Below some of the best chocolate subscription serves and gift baskets to ever grace the Internet. You're welcome!
In this monthly subscription box, you’ll receive three unique chocolate bars from featured craft, bean-to-bar chocolate makers from around the country. You'll also learn more about how the chocolate is made and what gives it that special taste with a write-up of what you’re enjoying and where you can find more. “It’s a special type of chocolate where the chocolate makers personally source the cocoa from local farms all over the world. They roast the cocoa and hand process the chocolate in micro batches,” says the website. "The personal relationships the chocolate makers develop with the cocoa farmers enable fair wages and labor, as well as education and training. These relationships promote sustainable and organic farming techniques." So you can enjoy amazing chocolate while helping to support a worthy cause.
