Chocolat Moderne – Pumpkin Ginger – Value $8.00
Chocolat Moderne has presentation down pat – all of their bars are gorgeous to look at, especially the Avant-Garde Bars. The flavor I received is Pumpkin Ginger, which seems to be a seasonal offering. I’ve tried their pumpkin pie bar in the past, which was delicious, so I was excited to try this one!
At first, it tasted quite similar to the pumpkin pie flavor. The main difference is that this is a caramel based bar, whereas the pumpkin pie is a chocolate ganache based bar. If at all possible, I loved this bar even more than the pumpkin spice bar. Caramel and chocolate are among my top 5 favorite flavor combinations.
Vivra – Orange Passion Bar – Value $7.00
This bar is crafted with dark chocolate and orange flavors. It contains some orange zest, along with passion fruit powder to add an extra kick. I really enjoyed the smoothness of this bar. Dark chocolate can have quite a kick at times, but here the sweet, smooth flavor of the dark chocolate, passion fruit and orange worked really well together.
Wild Ophelia – Caramelized Banana Peanut Butter Cups – Value $3.50
Wild Ophelia is a sister brand to Vosges Haut-Chocolat. Vosges was one of the first specialty chocolate brands I tried when I started becoming interested in specialty chocolate – I’ve loved everything I’ve tried from Vosges, so I was looking forward to trying their new brand.
Caramelized Banana Peanut Butter Cups sounded really interesting to me, and I wasn’t sure that I would enjoy them. Turns out, you can’t really taste the banana, so these are really more similar to peanut butter cups. I have to admit that I was a little disappointed in these. I’ll finish the pack, but I think they could have been better!
Verdict: This Chococurb Mini box has a value of $18.50. I think that for a $20.00 box with free shipping, this is a decent value. Specialty chocolate can be really expensive and it can be difficult to find. I really enjoy getting three specialty products shipped right to my door, with Chococurb choosing the products for me based on the survey I took when I signed up. This month wasn’t the best month ever but I did really enjoy the first two bars, so I consider it a win!
