Let’s see what’s in my July 2017 Chococurb box!
In the warmer months, Chococurb ships their box inside of foam chest with a cooling pack to prevent the chocolates from melting.
A peek inside. — All of the chocolates were tucked into an insulated silver pouch.
At first I thought this was a mint chocolate bar, but upon further inspection — actually reading the label — I discovered that it’s actually flavored with Sencha green tea. I’ve had Dolfin (dark) chocolate for the first time not too long ago and it was absolutely delicious. This particular bar is made with their signature Belgian milk chocolate infused with Sencha green tea from Japan. An interesting combo!
The Mayana Space Bar looks/sounds like a more grown up, sophisticated take on a Snickers bar. It features toasted almonds, vanilla bean nougat and fleur de sel caramel — all coated in smooth, 66% dark chocolate. The bar is surprisingly heavy and it’s probably a good thing that the nutritional info isn’t included on the box. 😉
YES!! I was thrilled to see these vegan-friendly dark chocolate almond butter cups in this month’s box. I didn’t even know Theo made a vegan version of ’em. Not only are these delectable bites vegan, but they’re also certified organic, fair trade, non-GMO, and palm & soy free.
Amedei bars always have such neat, detailed packaging. Unlike the other Amedei bars I’ve received, this one features white milk chocolate infused with fine, green Italian-grown pistachios. The combination must be impressive, as this bar is an Academy of Chocolate 2016 Gold winner.
Two small Jcoco bars from Seattle Chocolates were included — Agave Quinoa Sesame and Vanuatu Coconut Pecan. Both milk chocolate based bars are made with all natural ingredients and are non-GMO, as well as gluten-free.
As always, Chococurb came through on their promise of unique artisan chocolates. My favorite this month was — not surprisingly — the vegan-friendly Theo dark chocolate almond butter cups. Yum!! 😀 Remember — if you’d like to try Chococurb, you can save 10% on your first order with coupon code “ROSEBUDS“!
