Box Chocolate Review

Brown Paper

Info Details
Country USA   (Houston, TX)
Style New School      
Chocolate-cubed: square blocks of cocoa, each studded, spiked, or set with usually 3 different flavorings, done up in plain brown-paper boxes ala a UPS truck without the driver... making it quite accident-prone.
Presentation   5 / 5
cross between a bar & a box: a (kind of) bar in a box (of sorts)
Aromas   3.9 / 5
kitchen counter
Textures/Melt   8.2 / 10
Shells: chunk block
Centers: fudge-like
Flavor   36.4 / 50
haphazard mosh-pit of assembled flavors – fruits, nuts & seeds, liquors, spices & herbs... the whole werks; some combine well / others just reckless
Quality   18.6 / 30
Hit or Miss
Couverture: Callebaut
White & Dark Chocolate with Macadamia, Madeira + Lemon Peel – fruit cake slabyrinth
Milk Chocolate w/ Cashews, Jack Daniels, Caramel & Fleur de Sel – pure putty
White Chocolate & Lavender, Primms No. 1, Chervil, Toasted Peppercorns – a soap block w/ cheesy sensation; flavors unevenly distributed except for sugar & waxed emulsifier throughout
Dark Chocolate with Pistachio, Cointreau, Dried Cherries & Orange Peel – dark fruit cake
Dark w/ Almonds, Aged Tequila + Ancho Chile – slight penetrator (the sensitive type)
