Here’s what I got in my very first Luxby!
Eh there’s a science to tasting chocolates one ok! Check out Luxby’s 5 step guide to tasting chocolates.
#1: Fearless Chocolate 75% Cacao Midnight
This has a really very strong, bold flavour to it. I found it interesting that although it has only has 2 ingredients in it: Organic Cacao and Organic Rapadura (unrefined whole cane sugar), but it’s very smooth and melts wonderfully in your mouth. Loving this. Do note that if you love the usual mass-produced commercial chocolates, you probably won’t like this. I like this cos of the dark, almost bitter taste to it. Very strong aftertaste too.

#2: Original Beans Beni Wild Harvest 66% Wild Dark Chocolate
This one is a lot easier for more people to like. When placed in room temperature for 5 mins, you can easily break a small part to try. It’s flavour is definitely a lot milder than the previous one but it’s equally as pleasing. I would totally recommend this to anyone. This has a delicate yet distinct taste with floral honey, sundered cranberries, melon and hints of jasmine tea.
#3: The Grenada Chocolate Company Organic Dark Chocolate with 71% Cocoa
This has a lovely thick and fudgy taste with a sharp intense floral note. I’m not sure what it is… but there’s something special in it’s taste. This is a lot thicker than the others as well. There’s something sourish in there as well but disappears quickly and the dark cocoa taste quickly takes over. Interesting.
From The Carribean.
In summary, I really like that through Luxby, I am able to discover premium chocolates from all around the world. I mean, look at the brands I got above. I’ve never heard of any of these! I never even knew there are so many different types of dark chocolates to begin with!
