My first impressions of this box? It smelled incredible.
The March 2018 Grounded Goods theme was “Chocolate Lover” and included the following items:
~Cacoco Drinking Chocolate ($13.99): Cacoco Drinking Chocolate is made from ethically sourced, heirloom cacao that is harvested from Ecuadorian farms applying ecological and regenerative practices. I tend to think of drinking chocolate as being strictly “hot chocolate,” but this can be used in as a superfood mocha, in smoothies, as a topping (maybe on ice-cream?) or even just by the handful.
~Nova Dark Chocolate Ganache ($10): Nova Dark Chocolate Ganache is made with a select blend of our Nicaraguan & Ecuadorian cacao, the highest quality organic filtered coconut oil, and organic cane sugar. It’s super rich and tastes like a dream when melted on top of ice-cream.
~Nova Craft Chocolate 70% Nicaragua Single Origin Bar ($6): This bar is made from Bisiesto variety cacao, grown in the coastal region of Nicaragua along the Pacific Ocean. It has such a deep flavor that just a little square is enough to satisfy you.
~French Broad Chocolates Nicaragua 68% ($11): I think this was my favorite item in the box. It has a flavor profile which includes buttered toast, black tea, and brown sugar. Again it’s incredibly rich, and just a square is enough.
~One Bar One Tree Original Beans Papua Kerafat 68% (~$6.10): This bar has a “presence of pear and dried fruit.” It is gluten and dairy-free and made from “ultra rare” beans in Papua, Indonesia.
~Alter Eco Organic Dark Mint Truffle (~$5): The final item in the box is Alter Eco Organic Dark Mint Truffles. I have had these before and was thrilled to see them again. They are FANTASTIC!
All totaled I came up with a value of $51 for the March 2018 Grounded Goods. That’s just slightly over the cost of the box, but it was well curated and delicious!
