Every month, Treatsie includes a card detailing the products included in that month’s box. They also recently changed the look of their cards to show the breakdown of the value of the box.
Chuao Mini Bar in Sweet & Salty, Potato Chip, Salted Chocolate Crunch, and Popcorn Pop – .39 oz each, value: $4 total
Chuao is one of my all-time favorite brands of chocolate, so I was definitely thrilled to see that they were heavily featured in this box. These mini bars are the perfect size to try out some of their more untraditional (but somehow always delicious) flavors.
Lambrecht Gourmet Southern Pecan Toffee – 3 oz, value: $7.12
Chuao Ravishing Rocky Road Chocolate Bar – 2.8 oz (Full Size!), value: $6
Kika’s Treats Coconut Shortbread in Dark Chocolate – 4.5 oz (Full Size!), value: 9
I am so happy that the full-size Chuao bar in the box was one of the best flavors I’ve tried! Ravishing Rocky Road has actual marshmallows and salted, caramelized almonds in it. You know this bar was gone as soon as the photos were done!
Toffee is another one of my favorite treats, so that was a win as well. Unfortunately, I just don’t like coconut, so this shortbread will be passed along to my family.
Verdict: All in all, I was thrilled with this month’s Treatsie box! The value is just under $30 so I’m definitely happy with that, and I loved the featured treats. After a couple months straight of caramel-heavy boxes, I was really happy to have lots of chocolate and more variation again.
What do you think of this month’s Treatsie box? Have you tried any of these Chuao chocolate flavors before?
