Standard Cocoa Subscription Box February 2013 Review

Hey Everybody!

I just got my very first Standard Cocoa box today.
Cost: $27.50/month

Every month, Standard Cocoa features a select craft chocolate maker. They select 3 bars of chocolate and send them out once a month from the featured chocolate maker.

This month's featured chocolate maker was Fresco Chocolate.

#219 Papua New Guinea Chocolate 
Retail Value: $8

#214 Madagascar Chocolate
Retail Value: $7

UPDATE: This chocolate was a little bit too dark for me. When it's too dark, it tastes more like baking cocoa to me. I didn't like it that much. 

#223 Dominican Republic Chocolate
Retail Value: $8

UPDATE: This was the very first chocolate bar that I tasted out of this bunch. The wrapper says that the best way to eat it is to just let it melt in your mouth, so I did that. For spending almost $10 a chocolate bar, I was really hoping that the chocolate would taste absolutely amazing. I was a little bit disappointed. It's not that the bar tasted bad, it just didn't taste amazing. I have spent much less on a chocolate bar that tasted just as good, if not better. It had a very rich dark chocolate taste. I just wouldn't spend that much on a chocolate bar again. 

Total Value of the Box: $23

This would be a really good box for all of you chocolate lovers out there. I'm really excited to taste these, especially the Madagascar chocolate, that recipe even got a reward for how good it is! I will be sure to update this post after I try all of the chocolates to let you guys know how they taste!

Don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel and follow me on Twitter! I will post all of the links below.

  1. This box looks pretty fun! I too would expect it be amazing for $10/bar, but it is a nice way to sample them!
