Wild Ophelia Caramelized Crispy Rice Bar, 2oz – Retail Value $3.50

I really enjoyed this bar. Creamy milk chocolate (41%), crispy rice and a melt in your mouth texture. Wild Ophelia bars are both Fair Trade and non-GMO chocolate and I was surprised to learn they are the “spirited younger sister” of parent company Vosges. That explains the high quality coming out of this bar.

Elements Truffles Raspberry Infused w/ Beet Root Bar, 2oz. – Retail Value $8.00

As impressive as the packaging was I personally wasn’t wowed by this one. In its defense, it’s definitely a quality piece of chocolate with strong raspberry tones and made as organic and natural as they come. If I was a bigger fan of fruit-mixed chocolates, this would definitely be on my list to try again. Made from Fair Trade organic cacao ethically sourced from Peru, 25% of the profits go towards the education of underprivileged children.

Jcoco Bali Sea Salt Toffee in Milk Chocolate Bar, 1oz. – Retail Value $2.50

I love toffee. I love milk chocolate. And I love sea salt. These little 1oz. bars were heaven…and they included 3 in the box! The way the chocolate and sea salt melt together in your mouth is almost magical and the toffee is just the cherry on the cake. All natural ingredients, non-GMO, gluten free and rainforest alliance certified.

Fran’s Park Bar – Retail Value $4.50

An unassuming little piece of candy heaven, with peanuts and caramel in milk chocolate. My first thought went immediately to “this tastes like a Snickers” but when the flavors started to set in it was apparent this was way out of the league of supermarket checkout candy. Small size but packs a quality punch. Good stuff.

Joe Chocolates Coffee Honey Almond Dark Chocolate – Retail Value $6.99

I saved the best for last (in my opinion). This 2.5oz package of chocolate chunks was as good as the packaging made me think it would be. I’m a big fan of chocolate covered coffee beans so I was eager to rip this open and try it out. I loved the rustic texture and whole almonds strewed about. You can definitely taste the Seattle roasted coffee beans in there too. This is definitely something I’d throw in my pack to take hiking or camping alongside some granola. This is heavy-duty chocolate.

The Verdict: My favorite, and honestly I think the best value, was the Joe’s Chocolates bag. Definitely a product I will pick up and try again. And like I said it’s definitely something I’d take hiking for some extra energy. There wasn’t anything I disliked in the box, but out of personal taste, I wasn’t crazy about the Elements raspberry bar. All in all, this is a great sample of chocolate and would be great to share with a group of friends over coffee or a couple bottles of wine. My only negative review tidbit is value. The total value this month is $30.49 and based on the $35 a month box price, you’re paying full retail price for the chocolate. However, you are saving on not having them all delivered individually.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. Order by the 10th of April to get the April box! You can, however, find some of the bars featured in this box on the Chococurb site shop!

  1. Isn’t the elements truffle bar impressively creamy for being dairy free? I got two in my go love yourself box this month (one to keep, one to share!). It made a great gift for a dear friend who loves chocolate but has a lot of dietary restrictions

    • I thought it was definitely a high quality chocolate bar, but I’m not really into fruit blends…so it wasn’t my favorite.

  2. How did you get $30.49 for the value? I get $25.49. Even worse.

    • Thanks for the info. And I agree, I wasn’t impressed with the value for the Feb box as you are paying full retail for the chocolate and still paying even more for the subscription. And if you can find them even cheaper than I did, that is something. Hopefully the March box will make up for the value difference.

    • I think he was figuring the little Jcoco bars at $2.50 each, not total for all 3.

      • Ah – my oversight. Thanks Annie!

      • Yes…you are correct. So it’s $7.50 total for 3, but only $2.50 for one.
