Oh Lawd! The month’s Tasting Box by Foodie Pages was to die for! When they announced it would be an all chocolate box I got super excited! I set a reminder so I wouldn’t forget to order. I would’ve been so disappointed if I had missed out on this one. Foodie Pages Tasting Box goes on sale on the first of every month at noon EST. They only sell 50 boxes, so you have to act fast, because they sell out quick!
The TASTING BOX includes 4 or 5 scrumptious tastes to enjoy, made by our favourite Canadian food makers and delivered to your door.This is your chance to sample and learn from the incredible culinary talents right here in our own backyard!
I really enjoy the Tasting Box and getting to sample some of Canada’s finest foodmakers. This month most of the foodmakers were from Ontario and even one from Ottawa - Yayy!
I am not going to review each sample, because each piece was DELICIOUS! Some of the best chocolate I’ve ever had! I will give a description of each sample, because they all deserve to be acknowledged. We ate everything right away and we were in heaven! This is some serious chocolate! Not that cheap stuff at all! You could tell it was made with love and with quality ingredients.
Here’s what we got:
The Chocolate TOFFLE from Ultimately Chocolate (Gore Bay, ON)
A delectably smooth milk chocolate truffle, surrounded by a dark chocolate toffee. All natural and made with Organic and Fair Trade ingredients, the TOFFLE is a completely new way to experience fine chocolate.
Chocolate Bark from This! Is Chcolate (Astorville, ON)

With mouth-watering, Brazilian family recipes and traditional French baking techniques, Carolina’s fudgy brownies transport you back to childhood. Handmade and baked to order using the finest ingredients: premium Belgian chocolate, local eggs and butter, and pure Madagascar bourbon vanilla.
I can’t say it enough - this box was amazing! Chocolate so good, we made sounds while we were devouring it. The only problem was we wanted more! Sampling chocolate this good was just enough to satisfy, but you still wanted more! If you love chocolate I recommend checking out the vendors from this box at foodiepages.ca and ordering some. You can thank me later LOL! Did you order the Tasting Box? What do you think of this subscription box?
