Chococurb is a subscription box that sends you a selection of delectable chocolate goodies every month. As a vegan, I was prepared to pass along most (if not all) of the treats to my family, but I was in for a major surprise…
Chococurb hand selects 5 to 7 treats from the top chocolatiers in the world to be included in each box. (You most definitely won’t find any cheapo dollar store chocolate in this subscription.) The folks at Chococurb believe that chocolate is more than just food – it’s an experience to be enjoyed and shared. That’s why they only include the finest treats, made by the best brands. They also have a shop on their site, so if you discover a new chocolate you’d like more of, you can buy it right from there.
Subscriptions are $35/month, or less with multi-month commitments.
I was sent February’s box for review and was completely shocked to find that not one, not two, but ALL of the chocolates in my box were vegan! To say I was happy would be quite the understatement. 🙂
Let’s check out the chocolates!
The chocolates were sent in a blue Chococurb box…
…which contained a smaller, white Chococurb box.
First look. Simple, neat presentation.
Second look… chocolates!
There wasn’t an actual info card, but they did include a sticker and a note about their mission.
Divine Dark Chocolate with Mango & Coconut Bar ($3.99) – This bar is made with a minimum of 70% cocoa solids from fairly traded beans, along with sweet coconut and real mango pieces. I’ve actually had a chocolate bar with dried mango before and it was surprisingly good.
Pacari Chocolate Andean Blueberry Chocolate Bar ($5.99) – I don’t think I’ve ever had chocolate with blueberries, so I’m looking forward to trying this one. It’s made with all natural, organic ingredients and is high in antioxidants thanks to the dark chocolate and blueberry combo. It’s also gluten free and vegan.
Theo Fig Fennel & Almond Dark Chocolate Bar ($3.25) – Okay, now this is a truly unexpected combination of flavors… Dark chocolate, figs, fennel, and almonds. I’m a little nervous to try it, to be honest. The adorable label makes it a little less scary, but I’m definitely not in a hurry to open it. 😉
Dolcetta Artisan Sweets Dark Candied Orange Bar ($4.00) – More cute packaging! The back of the bar reads “Joy is all around us: snowy peaks at sunrise, birds fluttering, flowers blooming, delightful surprises, and sweet little things like this handmade chocolate bar”. Awww. The ingredients consist of just 4 things: 72% dark chocolate, sugar, orange zest, and water.
Taza Chocolate Raspberry Nib Crunch Bar ($5.75) – A handmade bar made with 60% dark stone ground chocolate, raspberry oil, and cocoa nibs. Organic, non-GMO, gluten free, and vegan. Mmm!
Marou Ben Tre 78% Chocolate Bar ($9.00) – A pure, intense chocolate bar made with 78% cocoa solids and 22% cane sugar. Crafted in Saigon using the highest quality Vietnamese ingredients.
TCHO Dark Chocolate Square (~$1.00?) – A mini dark chocolate square with notes of citrus.
Wow! I still can’t believe everything in this box was vegan-friendly. The universe clearly wanted me to be stocked with yummy chocolates for Valentine’s Day! No complaints here.
Aside from the coincidental vegan-ness, I thought Chococurb put together a great box with a nice mix of unique flavored, high quality chocolates. The total estimated value of everything comes to about $33, which is close to the price of the box. Not a crazy high value, but it’s more about the experience of discovering new chocolates, which they totally delivered.
What do the stars mean?
