Chocoholics, you're in for an awakening. Chuao Chocolatier's decadent chocolates are made from cacao sourced from Venezuelas most famous chocolate region. The artisanal bars come in a range of unexpected 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. And the decadent Orange A Go Go mixes a rich dark chocolate with candied orange and bergamot for a zesty kick.
I am so happy Birchbox brought them back because they are so hard to find in my local stores. My husband isn't a huge chocolate lover but he LOVES firecracker so I stocked up for Christmas. I love firecracker and the honeycomb because I love the dark chocolate with those little crunchy/chewy bits of honeycomb. YUM!5
I did not enjoy the spiciness of this chocolate at all. If you like that combination you probably will, but that is not my taste.2
So far I've tried two different chuao chocolate bars and I absolutely love them! I want to order the variety pack so I can try them all.5
This chocolate bar tasted great and I like the creative flavors. I've had the firework which was clever with the chipotle and pop-rocks-like candy that crackled. I also go the pop corn pop thinking it would have popcorn in it, but sadly it was just crispy rice with pop-rocks in it as well. It's worth a try, but maybe just for a special treat.3
At first I was really thrown by the name of the sample I received. I was afraid it would be something like the dreaded buttered popcorn jelly bean but I was pleasantly surprised. In fact I wanted another as soon as it was gone. The chocolate itself was a little masked by the rest of the ingredients but didn't disappear. All in all I liked it a lot!5
I bought a few chocolate bars for stocking stuffer gifts. Everyone loved them! Perfect price and size for a small gift or to attach to the top of gift.5
I guess for an artisan bar that is rather high in price I expect something that will really knock my socks off. This wasn't it. It wasn't bad but I certainly wouldn't pay the price for a full-sized bar.3
I received a sample and enjoyed it so much that I ordered the Pop Corn Pop flavor to try something new. Very unique taste and the "popping" has the consistency of pop rocks in your mouth.5
The minute I tasted the sample I knew i had to have more - more - and then some more. The firecracker chocolate is like no other before. You're not really quite sure what you're eating but you know you want more!5
I tried the Pop Corn Pop flavor and I was in chocolate heaven. I loved how it actually pops in your mouth and how there was hints of salt through out the chocolate bar. I will be asking my boyfriend to buy me all the flavors for Christmas.
5 stars!! You will not regret getting these chocolates!
