Bar A I always love the bars that we get from this chocolate maker because they're really a combination of dark chocolate (duh) and random selection of delicious items that you could obtain from the bulk section of your local organic grocery store. Or, in other words, these bars are what we would expect to get if you let your 5-year old loose in said bulk section and told them to grab some choice selections to be made into chocolate. Well, ...

Bar A This bar comes from one of our favorite chocolate makers in London. We actually like them because they do some wondrous things with milk chocolate, but this is actually a 70% dark chocolate bar. So, clearly they know their way around the dark side of the chocolate force as well. But anyway, it's just one spice that lends its flavor to this bar, perplexing most that taste it. The people that guess this bar right off the bat tend to be ...

Bar A Okay, probably not the hardest bar to guess, but its delicious enough that we didn't really care if it was a giveaway. Anyway, the highlights in this bar started with the consistency of the dark chocolate — a great balance between "dry", overly tempered super dark chocolate and the soft creaminess of the lightest milk chocolate bars. then, of course, the inclusions. two of them, one crunchy and one, well, obvious. 55% Dark ...

This month we enjoyed chocolate bars from two newcomers to Mystery Chocolate Box! Delicious chocolate all around, of course, so let's go ahead and take a look back at what we enjoyed last month: Bar A This bar was so intriguing (and tasty, of course) that we HAD to put it into a Mystery Chocolate Box. It's actually the first bar that we've tried that has included its, well, inclusions in the form of herbs.  It's sort of — or perhaps ...

We finished out 2017 strong with a delicious assortment of artisan chocolate bars! Ready to see what we enjoyed last month? Here we go! Bar A When we first saw this bar, we knew we had to try it. It includes two of my personal favorite fruits that pair with chocolate well, so I knew it was going to be a winner. In fact, my only worry was hoping that the maker didn't find someway to screw it up. (That would be like an NBA star airballing a ...

Ready to see what treats we enjoyed this month? Let's run through each bar one by one! Bar A So....yeah.

Bar A This is a dark chocolate bar that features a different kind of subtle sweetness. The chocolate is right in what we consider the sweet spot. It's not too bitter, not too sweet, not too creamy, not too firm, not too soft, not too crunchy...you get the idea. This one's hard to put your finger on exactly what inclusion is lending it's soft, sweet flavor to the bar. Turns out, it's sweet because it IS an ingredient commonly used as a ...

It's time to reveal our August 2017 selections! In this box, one bar was a simpleton, another bar had quite the filling, and the third bar incorporated a delicious French dessert. Here's how it all played out: Bar A No frills here -- just dark chocolate and one inclusion, a gentle flavor that lightens up the chocolate and adds a bit of sweetness. It's a fairly basic bar, so we're really just itching to go ahead and show it. So we ...

In this box, we took a bit of a healthy angle to show that chocolate doesn't always have to be viewed as an "unhealthy" food. In fact, we believe that certain types of chocolate really are healthy. Plus, it all depends on how you approach it -- an 80% chocolate bar with little added sugar is a whole lot healthier of a dessert option than a hot fudge sundae. However...a lot of you grumbled a bit about the relative lack of tastiness in a ...
