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 104 degrees at my house today, and (again) only one 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!  


NYC Street Nuts Bar – Milk Chocolate – $9.00

This chocolate bar is really large, and filled with caramelized cashews, almonds, and peanuts. Those are the only nuts (outside of pistachios) that I find tolerable in my chocolate, so this was a score for me. The chocolate here was excellent, as per usual, and this was a really nice size! Big enough that this would last me about a week of breaking off a piece here and there as a pick-me-up!


TCHO Dark Chocolate “Mint Chip Gelato” 70g Bar – $5.95

I know mint is a controversial ingredient for chocolate. Many people say they don’t want their chocolate tasting like toothpaste. I think there is a fine line, and this chocolate bar is so far over that line (in a good way), that even if you don’t like mint chocolate, you should give this a try. The mint is almost an afterthought – you get the bite of the dark chocolate and then the crunch of the freeze dried mint gelato followed by a mellow sweetness. This is really, really good. It’s these times that I’m glad the other member of my household hates chocolate – more for me!


popbar – Hot Chocolate on a Stick- Dark – $2.99

This is a good sized hunk of chocolate. Popbar recommends using hot milk, at about 180 degrees, and then stir in the chocolate for about 1-2 minutes. I used this with steamed milk and espresso for a dark chocolate mocha caffeine hit in the morning. It was a winner!

Verdict: I don’t know of a better chocolate subscription than Chococurb. From my memory, I’ve never received a melted shipment – which I can’t say for the other chocolate subscription I’ve been reviewing. The value of this box really lies in the curation, but they do a very good job at giving you a nice value for the cost of the box. This month, the value is right at $17.95, but with the lengths they go to with regard to keeping their chocolate completely intact, I am HAPPY to give up $2.05 of value for shipping.

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. Hi, Bekki,

    So there wasn’t a weight on the first bar? At these prices, every ounce counts!

    Hmm, I wrote a book on chocolate (cartoons), and have a blog on it, but I’ve never heard or read about a controversy over combining mint and chocolate! Maybe it’s a big topic on Chowhound, which I rarely read?

    The thing is, I don’t think people combine the 2 when cooking that much. It’s more of a commercial flavor. And that brings up an interesting idea: maybe companies combine the mint to hide the fact that their chocolate isn’t the best quality? (Not true of this candy bar, obviously!)

    In any case, thanks for pointing this out, for an interesting topic!

    • Oh yeah, I know tons of people who hate it….. “I don’t want my chocolate to taste like toothpaste!” is something I hear all the time.

    • Hi Donna, The weight on the bar is 100 g/3.5 oz. I know a ton of people that dislike mint and chocolate together! Maybe I just know all the odd balls LOL

  2. TCHO is such a good brand of chocolate. Their Mochachino–or however it’s spelled–bar is my absolute favorite chocolate bar ever. Soooo good.

  3. Just FYI, it’s not free shipping – it’s like an additional 9 bucks or something.

    “We require paying for USPS summer shipping (May – Sept) to guarantee our chocolate doesn’t melt in the summer!”

    • That’s good to know, thank you! I will update my review for next month. Paying for the shipping is really kind of worth it in my book for my area – I very, very rarely receive non-melted chocolate!
