TCHO “Mokaccino” Bar – 2 oz, value: $5.95
I’ve tried chocolates from TCHO before, and I’m a big fan. This Mokaccino bar really tastes like a mocha.
I’m not fond of pistachios, so this Nutty Toffee bar was passed onto my mom (who really liked it!).
Theo Chocolate Coconut Mint Milk Holiday Bar – 2 oz, value: $4
Tisano Vanilla Cacao Tea – $3.95
Coconut can be a hit or miss for me, but this Coconut Mint Milk Chocolate bar was surprisingly good! The coconut is shredded finely so it’s more subtle and the chocolate is really creamy.
I have yet to try a “dessert tea” like this vanilla cacao tea. It sounds interesting, so I guess we’ll see if I like it!
Marou Chocolate Tien Giang Bar – value: $9
Pacari Chocolate Salt and Nibs Chocolate Bar – 10 g, value: $.20
Dolcetta Artisan Sweets Black and Tan Bar – 1.2 oz, value: $4
This Marou Chocolate bar is from Vietnam, and is described as having a combination of spice, tobacco, and nutty flavors. I’m not sure I’ve ever had any chocolate like that before (which is pretty much the point of the box), so I’m curious to try it, but haven’t yet.
The Pacari sample is dark chocolate with pink salt and cacao nibs. I like it – the pink salt adds an interesting flavor!
This Dolcetta bar is my favorite new discovery in this whole box! It’s called a “black and tan” bar because the bottom layer of the bar is really dark chocolate and the top layer is caramelized white chocolate.
Verdict: I love chocolate and I really enjoyed this Chococurb box! I like the variety of flavors and textures, and I’m happy to have discovered some interesting, new treats! As far as value goes, everything adds up to $31.60. Considering I probably would never have found some of these chocolates without this box, I’m pretty happy with that value!
