Chococurb has the right idea when it comes to shipping chocolate. They shipped it in a cooler. A cooler with ice packs and a metallic bubble wrapper around the chocolate, to be specific!
This is just straight up chocolate – no inclusions or added flavors. It tastes delicious, as good chocolate should, and is another two-bit wonder. These little gems are the perfect size for a little sweet tooth, or a quick ‘dessert’ after lunch.
I’ve had the opportunity to try Dolfin chocolate often with Chococurb, and I always enjoy it. Dolfin is a Belgian brand that is hard to come across in the states. I appreciate that I can try different flavors through this subscription. I really liked this particular square – just basic milk chocolate!
One thing to note with Chococurb is that you will receive repeats. I’ve received this particular bar at least three times now. This milk chocolate bar is 26 grams of pure milk chocolate delight. This isn’t the super sweet, flavorless milk chocolate you know and hate – this was lightly sweetened with the chocolate flavor coming through strongly, but still cut with the creaminess of milk.
I’ve also received this chocolate twice, but I enjoy it so I don’t mind. The packaging on this little piece of chocolate was top notch. It is a thick, textured paper folded into an envelope. This is described as: “Milk chocolate with a dark chocolate twist: we’ve added even more cocoa beans…sure to please both sides of the chocolate debate.” It is definitely still on the dark end of the spectrum of chocolate – don’t bite into this expecting that creamy milk flavor from milk chocolate. With that said, it is very good – it’s a bit of a light, creamy dark chocolate. I enjoyed it!
Seattle Chocolates – Birthday Cake Truffle
This truffle is milk chocolate on the outside, with a birthday cake truffle filling inside. I don’t really taste the cake flavor but it is certainly vanilla flavored.
Here is all the goodness!
Verdict: This box is difficult to do a value judgment on since many of the sizes are unavailable online. I always enjoy my Chococurb Nano boxes – the sizes are perfect for a quick, sweet bite of yummy. I think the $10 they charge for this box is reasonable, especially since the chocolates are high quality and a little hard to find everywhere.
The only issue that might be a big deal for some people is a number of repeats – there are quite a few, so be aware of that going in!
