YUMMY CHOCOLATE OF THE DAY
I KNOW, RIGHT?!
It's been a long time since I did a YCOTD, but to be frank, I haven't been eating as much chocolate as I'd like. Well, actually, that's not 100% true, I'm not eating as much INTERESTING chocolate as I'd like. Shut up, I'm supposed to be eating better. If I tell people about the chocolate, I'd have to count it as real food!
I recently ordered a sample collection of Chuao chocolates from Birchbox. Birchbox is basically a very girly, makeup-beauty-lifestyle subscription service where you get a box of 4 or 5 different kinds of samples in the mail every month. Sometimes you get awesome stuff and sometimes it's kind of meh, but I love it because I've found a lot of different products that I really like without having to buy a full size product. Also, I love getting mystery boxes in the mail. I can't help it.
Anyways, sometimes Birchbox sends samples of snacks in the boxes and since I loved the sample of Chuao that they sent me, I ordered the entire box, which is 7 small bars, all of different types AND they're only 50 calories each. Not bad, really. I'd had some of the Chuao chocolate before, and I knew I liked it, but I wanted a more complete idea of the bars they offered, so this sample box was a great thing. Each piece is about two inches long, and about 1/3 of an ounce, so it's enough without being too much.
The first one I tried was called Spicy Maya, which is described as "seductive cinnamon, pasilla chili and warming cayenne bedded in dark chocolate."
Oh, chocolate, I've been away way too long. *Swoon*
PS: Sorry if this review sounds a bit porny. I have just really, really, really missed good quality chocolate. You have no idea.
