Chococurb-February-2017-Dolfin

Dolfin Chocolat Au Lait Noisettes, 1.508 oz. – Value $1.49 USD

Dolfin Chocolate is based out of Belgium and makes wonderful chocolate. This chocolate bar has hazelnuts included and the milk chocolate is so smooth and creamy. It was a delight!

Chococurb-February-2017-Ethereal-Top

Ethereal Confections Macadamia Nut, Raspberry, and Kaffir Lime, 2.25 oz – Value $7.50

This bar is made with 66% Cacao, so it leans on the darker side of chocolate. It has raspberries, macadamia nuts, raspberries, and kaffir lime included. 

Chococurb-February-2017-Ethereal

Here, you can see the back of the bar. I like when the inclusions are sprinkled along the back side of the bar because then you can really get a feel for the different textural elements and flavors. I enjoyed this bar, but I do have to say that I didn’t really taste the kaffir lime at all – the dark chocolate seemed to overpower it a bit!

Chococurb-February-2017-Pitch-Dark

Pitch Dark and Jasmine Pearl Tea Co. Matcha and Nib, 1.86 oz – Value $12.00

I really enjoyed this bar. The chocolate and matcha flavors worked so well together and the crunch from the cacao nibs was the perfect texture component to the bar. This company is based out of Portland and so many of their bars look delicious. I have received this bar in the past, and another Pitch Dark bar in December. I’m not complaining, though!

Chococurb-February-2017-Vivra

Vivra Salted Almond Toffee, 3 oz. – Value $7.50

This bar is also a little more on the dark side. The salted almond toffee flavor was very subtle against the stronger flavor of the chocolate. With that said, I did really enjoy this bar. I love salt, I like almonds, and I love toffee, so it was a win-win-win for me!

Chococurb-February-2017-Antidote

Antidote Strawberry + Hibiscus Milk Chocolate Bar – Value $7.50

This chocolate is marketed as “Big Kid Chocolate.” I love the design of the packaging and the design of the bar itself. The flavor pairing here was perfection. I really loved the strawberry and hibiscus flavors with the milk chocolate. This isn’t a very sweet chocolate bar, even though I initially thought it would be by the flavor inclusions!

Verdict: Chococurb Classic is like a box of dreams each month. 4 full size, artisan chocolate bars, with different flavors, and a smaller bar or truffles thrown in? Sign me up. This month was a great month for me – I enjoyed most of the bars and thought that all of the different pairings were perfect. None of the bars even came close to being the same as another. The value this month comes out to about $36, which is pretty close to being the exact cost of the box. I think this is great, especially considering that artisan chocolate can be (understandably) expensive and difficult to find in some areas! 

Have you tried Chococurb yet?

Bekki first discovered subscription boxes in 2014 and they quickly took over her life! (Not quite, but pretty close.) She started with POPSUGAR Must Have, then moved to Little Lace Box, Birchbox, Hamptons Lane…the rest was history. Her favorite product find is Beekman 1802 Fudge (so, so good) and her favorite boxes are Birchbox and Hamptons Lane…but she’s always looking for a new subscription to try!

  1. I, too, have had a bad experience. Not only do they pretty much ignore my chocolate profile, but they never sent me the last box of my 3-month subscription. They’ve also ignored all my emails asking about that final box.

  2. I do not recommend this subscription as the customer service is terrible. They have not once responded at all to my repeated attempts to cancel and there is no number on the website to call. This week, I received an email that they are trying to charge me for the $35 classic subscription (which I never subscribed to) as they discontinued the nano ($10) instead of just ending my subscription. Also note that their warm weather shipping (up to $20/month depending on the state) applies to any month where the average temp is greater than 72 degrees. This is 6-8 months in most states! So keep in mind you may end up paying $55 for a few bars of chocolate and have to go to your credit card company to cancel.
