March 2017 Chococurb review time!

Let’s see what’s in my March 2017 Chococurb box!
Everything was shipped in a small blue box with the Chococurb logo on top.
A peek inside!
They don’t typically include an info card, since the boxes are curated based on each subscriber’s individual taste preferences. However, many of the chocolates can be found in their online shop where you can find out more about each one.
I’ve had this bar once before and I remember it being quite good. 🙂 It’s made with smooth 70% dark chocolate blended with sweet toasted coconut for a subtle tropical vibe. Not only is it made with organic, fair trade ingredients, but it’s also vegan-friendly and soy-free.
This premium “from tree to bar” chocolate was made in Ecuador using organic, sustainably sourced ingredients including 60% cacao, cane sugar, and mint essence. It’s vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, and a 2015 International Chocolate Awards winner.
What a pretty chocolate bar! — And its ingredients are just as unique as its colorful speckled exterior. It features milk chocolate, cream, pureed pumpkin, lemon, ginger, and other pure ingredients. Sounds delicious!
Taza uses minimally processed, stone-ground chocolate to produce their premium line of chocolate bars. Sea Salt & Almond consists of organic cacao beans, organic cane sugar, organic almonds, organic cocoa butter, organic vanilla beans, and sea salt. It’s 100% vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, and soy-free. Since it’s stone ground/minimally processed, the texture isn’t as smooth as most chocolate, but you get used to it. 😉 The almonds added just the right amount of crunch and I enjoyed this a lot more than “plain” Taza bars.
Hand molded and packaged in Portland, Oregon, this bean to bar chocolate features 62% cacao infused with matcha tea from The Jasmine Pearl Tea Co. (also based in Portland). It also includes cacao nibs for additional flavor and crunch.
Yet another impressive box of artisan chocolates from Chococurb! There was a nice mix of unique flavor combinations and of course I was thrilled by the fact they 4 out of my 5 bars were vegan-friendly. 😉 Remember — if you’d like to try Chococurb, you can save 10% on your first order with coupon code “ROSEBUDS“!
