The highest forms of temptations are confections. Many tried to resist and many has failed. This is because, in this life of never-ending problems, we always patch things up with sweets. Best example are the women who just broke up with their men. Also, everyone is trying to stay in figure and so everyone is trying to stay away from sweets as much as possible.

Confectionery comes in different types. The best is chocolate. Chocolate gives us a feeling that everything is going to be okay - even if we're gaining weight. Since we cannot fool ourselves with the extra pounds we'll gain, might as well have the best confections in life. One of the best places to get some good chocolate love (it's not what it sounds like), is Fudge.

Fudge is a boutique pastry that serve unique dishes, most especially, the confections. Fudge is by far, the best pastry shop I have ever went into and all I can do is surrender to temptation.

Tre Colore

Their Tre Colore is the best reason why chocolates rule the confectionery world. Tre Colore consists of the 3 main types of chocolate. The first layer would be the white chocolate, second is the milk chocolate and lastly, the dark chocolate. The great thing about this dessert is the balance of the sweetness. It is amazing to think that with all types of chocolate in this dessert, you will still taste every flavor of the chocolate. The dessert reminds me of the current Miami Heat roster. Three all-star players in one team, but difference is, Tre Colore already proves that it is a champion in the confectionery league.

Fudge also serves dishes like chicken and fries, gnocchi and other outstanding ones. But one thing to have in Fudge is their Army Navy sandwich. This sandwich has the ingredients of the original clubhouse sandwich. The amazing artillery of chicken, lettuce, bacon, egg and tomatoes are locked and loaded. But what separates this sandwich from the others is that the sandwich is smothered with melted cheese. I cannot put into words the feeling of orgasm just by looking at it.

Cheesecake Delight

The Cheesecake Delight is what a cheesecake should be. Imagine a cheesecake that is placed between a chocolate cake. Interesting? No, it is amazing. The interesting part would be the chocolate not taking the spotlight from the cheesecake and the amazing part is how both flavors blend in your mouth. I love how Fudge made the cheesecake. With the correct amount of sweetness and the pinch of sourness in it, this cheesecake is a sure knockout, via 1-2 combo.

If you think the best confectionery is the bubble gum, think again. The Lava Cake is fierce. Served 25 minutes after ordering, it is worth the wait. A chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream on top looks calm when it is served. But once you take a part of it, smoke from the chocolate cake emerge and the chocolate filling flows out like the genie in Aladdin's lamp. Yes, it is magical indeed. But wait until you've tasted it. The outer layer of the cake has a good crunch while the softness from the inner part plays with your tongue. This dessert is so heavenly, it feels like listening to an angel playing the harp.

Fudge is the reason why confections are called, food for the gods. It is not a sin to have chocolate once in a while. It is nature's way of making up for Mondays.

Come to think of it, chocolate makes you happy. It is cheaper than therapy and you don't need an appointment.

Fudge is located at 888 A. S. Fortuna St., Mandaue City (just in front of Joven's Grill). Price range is P80 - P130

My cousin and I went to Fudge on Feb. 15 for a post-Valentines date.

We highly recommend the Zuri, very creamy pork tenderloin strips in mushroom sauce.

The Lava Cake with vanilla ice cream and The Ultimate Combo is perfect for those with a sweet tooth!

We tried their CMC juice-cucumber, mint leaves and calamsi, oops, my stomach didn't agree with it.

But overall, you get your money's worth and more!
