Chococurb is an artisan chocolate box.  They have three subscription ‘sizes’ so to speak: their mini, which is what I am reviewing today, the nano (review coming soon!) 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!


OK people, ChocoCurb has the right idea when it comes to shipping chocolate. They shipped it in a cooler. A COOLER with ICE PACKS. It was 108 degrees at my house today, and only one teeny little truffle was a bit soft when I received my box. Everything else was perfectly intact – that’s how you ship chocolate in the summer!


Look at those luscious chocolate bars – all nice and perfectly unmelted…some subs could take a page from Chococurb for sure!  


Dick Taylor Craft Chocolate – Maple Coconut – $8.50

This is the second time I’ve received this bar from Chococurb, but I’m not complaining! I love it. Dick Taylor chocolate comes in the best packaging on the market. It’s a very high quality paper envelope, embossed and etched with an illustration – this would be awesome chocolate to gift.  

The top of the chocolate bar was embossed with a gorgeous design, and the back of it was sprinkled with coconut. It is 72% Belize chocolate (fun fact: I’m married to a Belizean, so this excited me!) so it is definitely on the darker side of the chocolate scale. I barely tasted the coconut, which was fine with me! It was amazingly smooth for dark chocolate and had a definite sweet flavor that wasn’t too strong.  


Willie’s Cacao – Milk of the Gods – Rio Caribe 44 – $2.00?

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. Put simply, I’m bummed (and maybe relieved) that I can’t find this one on Chococurb’s website, because I might have purchased quite a bit of it!


Ethereal Confections – Caramel Almonds, Cacao Nibs, and Sea Salt – $7.50?

Another beautifully packaged chocolate bar! This is 66% cacao, so it leans to the dark side (Darth Vader would be happy). It is dairy free, and made here in the US! This bar has the almonds, cacao nibs and sea salt scattered across the back of the chocolate bar, instead of mixed in. It’s delicious, and the flavors hit your palate at different times because it’s not all mixed in together. I really liked this one!

Verdict: I really enjoyed this shipment of Chococurb Mini. All of the bars were excellent, and the value came out to $18.00. Yes, that is a little lower than the box cost, but I think you have to go into this box knowing that they’re sending you super high quality chocolate and some times the value will be lower than other times. 

The fact that these chocolate bars are made my individual artisans and up and coming companies is really cool. Making chocolate is hard, laborious, and time consuming work and I am willing to shell out a bit more for some delicious bars that I can’t find in my area!

Have you tried Chococurb yet?

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’m still waiting for my July box. Received no shipping notification, and 2 emails and a tweet in the last 2 weeks without a response.

    • Just updating that I did finally get a response from Chococurb.

  2. I was really excited about this box until I saw that styrofoam cooler. Styrofoam is so awful for the environment; there are much better ways to keep things cold.

  3. Wow! I love it, adding this to the “want it” list. I worked for an airline and my boss was from Europe- I was absolutely spoiled on receiving a lot of fancy chocolate from all over the place. I miss those days! This would be so fun!

  4. Forget the chocolate – I “was” married to a Belizean too! LOL! You rarely see anyone who even knows someone from there! One day I want my kids to go see their dads country.
    I haven’t ever heard of their chocolate tho!

  5. That is a lot of packaging for 3 chocolate bars, I understand that it is needed to prevent melting. Besides the cost and value, I think subscribers should also be concerned with the amount of waste some subscriptions are creating just with the excessive packaging.

    • The packaging doesn’t seem wasteful to me. I live near Chicago and we have been roasting hot here. That being said I’m disappointed that it’s just candy bars and no other types of chocolate.

      • It doesn’t seem wasteful to me either if it gets the job done. Those cooler boxes are pretty durable. You can reuse them many times over. This time of year when it is so very very hot outside they are handy to have in the car for trips to the grocery store.

        I was pleased to see they included a milk chocolate bar this month. However, they would still need to add many more milk chocolate options for me to consider subscribing. Currently they have 150 dark chocolate items and only 46 milk chocolate options in their store. Out of the 46 there are 6 that are sold out. If you are like me and don’t care for sea salt in your chocolate that narrows the selection even further.

        • I thought I might be the only one who doesn’t like sea salt in my chocolate (or caramel for that matter)!
          Its so hard to find stuff without it anymore, I’ll be happy when this sea salt craze is over 🙂

          I might sub to this box one of these days and get either the $20 or $30 box so that I can have it customized to mostly include just milk chocolate

    • Its not considered wasteful if its the bare minimum necessary to ensure a successful delivery. Besides, many of the other sub boxes that are a nice quality and reusable for storage, organizing, or gifting things in. I even reuse the tissue they come with if I can.
