ribbon whips up a delicious comfort

Comfort food is like a warm embrace. It’s a back rub after a hard day. It’s a reassuring word. There is no one clear definition of what comfort food is, but we all agree how wonderful it makes us feel even with just a taste.

Comfort food lifts the spirit. It’s familiar and nostalgic. It’s food that simply satisfies.

All of us have our own list of comfort food, and in every list, there is always chocolate cake. Always. Just what makes it a comfort food?

Is it the chocolate? Science offers an explanation about this magical ingredient that Aztecs used to worship. Chocolate contains tryptophan and phenylethylamine, chemicals that stimulate secretion of hormones like endorphins. These produce feelings of elation, attraction, and pleasure. How wise those Aztecs were.

Is it the way it was prepared? Comfort food is not necessarily hard to prepare but one of the reasons they are special was the effort it took to make them. Chocolate cake is made with layer after layer of goodness. We taste the love that went into the preparation – that’s what makes us feel better.

Is it the familiarity? We grew up with our comfort food. They are the food “like mom used to make” or Tita brings every time there is a family reunion.
Chocolate cake may not have been served often, but memories of eating it bring a warm feeling because of its family ties.

Whatever the inexplicable connection, we love chocolate cake and it loves us back.

Red Ribbon whipped up a version of the classic chocolate cake with its new Chocolate Fudge Cake. This sure comfort food list-topper is made with its moist chocolate pound cake layered with luscious chocolate fudge filling and then smothered with velvety chocolate icing. It’s the kind that will make you savor every bite, scrape off the last bit of crumb and icing on the plate, and then lick the fork clean.

Every time you need a slice of warm embrace, a back rub, or a reassuring word, you know you can easily get a Chocolate Fudge Cake in all Red Ribbon Stores nationwide – now that’s a tremendous comfort in itself.

Chocolate Fudge Cake is available in regular size for P495.00 and junior size for only P295.00.
