Chuao Chocolatier's 8 piece Chocopod Set makes a great gift for anyone with a sweet tooth.

Birchbox Breakdown

Chocoholics, you’re in for an awakening. Chuao Chocolatier's decadent chocolates are made from cacao sourced from Venezuela’s most famous chocolate region. The artisanal bars come in a range of exciting flavors that go way beyond sweet — think salty, crisp, spicy. You’ll be spoiled for life.

How it Works

Chuao's unconventional chocolate bars come in a spectrum of flavors. There’s Spicy Maya, dark chocolate infused with pasilla chile, cayenne pepper, and cinnamon; Firecracker, dark chocolate filled with popping candy and a touch of chipotle; and Salted Chocolate Crunch, which has sea salt and toasted breadcrumbs. Adventurous foodies can try Maple Bacon Bar, a mouthwatering mix of milk chocolate and bacon drizzled in maple; Pop Corn Pop, popping candy, puffed whole grains, and toasted corn chips with a hint of sea salt; and Honeycomb, a decadent dark bar with crunchy, caramelized honey. For nut lovers, there’s the Ravishing Rocky Road Bar, which features salted caramelized almonds and fluffy marshmallows in a bed of milk. Last but not least is Orange A Go Go, which mixes a rich dark chocolate with candied orange and bergamot for a zesty kick.

The potato chip is so good

I'm obsessed with these chocolates. It's pretty unfortunate I can't order them through Birchbox and get points for them anymore!

bacon choco great combo
Sampled

I've seen bacon fanatics mix their beloved with some odd bedfellows - so I was a bit skeptical about the bacon and chocolate option offered as a sample. I gave it a try after dinner while relaxing on the couch. GREAT EXPERIENCE. I expected a chunk of bacon slammed inside a chocolate leaf but the bacon here is subtle, really more so a pleasant aftertaste.

The chocolate was of a great quality, smooth and decadent. I will certainly enjoy this again in the future.

Tasty little guys

We have this chocolate line in local stores & I enjoy all of their concoctions. The potato chip, spicy pepper, and crunchy honeycomb ones are my favorites so far. The snack sized bars hit the spot when you just need a little sweet.

This bar is perfect. The bacon pieces are small and melt in your mouth and just the right amount of sea salt. It's basically perfect.

Popcorn Pop & Potato Chip

I got some mini bars as samples free with purchase. The potato chip one has nice chocolate, with a crunch, but I couldn't taste the salt that much. The Popcorn one tasted a lot better in my opinion - it has lots of popping candy in it, and what seems like bits of rice - delicious. I also liked the way the mini bars were in the shape of leaves.

I've been wanting to try these for awhile, but most of the time I tried to buy them, they were sold out. I was very excited when I received the email from birchbox saying they had been restocked. I bought the popcorn flavor and it's delicious! It's not too sweet or savory, just the perfect combination. I break off a little piece for my treat after dinner.
