Chococurb is an artisan chocolate box. They have two subscription ‘sizes’ so to speak: their mini, which is what I am reviewing today, and their regular subscription. Their mini box is new, and they promise three chocolate products per month. They also have a shop, so you can repurchase the chocolates that you love!
My box was shipped this month with a metallic bubble pack and the teeniest little ice pack ever (about the size of a package of saltine crackers you get with your soup at a restaurant!) to ensure the chocolate didn’t melt. It was successful (it’s already been in the 90s here) and I’m so happy everything came intact!
I wasn’t expecting to like this as much as I did. The orange inclusion is quite good, the chocolate isn’t bitter in the least, and it’s so smooth. I was expecting a more fakey orange taste, which I obviously shouldn’t have expected from a bar Chococurb would send out. It was top notch and delicious.
I cannot find this specific bar on Chococurb’s website, nor on the manufacturers website. I have linked to the company above – it looks like they have some interesting offerings, and they have their own chocolate club, which sounds like heaven. This specific chocolate bar has rapadura sugar, along with whole hazelnuts. It’s quite good, and the packaging is pretty too!
By this point in our relationship, you all know that I have a penchant for the dramatic at times. Believe me when I say, this is not that time and you need to try this chocolate. It is, by far, my favorite in the box, and perhaps the best chocolate I’ve ever tasted. The texture of it is very interesting, and different from any other chocolate I’ve had. The flavor is also outstanding. Do yourself a favor, and buy yourself one of these. The almonds inside are not whole almonds, in fact, I don’t even see almond pieces in it, so it might be ground almonds that are included.
Verdict: Due to the fact that I couldn’t find the particular Cabruca Chocolates bar that I received online, my value of this box is going to be a bit of an estimate. What I came up with was about $22.00. Some of you will say $20.00 is a lot to spend on a candy bar – and if you’re not in to artisanal chocolate, yes it is. If you are in to artisanal chocolate though, $20.00 to get three bars, plus introduced to new companies is quite the deal. Plus, you don’t even have to go out of your house to get it. These three bars will last me about a month with how much chocolate I eat at a time, so I think that this is absolutely worth the money. With Mother’s Day coming up – if you have a chocoholic Mom, Grandmother, or friend that you would like to gift something to – give Chococurb a try!
