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 a newer addition 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 been in the 90s here) and I’m so happy everything came intact!
This is a 70% dark chocolate bar. The design on the bar is gorgeous – I almost don’t want to eat it. The chocolate itself was outstanding – very smooth for dark chocolate! I am going to keep this one on my desk for a little nibble every now and again – dark chocolate is practically health food, right? I’m just trying to stay healthy…
When you first open this, it looks like cookies and cream chocolate! It definitely isn’t though – it has Black Swan Espresso ground up in the white chocolate. The bar itself is beautiful – I love the intricate design, designed to break it up into bite size pieces. As far as the flavor goes, it wasn’t my favorite. It is very good though and if you like espresso and white chocolate, you’ll probably enjoy it!
The hazelnuts in this bar are really fine, which is a nice way to add a bit of crunch and flavor. I enjoyed this one immensely – it’s like Nutella in bar form! The chocolate was super smooth too. Chococurb doesn’t have this exact one on their site yet, but the other flavors sound amazing!
Verdict: I came up with a value of about $21.23. I am always happy with food and artisanal boxes that meet the cost of the box. If you are in to artisanal chocolate $20.00 to get three bars and be introduced to new companies is a great deal. 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 Father’s Day coming up – if you have a chocoholic Dad, Grandfather, or friend that you would like to gift something to – give Chococurb a try!
