Posted on January 9, 2018

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 ...

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 ...
