Godiva Snack Lovers Month 2 Chocolate of the Month Club Review
Godiva has entered the subscription game, and now you can get luscious chocolate treats delivered to you every month!
This review is for month two from the Snack Lovers subscription, which costs $65 for three months.
My chocolate came snuggly packed in bubble wrap surrounded by ice packs and an insulated bag! This month, however, the ice packs were completely melted.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Godiva Snack Lovers Subscription May 2018 Review
Before I show you the chocolate for this month, I would like to explain this subscription a bit more. There are four products included in the 3-month subscription. Month 1 sends you one pound of chocolate covered pretzels, month 2 sends you two specialty chocolate bars, and month 3 sends you a 6-piece dark chocolate truffle flight. The total cost for these items alone is $56, which is less than the $65 price for the three months. However, each month is shipped via UPS 2 Day delivery, which adds an extra $56.85 in shipping costs. This brings the total value of the subscription to $112.85.
Last month included a big pamphlet introducing the subscription and the products that would be included, so this month there was less paperwork. There is the included gift message envelope, a coupon, and a sheet detailing what to do if you need to contact Godiva Customer Service.
G by Godiva Milk Chocolate Bar, 2.8 oz – Retail Value $7
This chocolate bar is 42% cocoa and is perfectly smooth and creamy on the palate. The chocolate is supposedly balanced by almonds, vanilla, peaches, and apricots, however, I don’t taste any of that. Maybe my chocolate palate isn’t sophisticated enough? I wish this chocolate bar contained actual almond or fruit pieces to jazz it up, however, because this is a touch boring on its own. Also, this arrived to me slightly melted, as you can see from the photos. The warm-weather guarantee from Godiva means I could have just packaged this back up and sent it back to Godiva for a return or exchange, however, that honestly felt like more trouble than it was worth.
G by Godiva Dark Chocolate Bar, 2.8 oz – Retail Value $7
Normally I enjoy dark chocolate, but this 68% cocoa was just too bitter for me. This chocolate would have really benefited from having something like nuts, caramel, or fruit added to give some added flavor and texture. This didn’t arrive in perfect condition either, however, a bit of time in the fridge took care of that!
The Verdict: I loved month one of this subscription, but month two wasn’t the greatest. I think sending two pure bars of milk and dark chocolate is a mistake for the Snack Lovers Subscription— these would be a better fit in the Taste of Godiva box. Unfortunately, unlike last month, the chocolate arrived a touch melty even though it was packed with ice packs and shipped with the UPS 2 day delivery. Next month will be interesting, as the temperatures in Louisiana will be even hotter.
To Wrap Up:
Can you get this box if you sign up today? Yes, the first month of any Snack Lovers subscription starts with a tin of chocolate covered pretzels, and in the second month, you will get these chocolate bars!
Value Breakdown: The $65 cost for 3 months breaks down to $21.67 a month, and I received $14 worth of Godiva chocolate bars shipped UPS 2 day, which would be an additional $17.95 if I didn’t purchase this subscription.
