… the wrapper attracts;
… the cute name;
… everybody needs a pacifier now & then & this fills the gap… nuk-nuk.

All adds up to kiddie porn.

And judging from Spotify's® sex playlist (yes, Google, FB, NSA know what music everyone's having sex to), apparently young'uns now engage in full bang-on intercourse (e.g. Let's Get Started by Dylan Gardner).

Oh, branding & marketing can be soo deceptive.
Appearance   3.3 / 5
Color: mudcake
Surface: chipped & flaked
Temper: receding
Snap: snug; nice break line
Aroma   6.9 / 10
basic kidz stuff: vanilla-coconut & a wisp (or whips) of leather (this just in: preteen adolescents "learn the ropes" from 50 Shades of Gray, & child abuse re-classified again as 'tough love')
Mouthfeel   12.7 / 15
Texture: initial hard tack breaks down into big fat
Melt: covers the playlist - 2x
Flavor   45.5 / 50
just creams it right off… chocolate cream -> goes peanuts -> vanilla -> date -> caramel -> coconut -> marshmallow -> cherry blossom… whew -- all in sweet succession
Quality   18.2 / 20
Surprisingly contagious… deceiving quality.

That cream puff opening suggests Venezuela; the marshmallow Colombia yet neither constitute any of this narrow blend.

Vanilla a key element (vanilla accented rather than vanilla driven; seems the Tahitian variety) & the complex a bit simple (core cocoa with very proximate complements). But what hedonics from the first beat all the way thru to the throat-clearing finish. And hyper-clean too throughout. The roast unbelievably even / consistent. The refinement perhaps a bit overweening to yield a mainstream / streamline profile that nonetheless should garner a standing O from tastebuds (most) everywhere (except for jaded purists looking to get their tongues twerked by volatile acids). That it operates in an enviable position with equipment that other barsmiths drool over means that Chocxo can crush the cacáo in a handful of hours compared to the usual days it takes in melangeur-years.

Yep, this Chocxo's some serious stuff. For the grownup kid in everyone.

A 'go-to' bar for fulfilling that daily chocolate habit. And they're just getting started; wait til they really get a bead on their beans. Put 'em on the 'must-watch' list.

INGREDIENTS: cocoa mass, sugar, cocoa butter, lecithin; vanilla
