When a box filled with some of the finest chocolate in the world drops on your front doorstep you know it’s a good day! Cocoa Runners Chocolate Box* is filled with the finest chocolate hand picked by them. They knew me very well and filled my box with some tasty dark chocolate bars to ensure it was a healthy treat for me to enjoy!
The box is filled with handpicked bars and information about each, plus a little guide on how to really taste and enjoy chocolate. As a huge chocoholic I thought I knew how to enjoy chocolate, but it turns out I don’t! I’ve really been opened up to a whole new world of chocolate. The little guides really helped me learn how to savour a piece of chocolate and not just wolf it down like usual!
The Menakao Madagascan Vanilla Milk Chocolate was a little naughty as it wasn’t a dark chocolate but instead a smooth and creamy milk chocolate with strong vanilla flavours. As it says on the description it was very fudgy like which was quite unusual yet enjoyable.
The Francois Pralus Cuba Chocolate Bar is exactly what dark chocolate such be, deep, dark, rich, sharp yet creamy all in one heavenly bite. The joy with this bar is that only a few small bites are enough to satisfy any sweet cravings, anymore and it’s too much. This bar has been with me for nearly two weeks now and I’m still nibbling my way through it!
The second dark chocolate bar was The Grenada Chocolate Company Salty-licious bar. This bar is Caribbean sea salt in 71% chocolate. Now I love salted cameral but I had not yet tried salted chocolate. As with the previous bar a couple of bites are enough to get your sweet hit. It’s a little less creamy than the previous bar but the salt really mixes well with the sweetness of the chocolate.
The final bar was a double delight, on one side there was a sweet and buttery caramel milk chocolate and the other was a fudgy milk chocolate with aromas of coffee, creating a wonderful café-latte-chocolate taste. The Zotter Labooka Chocolate was very reminiscent of the first bar – a little less guilt-free and a little more milky, creamy and soft. Matt adored the caramel bar and said it was like a very posh, much improved Caramac bar.
I’ve had my Cocoa Runner Box for about two weeks now and the only bar that has completely disappeared is the Caramel one. The joy with the finest quality chocolate is that just a few squares are enough. I often snap off a couple of squares in the evening and enjoy it with a cuppa.
I really love the concept of Cocoa Runners – who wouldn’t! The time they spend to source the finest chocolate producers in the world from Brooklyn to Budapest really creates a lust-worthy box that had ruined mainstream chocolate for me now – I now know what REAL chocolate tastes like! I love knowing that these chocolates aren’t pumped full of chemicals but are just packed full of antioxidants.
Cocoa Runners Boxes can be bought as a one off (perfect birthday or even Christmas present!), or as an on-going monthly delivery (an even better present!).
