Cacao Fruit, What?

Early this morning, an office mate asked us to help ourselves to this fruit and I was like, what is this? My friend Vangie was very excited, she said this is a cacao fruit. They have cacao trees in their province in Aklan and the fruit reminds her of nice childhood memories. So in between coffee and a Country Style egg sandwich, I sampled the fruit. It tastes like a cross between a santol and an atis fruit. When we tell office mates that the seeds in this fruit are processed into cocoa and chocolate, they are amazed. I didn't know that either. Oh well, its a good day to learn something new.
