October 2016

Posted on November 6, 2016

Ready to see what October’s box included?

Let’s go ahead and reveal them, bar by bar.

Bar A

This was such a unique but also perfect bar for the season that we had to include it.

Oh, and before you jump to conclusions, it’s not a pumpkin spice latte flavored bar! (Although that’s not TOO far off…)

This bar was obviously salt plus another seasonal flavor. If you HAD to guess what the flavor is, just based on knowing that it’s seasonal, it would probably be the first thing that jumps to mind. So we hope you didn’t overthink this one…

72% Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt & Pumpkin IPA by Salazon Chocolate

We didn’t really know what to expect when sampling this one. And if we’re being perfectly honest here, we didn’t think it really tasted much like pumpkin. What did you think?

Although that isn’t to say that this wasn’t an enjoyable bar! We enjoyed the dark chocolate with a sprinkling of salt, and we think it’s definitely a good autumn bar either way.

All right, now let’s move on to the next one.

Bar B

This bar takes a very common flavor combination with chocolate (so they’re off to a good start) and combines it with another one to make it unique.

And guess what?

That second flavor that they combined it with is the same as the last bar.

Salt, that’s right! (your memory isn’t THAT bad, is it?)

And the other inclusion is…

dark-chocolate-with-salted-almond-madecasse

63% Dark Milk Chocolate with Salted Almonds by Madecasse

A proven chocolate maker, Madecasse decided to play by the rulebook here. Take some high-quality, heirloom cocoa, build the bar all the way from the bean, toss in some almonds, and finish it with some sea salt.

Nice. Well played, Madecasse.

 

Bar C

This bar is definitely the one that stands out from the other two.

One, it’s white chocolate, not dark. Two, it did NOT contain sea salt as an inclusion.

So what did it contain? Let’s see.

white-chocolate-with-pistachios-amadei

White Chocolate with Pistachios by Amedei

We’ve had Amedei in a couple other previous boxes and we like them because they’re a quirky but high-end Italian chocolate maker. The descriptions of their bars on the boxes are very exaggerated and romantic — and we love that.

And that’s the October 2016 box!

How did you like it? We’d love to hear!

Don't be a bad friend. Share the deliciousness:
