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!
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.
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!
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!
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!
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!
