Chocri Creations – Part III

On Monday and Wednesday, I reviewed bars of my own design. For my third and final bar, I decided to let Chocri take the lead and made one of their recommended bars, the Magical Forest. The Magical Forest is dark chocolate (64%) with blueberries, flower mix, and pine nuts. To jazz mine up a bit,…

Chocri Creations – Part II

On Monday, I introduced Chocri and one of the bars that I customized with 5 of their 90 toppings, purposefully shooting for a weird creation.

As with Monday’s bar, Chocomize was super generous with the toppings. They were well distributed, so it…

They’re the second customized chocolate company I’ve gotten to try free samples from (Chocri was the first; I think Chocomize has them beat on name cuteness). You start with your choice of base chocolate: a 56.8%…
