Box Reveals

September 2017

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 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 ...

This was a box of "yets". As in, each bar had one main quality but also one somewhat contrasting feature as well. You'll see what we mean once you start looking through each bar reveal, but consider this month an experience in chocolate juxtaposition and interesting contrasting flavors. First up, we had a limited edition bar from a chocolate maker that loves making bars with interesting inclusions. Bar A We called this one “fruity yet ...

March 2017

Posted on April 5, 2017

Ah March...the season of crazy weather (at least here in North Carolina), NCAA basketball, and the anticipation of the coming spring and summer. One of the primary implications of that being the availability of fresh fruit and vegetables, which we always eagerly anticipate. So, in celebration of the impending arrival of fresh fruits coming to a farmer's market near you, we decided to feature fruits in each of the three bars. Which fruits ...

Hey there! We just wrapped up another very successful Mystery Chocolate Box and we're ready to share it with you. Let's see what February 2017's box is all about. Bar A Most of you probably scratched your heads with this bar. And yes, we admit, this was a very tough one, for two reasons... Reason #1: The inclusion wasn't a very strong flavor, although you could definitely taste something that told you that it wasn't a plain dark ...

Welcome to the last Mystery Chocolate Box of 2016! Let's see what we closed the year out with (before we dive into our January 2017 box, of course!) Bar A This is one of those bars that we knew was going to be good just by the inclusions. Well, we suppose there's always a chance that the chocolate maker could have totally messed it up even with the dreamy list of included flavors, but those odds are pretty small. (Although I've seen it ...
