Just going to put this out there now. I want to be all humble but when part of my "job" becomes reviewing chocolate, sorry, but, I AM LIVING MY BEST LIFE.
 
Do you look at your partner with sad eyes every night and ask "Where's the chocolate?" Does chocolate not even need to be written on the shopping list?

You may be in the beginning stages of your addiction, where you don't mind a cheap fix like naughty Cadbury. But wouldn't it be nice to eat chocolate that wasn't just sugar and milk solids (and other questionable numbered ingredients), to support a chocolate business that is ethical and sustainable?

What You'll Find Here

1.) The details of the Crunchy Mint chocolate bar and some info on Chow Cacao themselves
2.) The reasons why I love it and what could be improved
3.) Best places to buy, including any discounts/sales we can track down for you

Who Is Chow Cacao Crunchy Mint For?

For the sake of continuity, we still included this question in our chocolate reviews even though it's probably better suited to other products. Because, really, who is Crunchy Mint for? Absolutely anyone!! If you don't like mint, you're missing out!
It's perfect for:

  • Vegans
  • People who love chocolate but also want to watch their sugar intake
  • Anyone who feels passionate about supporting small local family owned/run business
  • The obvious - chocolate lovers
  • Someone who reads and eats chocolate (scroll down - it'll make sense)

Chow Cacao Crunchy Mint Review by Sacky - Head Product Tester

The Chocolate

Mint chocolate is probably my favourite type of chocolate. It's pretty hard to make a bar of mint chocolate that I won't like but to make one that trumps all others, that's a feat.

Of course, my review is going to be totally subjective to what I like. Let me explain why Chow Cacao is my new fav minty choc.

Mint Chocolate


PROS

  • There's little of chunks of cacao nibs, I'm all about texture
  • It tastes like I've swabbed my mouth with freshly picked mint. Unlike other brands that use artificial flavours, Chow uses 100% Pure Peppermint Essential Oil.
  • It's vegan, I'm not vegan but too much dairy upsets me. Now I get to eat all the chocolate I want without being sick. Right?!?!
  • The chocolate. It's dark, mint chocolate must always be paired with dark chocolate. The darker the better. Putting mint into milk chocolate is like putting pineapple on pizza. (It should have never been allowed to leave the kitchen).

CONS

  • There's not enough in a box :(
  • While I think every penny is worth it, the price point would be intimidating for some people.

Raw Chocolate

The Brand

Chow Cacao as a brand is great. The love story behind bringing Chow Cacao to life is tear-worthy. Will and Trudy are an amazing couple with a few things in common. Passion for a simple and happy life, inspired to be in nature and an interest in looking after the world around them.

All their packaging is environmentally friendly (even what looks like plastic - isn't! - read below), their ingredients are sustainably sourced, organic where possible and the sweeteners natural. An absolute delight to deal with, half of the joy of getting chocolate is having a chat with them!

Crunchy Mint Ingredients:

Raw Cacao 70% (Nibs, Butter)*, Coconut Sugar*, 100% Pure Peppermint Essential Oil*, Himalayan Salt

*Certified Organic
 
Chow Cacao Nutritional Info


Features

Eco-Friendly Packaging

The boxes the chocolate bars come in are awesome! Much like a matchbox, where you slide the chocolate out on its own little tray. The outer & inner sleeve is printed with soy ink and 100% recyclable.

What's even cooler is that the inside doubles as a bookmark - what thoughtful legends!

Chow Cacao Book Mark


100% Plant-based Compostable "Plastic"

What looks like plastic around the chocolate is actually a 100% plant-based, home compostable material. It's heat-sealed for more freshness and longer-lasting flavours and even the way it wraps around the chocolate is satisfying.

There's no ripping off little corners, it ever so satisfyingly pulls open and the chocolate slides out effortlessly.

What Others Are Saying

5-star rating's all round on Google!!
Emily Frankie Edwards - "I am a great lover of dark chocolate & have to limit my intake so as not to be a full time addict... So when I choose to indulge I want the finest, highest quality & Chow Cacao is my no. 1 go to! These guys have perfected the art with the smoothest textures & perfect flavour choices & it is of course a much healthier option than the regular chocolates you find in mass produced supermarkets! Tk u for for taking us all to chocolate heaven Chow Cacao!"
And our absolute favourite review...
Jade Fitzpatrick - 'I once, over a few days, ate (and shared) an ugg boot full of multiple different flavours of chow cacao bars. I won these at a fundraiser to save the bees. I give this experience, and those bars, and the people I shared them with, and the super lovely people who made and donated them, and the bees... All 5 stars.'
