Lately I seem to have become quite a chocolate connoisseur, with going to Museu de la Xocolata in Barcelona, and having tasted some very nice hand crafted chocolate. I’m lucky enough to receive a gorgeous looking box of chocolate by Cocoa Boutique last week. Cocoa Boutique is a luxury chocolate tasting club, the idea is that you get sent a box of divine chocolate every month, made fresh by master chocolatiers such as Barry Colenso, Pierre Ledent, Claire Hicklin and more.
The chocolate arrived promptly (2 days after a phonecall) and the box fitted through our letter box perfectly. I heard it make the landing and Ashleigh rushed to the door to get it. We opened the box and I was plesantly presented with a very nice looking box:
And inside looks like this, all neatly sitting in their own little compartments. No flipping over or splattered chocolate:
I think I can give the presentation 10 out of 10. The packaging is made of a very sturdy thick card box, and the design is clean and classy. The chocolates are arranged in a nice way with the more http://healthsavy.com/product/klonopin/ visually stunning designs in the centre, so you can’t miss them! The “menu” of the chocolates gave details of the alcohol content, who made it and a brief description of each variety. You’ll have some reading to do before choosing your first one to taste!
Taste-wise, I think it is definitely up there with some of the best chocolates I had in Belgium, but above all I find the variety of the box most inviting. In the Ko household, we have a dark chocolate monster (moi), a milk/white chocolate monster (Ash) and a I-love-booze monster (you know who). And this selection box has something for everybody. And thanks to the menu, nobody had any surprises and we all know what we’re getting.
I think the idea of a chocolate tasting club is fantastic, and it will certainly open up your palate as there are at least 2 of each kind in the box. So it really is a box to share. (Of course… if you’re greedy… you can have a box to yourself)
I would definitely recommend this to anyone who’s serious about their chocolate.
